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 I hated the roll-on bottle and am so glad that the original bottle has been reintroduced! My only regret, as I and others previously have noted, is that the oil seems diluted. I have used this product since the 60's. And, for many subsequent years, one small dab on the neck and wrists was all it took to attract attention when I walked into a room. Inevitably others (men and women) would come up to me and ask, "what perfume are you wearing and/or where did you get it?". I rarely get that reaction anymore, as the fragrance evaporates too quickly. Too bad, as I loved getting the compliments and it was a great way to promote the product and Kiehl's!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Original Musk Oil Back Again? i, too, have worn this since the 60s - however, after the new corporation bought it, the essence oils appeared to get severely dilutted. what used to take several dabs for a day long scent that others could also smell, became a disappearing scent within an hour or less. - recent reviews really confuse me. has the original undilutted product been returned? one review sez it works like i remember and the next one relates my recent experience. - i really want the old stuff back, the scent that lasts, people-ask-you-what-you're-wearing lasting. do i have to risk buying another bottle? i have half a bottle now that is worthless...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best sent ever!!! Kiel's musk oil entered my life 26 years ago. I was pregnant and could not stand the smell of perfume! I bought the oil as a gift for my mother -in -law, whom did not like the smell at all (typical mother-in-law) so I took it back from her and started using it. I was stopped everywhere to ask what scent I was wearing. Much to my surprise, I did not have any ill effects wearing Kiehl's during my pregancy. Needless to say, 4 kids later i still slather on the oil, followed by a spritz of the bottled perfume spray. I am so happy Kiehl's entered my life. As a matter of fact...it is know as my "signature scent!" Love it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I heard it's being discontinued! First let me say, this has been my signature scent for nearly 20 years now. I know there are other women and men who have been wearing it even longer than that. The spray version is simply no substitute for the sensuous perfection that the oil is. After having undergone many changes (for the worse) since being bought up by a big company, Khiel's is now rumored to be discontinuing the oil!! It was bad enough when they stopped selling the big bottles, but this is devastating. To take away a signature fragrance is cruel. If you love this product, write to Khiel's and don't let them take it away from us!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My signature fragrance since 1966 I have been using the original musk oil from Kiehl's since I was in high school in 1966. My girlfriends and I would take the train into Grand Central and walk down to the original pharmacy where we would admire what ever display was there. The last one I remember was when they had vintage motorcycles right there in the showroom. But I digress. The product is incredible and everyone says how wonderful I smell. When they introduced the roll-on I was terribly disappointed, and had to hunt to find the original musk. I was told recently that Nordstroms will no longer carry it and I have to order it online. Oh well, small price to pay for an amazing product which I will wear forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used Kiehl's Musk Oil for over 30 years I first encountered the fragrance walking down the street on lower 5th Ave. in Manhattan; a woman walked past me and I could not believe how good she smelled, clean yet enticing. Unlike my usual reticent self, I stopped her and asked what fragrance she was wearing. She answered musk oil, and told me she bought it at Kieh;'s Pharmacy on 3rd. I immediately found the place - it was out of the 1900s, a true apothecary and I was enchanted. My first bottle of Musk Oil cost $25 for a dram ( I believe) or around 1/4 ounce. It lasted me for about a year. I understand why the product they now sell is not as concentrated. Anyway, I have worn this exclusively ever since, so much so that folks just think this is how I smell personally. How wonderful is that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated Scent for Men and Women This is a very sophisticated scent for both men and women. I personally think that the Musk Essence Oil smells a lot better, and more potent, than the aerosol and roller ball version. Put your finger over the top of the bottle, shake it upside down for a second, then put this oil on a few points on your skin. Don't use too much! Tip: This over the spray or roller ball version! From what I've been told, this musk oil was made for a prince's bride and in exchange they gifted the original Kiehl's New York store location with a beautiful chandelier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My signature scent for over 50 years For years my spouse used Kiehl's Rain. It's no longer available. And we miss it. I've used Kiehl's Musk Oil since the early 1960's, every single day. It's my 'trademark'. My coworkers used to know when I had passed by. My neighbors know when I've been in the elevator or passed through the lobby. It's not something I 'wear', it's how I smell. It's a subtle, distinctive, light, 'captivating' and extremely positive and enjoyable fragrance. We've held on through the corporate changes to the fragrance product line. PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT.
