Did you know that about half of the population cannot detect the smell of musk?
Most commonly used material in perfumery, musk can be found in most fragrances, from perfumes to shampoos to laundry detergents as it is used to create depth and is an excellent fixative (enables fragrance to last longer). Although originally extracted from the musk deer, the practice has been heavily restricted and the musks used in perfumery are man-made, cruelty-free alternatives. White musks can have a range of smells, some smell comforting, fluffy & clean like laundry or washed hair while others smell animalic and sensual. There are even musks that smell fruity too!
