Key Notes of Musk Oil

What Does Musk Oil Smell Like

Musk Oil by Jōvan is a rich and voluptifying fragrance that hints at the exotic. The perfume kicks off with a lively hint of bergamot, adding a fresh, citrusy zing. There's a touch of peach, offering a soft, fruity sweetness, while the star anise introduces a slightly spicy, licorice-like twist.

As the top notes fade, the heart notes come into play. Cocoa butter wraps the scent in a warm, creamy layer, harmonizing beautifully with the soothing lavender. The ylang-ylang, a tropical blossom, introduces a floral element that's both rich and subtly sweet.

But it's the base of the perfume that really defines its character. The musk, as the dominant note, comes through powerfully, adding a deep, sensual and somewhat animalic quality to the fragrance. Patchouli brings in an earthy touch, while a soft hint of vanilla adds a whisper of sweetness. Vetiver rounds it off with a hint of woodiness, giving the scent a grounding note, and leaving a lasting impression of a warm, powdery and enigmatic scent that's both oriental and sweet. This perfume truly combines the vibrant and the sensual, resulting in a distinctive aroma that leaves a trail of mystery.
