I have been searching for a nice musk scent for a long time. The Aerin Amber Musk is not too heavy and has a nice warm fragrance... think of a yellow and red summer sunset and that's what you get! I have also purchased the Lilac lotion which I love, love, love! My next purchase will be the fragrance to layer. Both of these scents are very natural which is great because a lot of times with the musk and floral scents you get that way too heavy "perfume" smell. Expensive, but worth it.
I had always read about Aerin and her timeless style growing up, but never imagined such an amazing line would be created in her namesake. This Amber is outstanding. Soft, fresh, and an infinite depth. You can tell these were all meticulously created. I can't wait to try them all!
From the first whiff you can tell this is super-premium quality. A perfect fall fragrance, warm, rustic, ambery, sweet, soothing, and sophisticated, without being overly flowery. No overpowering femininity. Really a class above regular fragrances. Puts modern muse to shame.
I like Amber Musk, but it reminds me of two things: Estee Lauder's Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang and a popular skin musk I wore in middle school. Amber musk is lighter and seems to have less staying power than the Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang, but has a very similar overall fragrance. Both Lauder scents have that warm, clean drydown that I remember from the skin musk with the addition of vanilla, maybe? Either way, Amber Musk is a very enjoyable fragrance -- just not very unique. I think it's best suited for cooler weather, and would recommend it for women who like warm, ambery, non-floral fragrances.
I just purchased this fragrance. I was looking for a true musk to replace one I wore for years and is no longer available. This is a soft musk. Not a strong bold fragrance. I have worn it twice so far and am happy. There were no reviews to go by in making my decision. I was concerned because it is expensive. I spoke to a staff member at estee lauder online and she told me she was wearing it and loved it. So, yes I am happy with the purchase. And if I didn't like it, I could ship it back for free. If you like a soft musk, this one is very nice.
