Kiehl's Original Musk Perfume

Kiehl's Original Musk - eau de toilette for women

Musk by Kiehl's - "This modern version of our classic signature scent is based on the unique blend that is Kiehl's Musk. Our special Musk "recipe" begins with an initial creamy, fresh citrus burst of Bergamot Nectar and Orange Blossom, followed by a soft floral bouquet of Rose, Lily, Ylang-Ylang and Neroli. Finally, Original Musk Eau de Toilette dries down to a warm, sensual Oriental finish of Tonka Nut, White Patchouli and, of course, Musk, the soul of this distinctively modern scent."

Kiehl's Original Musk Blend N°1 - Our Original Musk Oil is believed to have been created in the 1920's at the "Keihl Apothecary." Discovered there in a vat labeled "Love Oil" in the late 50's, Kiehl's signature scent was reintroduced to our patrons in 1963.

Kiehl's Original Musk Collection - Inspired by the Original Love Oil. First introduced in 1963, our beloved "Original Musk" is shrouded in myth surrounding its origins. The legend of the musk oil says that the formulation was stashed away in a vat labeled "Love Oil" in the basement of our flagship store. Today these modern revisions of our classic signature scent create a complete head-to-toe collection.
