Reviews of Silver Musk

I agree with some of the reviewers here.
Spray this on and you will smell like freshly laundered hotel sheets and as such you will smell oddly fresh, inexpensive, with a very common scent. I am sure some linen style air fresheners come close. There is a tiny bite of musk if you listen carefully. It does last however.
Why would you want to pay £40 per 10ml to smell like this ?
Not me.

Barely a thumbs up. Soapy citrus musk opening with a strange warm sweet gourmand undertone. I think that I don't like it because cookies and soap don't mix.

Nasomatto Silver Musk is a clean, slightly aldehydic (yes dusty/metallic for a while) and translucent accomodation of un-vegetal white musk (plus faint spices, ozonic calone, aromatic patterns, citrus, probably grapefruit and pale floral notes) over a base of soapy benzoin, may be cedarwood and neutral coco-glucoside or lactic acid. I feel the silver/metallic vibe almost throughout while the dry down is basically a pale, smoother and silkier sort of ambroxan more properly than a "serious" musk (I mean this musk smells miles far from an high quality "acamporaesque" one). Anyway I like the bitter herbal/tobacco/woods dry down undertone floating over synthetic amber&musk. Acceptable but nothing else.

Fresh aquatic slap on aldehydes and white musks, basically some sort of exaltolide/galaxolide wrap-up with some vague earthy notes on the very base, and a slight ambery feel too. Shampoos and supermarket deodorants. The evolution is pretty much on the same path – even worse, just less fresh and more musky. It soon settles on a weird accord halfway between a warm ambrettolide-gingerbread note and that white musks accord, with a persistent metallic feel, which finally evolves on a salty-musky-clean drydown with a subtle and unpleasant kind of "sweat" aftertaste. Cheap and useless, luckily it's at least quite delicate. If Gualtieri really managed to sell even just one bottle of this scent at that incredibly crazy price, than he should be featured as a "case study" in marketing books.

Nasomatto Silver Musk by Nasomatto - Initially, one is treated to a swirling mandarin, with its sweetly tart, orangey facet. Lavender, with its fresh floral aspect, commingles with the mardain to create a zesty, herbal presence. A nascent soapiness from white musk emerges in the background. Transitioning, a lightly sweetish cyclamen carries itself to the fore along with a more softly diffusive and slightly powdery white musk. A characteristically aloof iris, with its violet-like, woody facet, wrests for prominence. Segueing, a faint metallic note, akin to metal shavings, ephemerally surfaces. A magical aldehyde imparts its sparkly clean and fresh vibe. And, a mild hedione diffuses its subtly green sensation. The white musk has taken on a waxy brightness. An alluring drydown ensues. This somewhat elegant composition has average projection and very good longevity.

"Silver Musk? I've to taste it! The name is really promising, metal and musk wow, I guess it's one of those cold metallic but very refined perfumes I'm looking for..." Naaaaaaa, not at all. This is a clean musk with a good sillage and good lasting power, that's it. Nothing special, nothing very important, just one in the crowd.

Two more things: First, Nasomatto packaging is amazing and so are the bottles, really really really beatiful (not enough, thou). Second "Silver Musk aims to evoke superhero magnetism"...are you guys kidding us? Ok it is funny and I really hope this was you're aim.
