Musky Perfume

What does musky perfume smell like?

Musky perfumes typically smell earthy, woody, or animalic. Today’s synthetic musk perfume note combines power with incredible versatility, adding mellow undertones to diverse scent combinations. Floral and woody notes are most common – think notes like jasmine, rose, sandalwood, and cedarwood – while deep and earthy aromas such as vanilla, amber, and patchouli provide the perfect warmer backdrop.

Which perfumes contain musk notes?

You’ll find musk in just about every perfume on the market today, alongside skincare products, scented candles, and more. And while musky scents have traditionally been used in men’s colognes, their intimate, grounding qualities have also made them very popular in women’s fragrances. The following are some of the best musky perfumes, according to Fragrantica, that may help provide some inspiration for your next perfume purchase.

Perhaps begin your foray into musk with Burberry’s Touch Eau de Toilette. Aromatic, spicy, and brimming with effortless confidence, this formula offers a classic musk note derived from tonka bean with a spicy pepper undertone. A woody dry-down adds further depth. Aficionados of musky scents will also like Diptyque’s Do Son Eau de Parfum, a unisex fragrance that combines musky perfume notes with exquisite white floral accords. The result is a floral but heavily musky fragrance that simply oozes a sensual allure. Date night material? You better believe it.

As for musky perfumes for the ladies, never look past Lancôme’s Idôle Eau de Parfum. Fresh, cool, and shimmery, Idôle embodies a modern chypre layered in sweet florals (mainly rose or jasmine), woody patchouli, and creamy musk. A refined, sensible scent for the woman who’s determined to live life her way. And if you like Idôle, you will love Tom Ford’s Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum. Infused with rose, black orchid, orange blossom, honey, and bergamot – this heady, musky perfume for her has just the right harmony of sultry and sweet notes you could ever wish for. Finally, there’s the ever-iconic Chanel’s Chance Eau de Parfum, a timeless perfume that has undoubtedly earned its reputation as one of the best feminine musk fragrances of all time. The scent offers a fusion of jasmine and iris balanced by white musk, then topped off by pink pepper for a burst of freshness that will last you throughout the day.
