musk perfume

Musk, is a series of three fragrances inspired by the rich perfumery traditions of the Middle East. Inspired by musk, a coveted scent from times of antiquity, the perfumer has created three unique scent journeys with the mystical and sensual white musk as the central muse. The precious high quality oriental essences harmoniously play along the contrasting, zesty and sparkling modern notes, creating rich and sophisticated signature expressions of timeless ingredients reinterpreted in a modern way.

Hareer is a magical fragrance that reflects the softness of silk. The fragrance opens on fresh aromatic notes of artemisia and davana. The seductive rose is the blossoming queen of the fragrance with a multifaceted combination of fresh Turkish rose essence and intense Egyptian rose absolute. The rich rose nuances are further enhanced and lent a sparkle by a modern red fruit zest of raspberry. In the base notes, white musks enhance the contrast of strong and deep woody tonalities of sandalwood and palisander, softened by an addictive and utterly sensual amber.

Sparkling Lemon Rasberry

Types of Musk: 

Though present-day animalic musk is mostly synthetic and can be criticized as unethical to a certain extent, all types of musks add their special note to a fragrance. 

  • Animalic Musk: Originally sourced from the musk deer the scent is prohibited in modern use and is artificially produced to give the same warm, musky, and gamey attributes.
  • Synthetic Musk: These include artificial musks such as Galaxolide and Ambrettolide that are synthesized in the laboratory with a multi-use note, as mentioned above. Mainly, they are applied in recent fragrance production processes. 
  • Plant-Based Musk: The natural musk smells opposed to synthetic ones include softer florals that are refreshing; they are originally sourced from natural substances such as ambrette seeds.

How to Choose a Musk Perfume 

Deciding on the most suitable musk perfume is more or less a process of selection. 

  • Know Your Preference: Choose if you want to have a soft musk or immediate with a heavy and dense scent. 
  • Test on Skin: The final piece of advice would be: do consider spraying perfumes on your skin as musk can behave diversely to different people. 
  • Consider the Occasion: Fragrance specialist musks are great for the day while deeper musks are best for in the evening or night. 
  • Longevity and Sillage: Take note of how many hours the perfume lasts, and how far it goes.

I wasn't sure what to expect before walking in, but it exceeded my expectations. They had a great variety of scents, and a good selection of the ones I wanted to smell before buying. April and her coworker were amazing at helping me pick the perfect gift for my friend. The prices are reasonable, and I will definitely be back.
