The combination of musk and floral notes in a perfume is one rarely well-executed. Too often, a scent would veer too musky, or far too flowery, robbing the scent profile of any sensuality and turning it plain sickly. When done right, however, it forms a delicate and seductive fragrance that is epitomised by Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her Fleur Musc.
The perfume is a subtle blend of roses and peonies, underscored by notes of pink peppercorns. The musk, patchouli and warming amber notes round off the fragrance, giving it a heady body that lingers. The spiciness is what elevates it from your standard, florid springtime perfume, giving it a depth that exemplifies what the Fleur Musc stands for: Bold, passionate femininity.
As the latest scent in the fashion label’s For Her series, the Fleur Musc sets itself apart from its predecessors on two fronts — balance and wearability. The pioneering For Her perfume was heavy on musk and amber, creating a provocative scent cocktail best flaunted at a nighttime party.
The Fleur Musc is more of an everyday scent for daytime wear, allowing you to get the most use out of your fragrance investment. Catch us anywhere about town, and you can be certain the Fleur Musc is the spring scent we’ll be flaunting.
For Her Fleur Musc is priced $107 (30ml), $162 (50 ml) and $204 (100ml). The perfume will be available at major departmental stores, Sephora and Sasa.
