    Default Best musk fragrance?

    I was wandering what your top musk fragrances are? I would really like to veer into the world of musks yet know so little about them. I prefer anamalic musks as opposed to body odour musks.

    thanks

    +1 on MKK and Musc Ravageur. I also like SMN Musk, though it's not particularly animalic.

    A great, often underrated option is Muschio Bianco by Acca Kappa- extremely good value for money, a clean, soapy, almost "fresh out of the laundry"-smelling crisp fragrance, good unisex suitability too

    I have bottles of:
    Kiehl's Musk
    Muscs Koublai Khan
    Musc Nomade
    Mure et Musc
    Various musk oils (including Ajmal's AA Musk Ghazelle which is by far the most animalic) and synthetics that I use to mix my own.

    If forced to pare down to but 1, I'd keep the Kiehls. No doubt.

    If you are looking for animalic musk and not "musk" check out Aluwwah.

    thanks for all the suggestions. If anyone has further Arabian musk experience then feel free to add to the list above.

    I'm not sure what you mean by anamalic as opposed to body odors since we're animals, but here goes:

    MKK is my favorite musk, but it does have some human body odor aspect.
    Dzing! is not usually considered a musk, but it smells like animals to me, esp. puppies and elephants. (Who knows why?)

    Try musks from the Indian Sub-continent, there are so many types of musks in soild and oil form, you should try to get the oil form if you know someone there, those scents are absolutely gorgeous

    I never thought of Miller Harris' L'air de Rien as musky. All I smell is sweet neroli , vanilla and buttersoft leather in the base. Could it be that I am anosmic to the musk that it contains? Ive heard reviews of it where they liken it to the dirtiest thing they ever smelled in their life.

    I'm not a big musk fan, but I stumbled across Bond no 9 New York Musk and really like it. I've tried most of Bn9 stuff, and find most of it awful, artificial, but projection monsters...NY Musk and NY Amber rock, I have full bottles of both.
