In today’s economy, saving money is always a consideration, and one of the easiest ways to save money is in your personal care. It isn’t always necessary to use those high-priced designer items when grooming or dressing for the day. A lot of the cost of expensive perfume is simply from advertising, so buying cologne that isn’t advertised a lot can save you money. The cologne or perfume is just as good; it just costs less because it hasn’t been advertised heavily.
Jovan Musk is a economical line of aftershaves, perfumes and deodorants made by Coty US, LLC. Jovan Musk products can be found in most drugstores and superstores such as Wal-Mart, Meijers and other large grocery-drugstore combination type stores. This gives you the ability to layer the fragrance so it lasts much longer. You do this by applying the Jovan Musk deodorant for men or women, which ever is right for you, then the Jovan Musk aftershave, followed by a light application of Jovan Musk cologne or perfume. This will create a much more subtle, yet deep, fragrance than just a surface spritzing will, and will give you a much better chance to stop body odor, as well.
The line of fragrance was first introduced in 1972, which is about the time period when musky smelling fragrances were becoming popular. Interestingly enough, musk is the name of a substance that is obtained from the gland of the male musk deer; not a muskrat as is commonly thought. This substance has actually been used as a popular perfume base since as far back as the days of Cleopatra and the Egyptian pharaohs. However, the real musk that comes from musk deer is not actually used in most “musk” perfumes today. Instead, a synthetic musk, which is also known as “white” musk, is used. This white musk is what is used in Jovan Musk.
Some of the first advertising for Jovan musk was extremely sexy. Their ad headlines said: “Sex appeal. Now you don’t have to be born with it,” and “Drop for drop, Jovan Musk Oil has brought more men and women together than any other fragrance in history.” Another ad said “Jovan Musk Oil Perfume. The only musk oil dedicated to the proposition.” That was very racy advertising for the 1970’s! As you can imagine, profits soared. In seven years they went from $1.5 million to $77 million in sales.
But what about today’s Jovan Musk? Well, it’s available for women and men in several different fragrances, however all still have that trademark Jovan musky scent that so many people know and love.
Jovan musk for women has a delicate floral combination of jasmine, neroli and bergamot that blends with the earthy seductive scent of musk. Neroli oil is produced from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree. Bergamot is a citrus fruit that is less sour than lemon and is used in flavoring Earl Grey tea.
The Jovan White Musk
Jovan also offers another fragrance that is scented with gardenia for women who like the heady fragrance of that exquisite flower. For other women who don’t like floral scents, Jovan offers a fragrance they simply call Woman, which they say is an exotic blend of spices, orange flower and ylang-ylang, blended with hints of nutmeg and coriander accents. The scent sounds somewhat masculine when described, but is actually ultra-feminine.
One of the newest scents in the Jovan Musk line of fragrances is Jovan Black Musk For Women. This cologne is specially formulated to work with a woman’s body chemistry to create a unique and, as they say, dangerously sexy seductive scent.
The men’s line of Jovan musk fragrances continues with Jovan’s original fragrance that includes warm wood scents that have an amber base. All of their colognes work with the male body chemistry to create unique fragrances that are advertised to attract women. Jovan Sex Appeal for Men is said to be a “provocative, stimulating blend of rare spices and herbs.” This blend has no other purpose other than to attract women and it is said that it works fairly well.
Jovan Ginseng N.R.G. For Men is one of the first fragrances that uses ginseng and the result is a fragrance that is invigorating and fresh and extremely masculine. Jovan White Musk is a clean fragrance that leaves behind a scent of freshly showered man, using hints of clove, peppermint and thyme to create a crisp, ocean breeze-like scent. Jovan Black Musk For Men uses the slogan “It’s what attracts.” And as they say, it is a potent fragrance for the mysterious man who is daring and dangerously seductive.
It is possible to smell very good to the opposite sex without spending a small fortune on a tiny little bottle of mysterious fluid. The secret is to try on the fragrances at the drugstore before you buy it. Spritz a little on your wrists and then walk away. Wear it for the rest of the day and if you still like it, you can go back the next day and buy it then. If not, go back and try a different one. If you keep trying, you are sure to find an economical fragrance that you like.
