Another musk classic…Musks are important because they speak to the raw sensuality inherent in all humans regardless of gender, class or time period. It's always so disappointing when the scents of your youth get ruined this way and get lost forever. It is almost impossible to talk about Musk without thinking of Alyssa Ashley, my name is in fact inextricably linked to hers. That aside, I must say I am very pleased with this fragrance and my dear friend Moonsparrow's investment hasn't gone to waste. Alicyclic musks I don't know too much about, their sort of new but from what I've heard they are also no match for nitro musks.

this just is barely perceptible on my skin-i get the soft skin musk, some iris and maybe some oakmoss? Today Musk by Alyssa Ashley is a market-leading fragrance and in many countries it is considered a "SCENT OF WORSHIP". I find it interesting that this scent boasts about being unisex, because it smells so powdery and that's not a note often found in men's scents.

Contrary to what some believe "real" musk hasn't been used in most mainstream fragrance for almost 100 years! Baby Soft, Debbie Gibson Electric Youth, a Tea Rose perfume from Mervyn's, Avon Sweet Honesty, Primo, and Exclamation (although I was allergic to that last one! So well blended that you can't pick out any one note, besides the musk, which melts into my skin and disappeared. We regret that we cannot redispatch/refund sooner than the timescales listed above as these are the terms set out by the couriers. Being a unisex fragrance, it was also a way to blend with male teenagers who where wearing the same scent and the black and white commercial images were definitively hinting to a scent used to attract a man (or a woman).

It's very soapy, if you've ever used Johnson's Baby Soap (the bar kind that comes in a pink box) you might recognize this as to me it's nearly identical. Nitro-musks were once used extensively in perfumery and are now largely prohibited in many countries because they can't be fully cleaned out by sewage treatment plants and accumulate in fish and such. I wouldn't bother with it except for the fact, there's still a TINY bit of that craved original scent. Compared with Jovan (which I also got) I would say that this is slightly less woody, a bit more green and a bit sweeter. Pepe Le Phew would be disappointed with this musk, because there is absolutely zero skank or fecal note here, which is common in musk notes especially those using the musk of the civet.

After realising that I LOVE musk and the sweetness that comes with it, I've been trying lots of Musk oils and sprays to fine the ones I like most. Irisi and Oak moss accompany it in a composed and elegant manner, giving it that that famous " scent of clean " which encourages and brings peace with oneself.

The resulting fragrance combines over 100 quality ingredients to give a soft, unobtrusive fragrance to be worn by both men and women. I love the way perfumes are able to bring back memories you didn't even know you had: I smelled the tester for Musk by Alyssa Ashley and immediately felt like I was 5 years old again, in my gymnastics class (my teacher must have worn this because I thought of her)!

I thought about getting it again for that purpose, but I am afraid to find out it's ruined by reformulation.
