Kiehl's Apothecary

Kiehl’s Original Musk


Kiehl’s Apothecary in New York City has been in business since 1851, and according to their website, introduced their Musk Oil in the 1920’s. It was shockingly called Love Oil at the time, and was re-introduced in 1963, renamed as Original Musk Oil. I wore it and loved it in the 1970’s, in fact,  everybody loved the subtle clean musky scent that smelled like salty sweaty sexy skin, and Kiehl’s Musk became THE unisex scent of that era.
