If you're into mellow, earthy aromas, then musk is a great choice. There are many derivations of musk fragrance oils, but the base of each is similar to the glandular secretions emitted from the musk deer. Fortunately, these days you won't find any real deer musk in your oil because synthetic version can recall the natural scent. The earthy and mild notes of musk are quite popular for people who like to avoid strong floral or citrus smells and it's available in a wide range of men's body care, from deodorants and colognes to lotions and aftershaves.
