Review: Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori

Parfumerie Generale's Musc Maori is a truly luscious scent, but only suitable for the gourmand lover. Its dominant note is milk chocolate. A creamy, cocoa-rich pot of it. You can smell it clearly in the top notes and just as distinctly in the drydown, with no evolution in that particular note. What changes is its accoutrements. The top notes feature a sweet, milky citrus that I smell as lemon but others have noted seems more like orange to their noses. It brightens and lifts and cuts the candy element a bit. As the scent dries down, it warms a bit with a touch of tonka and a slight hint of wood notes. It is remarkably tenacious. I spritz once and it lasts a good 24 hours. It even clings to the skin after a shower. $125 for 50 ml, and highly recommended.
