Tonkin Vietnamese pure Musk oil - VET MUSK

Sale price Price $875.00 Regular price

The pinnacle of musk, the king of all perfumes.

Tonkin Vietnamese musk oil, 100% natural, pure, artesian, made in the house of the perfumist more than 100 years ago. It is literally impossible to make this oil nowadays. This oil was supposed to be gone a long time ago, but somehow a bottle of it survived. If the other oils are officially museum quality this one is the jewel of the museum.

So, this is not only one of the rarest oils in the world, but a true art and a piece of history that probably should be in the museum, literally.

Made by the master perfumist of our house more than 100 years ago and passed down from father to son, this is not only the inheritance and combined experience, knowledge, and dedication of centuries but an olfactory experience that very few people in the entire history of the world had the privilege to experience.

This oil was made with the intention that it would be sold exclusively and strictly to kings and royalties, it was made from one of the rarest and the most expensive raw materials in the world Tonkin Vietnamese musk. No expense was spared in making this oil.

About this oil:

100 years old in real time (not by aging or any other process)

Exclusive (this oil is exclusive to the house of the perfumist and you will not find it anywhere else)

Authentic (made through one of the oldest Arabic recipes of musk)

Natural (we put our name, guarantee and 3 times your money back on it)

Pure (made with essential oils like rose and sandalwood, no hidden materials or unethical stuff)

Artisan (fully in-house, made in very small and limited batches)

Our promise:

No matter who you are, where you are, or what you do. If this is not one of the best real musk oils that you have ever smelled in your life, we will gladly give you your money back.

The first nose:

Musky, rosy, aromatic. Even with all the strength and the first punch, you will receive from the very first sniff you will not resist smelling it again and again.

The opening, after only a few moments a new world will open a magical world that is full of musk, light animalistic notes (not barn), roses, wood, coffee and civet with dark chocolate, truly magical.

The dry down:

After about an hour you will get what people fantasize about, the scent from the fairy tales, and the only perfume that can represent a one thousand- and one-nights stories, I’m not going to associate this with other scent profiles and say sultan musky, temple civet, horse and hide because most people are not even familiar with those kinds of scent profiles, so I will describe the emotions. An Old Temple, kings riding horses, knights and dragons, an emperor with a thousand concubines, a bed of pure silk. 

We will guarantee that this oil will last a minimum of 10 hours on the skin, 24 hours on hair, 3 days on clothes and your whole life on a carrier (waraqa, mouillette, strips, scent tasting paper, or whatever it’s called nowadays).


Extinct – Rarest – Cannot be found anymore. These are the rarest raw materials on the planet, museum quality oils. These oils cannot be found, replicated, or re-generated. There are such very limited amounts that they get sold by the milligram. The people who work and deal with these oils around the world can be counted on one hand. The majority of the time, these oils will be restricted to royalties and billionaires. The lowest age of these oils starts from 50 years old going up to 500 years old. Anyone who holds one of these oils holds an experience that is exclusive to one human being on this planet. Only 0.0001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.


Very limited – Extremely Rare – Extremely hard to find. These are oils that it’s simply a matter of time, and by that, we mean a few years, before it goes to the previous category (extinct). These are oils that most probably were a symbol of luxury and opulence throughout the ages and very few privileged people in history had the chance to enjoy them. Only 0.001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.


Limited – Rare – Hard to find. This is the lowest of the categories we have but it’s still considered by many as a pinnacle to express class, luxury, and taste in its most aromatic form. These are very limited oils, very hard to make and very few have access to them. These oils are not extinct, and we really hope they won’t be anytime soon, but they are simply rare because of the raw material they are extracted from, the process and the quality in the making and distillation. Again, these are all 100% natural oils, very concentrated and very powerful, and they will dominate in comparison with any alcohol-based perfume or cologne in every single aspect, every single time. By maximum measurement, only 0.01 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.

We could’ve easily listed those oils in any of the private perfume auctions, sold it directly to one of our Royal clients, or simply transferred it to a perfume museum for a multiplied price, but we didn’t!

Because we want people to know about it, smell it, experienced it so they can love it and appreciate it then and only then we will have a real chance of saving it.

This oil was made over a 100 years ago way before the musk deer was endangered the musk was mainly made from picked ground musk and not hunted animals, as this was the main way of collecting it in many regions. This was way before the major companies and the black-market traders over sourced it.

Many people are oblivious about Musk, and that is the reason why we are doing this we want to shed light on the subject, introduce real musk to people, and bring attention, awareness, and education to the people and community can move and act to protect the musk deer and other important species.

Finally, everything we offer, sell, and make is 100% NO- KILL, ethical, and eco-friendly and we carry that code very sincerely and seriously.
