Coty Vanilla Musk…Cooked Vanilla Pudding With A Bit Of Burnt Edges…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Coty Vanilla Musk.

Coty Vanilla Musk.

Vanilla Musk is so light and demure, yet powerful on its spices. It’s a gentle vanilla musk to go to bed with, to hold a baby with, an unassuming fragrance that won’t turn heads but will make your skin smell very, very good. It’s a faint musk with strong spices and an over wash of vanilla that hits you immediately on the first spray in a delightful mix that makes you come back for more.
Its’ initial spritz is glorious with a zesty lemon that has one drooling and dreaming of lemon cream pie. It’s absolutely delicious. I can’t get enough of the beginning notes of this cologne spray. No alcohol whizz, just immediate gratification and pleasure from the first spray through to the end. It’s a little stronger than one might think for a cologne spray, and it does radiate well. Lasting power is not that well, two hours at best. Although, for a cologne, that would be decent. Considering some of today’s Eau de Parfums, it holds its own in longevity.
A little bit of burnt logs thrown in for good measure which only adds to this old stand-by of drugstore classics. A creamy, cooked vanilla pudding from scratch comes to mind when I smell my wrist with Vanilla Musk. The type of pudding that’s been left on the stove a little too long and has some burnt crisp edges along the sides of the pot.
A scrumptious winter-time fragrance for those snowy days in front of the fire, watching the snowflakes fall. Coty’s Vanilla Musk was developed and launched in 1994 and has been a popular seller since. It is available in drugstores,  major retailers, online and also through the secondary market for older versions that are considered vintage or before the perfume industry began their stricter rulings on perfumes. Coty Vanilla Musk is a perfect stocking stuffer and is considered a “drugstore classic” for its price.
