PoP continued…

“This, my friend, is where we part ways. Using the vernacular of an earlier generation, Roucel really goes for it, doesn’t he? It was so strong! At first I was worried it was the fragrance equivalent of a tattoo and I was going to have to laser off the outer layer of my skin just to get it off me. And it smelled gross. That seems like an especially inarticulate description, I know, but I can’t think of anything more appropriate to say. Might my sample have been from a bad batch? Because I’ve smelled lots of other Roucel scents and none of them smelled gross (Kenzo Air practically doesn’t even exist). But Musc Ravageur? Wow. Gross.”

I’m not exactly sure what triggered the gag reflex for Dan, since MR doesn’t hit any of the popular stank stops: barnyard, gusset, diaper pail. It’s rich without being a gourmand, though some MR fans claim they pick up chocolate. There is a “too muchness” to it, though, and while that might send Dan on a series of Silkwood showers, to the rest of us, Musc Ravageur smells like delicious decadence.
