    Default Any light "yellow/skin" musk fragrances?

    Hello everyone Im looking for some advice here. I would like a musk dominant fragrance of a very specific type. It should be closer to white musks than to animalic. I call it a yellow musk however because Id like something that does have the , if not animal, then human skin feel. It is not a completely white, cloudy, airy, ethereal musk and yet can be worn in summer time (even if not high heat).

    Ambergris and coconut sometimes give this effect. Iris sometimes also has that almost skin like creaminess and can maintain a freshness. Khiels Musk was enjoyable but felt the musk gave a light brown feel rather than the yellow/white Im looking for. Suprisingly BR540 has the right style of airy yet not transparent musk I'm looking for- However if this could be incorporated into a more summer viable option it would be ideal.

    thank you for the suggestions!

    Also I have smelled this style of musks in many women's perfumes but they tend to be quite powdery. I couldn't recall the names of these but powder should be minimal. More citrusy or spicy if musk doesn't dominate.

    Silver mountain water also has the right idea. Im looking for the slightly warmer but still fresh counterpart to SMW's icy, cold feel

    Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme. The musky dry down is excellent. White musk plus tomato leaf, grapefruit, and cedar, rendering it off white, although more light green than yellow. Zero powder or sweetness.

    Aqua Vitae Forte, though it isn't light. For something lighter, perhaps Aqua Vitae.
