Le Musc et la Peau is a true skin scent, your skin but better. It is a wonderfully sensual perfume to wear this way and also a very nice, warm base to layer with fresh, floral and spicy perfumes.
Le Musc et la Peau, 04.1 is a perfect example of Pierre Guillaume's remake collection. Musc Maori 04 was a sensual study of milky musk with lots of milk chocolate. In Le Musc et la Peau, Pierre Guillaume leaves the chocolate behind and tunes into the sensual milky chord of white musk with soft, delicate flowers and warm woody notes.
A hint of vanilla and tonka beans refers to the full gourmand character of 04; in 04.1 it gives the feeling of warm skin.
"My perfumes need skin to express themselves, they mean nothing without it." - Pierre Guillaume
Juraj from BL’eauOG has also written a nice review about Le Musc & La Peau: "Le Musc & La Peau is a molecular masterpiece. What I like in numbered collection of his is the combination of natural raw materials with refined, soft molecules."
bergamot, aldehyde, rosemary milk, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, cedar, tonka beans, ambroxide, musk milk
Pierre Guillaume Paris
Formerly known as Parfumerie Generale.
Pierre Guillaume's creations all have a strong identity and signature. He does not compromise and is totally independent, working from his atelier in Clermont-Ferrand. On the other hand, his fragrances never become too intellectual or avant-garde, and they are always very wearable.
One of the innovative techniques Pierre uses in his creations, is a process called Photo-affinage or photo refining, the flattening of olfactory peaks through ultra-violet rays. This technique gives his fragrances that characteristic liveliness in Cozé or that melancholic touch in L'Eau Circé for instance.

Such an indescribably wonderful scent ..... wants to keep spraying all day .....
Makes me enormously happy and I feel extra "dressed" if I wear 4.1 .........
Have already ordered 4 bottles .......
As a lover of green, zesty, spicy and woody perfumes, I was not expecting to like this. And in fact I LOVE it. The dry down is simply deliciously soft and the other notes take this out of a typical musc vibe. I don't care for amber in fragrances but this scent has actually made me appreciate it in small doses and enhances the depth of the musc. It's gorgeous on its own and as a great layer to add to other fragrances. (It does wonders on woody scents, vetiver in particular.) The longevity is pretty great for a softer silage fragrance, I can still pick it up on sweaters 2 days later. Projection is soft and intimate but more than a skin scent. If you're a musc lover this is a must try, and if you've never found a musc you like, give this a sniff. I'm now a very happy convert!!! And bless the ladies at Perfume Lounge for their knowledge, patience, and suggestions! Thank you!
Delicious soft fluffy musk. It wasn't Clair de musc SL for me (too soapy) but this I find delicious, not too floral or animalic, nice for spring. A real skin scent, so little sillage .... You really wear this scent for yourself!
Musc & Peau is an adaptation of Musc Maori. In the opening a fresh musk and aldehydes with a citrus chord. I will also smell ylang and something aromatic. Can't say if this is the rosemary but it smells nice. like warm skin, sweet musky and soft floral. Great fragrance!
