Around 15 yrs ago, GAP came out with a series of beautiful scents & oils that they encouraged layering/ mixing depending on your mood (discontinued after a few years). Among those, one was called 'Sueded Musk'. Essential Faith is almost its twin. Soft, baby powdery (baby skin), salty with a light airy musk-> described well by Kat. Dont think Kiehl's or Egyptian musks as those much stronger & potent.

There is an airy crispiness, but I don't get beachy or much musk for that matter. I give it 4 stars because it's an excellent scent for the days you want a light skin scent that's not boring.

Kat is spot on, this does have a light salty-ocean tinge to it, well for a few minutes then it seemed to meld into my skin and I couldn't smell it anymore. I have tried many musk oils, light, egyptian/skin type ones that create a lovely not too perfumey skin scent, but this just didn't do anything for me. Not to mention it disappeared so fast.

This is a beautiful fragrance. Really airy, light, the simplicity tinged with your natural scent makes a lasting combination that no one will forget. I love this scent so much. It's for people who don't need to make an enormous statement with their perfume. This is a very personal scent as well, only someone who gets real close to you can smell this. This is not to be mistaken for a timid perfume, this can be powerful. It's a beachy/salt watery scent and there is a touch of bohemian in here, it's not necessarily hippie, with hippie I think of patchouli and strong earthy scents, this is more subtle but unique.

To me, Essential Faith has neither the traditionally musky notes (as in animalic muskiness) that are often brooding in unisex perfumes nor does it possess the light ethereal notes that are in a typically light Egyptian musk type oil. Essential Faith has fallen into a category that clearly separates itself from other "musk" oils on the market.
The scent itself on me is fresh and oceanic. It smells of crisp beach air tinged with the salty waters of the ocean.It's crisp, clean and smells naturally pure. It's not a complicated scent but it's lovely in it's simplicity. It could be extremely sexy on both women and men. Not sure why only bohemian girls are drawn to it? Anyone chic and hip could put this on and feel great. If overdone, the airy crispness of this musk feels too sharp for my nose. I definitely adore it with a light touch.
