Vines that grow native in America (vitis labrusca, among others) are known for “foxy” or musky aromas and flavors.
On move-in day I opened the front door to a pungent, musky odor of pure mold.
Night had fallen now, and a darkness, musky with autumn weeds, hemmed in the sphere of yellow light on the old piazza.
I must hunger, though, before I could bring myself to touch the musky morsel.
They went on between the oaks, and smelled the musky sweet smell of the wild grapevines along the water borders.
It was infested with alligators, which filled the air with a musky odour.
A musky odor hung low over the hall, sweet, pungent, yet somehow unpleasant.
“But it is of no use, and its musky odour will be very offensive,” said Mr Rogers.
The flesh has a musky odor, and it is for this reason, perhaps, that they exist in such numbers throughout the country.
This will prevent the flesh from having a strong or musky taste when it is cooked.
