I'm a huge fan of traditional black musks. This one is really different to others I've tried. The background is what you would expect but there's an attractive soapy overlay. It's the opening that's the really interesting part. It's open, air and almost vegetal in quality. It reminds me of aspects of Tataouine. Strong recommend if you are like me and collect black musks. Longevity is excellent but it has only moderate sillage.
