    Default Has anyone tried the new Initio Musk Therapy?

    Has anyone tried the new Initio Musk Therapy? It came out at the beginning of the month. The bottle looks like Rehab except gold emblem instead of silver.

    I just recently purchased it. Haven't given it a full- days wearing yet. First impression is that it's a creamy sort of lemon scent, soft, but long lasting.

    Redolessence just did a review on Youtube, you can hear about here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Vw98LGKzWo

    He says it's a complex fragrance.

    There's also one review on Frarantica.

    Some Youtubers like him are affiliated with Initio, so I don't put much weight on their words on it

    You mean all Youtuber's who have at least 5k subs? It's a given, but that comes with the territory. Most people should know if they're watching a Youtube review, especially on a brand new frag, that there's a 90% chance it was sponsored.

    Youtubers tend to be fans or affiliates of Initio or PDM and already want to like the fragrance. Ill wait for the organic reviews to start rolling in from regular consumers, before I decide to purchase this one.

    Oh ya! I recently bought Lacoste Challenge, and I actually like it a bit. I might buy the flanker to it soon too.

    Got my nose on it today, the first hour or so has a clean musk haze like effect that has some citrus’s in the background weaving in & out.
    This stage reminded me of Atomic Rose without the rose.

    Forgot about about it for awhile as I tested other fragrances & when I came back to it, it had a totally unique drydown.

    It smelled nothing like the opening.

    Meh weak scent. The initial spray is amazing then it turns into an unpleasant skin scent rather fast. Def a pass.

    This was exactly the feedback I was waiting for. Saved me $330.00. Based on my past experience with these sorts of releases, the biggest mistake one can make is rushing out buying these overhyped, overpriced Initio scents based on Youtube reviews, only for them to completely fall off everyone's radar, and/or start being completely dismissed as a mediocre scent, 3 months after its release. But by then youre stuck with your purchase. Gotta wait for the feedback from real consumers.

    So now days later its growing on me. I think I went anosmic to it because yesterday I sprayed my palm with 2 sprays at 7am as I left the house and love the opening. By 3pm my lady friend and I were at whole foods and she says something smells really good and fresh (my neck had oud for greatness which isnt a freshie) so I put my palm to her nose and she says ‘omg yes this is it its soo good’ so my surprise as it was 8 hours since I sprayed it

    Generally, I consider peoples initial visceral reaction to a scent to be their most authentic response. (Which is how I wound up falling for the early hype for other scents..lol)..so tbh the "unpleasant skin scent" part is really all I needed to hear to know this isnt something I'd appreciate, nor a risk I'd be willing to take, for $330. But Im glad to know youre warming up to it now. Definitely keep us updated

    Yes. I always think of pineapple syrup with musk when I wear it. Neutral for me though my spouse has gone out of his way to compliment it.
    Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

    I recently got a sample of it and it’s ridiculous how good it smells. Both my wife and I are head over heels. Full bottle coming for my birthday in a few weeks.

    I especially love the initial strong blackcurrant note which gives it a fruity but not too sweet opening. It then lingers on as an extremely smooth, always slightly fruity musk.

    I am not really good at explaining individual notes, but I am always surprised about what other noses smell. pineapple syrup? No way, José. At least not to me.

    This will be my first Initio, I think they have a bunch of excellent releases (Rehab, Side Effect, Oud for Greatness - which will be my fall/winter buy).

    Definitely try to sample it, the price is steep (in Europe I can get it for €200) but oh so worth it.
