The legendary standing of this modern classic has been well established for over 20 years. Arguable the most known and most beloved musk fragrance on the luxury market, it wears its crown beautifully adorned in top notes of lavendar and citrus, followed by a middle of cinnamon and clove. It’s in the base where you will find its true jewels, though. While sweet woods and rich ambers and vanilla line the path, it’s the musk that blazes the trail with its sexy, animalic verve. Like most Frederic Malle fragrances, it best performs with time and on skin. It starts heavy, ebbs and flows, transforms, and never sits still for the entire wear.
