Library of Fragrance Musk #7: The Perfect Ingredient

lofmuskno7

Musk is a scent that should, in my opinion, be in every scent wardrobe.  However, out on the High Street, it’s not that easy to find a straight forward musk that hasn’t been tampered with.  I like to wear musk alone or, more often, layered with other scents and Library of Fragrance Musk #7 is perfect for this.

On the Demeter website the description of #7 reads :

Bergamot and lemon peel, with fresh herbs, amber and patchouli form the attitude of this fragrance, the first of our Musk’s to be declared commercial grade. White Musk # 7 is A fresh and delicate blend that speaks in whispers.

I definitely picked up on the bergamot in the opening and  a little heat from whispery amber in the base, but otherwise this is a straightforward, uncomplicated classic musk.

It’s a gentle almost single note musk that adds warmth and depth to the other fragrances in the line and goes especially well with Library of Fragrance cabochardPatchouli.  I also love Musk over anything with roses in, so I often layer Library of Fragrance Musk over The Body Shop Mountain Atlas Rose oil and also over any heavy hitters to tone it down a bit for day wear. (Very good over Gres Cabochard!).

Library of Fragrance Musk #7 is a white musk that is ideal for daywear, passes the commuter test and lasts around five hours.  I recommend it alone or as an extra spoke in your wheel.  A musk base can add a new dimension to your existing scents and give you a different way of wearing them

Library of Fragrance Musk #7 is £15 a bottle or £25 for two from Boots.  In the USA and Canada, this is called Demeter Musk #7 . You can buy it on Amazon.com.
