A witty comment from Hades as he shoots billiards in his well-appointed study. Black Musc is a beautiful, slightly haughty entreaty from the underworld that makes clear how someone as old and wizened as the God of the Underworld could lure the spry, spring-like Persephone into his lair. Dark floral musk is impossibly rich and delectably sweet, a super concentrated, dark distillation of flowers that is unrivaled in intensity. As these former flowers entrance, painted amber emerges: like a magical amulet, this element glows in on skin, with an eye opening saline shimmer that helps us acquaints ourselves with our definitively subterranean surroundings. Surrounded by the dense, heady fog of floral musk and guided by amber’s light, we touch (or go bump, like things in the night) into old, aged wood bark–a vestige from time above, lived in the light, a statue reminding us of what life used to be before we acclimatized to the dim. But–dare we say it–the dark has never felt so entrancing, encompassing, and frankly, inescapable. In Black Musc you’ll have no choice but to stay… a while.
Masterful, utterly unexpected, Mad et Len personal perfumes achieve a seemingly impossible marriage, between the sumptuous and the avant-garde. Within the outer box package, a custom-made iron case houses each black-glass bottle.
