Developed back in the 1920s, at the original Kiehl's apothecary in New York's east village, the brand's original musk was discovered three decades later in a vat labeled "love oil." The formula was recreated and in 1963 the company introduced it to the public as Original Musk. It's been a cult favorite ever since. The archival blend now comes as a refined oil and the handsome (travel appropriate) amber apothecary bottle might be the best looking thing in your bathroom. With a crisp citrusy start and an earthy, heavier finish (thanks to base notes of tonka and, what else, musk) it's a scent you can wear all year, for any occasion and one your girl wouldn't mind borrowing either.
