Zibet or also from the Arabic Zabad is a highly ambivalent fragrance. It can be found in an incredible number of very old ladies' and men's perfumes. It is still used today in traditional African and Arabic medicine for women with severe hormonal dysfunctions such as hair loss, for example, and is indispensable in medicine as well as in the world of fragrances. If one smells Zibet in its pure form, the smell is almost unbearable. He smells faecal and extremely rotten. If it is diluted with alcohol, however, completely new impressions and possibilities open up for perfumers. I have already said that Zibet is a highly ambivalent fragrance, because after appropriate treatment it smells extremely intimate and sensual on the one hand, but on the other hand it can also awaken fear in us. In depth psychology Zibet awakens the ancient fear of big cats in us. The fear of becoming the prey and being a victim. If a wearer surrounds himself with Zibet, he surrounds himself with respectful fear. Where the male part Castoreum still threatens and interprets male strength and dominance, the female Zibet strikes mercilessly. Zibet is the most aggressive and impressive fragrance you can add with a perfume. It is highly animalistic, creeping, lurking, supple, impressive and instilling respect. But also on the other hand very sensual, demanding, charming, warm and dangerously beautiful.

Civet from La Via della Profumo contains a highly diluted form of civet, which has been completely stripped of make-up and has not been embellished. Not to be compared with Civet by Zoologist, where spices, flowers and resins were still played. So it's not for the delicate noses and tempers. Immediately after the first contact on the skin, a pungent odor rises into the nose which is very reminiscent of cat urine. Even I instinctively turn my head away and get escape reflexes. The scent calms down within a few minutes. Since the scent of Zibet is perceived differently by everyone, I can only say how I personally perceive it. After the stabbing note has retreated, Civet smells of damp-warm musty hay with light chords of bitter-green grass cuttings. Slightly acidic, pungent and spicy, moist and warm. Since Civet is very diluted, the fragrance retreats quickly and all that remains on the skin is a delicate and slightly acidified, tanned suede note with a hint of animalism. Of course you can wear Civet pure, because it is almost comparable to an Eau de Cologne and therefore appears very airy and light. Or you can also lay it out perfectly with old chypre, fougère or scents of any kind. Civet enhances and underlines every fragrance and surrounds it with an extremely attractive aura of insidious danger and subtle eroticism. I myself have already found my favourite to store. The king class of men's fragrances with Zibet. Kouros from Yves Saint Laurent. The result is, shall we say,... intoxicating!
