I absolutely love musk, and at last Pierre Guillaume, one of my favorite noses, has decided to grace us with his contribution to the white musk genre.
Le Musc La Peau is naughty and nice. It's a sweet crystal musk with an animalic side that peeks out from time to time, if you look for it. The perfume is a bit floral (I thought violets for a moment) and quite soapy in the base. There is a vague impression of rosemary that I quite like. It gives the perfume a subtle woodiness, a bit like men's cologne.
The pop of masculinity in a crystal musk is just my style. I find it sexy, much in the way that D&G's original "red cap" pour femme has that bit of basil that adds just the right touch of testosterone. Le Musc La Peau is white hot.
