Well known in the perfume industry as a fixative, musk / kasturi / she xiang is highly sought for its value and rarity. Fake musk over-saturating the market posing off as real musk, making it difficult for us to differentiate it from the real. An untrained nose might not even know how real musk is supposed to smell like. The fragrance of musk is highly elusive, you might even think “that’s it?”. Musk will not work well as a standalone perfume and that is not what we aim for in this soap. The main objective for us is its healing aspect.
