A meeting of two myths. The most spiritual scent in perfumery, matched with the most sensual. With this ninth offering, Aedes de Venustas infuses its signature incense note with a modern take on the long-lost Tonkin musk, the most sensual of accords.
Musc Encensé, the name is not just a play on the French encens (incense) and insensé (crazy). Encenser means both to scent with incense and to praise to the skies. And Musc Encensé does exactly what it says on the bottle. Suede-smooth, slightly feral and subtly sexy, perfumer Ralf Schwieger’s tribute to Tonkin musk takes on the brand’s signature incense in a bold blend of the mystic and the animal.
To couple smoke and flesh, the perfumer adds an ambery accord that runs through the fragrance. Clary sage shoots aromatic accents through the top notes. The skin, sand and driftwood facets of cashmeran fuses the cool, mineral scent of incense with the animalic warmth of musk. A lick of tonka clouds the blend with almond-milk creaminess…
A yin yang balance of extremes, Musc Encensé will feel madly musky one day, insanely incense-y the next. And smell divine, anytime.
