Over The Musk By Mugler: A Warm and Sensual Fragrance
May 30, 2014
Although I like collecting shoes, when it comes to fragrances, I tend to be a very loyal gal.
I am not the type of woman who collects pretty perfume bottles on her dresser and who is always dreaming about expanding her perfume wardrobe. I much more prefer having a signature scent for the day and another one for the evening.
Now it looks as though a new fragrance is about to compete against Chanel Noirfor my evening attention. And this last contender is Over the Musk by Mugler.
This captivating scent is part of Les Exceptions, a brilliant new collection of five audacious fragrances recently launched by the House of Mugler. It also includes Chyprissime, Fougère Furieuse, Supra Floral and Oriental Express, all presented in a chic Art Deco-inspired bottle.
Created by Olivier Polge (the son of Jacques Polge, creator of Chanel Noir) and Jean-Christophe Hérault, this luxurious unisex line was developed by reinterpreting the great blends of traditional fine perfumery and giving them another life with unexpected ingredients. In the case of Over the Musk, the two "nez" had the idea of combining artificial musk (as musk deer is prohibited since 1979) with ambrette seeds to achieve a sultry and sophisticated scent.
And what a tantalising juice it is.
There is something quite mystical and addictive about this woodsy and sweet fragrance. Perhaps is it the sensual and animalistic side of the musk, which creates a warm and enthralling scent.
Mugler Les Exceptions are available at The Bay (downtown Montreal, downtown Vancouver, Toronto Queen & Yorkdale) at $185 for 80ml and $127 to refill a bottle.
