Summary: Powdery vanilla-ery rosey type of musk - soft ,cleanish though I detect a slight undercurrent of dirtiness - not a lot - just a slight tiny tiny touch of skank . it's very pretty , very wearable . Longevity - average and projection is softish . A good starter Lutens ! If you like this you will love Mona di Orio's Musc which is stronger ,greater longevity and projection, along the same lines as this but with more powder , "body" and almonds.
Summary: I want to put in some good words for this fragrance. I haven't by any means tried all the Lutens, but this is the only one that I have repurchased, so it must be doing something right. It is quite a straightforward fragrance, and yes, it is somewhat like Body Shop white musk. But to me what makes this perfume special is that it is the only effortless musk of it's genre. A distinction that makes it worth forking-out for. Every note is clear.
Summary: UPDATE 2/20/2012: I bumped this up a lippie. I used up the sample I had over several different wearings and started to really like it. It no longer reminds me of eau premiere. I have tried tbc white musk and alyssa ashley white musk looking for an exact dup, but neither are. TBC white musk is really nice, don't get me wrong, I love it, it's lasts forever, but it's more animalic than lutens, lutens is softer and more complex.
Summary: This is a pretty, wearable Lutens. Unlike the many other fragrances in the line, Clair de Musc is easy, straightforward, linear white musc. I cannot detect many notes or ingredients a part white musc and iris, even if notes like bergamot, jasmine and rose are mentioned. A nice skin scent, office friendly and pleasant.It is fresh and transparent, ideal for daywear. In other words, and compared to the other much more complex Lutens, is is plain boring.
Summary: Notes: orris, musk, neroli and bergamot. This fragrance opens with a soft neroli note whose flowery sweetness is tamed by orris and musk. Orris adds a powdery quality to the accord, a gauze-like veil over the sparkly citrus note. Musk adds the impressions of cleanliness and freshness. The fragrance is nice, but rather pedestrian and intentionally old-fashioned. I agree it is the most accessible Lutens offering.
Summary: I have gone through 4 bottles of this and still loving it. It's a simple musk, powdery without being oldish and stays close to the skin. Lovely scent with tremendous staying power, lasted 8 hours on me. Great for layering with L'Artisan Parfumeur Passage D'Enfer.
Summary: Serge Lutens Clair de Musc remains the only fragrance of this line that I can wear, and I have tried most of them. On me it is a soft, soapy, clean musk and that is exactly what I like about it. It is a skin scent that is comforting for all seasons, and one of the few scents I wear after I shower in the evenings because I find it soft enough to sleep in. The price tag is steep at $120 for 1.7 oz.
Summary: Hmm, this is a pretty interesting one. I don't get the soapiness quality that others depict. For me, this is a raw, earthy white musk with . . . iris, maybe? It's not particularly sweet or even sensual, but the floral quality makes me think that this is more of a feminine fragrance. "Floral musk," however, doesn't seem to quite do this scent justice.
Summary: Still remember when I was in highschool, my best friend was crazy about Body Shop's musk products, from body lotion to shampoo... that really drove me nut. This is not a strong musk scent, it does not have the animalistic and dirty side to it. This is a very clean, gentle, well-behaved and polite floral musk, quite classy and office-friendly. If you are a hard-core musk fan, then this might not be for you.
Clean, feminine, unshocking musk perfect for day and work due to its "simple" feel

Summary: This is currently my second favorite musk. I'm a big lover of white musks (though the ones saturated with vanilla tend to make me gag). It's a very gentle, clean, white musk that doesnt' last very long on me, sadly-given the price for less than 2oz. But, when I simply must have a super clean, airy musk, I reach for this.
