Perfume Review: Mona di Orio Musc Eau de Parfum


If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me “What fragrance are you wearing?!”, I would be a millionaire… or very close to it. I am pretty loyal and quite selective when it comes to the scents I wear and I’m a creature of habit.  If I love it, I will wear it for weeks, months and even years – if it fits the season of course.

So, what am I dressing my skin in at the moment? A new love – Mona di Orio Musc. I enjoy ‘clean skin’ musk scents, but those that are a little less on the powdery side. For me, wearing a musk in the winter is heavenly as they tend to be beautifully warm and comforting.

When Mona di Orio arrived at Etiket, I was immediately taken by Tubereuse for its gorgeous green, fresh scent. However, once I took myself through the entire line, one gorgeous flask in particular stood out from the rest – Musc.

The opening is very floral with notes of heliotrope and rose, but these notes dissipate quite quickly and settles into a delicate sweet musk. For me, it smells like lightly scented clean, soapy skin. It’s an understated scent with surprisingly excellent sillage and average longevity. And the compliments keep pouring in!
