Brut Musk Fragrance Reviews


Come on ! Explain how a scent so "nauseating" in the eighties (the decade of nitro powerhouse loud scents !) is still on shelves in... 2015 !! The well named Brut Musk is just a bold Brut with Musks amped up ! A honest macho flanker of an old classic ! Good !


This is not even a fragrance, I throwed the free oil sample which I received! This smells like some old cheap stinky oil which u put and boom! You'll never make friends again!


oh, KajiraSuzanne, thank you soo much for your review! I am having such a great laugh! priceless, exactly!

Fabergé (as they were then) must have done research and consumer testing before releasing Brut Musk, so someone must have said they liked it. It's also still being sold, so someone must be buying it. I am currently among them, but I should add a few remarks of explanation.

It's likely that if you go into a shop and spray a generous blast of a tester bottle on your wrist, you'll disappoint yourself. Done this way, it just smells sweet, like caramelised sugar, with a burnt rubber undertone and after an hour you'll be desperate to wash it off.

When this is applied differently, there is in fact a fresher floral top that hangs around for a while above the cumin or anise that people seem to find so offensively overwhelming. It's a musk fragrance, so it's always going to be somewhat strong, but spraying on too much is guaranteed to be disastrous.

Brut Musk's great benefit is that its longevity and sillage is way above that of most other fragrances. This can also be it's curse if over-applied. Apply lightly, by depressing the atomiser only halfway. Just once onto the chest under a t-shirt or shirt so that it is slightly muted. The after shave is easier to control than the EdT and is not as pungent.

It's probably not the fragrance for a romantic date, though people's tastes differ.


This is where Brut becomes shockingly "bruteful".
Brut Musk is a cumin bomb. As soon as you spray you get a very strong blast of cumin which evolves into a burnt rubber smell which possibly could be due to a huge amount of myrrh.
The edt is so strong that one spray on the neck or chest will leave you gagging all day. One spray on the forearm is the way to go with this one. The deodorant is slightly more subtle and the better choice.
You will either love or hate this one. There's no inbetween.


KajiraSuzanne, your review is priceless. I have read this review many times when I need a laugh fix. The imagery that comes to mind is....well, priceless!


I was surprised to see that this scent is apparently still being made. To me it was the male version of Giorgio, but worse (because Giorgio actually smells pleasant in small doses)!
I loved the original Brut, and even today's version is better than many expensive designer masculines. However, Brut Musk was a foul, toxic, nauseating mistake of epic proportions, and I do not say this just because heavy musks trigger my migraines.
In the late 1980's I witnessed a restaurant being cleared out by a man wearing this scent. At first people thought the horrific smell was something burning or malfunctioning in the heating ducts.
My Mom almost fainted and I had a headache all night.The guy was very well-dressed and clearly impeccably clean and well-groomed, but his scent was nasty.

Update: Today, my friend Kelly asked me what Brut Musk smelled like. I told her to imagine the stench an angry male rhinoceros would emit if someone poked him in the buttocks with a spear, causing him to perspire profusely AND pass gas.
