To give a clearer understanding of my review the last time I worn the cologne of Royal Copenhagen Musk was back in the early 1990's.Back then a company called Tsumura took over manufacturing the Royal Copenhagen cologne line from Swank.But I have been wearing the aftershave for many years which is made by Five Star Fragrances.To me it smelled really identical to it's previous manufacturer even down it's more greenish tint of fluid color than blue.
The Musk fragrance in the older formula (and through the aftershave) was a really clean and sharp scent.A lot of aldehydes in this that gave a fizzy quality to the notes of this non-sweet and sophisticating scent.Soapy and floral from lavender,talc powder,a green moss quality,a decent amount of musk,and I get a hint of leather from it.All of this submerged in a bath of aldehydes creating a very crisp powder,fizzy clean soap.The soap sort of melds to the moss and creates a green soapy feel.Now the Royal Copenhagen Musk aftershave is discontinued by Five Star Fragrances and since the cologne wasn't locally found I ordered a bottle.
To be honest if I never smelled the older Royal Copenhagen Musk before and stumbled across this...I might give it another star.To be frank though it's a stranger to me.It's powdery but not soapy.It's floral but I'm not catching the lavender...carnations maybe.It develops some musk yes... but no moss,hint of leather or soapy quality...what remains of the notes submerges in a different bath this time.I can only describe this as an aquamarine blob-like scent made through an ocean scented laundry detergent.In short the shade of blue this scent changed to reflect the change.Smells like Tide detergent with the edge stripped and given a darker tone.It's thick though,very blue,and every note smells coated in it.Obviously from buying my aftershave in 2007/2008 the Musk fragrance has underwent a reformulation that may be pleasant to a newcomer.But a lifeless and negative change in comparison to the original formula.
