I have worn Calvin Klein eternity for years and years but they've changed the recipe and it smells all citrusy now

I like musky smells and clean perfumes mostly, I hate anything too floral and fussy

Can anyone recommend me something that I might like please?

If you like musky and clean try cacharel noa. Also try Chanel Chance.

Ooh and Philosophy Grace would be perfect. I think there's a few of them and they smell like clouds.

Tom ford, Tuscan leather.

Jo Loves are spendy but LOVELY fragrances if someone wants to treat you for Christmas

The RED Truffle one is beautiful.

I'm unable to reconcile "clean" with "musky." Can you name some others that you like?

Chanel Chance is lovely as is Madamoiselle

Thank you so much for all your suggestions, I will go and look at / sniff out all of these!

Mutton sorry that wasn't clear - what I mean by clean is that it doesn't have that fussy, floral, headache inducing fug to it. Instead, it smells quite fresh but has a really fragrant undertone which is where the musk comes in!

I gotcha!

Try some Chanel scents for sure.

Diptyque philosykos is both clean and slightly musky
Unusual perfume at least
I layer with the korres fig body lotion and shower gel which have the fig frangrance but not the musky bit

Usually in "clean" scents the musk is white musk rather than strong sexy animal musk.

OP you might like Lalique. See if you can try some. They are light as air and utterly divine.
