–Please Note – This fragrance may also work in countless other applications.  The uses above are simply those products that we lab tested this fragrance in.  For other uses, it is recommended to test a small amount prior to full scale use. All of our fragrance oils are intended for external use only and should not be ingested under any circumstances.



Bulk Apothecary only sells the finest quality ingredients and our African Musk fragrance oil is no different.  All of our oils are custom blended by a team of perfumers that are industry veterans with the knowledge and experience to ensure quality and consistency that is unmatched in our opinion.  Furthermore our state of the art facility houses one of the largest stock inventories of fragrance oils in the nation making our signature fragrances available at wholesale pricing to the general public without lengthy lead times. 

Many people ask us what makes our oils so much different from the competition.  The little known secret is that many large suppliers of fragrances dilute their oils with cheaper carriers to increase their profit margin.  This is often done at the manufacturing level and allows some suppliers to sell their product at prices that are occasionally lower than our wholesale price.  These elevated carrier levels drastically affect product quality and In many cases will force you to use as much as 5-10 times the fragrance oil that you would need with our top quality oils.  Our Adriatic Fig fragrance oil can typically scent much more product than any other supplier we’ve evaluated.  That’s the Bulk Apothecary difference!

    Not too strong and not too light. Good in Cold Process soap. Does not fade over time. Doesnt burn the private parts at 5%! Good for my customers with problematic skin! Fine for my daughter with very sensitive skin. too. Rash free. Wow this is the best fragrance oil overall. Im impressed with how mild it is.

    Just enough fragrance

    Posted by Coco Smooth on 24th Feb 2019

    Using in body butters and sugar scrubs. For those who like a light musk this is perfect.

    Worried it would be to Musky

    I thought this musk might be heavy, but was surprised. It took some time for the full musk came to life for me. When it did, it was very pleasurable.

    African Musk

    Posted by Gloria Phillips on 27th Jul 2017

    I think maybe I overspoke in the first comment. The African Must that I received today, after letting it sit for awhile on a swart of cloth, the musk oil began to smell more of a musk scent, and it actually smells good. I would purchase this Musk Oil again. It is a strong musk odor, so after adding more ingredients, I think I will have a signature perfume that really smells good.

    Love it

    Clean, crisp yet sweet musk. A little perfume-y but in a good way!

    Light and fruity

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Apr 2017

    This musk is light and not as "manly" as I'd hoped. However, pair this with the Arabian musk and you get a citrus/sweet scent that is mild. Think Irish Spring with less flowery and more citrus and not as overpowering.

    This FO smells AMAZING! I just received my box (excellent timing as usual from Bulk Apothecary) and I cannot wait to use this in my men's whipped body butter. My guy clients are not that fond of loud scents. This on is subtle and masculine, absolutely love it!

    Soft & Pleasant

    Posted by T Norene on 27th Dec 2016

    I really like this fragrance, but gave it three stars because I was hoping for a very strong and masculine musk fragrance. This musk is very mild and soft. It smells really great in my creams and scrubs and will work well for both men and women. However, if you want the strong musky fragrance, then this is not it.
