Tried the Citrus Musk for the first time yesterday after my shave. It stung quite a bit, but I did shave with a new razor I'd never used before, so that could have something to do with it. It smelled wonderful, imho. Very citrus- light, crisp, refreshing. It is a fairly powerful scent when first applied, but it calmed down very quickly. Throughout the day it left a pleasant, faint trace of itself, which was nice. I am a big fan of the Pinaud Lime Sec a/s and when I initially opened and smelled the Citrus Musk it reminded me instantly of the Lime Sec (which I guess shouldn't be surprising). So before I splashed the citrus musk on, I did a side-by-side sniffing. They smell VERY similar, to my nose. Almost identical. I made my wife do a side-by-side sniffing, too, and she also thought they were almost identical smelling. So, in my opinion, although they are both great scents, you do not need to own both.

Has anyone else tried both? Have you done a comparison? What are your thoughts? I'm curious to see if others agree with me, or if my nose just doesn't work so well.

I like them both but prefer the Lime Sec. The Lime Sec is more straight lime that the musk to me. I'm surprised their not more popular.

Citrus Musk is far superior. Lime Sec smells really artificial to my nose, Citrus has a lot of stuff going on. During the summer, if I'm not wearing cologne, I'll put on the Citrus Musk.

there are many different varieties! original clubman, virgin island bay rum, lime sec, citrus musk, special reserve, vanilla, musk, and the infamous lilac vegetal. I own and use them all except for musk, vanilla and lilac vegetal. I had a bottle of the veg, but hated it. not a fan of vanilla scents. haven't tried the musk. i love the rest, though!

I really like the Vanilla, it's a very pleasant and (to me) calming scent.

Honestly that's kind of it as far as what I like in their line; the Osage Rub is a menthol bomb and good for summer, but you can really smell it.
