Jovan Musk For Women Deodorant Review

Jovan Musk For Women Deodorant Review

I am a great fan of body sprays, body mists, and body splashes. I always pick up a new deodorant or body spray whenever I come across them. I have been an avid user of Jovan deodorants when I was in high school and college. This time when I was on a shopping spree, I picked this one just to relive the memories.  The one which I am reviewing here is original Jovan Musk. This is available in Black Musk and White Musk variants too.

First of all, for those who do not know what musk is?

Musk is a class of aromatic substances commonly used as base notes in perfumery. They include glandular secretions from animals such as the musk deer, numerous plants emitting similar fragrances, and artificial substances with similar odors. Musk was a name originally given to a substance with a penetrating odor obtained from a gland of the male musk deer. The substance has been used as a popular perfume fixative since ancient times and is one of the most expensive animal products in the world.

Jasmine: Jasminum commonly known as jasmines is a genus of shrubs and vines in the olive family (Oleaceae). Jasmines are widely cultivated for the characteristic fragrance of their flowers.

Neroli and Bergamot: Neroli oil is plant oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium subsp. amara or Bigaradia). Its scent is sweet, honeyed and somewhat metallic, whereas bergamot, being rich in linalool (which is the main component in lavender), has more of an aromatic, soft, floralcy.

Product Description:

Experience the sexy feeling of Jovan Musk for Women. A delicate floral accord of jasmine, neroli, and bergamot blends with the earthy, seductive scent of musk. This mysterious fragrance unleashes your own natural powers of seduction. It’s what attracts.

Price:

175 INR for 150 ml.

Shelf Life:

3 years.

My Experience with Jovan Musk For Women Deodorant:

I use this deodorant when I am at home only. It gives me a cozy and relaxed feeling. The smell is so damn appealing that even my husband asks me what have I used, it smells so nice. The first thing that comes to the mind when I sniff it is that the smell lingers onto the body after taking a hot shower with a soap with a strong yet appealing floral scent. This is what I can describe about the fragrance. This is a woody fragrance. It’s very difficult to describe fragrances, I mean how can you describe abstract things perfectly! But the smell is definitely good.

This is a mild spray with warm soothing fragrance which will stay for a maximum 3-4 hours at a go. After that, if you want the smell, you will have to spray it again. The staying power is not great and that’s one feature expected from a good deodorant. This is the reason I use this when I do not have to indulge in workouts or other tiring exercises. I usually end up using it at night for that relaxing sleep because other than that most of the time I am out of home only.

Pros of Jovan Musk For Women Deodorant:

  • Smells heavenly.

Cons of Jovan Musk For Women Deodorant:

  • Staying power is less.
  • Not all may like this kind of a scent.

Final Verdict:

This is great spray for those who like musk/woody fragrances. This lifts up mood instantly and gives you a light heavenly feeling, but please do mind the staying power.  You can find many more appealing deodorants and body sprays in the same price range with great smell and great staying power.

@nidhi- if you are looking for floral smell deos and perfumes at reasonable price look no further than a brand called UDV (ulric de varens) they have a pink bottle called chicissme , and the one i am currently using is called desire. both are nice and sweet smelling. as is evident the pink is a lot more floral. body shop’s moroccan rose is also an awesome fragrance.
@pallavi- i have used jovan musk black and white both. i tried in deo form and perfume form as well. i find that jovan white smells too much like talcum powder, this one and the orange one is my fave…
