Musk Essence Oil

Kiehl's Signature Scent

Our Original Musk Oil is believed to have been created in the 1920's at the "Kiehl Apothecary." Discovered there in a vat labeled "Love Oil" in the late 50's, Kiehl's signature scent was reintroduced to our patrons in 1963.

can men use this fragrance without it being too "girly" smelling?
Michael W on Aug 20, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

Do you think that the musk oil in the bottle smells the same as the one with the rollerball applicator?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2013
Best Answer: 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". :)

Is this oil the original musk of the 70's?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

In Scent how does this compare to Cody Wild Musk Oil?
Connie P on Dec 27, 2012
Best Answer: 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!!!

How is this scent made? Does it use animal products? Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 8, 2014
Best Answer: I have no idea how it's made. I do not know if animal products are used.
The ingredients are listed on the box that the bottle comes in.
I have used and enjoyed this product for 50 years.
This is like no other musk product that I am aware of.
