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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using Kiehls musk oil since 1972. I purchased it from the original store on 3rd ave. I lived on 10th st between 2nd and 3rd I went in one day to try things out. The oil was I hit w friends who would live the aroma emanating off me. It’s magical and nothing else comes close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Musk oil One started and everybody just followed. That’s what I think it’s happening here with all that bad reviews. This product smells wonderful and I will continue purchasing over and over again!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from L'Oreal, stop calling it 'Kiehls ORIGINAL Musk' It's obvious L'Oreal re-engineered Musk after the acquisition in 2000 which explains the minimized power this beloved fragrance once had. Consistently telling the public there has been no change to the original formula is an insult to people like me who have been wearing it for 20+ years, and know better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fragrance! I was born in the 50s so this is not the "original" musk I used as a teenager in the 70s but I still enjoy the fragrance!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scent! I love this musk oil. I have worn musk oil for 40 years. It is a scent for men & women. I got it for my son & he loves it!
