Vanilla Musk (along with Vanilla Fields) was a very nostalgic holiday scent to me (Coty 1994). It used to remind me of the distant past and the Bing Crosby songs we listened to during Christmas.
It is a sweet, buttery vanilla. Vanilla Musk is an effusive scent – a bit like what Bath and Body Works (among others) intended their warm vanilla fragrances to smell like. And what it lacks in complexity it makes up for in warmth and tenderness. With the perfect mix of cedar and sandalwood it’s burnt sugar vanilla. And the musk is very bright and embracing.
Notes: vanilla, musk, cedar and sandalwood.
