THE MUSC by Essential Parfums at Indigo Perfumery
From the author and Senior Perfumer, Master Perfumer Calice Becker, on The Musc:
“I imagined this fragrance as a cloud of enveloping and comforting musk. A delicious musk blended with red ginger, lavender, a radiant floral heart and soft, woody tones of a sublime sandalwood album from Australia. I like to add a dose of intrigue, because nothing catches the attention like a touch of something unexpected.”
At once fresh, honeyed, and warm, The Musc is a subtle blend of captivating scents. It opens with red ginger from Laos and natural
lavandin grosso from France. Natural and sustainable beeswax brings a creamy sweetness to the heart, paired with a pure note of
Nirvanolide musk. Australia’s natural sandalwood punctuates the blend with warm, woody tones. Replanted 20 years ago, Australia’s
Sandalwood Album provides Aboriginal communities with protection and sustainability.
Notes: Red Ginger, Lavandin Grosso, Beeswax, Musk, Australian Sandalwood

I did a blind buy with this perfume, and I have to say I'm happily surprised by what a sexy and clean, comforting scent this is. My husband immediately noticed in a very positive way, and a stranger told me I smell good. This is a very well blended perfume, the lavender isn't medicinal, the ginger isn't too spicy, the beeswax isn't too sweet, and the musk/sandalwood is just slightly powdery. Nothing in this is overbearing, yet is has a nice scent projection and longevity (I've been wearing this 3 hours so far with no issues). I can see wearing this year round, but it would go great with a cashmere sweater, wear it on date night, and it can even be a great bedtime fragrance. It leans slightly feminine, but I can see men wearing this without an issue.
Addictive and achingly beautiful, The Musc is a scent I never want to be without. Honey-dripping beeswax and gentle spices mingle with a musk as beautiful as a song. I plan to purchase a backup bottle when mine is down to the halfway point (which won't be long). Heavenly.
