I have always been drawn to the more woodsy, musky scents. I think there is something so sexy about a woman wearing a traditionally more masculine scent. Here are some of my current favorite perfumes and Eau de toilettes...
1. Narciso Rodriguez For Her $56.95 Musk is at the heart of For Her. The fragrant harmony of the musk expresses itself through three pulsations; honey flower, radiant amber, and tactile wood. This fragrant harmony develops gently and slowly, rounding out into the warm tones of sunkissed skin, dusted in a soft, velvety sensuality
2. L'Artisan Parfmeur Navegar $95 Inspired by the “black diamond”, pepper, Navegar perfectly showcases the dual nature of this king of spices, its warmth and its bracing freshness. With notes of rum, lime, ginger and anise, it is a piquant cocktail resting on a luxurious base of precious woods and incense.
3. L'Artisan Parfumeur Patchouli Patch $95 A very chic and modern version of patchouli with a dash of white musk. A rare and innovative blend. Patchouli Patch is truly a delight, just like velvet on skin.
4. Khiels Musk 1921 Oil $26 This modern version of our classic signature scent is based on the unique blend that is Kiehl's Musk. Our special Musk "recipe" begins with an initial creamy, fresh citrus burst of Bergamot Nectar and Orange Blossom...followed by a soft floral bouquet of Rose, Lily, Ylang-Ylang and Neroli. Finally, Original Musk Eau de Toilette dries down to a warm, sensual Oriental finish of Tonka Nut, White Patchouli and, of course, Musk...the soul of this distinctively modern scent.
5. L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc $95 From its fine bottle initially rises the fresh enchanting scent of the blackberry season followed by its fruity heart with the soft, intoxicating sensuality of musk reinforcing the blackberry note, bringing forth sensuous memories to make you delicately dizzy.
6. Pacifica Mediterannean Fig $22 Earth meets ocean in this green, full-bodied cocktail of sweet fig, palm, cyclamen, moss, and clove, all set in a luscious sandalwood base. Sensuous and complex, it's a wonderfully imaginative take on classic fig. The scent of a fig tree is like nothing else in the world—this essence is easy to wear and layer, for both men and women. Embark on a fragrant journey, full of life, history, and lore. This blend is inspired by the brilliant, classic French interpretation of fig, using all the elements of the tree, creating the sense of standing under its branches.
