Here's what other people are saying about Mure et Musc...
I really wanted to like this one, but it just sort of fell flat for me. Initially, it smells beautiful and I do pick up on the blackberry in the opening. I noticed some of the ladies reviewing mentioned it smelled masculine and I agree with them. I think it may work better with a man's body chemistry. My complaint about this one is it's very weak after the initial opening, and the longevity is maybe 1 hour if I'm lucky. I love l'artisan, but this is my least favorite out of my collection. They do make a parfum version called "Mure et Musc Extreme," but I have not sampled it.

You're bathing in a stream with a bar of Ivory soap while your clothes dry out in the sun, draped over some moss-covered stones. Mure et Musc by L'Artisan Parfumeur.

This scent is as described: blackberry, musk, and citrus. Blackberry jam with a hint of orange zest, balanced by a powder (not animalistic) musk. Subtle for a fruity scent; also reminds me of bath bombs.

This is one of the only "fruity" scents I can wear that does not turn stale on me. It's soft, subtle and sexy without smacking me in the face. It happens to work well with my body chemistry, and I am glad it does. I love clean citrus and musk fragrances and this is a perfect addition to my fragrance wardrobe.

I tried this on four years ago in Paris and absolutely adored it. It had amazing staying power and was the perfect combination of fruity and deep - very sexy. Finally this past year I received it as a Christmas gift and it... smells different? Very little staying power and less depth. Who knows, maybe my body chemistry changed. I still like it a lot and would recommend it if you find it has staying power.

After reading so many laudatory comments about this fragrance, I'm sad to say that I found it rather sickening. To my nose, it's cloying and cheap-smelling.

Smelled like pure, masculine musk to me. My uncle said "It smells like a brothel!". I'm not much of a musk person, but Trish McEvoy's #9 is much better.

Sadly, for me, green plant-like top note, dry down to musk, kind of like stale pee. a most unfortunate combination. Yet I have smelled this on others and it's absolutely fruity-musky gorgeous. Body chemistry is truly unique after all . . . 2 stars for smelling good on my friends, otherwise zilch.

I find the staying power of this perfume to be fine. I Could still smell a light musk scent after several hours/next morning. The scent is not overpowering, rather very light and refreshing. I get lots of compliments when I wear this perfume. It will be an excellent scent for the hot summers in Arizona.

I really love this scent, but it only lasts on me for about 30 minutes max! Sad. It is a subtle, refined musk, and the blackberry isn't overly sweet or girlishly fruity. Maybe I need to try the "extreme" version in order to get some staying power on my skin?

So disappointing. For a much better scent and certainly more affordable, I'll stick with Trish McEvoy's Blackberry Vanilla Musk. Now THAT'S yummy.

I wanted to love this, but sadly, I don't. On me, it was all berries and no musk with very little staying power. I only got about a half hour of scent time and then poof! It was gone :-(

Smells like men perfume on me. I do not feel any berries here...:-(

i love this scent. i am not a fan of synthetic, cloying fruity smells and i was not disappointed here. the top notes are fresh and keep the musk from being too... hippy or masculine. but the dry down is so sophisticated and sexy. the blackberry and musk meld beautifully.

ick! smells like cedar on me...nothing else just cedar. Really disappointed.

Mure et Musc, so now I know. I don't tend to lean toward fruity scents, although I must say the addition of musk makes this one much more palatable. Certainly this scent is fresh and pleasant enough, a bit sweet for me, but nice. Though I do not need Mure et Musc for my collection, I must confess to several wrist-sniffings after application! Very darn decent.

I bought this one years ago for my mother at the Artisan counter at Bergdorff's. It's a very crist, fresh and sophisticated scent - not the succulent berry scent one might expect but rather a crisp scent of fresh leaves, moist earth and cold air. The musk is soft and subdued, and the dry fruit mixed with green reminds me of Mitsouko. It has that classic Guerlain style with a dark forest sensibility.

Smells like my dad's aftershave on me. All citrus, no blackberry. sigh....

I like it, but it doesn't seems to me anything to rave about. I like the musky note, while the blackberry stands out too fruity and childish, in a way, too reminding of TBS Wild Dewberry, even if definitely better quality.

Clean and sophisticated, but smells a bit "old" for me. Not sure what the hype is about.
