Sonoma Scent Studio Sienna Musk is a spicy, woodsy musk that doesn’t have any of the heaviness associated with spicy, woodsy, musky fragrances. Sienna Musk is soft, warm and furry, reminding me of darling little kitties basking in window sunlight.
Sienna Musk opens as this soft “furry” musk with this amazing sandalwood. This sandalwood smells luxurious and high-quality. The top has a bit of fizzy ginger ale that tickles the nose. It fizzles fairly quickly. Then Sienna Musk has warmth from spices and dry red cedar over this perfect sandalwood-musk. The overall effect is a soft, dry woodsy musk that is effortless to wear.
Sienna Musk is a SOFT scent (on me). It wears very closely to the skin, so much so that I often think it is my skin. Projection is below average with this scent. But, I’m not “deducting points” because of this. The scent also doesn’t last very long on my skin but there is that possibility that I can no longer “smell” it because I do get compliments on this fragrance long after I stopped noticing it. It really does become my skin.
Notes listed include musk, sandalwood, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, clove, mandarin, cedar and cypress. PERFUMER – Laurie Erickson
Give Sienna Musk a try if you like sandalwood scents of sheer dry, spicy scents or perfumes like Jo Malone Nutmeg & Ginger, 10 Corso Como, Diptyque Tam Dao, Etro Sandalo, and/or Penhaligon’s Malabah. Sienna Musk is a unisex scent. I highly recommend it for any fan of musky scents. This one isn’t too spicy, isn’t too sweet and isn’t too animalic. It’s just right.
Many sizes of Sienna Musk are available. The 34 ml spray retails for $60 and is available at Sonoma Scent Studio.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A dry, spicy, woodsy musk that is soft and furry. I see myself adding a full-size bottle to my collection. That’s how much I like it.
