Why did you choose this?
Kiehl's Since 1851 Store
I love this oil and have been wearing it since 97. This is why I went to the store. It was my birthday recently and this was going to be my gift to myself. And now it is.

How is this scent made? Does it use animal products? Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 8, 2014
Best Answer: I have no idea how it's made. I do not know if animal products are used.
The ingredients are listed on the box that the bottle comes in.
I have used and enjoyed this product for 50 years.
This is like no other musk product that I am aware of.

Is this the same essence oil as the musk essence oil that comes without the roller ball applicator (I assume the essence oil is a refill for the roller ball applicator?). Also, is there any alcohol in the musk essence oil?

Musk Essence Oil with Roller Ball Applicator
Best Answer: NO!! If you are a fan of the original oil in the bottle DO NOT - I repeat - DO NOT - go with the roll on. They are not the same formula, probably an adaptation of the formula to accommodate the roll on applicator, and the applicator tends to get "gooped up". You can not refill the roll on. I don't believe there is any alcohol in the oil, have never had a problem with it - 35 years and counting.

Will you ever bring back the essential oils? I used to love Carnation.
What about Exquisite Rain? That is my favorite and I have about 4 drops of it left.
I know fragrance styles have changed since the 60's, but we Persons of a Certain Age have more money now.
A shopper on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer: Musk Oil is the only oil I still enjoy but I too wish you would bring back some of the oils from the past which woul be a win win for Kiel's and I.??

can men use this fragrance without it being too "girly" smelling?
Michael W on Aug 20, 2013
Best Answer: Musk is unique in that it is affected by yor individual body chemistry. Men can wear this as well as women. I usually interperet "Girly" as being floral, and Musk is not that for sure.
Try it, I think you will get positive feedback, especially for the great "clean" smell.

How to use oil as a home fragrance?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
Best Answer: Never thought to try. That said, Musk oil rarely has a scent right out of the bottle but does when contacting your skin so think it might not work. Would be delicious though

Someone suggested the Musk Oil in the roller ball bottle is not the same as the one in the regular bottle -- true?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
Best Answer: The oil is the same but I just don't like the roller ball. Thank goodness they brought back the regular bottle! The regular bottle is a much better buy for the money and I can get every last drop with a cotton swab when the bottle is "empty".

Do you think that the musk oil in the bottle smells the same as the one with the rollerball applicator?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, I do believe the scent smells the same, it's the same perfumed oil. I wish the rollerball were refillable. I think the spray smells a little different than the oil. It still smells great, just not as lush or something. The only issue I have with the rollerball is that it doesn't seem to deliver much product. In fact, I thought the first one I ever bought was defective! I've come to the realization that it's just not the greatest delivery system, though it is portable, I always keep one in my purse.

In Scent how does this compare to Cody Wild Musk Oil?
Connie P on Dec 27, 2012
Best Answer: There is no comparison. Kiehl's is the original and by far the best. I have been using this since it was first introduced and have always recieved compliments. It is not overpowering like othe so called musk fragrences. A small amount goes a long way and lasts for the whole day. Just pure musk with no undertones of other fragrences. You will love it!!!

does this smell the same as the Eu De Toilette Musk that are being sold at Bloomingdales, Nordstroms,etc.? The .7 oz spray.
A shopper on Dec 31, 2014
Best Answer: Yes. It's the same fragrance, but without the alcohol. Personally, I think the oil is superior as it settles into the skin more nicely. It originally was always an oil until Khiel's got bought up by a conglomerate cosmetic company and they started making some cheaper "mass appeal" versions of things.

Is this oil the original musk of the 70's?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2013
Best Answer: It's very close, if not the same. It has just been recently made available again after a disasterous - In my opinion - re-formulation as. Roll on product. This is a superior product to the Roll-on. Might not be up to the 70's version in quality and essence but close to the 90's and 00's. All in all, best being offered.

How do you apply this? Since there is no applicator or dropper and the opening is rather large what's the best way to apply it? I currently use the EdT and wanted to use this together to boost the smell.
J H on Mar 18, 2016
Best Answer: I will usually do one of two things. If I want just a little I will (with the lid on) tip the bottle over so the oil gets on the inside of the lid, turn it back right side up and open and apply from the lid. There's a little bump in the lid that holds a bit of oil. Otherwise I just take the lid off, put my finger over the top and tip it so oil gets on my finger. Not elegant but it works. I wish they would put an applicator wand in the larger bottles.

Does the Musk Oil have any floral scent at all?
I'm hoping this is just musk oil without any other sent in it like musk oil perfume has.
A shopper on Apr 9, 2015
Best Answer: I have been using Musk Essence Oil daily since 1962. I have never sensed any floral scent in it. No one who has been around me has ever sensed any floral scent in it. People frequently make positive comments on the scent but never suggest that it has a floral component. It has a clean and subtle scent.

Did Kiehl's change the musk oil from the 60's version? When I wore it in the 60's the scent seemed as if it lasted much longer, than the current version. I can hardly smell it after a few hours.
A shopper on Nov 26, 2016
Best Answer: I've used kiehl's musk oil for more than thirty years. I don't notice any difference (other than not being able to get the 2 oz size as I used to) and posed this question to my wife of thirty years who also agrees that my Kiehl's musk oil scent is still the same and her favorite. It's part of me in her opinion.

Did this product get changed when the company was bought ?
Kevin B on May 3, 2016
Best Answer: Hi, Kevin ~ I receive as many compliments now as I did in 1968 when I first purchased Kiehl's Musk Oil. To my knowledge the formula is the same. Since that time they have added a spray cologne. The oil itself is the same subtle, clean, inviting, long-lasting fragrance. Sincerely, Mary D.
