Luxury Niche French Fragrance House – Initio Parfums Privés added a new fragrance – Musk Therapy to the Hedonist Collection. This is a woody floral musk fragrance and was launched in 2021. I find the name of the fragrance so fitting with what it does! This fragrance is all about a moment of calm..it transports you to a place where your mind can relax. Therapy for the mind!
Close your eyes, Smell and feel a new way of sensations, Experience the power of scent therapy…
Natural white sandalwood blended with an overdose of white and pink musk creates an ultra-addictive milky and velvety accord. The white magnolia activates the pleasure receptor while the cassis stimulates the energy, releasing a supplement of eroticism. MUSK THERAPY, a magical mood enhancer, paves the way to relaxation and a state of well-being. Finally, a delightful alternative to artificial paradises and their illicit substances. – a note from INITIO PARFUMS PRIVES
Packaging: Love the spring theme white bottle with gold detail. The bottle resembles another fragrance REHAB from the brand with only difference in the color of the logo. REHAB features silver logo while Musk Therapy is all about gold accents on the clean white bottle. The bottle design resonates with the juice so well!
Black Currant, White Magnolia
Rose Musk, White Musk, White Sandalwood
Composition: This is a very clean smelling fragrance with bright and sparkling citrus opening from Bergamot and a good mix of sweet and sour from the Mandarin. I also get the crispiness and slight bitterness of mandarin peels. – quite uplifting and joyous. Meanwhile, Blackcurrant comes in the picture keeping the notes fresh, juicy, and vibrant followed by creamy, delicate magnolia flowers. The fragrance gets softer, creamier without losing the bright quality. Musk and Sandalwood takes over the base making it a bit soapy, seductive and comforting at the same time.
Performance: Musk Therapy is not huge in terms of projection or sillage but is still long-lasting on my skin. It stays close to you and becomes a second skin scent.
Final thoughts: I love a little bit of zestiness from citrus in the opening. White magnolia makes it slightly sweet and creamy and Musk, as well as Sandalwood, makes it powdery and dry. It is fluffy, a bit soapy, intimate, and sensual. It is soft, calming, and pleasant to the senses. Musk Therapy is complicated but very sensual and sexy – almost like a second skin. It is one of the best springtime fragrances! It is very uplifting, joyous, and is a great mood-enhancer. It can be worn by both men and women and is beautifully unisex!
