Musks are a very specific raw material category, incredibly versatile, which balances perfumes and helps keep a fragrance on the skin

"Traditional musk is an animal by-product from a specific species deer secretion. This animal is happily now protected, and perfumers have created a hundred of safe and high end raw materials to replace it in fragrances. Most of them don't have any longer a lot in common with the ""original"" musk . Musky notes convey a clean yet sensuous second skin feeling in a fragrance. Creed's best sellers Aventus and Silver Mountain Water, and Narcisso Rodriguez for her, are good examples of fragrances in which musks are key."
