WHAT IS DEER MUSK
The term "Musk" is referred to the penetrating animalic substance which is obtained from the musk gland of the male musk deer. The reddish brown musk paste the musk pod contains, is dried after harvesting, turning black and granular. The dried musk grains can be tinctured with alcohol or macerated in oil. The aroma of the tincture turns pleasantly animalic musky after the considerable dilution, a complex scent described as earthy and woody, animalistic or something akin to the odor of babies’ skin. Musk oil can be derived from the deer musk pod of the musk deer in Asia, the Tokapi deer and the Chinese musk deer, as well as from other animals, such as civet, beaver or muskrat, or from certain plants which contain substances similar to that of animalic musk.
Musk is a key component in perfumery, as it gives long lasting power to other scents while acting as a fixative. It has long been seen as an aphrodisiac, given the original purpose of the musk for the musk deer - to mark the male musk deer’s territorial boundary while attracting the females. The organic animal musk contains natural male pheromones, substances that stimulate the nervous system, influence libido, promote euphoria and instills self confidence while attracting the opposite sex. Musk is an aromatic, rare substance, highly pheoromonous by nature and an aphrodisiac by its animalic origin.
