L’Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc

This is Mûre et Musc EdT by L’Artisan Parfumeur. It was first released in 1978, the nose is Jean Laporte. Despite being a niche scent this was and is insanely popular. You’ve probably smelled it before, even if you didn’t know it. I know that when I tried it first in a sample I immediately recognized it, even though I had never consciously smelled Mure et Musc before.

What does it smell like? It’s kind of hard to describe, though. It certainly doesn’t smell like something from the end of the seventies/early eighties, at least to me (my pefume knowledge gets a bit spotty pre-nineties). It gives the promised musc, in a clean way, not too cozy. I think modern musc concoctions tend to pair it with stuff like cashmeran etc to make it clean and cozy. This one here is more laundry detergent, but in a very good way.

Nowadays when a scent promises berries, you know you get that horribly sweet stuff. The berry portion of Mure et Musc though smells a lot more real. Not candy but the actual fruit, fresh from the woods. Because of this I would hesitate to call it a fruity scent, as nowadays you’d expect something different. I really like it though.

I think there’s also a bit of lavender in it, but my nose may deceive me here. Overall, everything gets overpowered by the musc. Luckily it’s a good musc, but you have to be in the mood for it.

Try if: you want to smell like eating blackberries after folding laundry
