All About Musk

What is musk?

Back in the day, musk was created from the glands of the wild Tibetan musk deer. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Today, the musky smell you get from perfumes and candles is entirely ethical and is derived from a combination of synthetic and natural resources like plants. 

How do you describe the smell of musk?

While many assume musk must smell like a rich leather, this isn’t the case. Today, synthetic musks are somewhat opposite, bringing in mellow undertones and floral fragrances.

Is musk an attractive smell?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, musk is a scent that can make you seem more attractive. The actual scent comes from the anal glands of animals, but the primal scent can make you more seductive because it conjures up thoughts of sex.
