Goddess Venus, wearing little more than a white linen sheet and gorgeous pearl earrings, turns the smooth expanse of her naked back to the viewer as she coolly contemplates a satyr offering her a silver chalice of ripe purple grapes with a grin that means he's offering a lot more than grapes.

Our single note musc is a non-animalistic, modern musk that works beautifully on all genders. It's lovely layered with florals, teas, woods, and aquatics and/or as a stand alone perfume. Layered underneath another perfume, it makes an excellent fixative that stabilizes perfume volatility (unwanted changes) and improves the longevity. As a neutral musk, it's especially good for folks who want something distinct without being overbearing and/or need to be in environments where big perfume is a no-no (hospitals, schools, nursing homes, gym, etc.). It's also good for hot weather when heavier scents tend to get cloying.

Best layered over: Greens, light florals, delicate herbals, citruses, berries, aquatics, light teas, woods

Best for fixing: Perfumes that are too volatile, linear, uninteresting, or that need 'lightening' up for hotter weather

Layering notes let you shift and alter your scents to match your mood or the seasons, to take advantage of subtle skin chemistry changes, or to dabble with the olfactory arts of niche perfumery. Layering notes are also an easy way to customize your favorite scents and make them uniquely and unforgettably yours.... or can help rekindle a romance with perfume you once loved but are getting a little bored with. The simplicity and uncomplicated linear qualities of single notes are distinctive in and of themselves for stand alone.
