Kiehl's Signature Scent

Rebecca M: I have been searching for something to replace my signature scent of Coty's Wild Musk Oil that I have worn since 1973. I have been very disappointed in what I have found. I do not want the complicated fragrances that are out there... I just want something simple and sensual with the simplicity of the oil ... I am hoping this is it. Mar 22, 2013
Began using due allergic to strong or flowery perfumes. Tried the roll-on a few years ago & it wasn't the same, so back to the "original" altho not certain it isn't slightly
less potent than nearly 50 yrs ago.
Still my fav smell goods.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Anne M: Musk is unique in that it is affected by yor individual body chemistry. Men can wear this as well as women. I usually interperet "Girly" as being floral, and Musk is not that for sure.
Try it, I think you will get positive feedback, especially for the great "clean" smell.

Yanni P: In my opinion, yes. This Musk essence oil smells very soft, soapy and clean, but it's definitely not girly. In fact, I think it'll even smell sexy on a man, given the right body chemistry. It's very versatile and easy to wear, and smells like one of those 'your skin but better' scents. Aug 20, 2013

Tara L: Oh my yes. It was my male friend who turned me onto the fragrance. I mix mine into my own scent with other essential oils. I would recommend a small bottle to start; everyone's body chemistry affects scent. Aug 20, 2013

nancy s: Hi,
The answer to whether men can use original
musk oil, the answer is yes. The 3 men in my life
use it and no one would ever acuse them of smelling "girly". They alao use the speay.

Alisa P: Totally! Its a really nice scent. Maybe strong to start but fades nice and subtle. My only concern is the oil drips out of the cap a bit of the bottle. Great scent for men snd women Aug 20, 2013

A shopper asked: Do you think that the musk oil in the bottle smells the same as the one with the rollerball applicator? Jan 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (1)
Sandra J: I've used Musk Essence Oil for over 20 years friends know this is the "go to for a gift" for me. No, I do not think they smell the same and I simply don't know why when it is suppose to be the same product. I want mine in the bottle even though the roller would be more convenient. Now, I don't need the convenience to carry with me daily since morning application and the musk is on all day and night, one reason I love it so. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT, am a entertainer that travels world wide and it doesn't matter what country I am in people love "MY SCENT". :) Jan 17, 2013
Reply to Sandra Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ann A: Yes, I do believe the scent smells the same, it's the same perfumed oil. I wish the rollerball were refillable. I think the spray smells a little different than the oil. It still smells great, just not as lush or something. The only issue I have with the rollerball is that it doesn't seem to deliver much product. In fact, I thought the first one I ever bought was defective! I've come to the realization that it's just not the greatest delivery system, though it is portable, I always keep one in my purse. Jan 17, 2013

alexandra a: No I do not .....for 40 year musk old is the only scent I have ever used. When they came out with the roller application I was weary but had to buy it because the bottles were no longer available. I was very unhappy with the roller bottle, lucky the bottles came back. Only 1/4 of the one roller bottle have was ever used, I not ever happy with it. I thank Kiehl's that they started selling the bottles again and hope I never have to look back at the roller issues.

Jay R: No, I do not. I have been using Kiehl's Musk Oil every morning after shower/shaving since 1975. I have continued to search for the original bottles, despite being given the roller ball and other products fro relatives and friends. I truly hope you will continue to produce this product. I continue to be complimented regularly on the clean fresh smell. Thank you. Jan 16, 2013
Reply to Jay Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Patty J: Yes I do, I think the difference is that you can get more out to apply on you from the bottle than you do from the roller.
I do love the bottle better than the roller. I also bought the body wash and the lotion and I get so many compliments about the way I smell when I wear it all together. I am very happy with Kiehl's musk products!

Michele P: I've our purchased the oil, rollerball and spray and on e they dry down they all smell the same... That lovely warm musk that you can only find in Kiehls musk. The lotion is divine too! I use it before the oil and it seems to prolong the scent. Go for it! Jan 16, 2013
Reply to Michele Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Anne F: No I don't. I prefer smell of rollerball applicator. However I do not think rollerball applicator allows enough to be applied. it seems very short-lived. Musk Oil in the bottle is not as sweet smelling as rollarball but stays on longer. Jan 16, 2013

MC M: It's very close, if not the same. It has just been recently made available again after a disasterous - In my opinion - re-formulation as. Roll on product. This is a superior product to the Roll-on. Might not be up to the 70's version in quality and essence but close to the 90's and 00's. All in all, best being offered. Apr 4, 2013

James K: No. And I am not happy about it. Why this "newly commercialized Kiehl's felt it necessary to "improve" upon something that had been proven for so many years in the Lower East side is beyond explanation.
Must be all in the name of making more money.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
nancy s: There is no comparison. Kiehl's is the original and by far the best. I have been using this since it was first introduced and have always recieved compliments. It is not overpowering like othe so called musk fragrences. A small amount goes a long way and lasts for the whole day. Just pure musk with no undertones of other fragrences. You will love it!!!

Andrea A: Musk Essence Oil has more staying power than other musk products. Although I have used Cody Wild Musk Oil and like it, I think that Musk Essence Oil will be pleasing because of its staying power. Additionally, the bottle lasts longer because of the concentration.

Cathy Z: I think it smells similar. Kiehl's is a bit stronger, but I have found that this does not last on my skin. Perhaps it's just my chemistry. It smells strong at first, but fades quickly on me. I still like it though. Dec 30, 2012
Reply to Cathy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Christy W: I am a former user of Cody Wild Musk oil/musk lover. I love Kiehl's musk. It's a lot richer, if that makes sense. It makes the Cody seem like it was watered down. If you like musk a lot, then you will love it. Dec 28, 2012
