How To Apply

WARNINGS: Our essences are generally recommended for everyone. Please note the following with regard to the usage of pure essences and essence blends and their possible effects on the skin: the susceptibility of persons to pure essences and essence blends varies from individual to individual. Occasionally, susceptible individuals can experience a rash, desensitization or a temporary discoloration of the skin in the areas where the pure concentrated essences have been applied. Sun exposure greatly increases the sensitivity of the skin towards certain essences; therefore, we recommend that the use of essences should be limited to those occasions when sun exposure is minimal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful aroma Yes the oil has a wonderful aroma but the amount of content is over priced. I can get other oil products which contain more product with similar aroma & potency for either a bit less cost or about the same as this small bottle. I recommend it for the aroma, not for the content amount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this musk spray I read the reviews. Was on the hunt for a musk perfume/toilette with lasting strength & medium trail…found it! Not fond of the woodsy sandalwood musks & when I first applied on freshly showered skin, that’s what I smelled & was instantly put-off. But as time wore on it started to calm down & by days end I was smelling that delicious musk that I love. I smelled it on me the next day & is still lingering on my clothes. For me, this musk scent is perfect musk (not too masculine) the scent softens to a warm musk & ppl around tell I smell great! Really fun to mix with light floral scents. Play around, try your perfect recipe. Regardless, this smells great by itself or mixed with florals, flowers & friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back the original oils! A shame you have disconituned the oils (especially cucumber which I wore for years) and now the musk has been diluted and is not the same. Do we need multiple beard products but not the fragrances that Kiehls was known for?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same Musk Oil I purchased a few years ago. Does not smell the same as the bottle of your Musk Oil that I purchased about 3 years ago. This one smells like flowers and nothing like the oil in the older bottle that I still have. Wasted my money and very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Musk Oil I’ve been wearing Kiel’s musk since 1972 and I have to say this is a new formula. Though it smells ok, it definitely is NOT the original Kiel’s musk scent. All long-time customers know this. Our noses do not lie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the original but still a pleasant fragrance. This is definitely not the original musk oil as claimed by Kiehl's but it is still a pleasant smell. It does not last long. The change in fragrance is a huge disappointment. (As for the reviewer who says bad reviews are "piling on" please note that I have an independent opinion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s nice, but would be perfect with one addition Smells great, but I wish the bottle had an eyedropper-type dispenser. It looks like the underside of the lid could accommodate one. It would make the oil easier to apply and control the amount applied.
