Re: shopping/scent

As far as I know, Gene, the musk used in perfume is harvested from mink and otters, not those hairy little beasts of the far north. Although some of those "musk" scents for men, English Leather in particular, smelled more like they used the musk from a randy goat.

Hello Jim,
I am sure you are correct. I do live pretty much in the state of
confusion. However, I thought I remembered one of the perfumes promoting the
fact that their scent came from the scent glands on musk oxen... that was my
reason for referring to not being an ox..... perhaps not. Where ever it came
from it was not one of my favorites to be next to.

I think you are confusing the scent marketed as "musk" with musk. I
think you will find that most perfumes have a musk [read ambergris,
also] base.
