Drugstore Perfumes: Jovan Musk
Jovan Musk is an ubiquitous musk scent. It is not an earth shattering perfume, but nice nonetheless. It is a clean scent, soapy and fresh. It smells of freshly washed skin. Very subtle scent, very likable, nothing too grand. Musk in general has a sexy tag attached to it, but I associate musk with a warm feeling that is close to the skin. It is like a pashmina wrapped around the shoulders, comfortable, velvety and charming, in its own understated way. Jovan Musk, is just that. It is perfect for layering over perfumes that are overtly floral or sweet, for a musk kick. The original Musk for Women reminds me of The Body Shop White Musk, but is more linear than the TBS one.The Jovan White Musk is powdery and floral and similar to TBS White Musk.
The price ranges from $5 to $15 in most pharmacies for the cologne/EDT which comes in the same retro packaging. Chemist Warehouse has some great Christmas packs on sale right now. I am thinking of getting the body spray, just for the sake of nostalgia.
