    looks like someone is a little defensive about declaring that Russian-sourced musk is presumptively legit.

    implausible, but a particularly tough sell for a crowd who generally wouldn't even buy a designer fragrances from Russian-based ebay sellers.

    I hope readers slogged through to the reviews -- the best part.

    I hope that readers choose to read through the superb reviews and the banter following. As a whole, it holds the exercises necessary to understand the views of others and further, to assist in the development of critical, listening, reading and thinking skills.

    Thanks MzM - yes, he does, it's his eBay page here: https://www.ebay.ie/sch/themostbeaut...1&_ipg=&_from=
    Having tested much of his work, I can really recommend his attars that focus on roses, vetiver, musk, and green/jungle ouds. Enjoy!

    Thank you for this extremely detailed and informative article. I also appreciate you pointing out the hypocritical stance of those who decry the use of real musk because of animal cruelty while at the same time consuming farmed animal products and fish.
