Warm skin accord
Leaning towards skin and fur, rather than the urinous or fecal type of animalics. Warm, humid, sweaty, hairy skin with tiny nuances of spice and smoke. Somewhere between warm bedsheets and the indoor habitats in the zoo. It feels incredibly familiar and triggers a primal instinct (either a good or a bad one)

Applied modestly it has a cuddly warmth. Slightly indecent yet wearable. With the amount applied the skank level increases rapidly. Absolute perversity is reached before you know it.

Not for the faint of heart, obviously! But for fetishists of the animalic genre, this is about as good as it gets. Personally, I am very fond of animalic notes that give a perfume composition a bit of funk. As a stand-alone accord, not so much.

... smells like skin and hair, unscented and yet not "unwashed"
Now it so happens that I can't quite free myself from morbid curiosity and interest in scandalous things either.... i've been reading reviews about animal scents and whatnot for the past few weeks... curious, but with the assumption that the stuff probably wouldn't appeal to me.... There was often talk of fecal notes - nope, doesn't have to be. And this much described bodily fluid simulant I really DON'T WANT to know.
Well, and then there is probably also the from 18 department under the niche fragrances.... and somewhere located there is my delicate blossoming affinity for musk fragrances. Not the clean-white, but those that combine with the wearer to a skin accord.

So, much of read, now I want to know it: have ordered with the 3 fragrances of Marlou to test.
-----------------------
Ambilux:
Already when opening the tiny bottle I'm amazed: it smells rather sweet.
The opening is sweetly inviting, through cumin there is actually something like a transpirant note, though not a spicy, pungent sweat note, but more like the scent of skin and hair, unscented yet not unwashed.
Rather like someone you are very fond of, who has slept, just woken up and still has his bed warmth on him.
Maybe like "family just got up." Warm, homey, comforting. Or like walking into a familiar old house where you feel protected and safe,
like your loved one's worn T-shirt that you secretly keep.

I can't say much about the notes because I'm not familiar with the different animalic scents. A bit I can make out cumin, but also the incense, overall I agree with the reviewers here who describe Ambilux as a second skin - but this is not unkempt or like several days unwashed (as Mr. UntermWert first perceived the fragrance and what he felt repulsed by), but humanizing, while clean, but just unscented.

In minimal doses on me, I experience the scent/smell neither dirty, nor do I associate it with excretions of any color or wild orgies.
What began as morbid curiosity I can now describe as happily disappointing: I'm surprised at how pleasant I find Ambilux, and what a comfortingly familiar feeling it elicits.
Others may find him sexy (for my sake, may well if he were involved in an appropriate situation), but that's secondary to me at this point.

Nonetheless, if I imagine what a fragrance would be like that wasn't immediately recognizable as a perfume, but that picked up on people's primal instincts and captivated them, just as Grenouille eventually created it in Süsskind's work, I think it would come pretty close to Ambilux.
And by that I don't mean that the scent smells like dead people, but of what makes people tick, what connects them, what makes them feel good. That includes eroticism, but does not force it.

Wow. Since I have me quasi curious and inexperienced the supposed boss among the animalic fragrances selected for testing, and then comes there so a cuddler therefore. ;-)

Love at first sniff!
When I was on YouTube looking for reviews of animal perfumes and heard about this perfume for the first time, a reviewer called it "unwearable". Another one even got nausea while testing it. But that didn't scare me off at all, it made me curious, and I had to have a sample. And then something happened that could be described as "love at first sniff". The smell knocked me out. But not with stink, but with its magic.

Yes, Ambilux is incredibly animalistic. Most of the other perfumes I know that call themselves "animalistic" can't stink in the truest sense of the word. One exception is "Hyrax" by Zoologist Perfumes, which I also appreciate very much. But Ambilux is completely different from Hyrax. The pink pepper and the cumin have a full impact right from the start and contribute to a certain sharpness and "dirtiness". But also the castoreum is clearly present and later gives way to the more sweet notes, but stays in the background throughout the whole process. But is it too dirty because of this?

No, absolutely not. For me, a fragrance is beautiful when it makes me feel good. And Ambilux does. I feel a deep sense of security when I smell it. It's like intense cuddling with a loved one with their very own familiar scent.

I also do not find the fragrance at all "unwearable". Without question, you have to like animal scents to wear Ambilux. So it is definitely not for everyone. But you don't walk around with it like a skunk. The mixture of animal and sweet notes is very balanced and pleasant for my taste. You don't leave an unpleasant sillage. Admittedly, the fragrance is not for a more festive occasion. It is too animalistic for that. But in everyday life it is very well wearable in my eyes.

The only downer is the durability. It's okay, but it could be better. Especially on the skin the scent weakens over time. On clothes it lasts longer.

50 ml perverse
Let's get right to the adult thing These 50 ml are the most filthy thing ever filled into a bottle. Dirty, perverted, animal sex like it couldn't be harder. All body fluids are somehow sniffable.
From sweat to saliva and censorship to censorship, no matter what orifice it comes from.
It smells shamelessly like Darkroom in the leather bar, couples sofa in the Swingerclub, station toilet in Berlin and all other places which are known as victims of human urinstincts (Ur-in-stink, not urine stinks, although that would fit again).
Those who have already fled to the water tap at Peau de Bête to avoid gag reflexes should avoid these 50 ml on a large scale. Here absolutely nothing is trimmed at all pleasing, on the contrary.
Here the deepest instincts and desires are addressed and brought to light.
You don't have to go into the individual scents at all, because this is not a simple perfume but a second skin. However it smells depends only on how it is confronted with animal/human smells.
However, a very high tolerance and/or inhibition threshold is necessary.
As far as durability is concerned, I can say that you can take more than 10 hours off. The surroundings will either flee or drag you into a dark corner if the distance is not too great. Hate it or f*ck it!!!
It can't be animalistic enough for me, so full 10 points for this dirty pleasure.

P.S. Now I'm probably considered a pervert here :-o

T-virus
The T-virus (tyrant virus) is a fictitious biological warfare agent. It first appeared in a video game called Resident Evil. This game was so successful that it was even filmed in several parts. I think that the game and the movies will probably be more familiar to the male readers, because it is already very hard stuff. This virus is able to reanimate dead tissue like corpses and bring them back to life. With disastrous consequences. It awakens one of the lowest instincts to eat the instinct. Injected into living and healthy tissue, it begins to mutate, which for the most part has dramatic effects. Except for one person who reacts differently to the virus. The main actress of the entire film series. She remains apparent as she is, but has extremely good reflexes and almost telepathic and telekinetic abilities. She has become a superman, so to speak. Which was also originally the target of the warfare agent virus. To create super soldiers. What the introduction has to do with the scent?,...more about that later!
The scent
As already mentioned by very esteemed Ergoproxy below me, 50 ml d'Ambiguïté is very well portable in small doses. It should be dosed very sparingly, otherwise the opposite of what it is supposed to achieve. Namely lure and spread a seductive effect. How does it smell? I compare it to a homedress that was actually worn far too long, which actually belonged for a long time in the laundry, but is still worn again. Bed linen after several wild nights. The fur of an animal. Untreated skin after a very long and hot day on the beach. 50 ml d'Ambiguïté does not even smell of flowers or plants. This should also be mentioned. It smells sultry, sweaty, heavy and spicy-bitter. It is a smell that is probably very familiar to many of us, but is not necessarily perceived as disgusting, because it is emitted by a perhaps beloved person or animal. It is more odor than perfume or a kind of pheromone. 50 ml d'Ambiguïté is an attractant when used specifically and in the smallest dosage, I am sure. Basically, he only reinforces his own clean self. He has whatever it is!
The Layers
Where we are on the preface. 50 ml d'Ambiguïté works on other scents such as the aforementioned T-Virus, reanimating scents thought dead and mutating boring and lax waters into incredible new creations. Since 50 ml d'Ambiguïté consists mainly of animal notes, it can be perfectly layered with scents of all kinds. That means one part 50 ml d'Ambiguïté on three to five parts of a carrier fragrance. I myself have already tried some variants. Even Mrs.Can, who reacts very sensitively to such kind of smells, could not perceive him any more. all smells like for example my beloved but unfortunately castrated Kouros, Salvador Dali Homme, old Chypre and other classics which were reformulated and tamed up to the marrow begin again to hiss, growl and sweat. This happens at the latest in the base note where the supposed animal notes are or have been sitting. The effect of oak moss is also considerably increased. 50 ml d'Ambiguïté lies on the carrier like a virus and changes its genetic code, so to speak. It begins to "bite" at some point. Even a harmless rose scent! I have also layered 50 ml d'Ambiguïté with Epic Man from Amouage and also with Absolue pour le Soir from Kurkdjian. However, these experiments then belong in a high-security wing and must never be allowed to come to light again. Never! 50 ml d'Ambiguïté It's certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but he has something to say. Worn pure or discreetly layered. He also has a certain aesthetic, namely the "warm-human togetherness!
Aesthetics, is always what you make of it!

A slightly smoky, yet pungent salty spicy-animalic Fall fragrance, balanced by a gentle dusty leathery-earthy base. Challenging, yet unique.
