For the past several years I have been ordering Bonne Bell Skin Musk Oil from Amazon because I could not find it in my usual stores. I have noticed that the smell is definitely weaker than when I first started using this wonderful oil. I thought that it was just me; having used it for so long, that maybe I just had gotten too used to it. In fact, the last several bottles, I could hardly smell it at all! It was interesting to read the reviews, as they also have noticed the deteriorating scent of this delightful oil. Please, please please, make it like the original Bonne Bell scent! Everyone knows me by this scent....and no other perfume appeals to me. Come on guys, please make us "Skin Musk Oil gals" happy and get our original musk oil back!

I have a running love affair with SKIN Musk oil that goes back almost 40 years. It was made by Bonne Bell and the frangrance was simply beautiful. It blended so well with my body chemistry that even when I wore it by itself, I received nothing but compliments. I've have people call after me begging me to tell them the name of the fragrance I was wearing. Usually, I apply it on top of my perfume to make the perfume last all day. It doesn't change the aroma of the fragrance, but enhances it.

Over the years, it has become almost impossible to find the original fragrance. The old Bonne Bell-made fragrance was in a bottle with a gold cap. However, it's now being made by Prince Matchabelli (Muckitupabelli), and it's not the same fragrance. The packaging is the same except the Muckitupabelli blend has a green top.

So, I was understandably excited when I found an offer for the fragrance with the gold cap. I ordered it. However, when I opened the bottle to smell the oil, it was not the original fragrance. I will not be ordering this anymore. If true SKIN afficianados know where the original can still be obtained, please let me know.

I have used skin musk oil since 1987, and this is the only scent I am able to wear. So for people who can not tolerate the smell of regular perfume this could be the scent for you. It's a clean, warm smell that is not overpowering to the senses. It is nice for the young people as well the not so young. I would also recomend the body spay too; the cologn spay is too much like regular perfume to me. Enjoy

I have been wearing this oil for 30 years, it's the only one I use. It is very light and soft. I get alot of compliments, especially from men. It lasts for hours and even when I can't smell it anymore others can. I tried the spray but it's not the same. I just hope they NEVER stop making it!

I have used this fragrance for 30 years, but that is coming to an end. Reluctantly, I am forced to choose another fragrance because the Bonnie Bell Musk Oil that I have used forever is no longer appealing to anyone! The oil is not as concentrated, therefore, there is no linkering fragrance......at all! This evident cut back on the contents of the oil has cost Bonnie Bell a customer. I will never purchase it again. So, due to other testimonials with the same complaint, why is no action to correct the problem. Don't they care?

I wish I'd read the reviews on this BEFORE I ordered the oil (which I used to love), and two different type sprays, all grouped together as a "deal". These products have NO what-I-would-call "fragrance." It is just a strong chemical smell with maybe just a hint of "Skin." When I used to wear it years ago, I, too, had so many compliments and requests for the name of what I was wearing. Why in the world did they tamper with such a wonderfully clean fragrance??? I was so very sad when all three products smelled like this. I first learned about "Skin Musk Oil", way back when, from my best friend; she always smelled so pretty, but has since died of cancer. I've kept a bottle on my make-up table for many years (in memory of her) and it doesn't smell half as bad as these I ordered a couple of weeks ago.

This is no where near the origninal Bonnie Bell Skin Musk. Watery, not even like perfume. Shame on Bonnie Bell for letting their name go for such a shoddy product.

Smells sexy and sophisticated....and it's cheap. Skin musk was one of the scent inspirations for SJP's fragrance 'Lovely'.

I was at a party last night and a friend was sharing how this was her go-to scent that was sure to seal the deal with a date, bag a boyfriend, snag a husband AND receive countless compliments from people all day long. I was excited to look this up and could not believe the low ratings based on how maniacally she described how utterly incredible this scent was, but as I read on, this is because the formulas seem to have changed from the original, awesome scents -- for ALL of the musk oils of the day, for which the reviewers were all pining for the original. There is one "original" Bonne Bell skin oil on ebay now and the bidding is up to $38 as I write.

Anyway, the REASON for the change is that all of these yummy, original scents had a base of deer musk, from the actual animal. Unfortunately, using deer musk was banned so now we are all stuck with crappy, synthetic musk versions. No matter how many complaints you make to these companies to bring back the original formulas, they cannot do it. I did read that the musk can be extracted from the gland without killing the cute little deer but that does not matter...using the animal musk is still banned. I will keep searching to find a true musk based scent and will post if I find it. I am on a mission.

Update: 12/30/13
OK, I think I found a comparison. It is called Egyptian Goddess by Auric Blends. The oil lasts longer than the spray and is so yummy! It smells like skin but better and is different on everyone. I am always getting "you smell sooo good!" Yesterday I was at a birthday happy hour and a woman who snagged her husband with the Bonne Bell Skin was reminiscing how she missed it. I said, "Wait!" And found the Egyptian Musk roll on in my purse. Both she AND her husband tried it and kept smelling their wrists. Haha! She said that it smelled so much like Skin.
Look up Egyptian Goddess and read the reviews. It is their runaway top seller along with their Love perfume oil coming in second. Good luck!

Read most of the reviews and was convinced that this was, indeed, the Skin Musk oil I've missed for so long. After receiving it and opening it to smell it, all I can wonder is if all the other reviewers ever actually used/smelled the ORIGINAL from Bonne Bell in the early 70's? If you are looking for that same scent, believe me, it is NOT in this product!

This oil doesn't have any of the subtle undertones and inviting warmth of the original. And, guess what, AMAZON DOES NOT ACCEPT RETURNS on this item, which I found out AFTER the fact. The very first time I've ever wanted to return a product - and wouldn't you know it, no returns on this fragrance. I have to wonder if it's because too many people want to return it??? Don't really understand why as the product is brand new, in the original packaging...if I had found this in a store, I could've opened it, smelled it, decided I didn't like it, and just put it back on the shelf.

I learned a lesson on this one, glad it was only an $11.00 lesson at least.
