Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same This was my favorite perfume. I always got so many complements now I never even smell the scent while applying. I used to put on a sweater I haven’t worn in awhile and enjoy how it smelled. That never happens now that Keils changed there formulation. No more and i will miss the scent I knew

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous animalic musk. Just received my new bottle of Kiehl's Original Musk Oil. It smells identical to the same product I purchased 12 years ago, so I am mystified by those who say the smell has changed. Kiehl's is famously one of the more "animalic" solinote musks on the market, which is to say it has a delicate, quasi-sebaceous fetor to it that serious musk lovers prize. It is not perfumey, floral, headshop-py or "laundry-clean" in character, but rather a close analogue to real deermusk (now legally banned and rarely used in fine perfumery). The oil has a pleasantly thick viscosity to it, and a little goes a long way; very little sillage, but extremely tenacious substantivity. Wear it solo for its cozy, reassuring muskiness, or apply it as an under-layer to your favorite fine perfume, for added animalic richness. This is gorgeous stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For all those wondering There WAS an ingredient change. This is because the 'real musk' was outlawed by the US years ago (I believe it's deer musk, you have to spend a few hours on the internet to find these details). So the ingredient is now a synthetic musk, which is not the same, but the support people monitoring this review board are just posting a canned reply anyway. The worse news is that that ingredient was banned for all musks and musk oils, not just this one, so you can't get authentic musk anywhere at this point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Smell The Same I have been using this oil since the 70s . I use other fragrances but always go back to purchasing this, I love the musk body lotion and this combined. I just purchased both over the weekend and returned the oil. This does not smell the same. I thought maybe my body chemistry changed but after reading these reviews I think not. I did purchase the roller-ball want to see if this still has the incredible and to me intoxicating scent I remember from so long ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STILL THE ORIGINAL SCENT TO ME! I don't understand how these critics are saying the scent has changed. I have been using Kiehl's Musk for at least 25 years, or more, and have not noticed any change in the way it smells. As a matter of fact, my grandson said, just the other day, "I love the oil you wear, and every time I smell anything similar, I say, "That smells just like my Nana!" I will never stop using your Musk - I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must Concur I have been a Kiehl's customer since 1972 and the reviews about the change in musk oil are correct. Unfortunately. I imagine the original product(s) needed have become too costly or hard to mass produce, but if I could purchase a special order of the REAL Original Musk oil I would pay the additional charge. Please advise. Thank you

How to apply the oil?

Other oils I own have come with a dropper or plastic shield, this is just an open bottle of oil. What is the best way to apply it without spilling or using too much?
Asked by: Jakes
Hi there! Thanks for your interest in our Musk Essence Oil. We recommend applying this oil directly to the skin for best results. Let us know if you have any other questions!
