The legend of the Musk origin lies in Indian mythology. The demon Pulaka, after enduring a long and strict punishment in the aspect of an antelope, obtained as a reward from Shiva the capacity to emanate a very intense perfume. From that moment on, Pulaka, thanks to his wonderful perfume, began to seduce the god’s women, thus breaking religious and moral rules. As a result of this, Shiva ordered Pulaka to abandon his demonic body, but he gave him permission to keep the perfume generated from his limbs, “MUSK.” This name Musk, which comes from the Sanskritmrgamada, means “Antelope love secretion.”
Our formula has its origin in a Houbigant Formula of 1928 where the aldehydes structure is enriched with Bergamot, Iris Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Rose Absolute, Civet and MUSK. To emphasize and enrich the Musk facet we infused the original formula with a generous amount of modern Musk Molecules.
