Musc Encensé, the name is not just a play on the French encens (incense) and insensé (crazy). Encenser means both to scent with incense and to praise to the skies. And Musc Encensé does exactly what it says on the bottle. Suede-smooth, slightly feral, subtly sexy, perfumer Ralf Schwieger's tribute to Tonkin musk takes on AEDES DE VENUSTAS' signature incense in a bold blend of the mystic and the animal.
To couple smoke and flesh, the perfumer adds an ambery accord that runs through the fragrance. Clary sage shoots aromatic accents through the top notes. The skin, sand and driftwood facets of cashmeran fuses the cool, mineral scent of incense with the animalic warmth of musk. A lick of tonka clouds the blend with almond-milk creaminess...
A yin yang balance of extremes, Musc Encensé will feel madly musky one day, insanely incensy the next. And smell divine, anytime.
