I’ve read many reviews of this fragrance online ranging from “smells exactly like the cocktail!” to “a wonderful citrus” to “I had to take a shower after putting this on.” Alas! I was in the final category. Upon application, the only thing I could smell was rubbing alcohol (a common note people find in this perfume). I was perfectly happy with this; I truly love the smell. Then, about 20-30 minutes into it, things took a turn. The alcohol smell morphed into a turnipy skunk kind of smell—it actually reminded me of Gain laundry detergent which I cannot stand. I started getting a headache after a couple of hours. I patiently waited to see if things could change. Many people describe a lovely and surprising drydown filled with woodsy scents. No such luck. It was shower time for me! I was disappointed but not surprised given what I’ve read about Moscow Mule. It seems like a grab bag of a scent that has a wide array of results based on the chemistry of the wearer. My chemistry just doesn’t mesh!!
