Parfums d'Empire Musc Tonkin

Review of the EdP

I was initially intrigued by a fragrance so daring as to be named after one of the most sought-after ingredients in all of perfumery--tonqin musk--from the Tibetan Musk Deer. The opening was a brief citric blast followed by a persistent somewhat clean musk with a tinge of Scotch tape. I get the "wet dog" note they were going for, but this fragrance falls short of my expectation of natural musk. There is little to no development throughout the course of the fragrance. I'd stick with Musc Koublai Khan.
