    This is an absolute stunner of a musk. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE! Delicate, slightly animalic with soft powder nuance. Blends well with all other musks, my particular favorite is a blend of Exaltolide, Muscenone and L Muscone. Traces can enhance all perfumes. Lucky to have this one available in small amounts.

    Laevo muscone is an essential molecule found in natural deer musk alongside muscenone in nearly equal amounts but from my research I found Laevo Muscone levels to be slightly higher. It’s wonderful to be able to source this specialty molecule from PSH as normally all can one find is the mixture of isomers or the iso form rather than the more expensive Laeveo enantiomer

    I cannot recommend L-Muscone enough. Very few materials are at absolutely another level compared to, say, 99% or more of others, but L-muscone is certainly one of these.

    Sometimes a mixture of isomers, say D,L-linalool, has both isomers smelling about equally good, perhaps somewhat different, and the blend smells about equally good as either isomer. That is not the case with muscone.

    While I haven’t smelled D-muscone, L-muscone is so far superior to the racemic that I have to conclude the D isomer is an actual distomer, something that is actually takes away positive qualities of the smell.

    Pure L-muscone such as offered by PSH absolutely resonates with the person smelling it in a way extremely few things do.

    This, and L-civetone, are the absolute heart and kings of musk (Musk ambrette being also superior but not quite with these.)

    Very few materials would I say you owe it to yourself to have it, even if you might consider it to costly to use in a product, but this absolutely is one of those few.

    Smells like the beer bottle return bin

    This is a musk, so it really doesn’t matter what it smells like on its own. What this does in blends, however, is nothing short of magic: it’s smooth, brilliant, and gives an outstanding presence and volume at a distance of 5′ or so that few other materials provide.

    A silky smooth and elegant musk. Works well in combination with ambrettolide. Easy to work with also. One of my favorites.
