Musk Botanical Melange/ Smoky, Animalic, Ambery, Musky, Spicy / $100 oz natural blend
The most distinguished bazaars of Tunis are the spice, perfume, and jewel bazaars. In the first of these sit the Moors, pale, but handsome, in narrow window-seats surrounded by perfume bottles, boxes, ostrich eggs, bags with musk, bowls with dyes, wax-candles, and so on. The space is so limited that the seller can neither sit straight nor turn round. .So he sits in his picturesque costume all day long, without calling to customers or inducing them in any other way to buy. If he sells nothing for weeks he does not complain. The customer is sent by Providence, and as a firm believer in fatalism, he thinks there is no necessity to assist it.
Tunis: the land and the people
By Ernst von Hesse-Wartegg
The term "musk" refer to a perfume created by perfumers according to their interpretation of what animal derived musk might smell like. Various terms have been ascribed to it including-sweet, ambery, musky, animalic, sweet, spicy, precious woods, smoky, and powdery but what the balance and proportion of those components are is left to the perfumers creative imagination.
The beauty of musk as a perfume ingredient and fixative is that the base-note centric essence is a fine medium to harmonize the individual components of a wide range of perfume categories while yet adding its own distinctive, radiant influence.
