Civet by Zoologist
What Does Civet Smell Like
Civet by Zoologist starts off with a bright and zesty aroma thanks to the dominant orange note, complemented by the citrusy freshness of bergamot and lemon. The initial impression is given a hint of warmth and depth with black pepper and miscellaneous spices, along with a subtle herbaceous touch from tarragon.
As the perfume unfolds, the heart opens up to a bouquet of floral notes. Frangipani, tuberose, and ylang-ylang take the lead with their intoxicatingly sweet and exotic scent, while the earthy carnation, powdery heliotrope, fresh hyacinth, and sweet linden blossom add a diverse, floral complexity to the mid-notes.
The dry down is where the animalistic civet note truly shines, giving the fragrance an unapologetically raw and primal edge. This is smoothed out by the rich balsam note and the creamy sweetness of vanilla. The dark and bitter coffee note provides a surprising twist, while labdanum, musk, and oakmoss lend a soft, resinous base. The spiritual frankincense, multifaceted resins, dry woods, leathery Russian leather, and earthy vetiver bring the scent full circle, grounding the perfume and giving it a deep, woody, animalistic finish.
Review of Civet
Civet by Zoologist is a perfume that truly comes alive in the cooler months, particularly during fall and winter. This spicy, resinous scent brings to mind images of a cozy night at home or a lively night out on the town. It's a perfume for those who appreciate unexpected elements in their fragrances, with a bold fusion of floral, animal, and woody undertones. The sweet and leathery aspects bring a bit of warmth to the mix, but it's the smoky and earthy elements that truly give this perfume its character. This unisex fragrance leans slightly more towards the masculine side, making it an inviting choice for men looking for a scent that's different from the norm. Civet's robust staying power means it won't fade away quickly, which, along with a reasonable price point, makes it a worthwhile investment. All in all, Civet by Zoologist is a fantastic choice for those seeking a daring, long-lasting scent.
