Absolutely amazing! Beautiful, beautiful deer musk! Fast shipping, amazing free sample of Ambar Kasturi (so good I already ordered a bottle of), and the best customer service on Etsy! If you're used to really strong, shouting commercial attars or perfumes, some of these might seem light to you...but that's the subtlety of these beautiful natural ingredients: they're for you to sniff, not for others around you to sneeze from or get headaches from haha. These oils leave a wonderful smell on your clothes for the next day too!
I did not expect this to be so musk-forward, but it's absolutely lovely. The musk note is a bit animalic at first, but after a while the rose and saffron start to shine. Lasts for a very long time.
This blend is superior for musk lovers. It is such an exceptional blend! I find myself continually 'sniffing' my wrist where I placed as I just can't seem to get enough of exploring - like my brain cannot comprehend such an exquisite combination - it arouses my senses and I just want more. It is tamed, balanced and beautiful - pronounced musk tamed with the beauty of the saffron and roses! Will not be disappointed. Munira, thank you for this recommendation and the great samples. Arrived in timely perfect condition.
The blend of the saffron and musk works magnificently in this attar. The dry woody spiciness of saffron is tamed but yet further enhanced by the musk, which itself is balanced by the saffron and appears sweet and powdery and ever so slightly animalic in the warmest and most comforting manner imaginable.
