Review: Il Profumo Musc Bleu Parfum
If ever a clean musk could be called "intense", Il Profumo Musc Bleu is it. This is soap and florals and musk on steroids, in parfum strength. Typically, one of the issues with fragrances in this genre is longevity. Not true with Musc Bleu - it lasts all day. The cyclamen is very, very strong in the top notes and a kick of soapy geranium follows close behind. It gentles somewhat as it dries down but never loses that concentrated clean feeling. Most US retailers charge more than $100 for the 50 ml bottle I have and I find that ridiculous. You can order directly from Il Profumo in Italy for half that or less, depending on the exchange rate. You do wait a bit longer for shipping, but that was a price I was more than willing to pay for those savings. I was thrilled when I got the package, too - Il Profumo is super generous with samples.
