I have a feeling that Ramon Monegal Cherry Musk is one of those perfumes that I could possibly “get” on a late spring day in the future, but for now these are my impressions:
Cherry Musk opens with a delicate fruity musk and sheer strawberry jam. With time I get cherry flavored lip balm and a delicate rose that is as delicate as rosewater. And then it becomes strawberry Twizzlers with rose. And then it dries down to a rosy fruity musk. Lots of fruity white musk.
I have to give Cherry Musk props for not being one of those suffocating cherry-amber or cherry-vanilla blends (like Parfume de Vanille Cherry Musk or Délices de Cartier. This is a cherry without the sugar. It’s sheer and well blended. Yet, it’s something I still don’t see myself wearing.
Notes listed include musk, cherry, strawberry, oakmoss and tea rose. PERFUMER – Ramon Monegal
Give Cherry Musk a try if you are looking for a fruity fragrance or if you like perfumes like Juliette Has a Gun Miss Charming, The Body Shop Strawberry EDT, Pacifica Blood Orange EDT and/or Alice and Peter Cheery Cherry EDP. It’s difficult for me to not think of this as a perfume for young girls, but the Internet has told me that this is not the case. Grown-up women that are old enough to buy Chardonnay without getting carded seem to like it as well. And you know, it is a fun fragrance and most of us need more fun in our lives.
Cherry Musk has below average projection and average longevity.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $185 at Luckyscent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Strawberry Twizzlers rose. Not a bad fragrance, but I am so not the target audience for this fragrance. I think it’s a good choice for a very spoiled 11 year old. Or for a woman that wants to smell like the spoiled 11 year old girl that she never was 🙂
BTW – My favorite cherry for grown-ups is CdG PLAY Red. Now that is an interesting, not sweet cherry. But, it isn’t as “delicate”. Red is warm while Cherry Musk is cool.
