Animal, Mineral, or Vegetable?
Others have blamed civet for the "cat pee" and "urinal" cast of Czech & Speake CITRUS PARADISI, but it seems from the manufacturer's card that the source of the dirtiness is actually ambergris, also derived from animals (concretized excretions from the intestines of sperm whales--or synthetic facsimiles featuring ambrein, etc.), hence animalic. I think that the oakmoss is contributing as well, casting a grayish shadow of sorts over an otherwise clarion citrus cologne featuring grapefruit.

The main problem, for me, is that this cologne smells characteristically masculine. It does not smell feminine at all and pushes the limits of unisex, it seems to me. There are plenty of citrus colognes around with which I am smitten, so I can safely skip this Czech & Speake creation, leaving more for those who love it. You are most welcome. Happy to oblige. (-;
