REBRANDING IN PROGRESS: We are building the Maison Anthony Marmin upon the foundations of Maison Al Faransi

Musk Aswad



Musk Aswad is a classic of Oriental perfumery. The version offered here is unique. A complex blend of rich, soft and earthy notes, accentuated vanilla notes and enriched honey nuances to give you a unique black musk. It has a rather imposing olfactory character and a subtle masculine style.


Musk Aswad means black musk.

Spiritual Scent

This perfume is Nothing but Spiritual in Character. I wear it in my whole day at Friday. I wore the original musk too but this blend is really amazing & amusing with natural & spiritual elements due to it's ingredients. I just say "matchless & wordless".

Looooooong Lasting

15 pounds for black Misk?

I know black Misk and this is an amazing Stuff. I do not want to go into the individual smells which are great on durability.

Applied at 7 o'clock in the morning, rubbed lightly between the hands and spread across the face and shirt.

Hands for wudu washed with soap. and yet at 6 o'clock my hand smelled like Black Musk.

Also, my co-worker approached me and said I smell very good. Are you looking for good Black Misk, then buy this.

Hassam Ghazi - Pakistan

Its a nice scent and one of my favourites. Fragrance is quite complex,strong and quality is top notch.

Only thing I don't like about this fragrance is "its addicting".

Thanks brother for this beautiful creation!!!


Dre Sanchez - California

I'm not going to write about all the notes and nuances of this musk. Suffices to say it is beautifully balanced, rich but not offensive in the least. An absolute work of art. If you love quality attars not buying this wonderfully priced gem would be a detriment to your collection, enough said.

Govert - The Netherlands

A powerful composition with a strong peppery opening with hint of dark honey, leather and earthy musk tones. It develops into a deep dark musk and incense overtone with subtle green and dark honey tones. Once in a while a whiff of spicy cinnamon pops-up (maybe Cassia). Later some powdery tones come in accompanied by subtle woody, minty and green tones.

The longevity of this fragrance is great (on my skin 12+ hours). The sillage is quite heavy and easily fills a room. So a little goes a long way.

All is all a lovely creation which suits me very well.

Faouzi - France

Kevan - United States

AKAF continues to surprise me. At first I was wary of this, from a Westerner's perspective. I'd tried black musks in the past and they just didn't work on me. Too "hippy dippy", too much like an incense stick to actually wear as a perfume. This one is sort of like that, but better. Smoother. Obviously higher quality. A honeyed, floral, smoky, fruity sweet mixture that is very pleasant to the nose, and not at all offensive or "dirty". The honey note (as usual with AKAF perfumes) is very prominent and anchors the fragrance, supporting the other notes and smoothing out the vetiver. Still though, I'd recommend this as something to enjoy for yourself rather than to impress others. It's a very calming scent to be sure, but it's very projecting, and will get you noticed. Those unused to old fashioned attars might wrinkle their noses as you walk past. But if you've never tried a black musk before and you're curious, this is a perfect choice.

Tra le varie proposte di Abdul Karim Al Faransi nella categoria Musk (R)evolution, Musk Aswad (che significa Muschio Nero) fu quella che mi colpì di più in quanto unico prodotto di colore scurissimo rispetto gli altri e con piramide olfattiva particolarmente intrigante:


Dark Dry Plums

Kashimiri Honey

Indian Khus (Vetiver)

Woody Notes



L'ambra usata dal profumiere è una di quelle che paragonate alle ambre da noi conosciute, è la regina delle ambre! Assolutamente narcotica e fa presa in una maniera inaudita. La fragranza è assolutamente in pieno stile orientale, sembra di entrare in una moschea piena di incensi fumosi e resinosi. Questa creazione è degna di nota, meriterebbe un piedistallo.

Bravo Anthony, questo sarà un profumo che non dovrà mai mancare nella mia collezione!

Jeff - USA

Have this deep dark wonderful Musk on now. I put it on eight hours ago and it is still projecting. Would buy again and

what a great price! Always superb customer service!

N Keshwani - Atlanta, USA

It was a blind buy since I have faith in this house and this turned out to be one of the best. Fantastic fragrance, long lasting and pleasant.

Muzaffar - UK

Just a Brilliant attar, superior quality and lasts quite long, reminds of my child hood entering into Masjid-and the calm feeling I felt.

Would recommend for special occasions and not for daily use.

marian devadas ( esteve) - london

the most beautiful musk i ve sniffed so far. superbissim attar !

Darkbeat - Spain

The most precious black amber I have ever smelled. An intense and very very long lasting perfume. Exceptional "Quality / price" product.

Hitz - India

Ohhh my god amazing just little bit and you can muskyyyy and some high quality atmosphere. Some vanilla mix with great amber and very nice atmosphere around you and this atmosphere will continue very long time it may be 8-10 hour up. Thanks

Khaled - Canada

Very rich and extremely strong and long lasting scent. This is a high quality fragrance but its not for everyone. This is a more formal scent, not for everyday usage.

Robert - Canada

This is a typically Indian attar but of superb quality. The top notes are clear and bright and it morphs into a dark, heavy and deliciously rich composition. Extremely strong, this attar will last all day. The amber and musk notes are very reminiscent of a top quality Indian incense. Beautiful work!
