White Ball of Musk with a Black, Dirty Center

"(...)My friend left the party with a huge bottle of Roederer Cristal Rosé Champagne that we christened the new store with the next day. Then I had this idea of doing a white ball of musk with a black, dirty center that would be the symbol of the city." (Fabrice Penot for Los Angeles Times)

Le Labo launched their LA exclusive, Musc 25, which costs twice as much as the rest of their collection and contains white musc, ambergris, patchouli, rose, amber, vetiver and a human semen note. Not having smelled it, I shouldn't be casting judgement so fast but if it's anything like the semen note in the shuddering Secretions Magnifique, I suggest you get your semen-smelling kick from a different source, where it is probably given for free and while may not bear your name and date of purchase on it like the Le Labo bottle, could possibly have other more amusing side-effects and personalized features.

If I made you laugh than that's something! The Covet photoshoot a lot of fun (and also more work). This one was such an easy target ;)

Simone yakirati,
I tried Le Labo's Vetiver 46 and that's all. It did not smell much like vetiver but nevertheless was interestingly smoky and incensey.
I was alwasy particularly interested in trying their Ambrette 12 (I love ambrette) but I usually find that adding synthetics to this fine essence usually ruins it rather than improving on the subject.
