About this deal

Contrary to what some believe "real" musk hasn't been used in most mainstream fragrance for almost 100 years! This is the only frag that's not smells like perfume on me,it smells very soft,comforting,pleasant,not over powering or giving headache,it stays close to my skin, heavenly! But after an hour or so it started to lose the hairspray quality, and moved on to be softer and sweeter.

Now deemed a classic, the success of the Musk brand is reflected in the extensive range still available today. He saw himself as an artist of the modern age, designing bottles and packaging with abandon, through which he discovered his passion for perfume. i remember liking jovan musk as a preteen and hoping this might be similar, but jovan was stronger and muskier. I live in a hot climate so I like fresh scents in the morning and even at bed time, but sometimes the fresh scents can be chilling, so this is like an inoffensive and slightly elevated musk/baby powder type scent that could still be cozy yet non-descript.I used to adore this and now that I've finally got it (edt), it's not at all what I remembered it as - I must have overrated it. Back in high school (‘90s) you would use this to feel clean and make yourself perceived as clean from the people around you. However the AA musk perfume oil is quite strong for a musk oil (unless i have overloaded my nostrils with too many fragrances) and has a floral soapiness about it without being harsh yet a pleasantly clean scent. I understand why some people would think this leans feminine, but unless wearing fresh laundered clothes isn't something men do, I can't see how this isn't unisex. Musk by Alyssa Ashley is an iconic unisex fragrance from 1969, created in full youth and sexual revolution.

Although the formulation has changed a bit since the original in the late sixties, there is still some of it's 1960's character remaining. Although they closely resemble the true scent of real deer (Tonkin) musk, half the human population are anosmic to it. it's needless to say, that people tend to underestimate becoming nose blind after a few hours, even more, when it's as inoffensive as that one. The musk is there and lasts a very long time, it is warm and almost wants to get funky but does not. i have no memories of this, i have never before smelled it in my earlier years nor i know someone who used it, i do not think it was sold in any form in the country i come from, so i do not have any associatiations.The edc was like an awfully cheap hairspray - and i wonder where the low ratings are concerned, depend on the version tested. While there is nothing too impressive about it, it can be a great option for someone who needs to have a little bit "sterile" professional presence and while it won't sweep anyone off their feet, it will lift your mood and make you feel fresh and clean. It is an essence with clear American connotations, his birthplace, and in those years was an innovation in the world of perfumery, for its high notes from musk directed to a unisex audience.

I love the way perfumes are able to bring back memories you didn't even know you had: I smelled the tester for Musk by Alyssa Ashley and immediately felt like I was 5 years old again, in my gymnastics class (my teacher must have worn this because I thought of her)!Alyssa Ashley Musk is a unisex fragrance and this peculiarity is emphasized on the contemporary packaging in two colors: black symbolizes the masculine aspect and white the feminine, they are united by a thin gold line and easily recognizable by the distinctive genre of Alyssa Ashley symbols. Extract, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette and Cologne Spray, what is the difference between these and which version to choose?

Please note that parcels weighing over 2kg may be sent via courier due to Royal Mail weight restrictions. A rich, oriental blend of over 100 of the world’s finest ingredients, intoxicates the mind, body and soul in this long-loved fragrance that stands the test of time. I never liked this and I still don't, I wrote a negative review before about this smelling like plastic+hairspray+fecal edge. On my sister, this smelled like fizzy/sparkling citrus; on my mom, it smelled like a warm musk; on me, it just smelled like flowers. i recomend to try it for any musk lover and for anyone who likes simple non sweet not strong scents.

It used to be my signature frag when I was younger, it was my secret weapon to smell good and enchant boys. I should admit that Alyssa Ashley Musk (especially Eau de Toilette version) is one of the best musks I encountered on the market. Protect your fragrance from direct sunlight and heat, otherwise it could alter the composition of the fragrance and escape. My only tiny complaint is that the sillage is extraordinarily poor, and my perfume-eating-skin turns this into a skin scent almost instantly.
