Clever Beaver's interpretation
The Beavers are animals much more interesting than what i imagine as I discovered while i gathered information to make a link between them and the Beaver fragrance.They have a behavior similar to the human one regarding the way they modify their environment to favor their survival and, consequently, of the ecosystem where they live; they are also animals capable of learning by imitation and experience and they also have a very gentle behavior, being also creatures provided with some racionality degree and capable of playing each other pratical jokes too.

It's interesting that Chris Bartlettt, the perfumer behind this composition, was able to do something that resonates very well with this character.
First, Beaver is a fragrance that plays a practical joke on you, scaring you making you believe that it's a dirty animalic aroma to just quickly change into a gentle and refined aroma as a second link with beavers, almost as if (in a third association), they changed their aromatic profile scenario while the scent develops on you.

The animalic part here is suggested by a combination of synthetic castoreum, animalic musks and, i suppose, a very discreet civet use. This was the responsible to playing the joke on me, taking a hell of a fright on me when i applied it and thought that i would smell an intense fecal aroma the entire day, something that i hate and I'm not comfortable with at all. However, this impression goes for me as quickly as the time i took the fright. After that, i already started to smell a silky musky aroma, that blends for me very well with the iris note composing what i have notice in some fragrances giving me the sensation of clean linen sheets. To that, you get mixture what i imagine it's the synthetic castoreum, a slightly oily aroma, a mixture of leather and starch. This is an intriguing animalic part that shares attention with the citric and exotic but also comfortable smell of linden blossom. Little by little this oiliy phase is directed into a more clean and discreet musk, with hints of creamy vanilla and some leather and amber that seems very well behaved.

What most draws the atteniton here for me is the transformation process. Beaver for me creates this peaceful environment, with a hint of humour, that changed my initial resistence to it into a complete appreciation of its aroma. It's something composed in a way as intelligent as the animal it represents,
