Civet Fragrances

Perfumes that contain fragrance note – Civetone| Scent profile: Civetone is a synthetic fragrance note that replicates the pungent and fecal odor of the byproduct of the anal glands of exotic civet cats. Although the natural civet note has been used in perfumery for centuries, the synthetic alternative is now more commonly used due to ethical concerns. Civetone is known for its radiance and warmth, which adds depth and sensuality to floral fragrances. Despite its off-putting origin, civetone has become an important ingredient in perfumery and is a popular choice for those who appreciate complex, animalic scents.

The African civet lives in the savannas and forests of South and Central Africa, while the Indian civet lives in Nepal, Bangladesh and Vietnam. These animals produce fragrant secretions in order to mark their territory. Diluted, after a while, the smell of civet secretion, which is normally strong and repulsive, becomes pleasant with an undertone of animal musk. In order to collect this secretion, the animals are kept in cages. Fortunately, this perfume today is mainly synthetic.
