Musc Tonkin Extrait de Parfum
This elixir reinvents in a novel, contemporary style, the most suave note in perfumery, worshiped for millennia: Tonkin musk.
Why we're addicted: The scent of heated flesh, solar, feline, subtly leathery. A powerful, addictive, erotic aura...
Musc, Flesh, Leather, Animalic.
This aphrodisiac potion changes on each skin, the better to enhance it. A lick of salt for the taste of skin. A heady floral whiff to remind us that perfume links our bodies to the erotic spells of nature. A liquorous, mulled-fruit burn contrasting with a light, shimmering veil of powder, unctuous as honey, melting and waxy as the finest leather, the scent conjures living flesh heated by pleasure but also its mossy ink-black depths.
The Chinese have prized it since Antiquity for its aphrodisiac virtues. Its smell was considered so heavenly by Islam it was blended into the mortar of some mosques so that they would exhale it in the sun. It was so penetrating that ships loaded with tea would refuse to carry it for fear it would impregnate their cargo. Tonkin musk, produced by a species of Himalayan deer, was one of the most precious ingredients of the perfumers palette; it suffused their blends with a sensual aura that fixed and magnified every other essence.
