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 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 1 out of 5 by from Definitely not the same original musk oil I loved since the 1970s. Please bring back the real Kiehl’s musk oil you sold at the NYC apothecary. It was the best!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Musk Oil Not the Same! I am so disappointed. I had my old bottle of musk oil for years now. I stopped wearing perfume when I got pregnant and then just forgot about it as a stay at home mom. My son is now six and during quarantine, I started to do little things for myself so I put on some of the musk oil. It didn't have much left in the bottle so I ordered a new bottle to treat myself. I put it on as soon as I got it. Typically I only needed the tiniest bit but I found myself having to reapply it to get any scent at all. Upon further investigation, when I turned the bottle upside down (with the cap on), it seemed very liquidy. Around 1995-2010...the oil was so thick it looked like molasses. I don't know if the change came due to Loreal buying out Kiehls, but I am so sad to see that the original musk oil has been changed. I may try to return it but more than anything I'm so upset my favorite oil is gone and now have to find a new fragrance. I still enjoy other Kiehls products like face creams.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Responding to customers and concerns directly Clearly the musk is different considering all the feedback you have had. I think that Kiehl's reply is even worse. Here's Kiehl's opportunity to come clean and address the issues. All Kiehl's keeps doing here is sending the same canned response over and over. I agree they should be honest. Obviously something isn't the same. Maybe they changed suppliers. Why don't you have someone analyze it. You all come off as chemistry majors when we walk through the door.
