Musk Essence Oil is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This smell has changed. I spend about $2000-3,000 a year on Kiehls between myself and my lady. (unfortunately just became a rewards member) . I recently bought this in March and immediately noticed something was OFF. I even compared the scent to the same musk or what appeared to be the same musk from Kiehls 6 months or so ago and it smelled not as strong and even slight pungent. I then asked my lady to smell, same concencious. I’m no fool.. not that degrees matter but I am an MBA and Financial Advisor studying for my J.D, and also is my lady. I don’t want excuses, I just want this fixed, please. Whatever you guys changed, please revert back to the original formula. In fact, please call me. This is pretty serious. I loved this stuff.. and now.. it’s not the same. Please respond and get in touch with me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the Original Regardless of what responses say, all your customers can't have gone smell-blind all at once. There are too many people who claim the scent has changed from the original to keep telling them it hasn't. I am another one who knows the smell is not a little different, but very different. It went from being thick and musky to floral,soapy, and almost unfit for a man's cologne. I still have a bottle of what I thought was Musk Oil I bought at the NYC flagship on 3rd Ave a decade or more ago, and it smells nothing like the new bottle I received today. Maybe it wasn't the "Original Musk" that I bought way back then. I can't tell because the bottle is only marked with the Kiehl's name, address, and 7C041X. Please help us out. Either by releasing that scent again or at least confirming that we are not crazy and something has changed. Otherwise, we will all either continue to buy this product thinking it's what we want and be disappointed or reject Kiehl's altogether because you keep telling us we're mistaken about the formulation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wheres the MUSK GONE TO? I am 68 years old, and l have been wearing your original musk since l was in my 20's. IN THE LAST 2 (TWO) YEARS EVERY TIME I GET IT THE SMELL WAS EXTREMELY WEAK, IF IT SMELLS AT ALL! ITS ALL OIL. YOU HAVE TO DUMP THE WHOLE BOTTLE ON TO GET ANY SMELL. AT ALL! THIS WAS A DEVINE SMELL.! A LITTLE DAB WAS ALL YOU NEEDED AND PEOPLE WOULD ASK ME : " WHAT IS THAT, WHERE CAN I GET IT, YOU SMELL GREAT! THEN I WOULD REFER THEM TO YOUR STORE OR WEB. NOT ANYMORE THERES NO SMELL. WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE FORMULA??? IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT!!!! LOOKING AT JOE MALONE. SCENT IF YOU DON'T FIX THIS! AND I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL CUSTOMER!! FIX THIS

Rated 2 out of 5 by from *****Doesn't smell the same as "Original" Formula***** SO... much to my excitement, I got an email notification from Kiehl's on 1/31/19 that this was back in stock! I figured Kiehl's had finally read all the pleas to bring back their best selling oil(although Cucumber was my most favorite). I immediately went online & ordered it. I just got it today, opened it up and my first thought was it smelled a little off and the oil somehow didn't even feel as thick as it usually is. I put it on my wrists and rubbed them together and it almost evaporated for lack of a better description. For the past few years, I have been stockpiling my Musk Oil & purchasing it on eBay when I can find. I still have one of my original bottles I purchased in the NYC Kiehl's store 7 years ago. ALL the bottles(4) I have smell the EXACT same. This bottle I received definitely smells different. More like heavy powder and "old Lady-ish". NOT the good clean quality Musk I'm used to from Kiehls. I did another test today with my original Musk on one wrist and this new one on the other wrist. Absolutely not the same. What a let-down... I can't even express how disappointed I am. Also interesting is that this is now out of stock again? (although the roller ball is still in stock as of 2/4/19) If Kiehl's is "testing" a new formula, I think they're going lose a lot of people who were loyal to this fragrance. I used to live around the corner from the original apothecary on the lower east side on 3rd Ave in NYC and became a Kiehl's junkie back in the late 90's- it really bums me out to write this review. Just my honest opinion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring this back!!! Please, please, please, bring Original Musk oil back. I have worn this scent over 20 years and I don’t feel like I’m me without it. Only the original musk oil will do...not the lotion, not the perfume spray, not the rollerball...this product clearly has a loyal following. Keihl’s do the right thing, listen to your loyal customers. Bring back the original musk oil!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN WE GET THIS BACK in STOCK? I am a LOYAL Musk Oil consumer and I have purchased thousands of dollars of this product. This is my only scent I use and I don't like the cologne spray. This is my signature scent and I buy in bulk. When will this be back in STOCK. Please let us die hard fans know. THANKS.

I am a huge fan of Egyptian Musk. And have tried so many versions of it. Is this supposed to be Kielhls version of it?

I have literally tried dozens upon dozens of versions of this unique fragrance. It’s become a hobby of mine and an obsession. Some how my search has lead me here. I really hope someone has the answer and can help me. Thank you. Mike

I am looking for a 1960's type scent, pure musk essence oil spray or cologne for my husband, not a roller applicator; where is this product on your website? Can you advice me please?
