Spanish term or phrase: amizclado
This is a press release relating to a new perfume, the sentence is "un Eau de Parfum Floral, especiado y amizclado". I have found the word "amizclado" so I guess it it isn't a mistake, but what does it mean...?
Thanks in advance!

Musk is the name originally given to a perfume obtained from the strong-smelling substance secreted by a gland in the abdomen of the male musk deer, and hence applied to other animals, and also to plants, possessing a similar odor. The organic compound that is the primary contributor to the odor of musk is muscone.

The variety which appears in commerce is a secretion of the musk deer; but the odor is also emitted by the muskrat of India and Europe, by the Musk Duck (Biziura lobata) of southern Australia, the musk shrew, the musk beetle (Calichroma moschata), the alligator of Central America, and by several other animals.

To obtain the perfume of a musk deer, the animal is killed and the gland completely removed and dried, either in the sun, on a hot stone, or by immersion in hot oil. It appears in commerce as "musk in pod" (i.e. the glands are entire) or as "musk in grain" (in which the perfume has been extracted from its receptacle).

musk·y 1 (msk)
adj. musk·i·er, musk·i·est
Of, relating to, or having the odor of musk.

"At length, he was not more than one hundred yards from a bank, covered with green trees, when a puff of air strongly impregnated with a musky odor reached him."
Five Weeks in a Balloon by Verne, Jules

One more thing, "especiado", it's "spicy"... take a look:
Spicy describes fragrance notes that have a warm or hot character, as opposed to the neutral or cool Herbal notes. Their scent is pungent, similar to those of cinnamon, or clove and thyme oil.
