Perfume Description

Perfume Name Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan
Year Introduced 1998
Perfumer Christopher Sheldrake
Gender Unisex
Import or non-Import non-import
Notes cumin, musk, soft patchouli, vanilla, labdanum, rose, "ripe peach" scent and the aroma of brewed black tea
Country of Origin France

 

Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan was created by Christopher Sheldrake. It is the animalic musk that all other musks are just pretenders to.  It generates a lot of mixed opinion. The cumin on the open, if you aren't prepared for it, can smell pretty gamey, resembling more of an armpit following a three-hour rugby match. But hang on!  That doesn't last that long. Once it passes, you will start getting this soft, warmed skin scent.  

As I said when I smelled it the first time "It is the smell of humanity. Not the idealistic or beautiful part of it only, but the real part, the well-worn place of skin and sweat and memory and emotion. I can do nothing but bury my nose in this scent and breathe in all the misery and joy of being human." (from Perfume Posse)

  1. A bazaar of spices 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2018

    I read a review stating that this is how you would imagine Khal Drogo smelling and I completely agree. I smell spices in a bazaar, incense, candles, spicy candles, sex in a harem of scantily clad boys with tantric music, the bodies glimpsed through the smoky haze.....doesn't get much sexier than this. The first time I smelled it, I kept coming back, thinking, "Hey, did I catch a whiff of poop?" So, yes, it can be dirty, but its a good kind of dirty that fades into a delicious amber. I layer this with SL Fumerie Turque and a dab of Kilian Eternal Oud. If you are 20 years old, you may not be old enough for this perfume. Try again when you've got some experience under your belt!


  2. The most interesting perfume ever made 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2017

    Every time I smell this perfume, it reminds me, exactly, of being a kid in summer and smelling like I did back then when I came in from outside. It's pure magic. Yes, I love it for a personal reason. But I also think it's one of the most interesting perfumes ever made.


  3. disco death march 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2015

    a certain je ne said quoi ... smells like ... if you took a used leather shoe, filled it with palmolive dishwashing soap, 'degree' deodorant and a bunch of pencil shavings, rubbed it under Freddie Mercury's armpit, then lit it on fire inside of a Soviet DMV circa 1975.


  4. You gotta be bad and bold! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2014

    This is an incredible musk if you're not faint at heart. It starts off with a powerful punch of skank and animalism…you won't be wearing THIS to your mother's for dinner! Honey and the sheets you took off the bed the next morning after a hot date dry down to a cuddly mix of laundry and his lingering cologne on the pillow. Lusty and romantic, it's like sneaking away for a weekend of wine and sex. Most people wouldn't dare wear this, but I absolutely adore it. And totally yes to layering, if you go very, very lightly with it!


  5. Dirty Fresh 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2014

    It took me a long time to wear this one. You must spray into the air and lean into the mist. Do this and it is very wearable. Spray directly on the skin and you get dirty, fecal stench. This is for the bold and not a mainstream connoisseur.


  6. One of the best scents ever for layering 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2014

    On it's own, MKK starts off smokey and with just a hint of brash, then settles into a cuddly sweater on me. Layer it with almost anything, though, and it adds amazing depth and punch.
