Beaver horny yes, white flowers no..
Again, I would have expected something different in an Initio fragrance and was not positively surprised. This is now my last attempt with Initio fragrances. Fact: We do not harmonize and I do not like any of the fragrances, because always some note disturbs...
I have to admit that I didn't know what Bibergeil is when I ordered my sample... Now I know. I would have hoped for a very soft but strong vanilla scent with a bunch of white flowers, unfortunately I would have as mentioned no idea what castoreum is, because I would have known immediately that the scent is not for me... Well, too bad... For all of you who don't know what Bibergeil is, here comes a short explanation. It is a secretion that beavers use as fur care and territory marking. It should have an erotic effect. In Europe, it is largely synthetically produced but since Initio make great advertising that no synthetic notes are processed, I do not know whether the castoreum is real or synthetic.
The fragrance starts on my skin extremely animalistic, probably because of castoreum.... It smells a bit like an animalic oud fragrance. In the background also swings ständisch a Champherische note with. The kind of champher that some musk notes bring about. So slightly dentist... Unfortunately, I don't even smell a hint of any white flowers. Absolutely none, although I love white flowers and can usually detect and distinguish very well in perfume..
If I but only the charisma of the fragrance, so the projection on me can act, the fragrance smells really good. I smell then an interesting spicy vanilla with only a faint animal note. Not so bad ... But when I sniff directly on my skin, the scent smells just animalistic and champherisch and is not at all mine....
I find despite this rather negative criticism, that it is the most wearable Initio but really only if you have a preference for animalic notes.... It could also be an oud/vanilla scent..So if you fancy a vanilla scent with an animalic note, you should try the scent. H+S is moderate...
