As a child, Calice Becker once asked her mother how flowers get inside a bottle of eau de cologne. The liquid inside was transparent, but it smelled strongly of orange blossoms. Once she started studying perfumery, she discovered the answer to this mystery, and today she herself fills crystal bottles with flowers.
At once fresh, honeyed, and warm, The Musc is a subtle blend of captivating scents. It opens with red ginger from Laos and natural lavandin grosso* from France. Natural and sustainable beeswax brings a creamy sweetness to the heart, paired with a pure note of Nirvanolide musk. Australia’s natural sandalwood punctuates the blend with warm, woody tones.
Replanted 20 years ago, Australia’s Sandalwood Album provides Aboriginal communities with protection and sustainability for their land.
One of the most respected perfumers in the world, Calice Becker has created world-renowned fragrances such as Dior J’adore and other “chef-d'oeuvre” for YSL, Marc Jacobs and By Kilian.

*Lavandin Grosso plant is a hybrid of two different lavender botanical species and because of this, Lavandin Grosso Essential Oil is said to be slightly more potent than Lavender Essential Oil.
Musk was once highly prized, expensive, and derived from the scent gland of the musk deer, a species native to mountainous regions around the Himalayas. Each drop had such a potent smell, it would have to be diluted before being used in food or perfume. Because of its rarity, musk became one of the most valuable commodities in Asia and so endangered the deer.
