To my nose, Cardamusc is a study in the combination of cardamom and geranium, taking place over soapy white musk. It's a clever combination - both cardamom and geranium share a dank leafy green quality, as well as fruity and herbal facets, and a floral roundness.
Cardamom can be problematic, as it has a very dark, sour urine facet that can be downright horrifying. The soapy musk does a good job masking it for a while, but a few hours in, after the soap fades, there's a point where Cardamusc ends up smelling like anise liqueur served in a damp, dark, urine-soaked cave.
In theory, I've geeked out on the combinations of smells enough to have enjoyed spending a day in Cardamusc, but at no point have I ever smelled it and just thought "that smells good". Instead, it's more of a curious fascination with something I haven't really liked that much.
