Heya Posse Peeps, Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies in the Montale house today and looking at another of their samples that I bought in the Weekly Chance Special at Surrender To Chance not very long ago. I do love to check them every week because sometimes the bargains are AH MAY ZING! Dew Musk was a real bargain at the time at 99cents!!
I don’t know what is is lately with discontinued fragrances but here is another one on the way out. How can they be not selling this wonderful baby? I bet the name has killed it, There is nothing DEW-y about this growling tiger.
Dew Musk by Montale
Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Orange blossom, ylang-ylang, pomegranate, patchouli, musk
Straight up I get a furry, dirty, sensual back of head after a boozy night and wild sex that was so energetic and entertaining that your partner was too fulfilled to move afterwards and fell asleep after a moment of mutual self congratulation smell. He he he!! Sadly that only lasts about 5 minutes before we hit seriously beautiful floral harmonies, they are like a chorus of pre-teen boys voices floating over the tops of darkness and heavy music, ylang-ylang is star and the other notes bit players, and this is just dabbed from the sample, when sprayed it blooms 100% more lavishly. Dew Musk is a very real reminiscence of perfumes from days gone by. The furry, indolic, muskiness wrapped around ylang and orange blossom through the heart is quite magical, I can’t believe that such a retro fragrance has come from the house of Montale. Seriously, Dew Musk is so good.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading today, there’s always something fun and interesting going on at the Perfume Posse, also over at Australian Perfume Junkies so drop over there and say howdy too. In fact we have a 200,000 VIEW GIVEAWAY going on so scoot over and get involved.
I have found a few Montales that aren’t fitting my original perception of the brand. Do you have a fave from the line? Or better still which MUSK perfumes ring your bells?
