An inimitable fragrance

Musk comes from the glands of the musk deer , an Asian mammal. During the mating season, it emits a very strong odor, an inimitable scent to seduce females.

Tahara Musk, derived from white musk

A sensual fragrant synthesis

Chevrotin is today a protected species and to meet the high demand in perfumery, natural musk has become a synthetic product: white musk.

The first musky molecules were discovered around 1880.

Beyond offering a variety of fragrances , white musk is long-lasting and delicately scented.

Although it has no medicinal properties, Tahara Musk does not cure skin or intimate problems. It is recognized for its superior quality and refined scents. These make it a must-have for Middle Eastern women's toiletries.

The benefits of Tahara Musk

Traditionally, Tahara Musk is used at the end of the menstrual cycle since Tahara means “ to purify ” in Arabic. Its use is a sunnah for Muslim women because perfuming their private parts with it helps eliminate possible odors of blood . A hadith refers to this period of the menstrual cycle: A woman asked the Prophet (SWS) about the great ablutions to be done after menstruation (menstruation). He explained to him how to proceed and added: “Take a cotton scented with musk with which to purify yourself” [reported by Bukhari (hadith 315) & Muslim (hadith 499)]. However, the hadith does not specify the type of Musk to use to complete this ritual cleansing. It is therefore entirely possible to use other musks after one's major ablutions. In addition to reducing bad odors , it leaves a fragrant trail on the skin : it can easily replace our perfume or deodorant bottles .
