Rating: While I'm not a musk lover I have plenty of customers who love musk. This has sold well in wax melts. I'll update when I soap with it.
By:Jennifer, Irondale, Missouri Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Apr-2016
Rating: I'm afraid I don't care for this fragrance. I have tried mixing it with other fragrances only for it to cause the other fragrances to smell not as good as they normally do. And I'm sad I feel like I wasted my money. But live and learn - one cannot like allll fragrance oils one purchases afterall. I'm just thankful I only purchased the 3.3 oz bottle of it. Must is something I would more likely buy in larger supplies because it is something to be mixed with things but I'm glad I tried it first.There's something that seems cloying to me about it - also it smells to me like old fashioned soap and I don't mean in my soaps but right out of the bottle - not what I expected. It is sweet to be sure but just not what I had imagined at all. I was expecting something alluring and deep but I wouldn't so not call this deep but rather sticky more like. In my view I should likely toss it. But I'm more likely to use it in weird stuff that I'm purposely trying to make odd - like a Halloween soap for instance maybe. Or some crazy/scary/joke thing.

Rating: I found this musk fragrance to be stupendous. Blends well with my lighter EOs for a wonderful aroma, though not particularly versatile. I didn't find it to be as masculine as most musks, although some of my customers felt it to be very masculine. This is a fragrance that proves every nose is different. Masculine or not, everyone loves it. Generally, it's quite good at softening up stronger scents. And for the price, this cannot be beat. Thank you ND!

Rating: There are so many excellent oils available from N.D.
I have been thrilled with almost all of the 30+ I have purchased.
Not so much this time....This musk is not my idea of musk at all. This one is extremely sweet and floral. Top notes of rose and or jasmine. Nothing spicy or woodsy as in description. I have numerous superb musks that I have purchased throughout the past 4 decades.
I prefer a musk that is very subtle at first. NOT intensely floral. then blooms into an intensely sexy smell that lasts for many hours. It seems a white musk like that is almost totally extinct.
It is possible this may be used to blend with a more bitter oil, or as a carrier. I will experiment with that. However by itself.... it smells a bit like fabric softener dryer sheets.
You want to try an incredible oil? try the Sicilian lemon oil! Such incredible depth. One of my favorites.
By:Harry, Oreland, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Sep-2012
Rating: This is a very clean-smelling musk. Not so much like soap or fresh laundry, but more like clean skin in clean clothes. It is fresh and light and smells great close to the skin. I use it in lotions and it really adds a subtle extra loveliness to them. Because it is a rather light scent, you can be liberal with it. But even though its overall effect is kind of light, it is robust enough to last a decent while. I works well neat as a perfume -- lasts for a good handful of hours while remaining a close-to-the-skin kind of scent. Highly recommend.

Rating: Have been buying from NDA for over 2 years now, and this was one of the first fo's I bought. I love different types of Musk, & I love the fact that this Musk is not overpowering. It is a gentle, lingering, soft Musk scent that can appeal to either male or female. Will continue to use as long as NDA offers it.
By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: This is a great generic musk. It works well as a fixative in perfumes. It's not overpowering, like so many other fragrance oils. Actually, the sent is rather soft, and so you'll likely need much more than you initially imagine, so I'd recommend going one size up in your purchase if you like the scent of musk. It does a great job of softening other overpowering scents and just bringing together a blend. It does smell a little soapy, but I imagine many people would like that clean scent.
By:Lauretta, San Diego, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jun-2010
Rating: Out of the 6 new fragrance oils I purchased, this is my favorite! I will definitely be buying this again! I asked a guy friend what he thought of it. He said it smelled more feminine to him, but he really liked it!
Rating: WOW!! Customers are going GA-GA for this CP soap. One of my best sellers! The FO is a bit sharp OOB but when the soap is actually used, there is a gentle, warm, lingering scent that's left behind. Didn't notice any acceIeration in my rebatch. I am so glad i purchased this! 500ml should go a long way! Made a bath salt to match!
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Loved this one! It blends so well with so many other oils. The Musk scent is not too overpowering, nor is it too weak. A perfect balance of Musk aroma.
By:Anthony, Sparta, Tennessee Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jan-2010
Rating: I LOVE this. I mixed it with English Lavend FO and dabbed behind my ears and on my wrist. I couldn't figure out if the scent smelled masculine or not on me but I didn't care. I love it. I have asked my husband to try it out to see how it smells on him. I used it in mp soap and my son & daughter love it!
By:Dawn, Virginia Beach, Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Oct-2010
Rating: A clean, white musky scent. lovely. and unisex. blends well.
By:Azadeh, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: sorry to say that i don't like this. i think the fragrance left behind when it dries off feels like cheap perfume. Maybe I just don't care for fragrance and prefer essential oil.
Rating: I combined a small amount with distilled water and used it as a clothing spray on my shirt. It's very light and masculine and unnoticeable until someone gets within a couple of feet. It gets nice comments.
By:David, Plaistow, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Aug-2008
Rating: This is a delicious lightly floral musk! It smells clean and fresh. Definately going to be a favorite!
Rating: Extremely sexy! The best musk I've found. I blend with pine, fir, and clove for a very sexy, very masculine, and very popular men's soap. I don't usually use fragrance oils, but I could not resist this one.
Rating: Very soft, light scent that men and women seem to like equally. Neutral enough to mix with any floral scent.
By:Leanne, Swift Current, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This scent screams "sexy" to me. I'll likely try it on its own, but also look forward to blending it with fruit and spice notes.
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Subtle and smooth. Love it with a little vanilla! Have also tried a hint with bamboo teak (the boys like it).
By:Debra, Menominee, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Apr-2008
Rating: uniSEXY!!! A must try. Rocks mixed with vanilla fo!! Earthy but clean.
By:Shannon, Schenectady, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jan-2006
Rating: Lovely. A soft, subtle musk, clean and gender-neutral.
By:Maggie, Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: oooooh! This is a lovely Musk. More feminine in my opinion than a lot of musks. Very subtle & sexy. Accelerates trace in cold process. Work with cooler temps and have your moulds ready! Move fast! But it's sooooooo pretty it's worth the trouble. A good blender too.
