The former use of animalistic fragrances
Fragrances like ambra, musk, cibet and castoreum are animalistic odorous substances, which today are very precious and rare. To not harm any more animals, these scents are produces synthetically. These warm fragrances are strongly linked with sexual stimuli, and are to be used carfully, due to their dominance.If emphasised to much, they rather remind one of strong body odor. Ambra is a metabolite product of the sperm whale; musk is won from the musk sacks of Asian Red Deer; the very similar cibet is a gland product of the civet cat; and castoreum comes from the beaver's glands. The sad truth is, that many of these animals were facing extinction due to the strong demand of the fragrances - today they are under protection and the substances are produced synthetically.
