The Animalic perfume to rule them all
This to me is the best animalic perfume ever created. Oh, and I am a huge lover of animalic perfumes, I've sampled pretty much all, and own most.
I'm baffled that this exceptional work of art doesn't seem to get much attention, and not many perfumistas talk about it.
This is an anmialic that has it all. Complexity is very high, one will not get bored wearing and exploring this beauty. It's quite linear from start to finish, but the amalgam of notes and accords makes the journey one of a kind, and one discovers new nuances every other wear.
In short, this perfume is sexual. Yes, sexual, filthy, not sexy. This is sex, intimacy, bodily odor, and fluids. If pheromones would have a descriptive scent, it would be this.
In other words, this perfume has several facets that are perceivable and that coalesce to create the final result. There are spices, mostly cumin, and aromatic notes like parsley, and chamomile. There is also an agrestic nature in here, the smell of grass, hay, and wildflowers. There are woods, and resins, mostly labdanum and styrax, but I wouldn't say that this perfume is a resinous experience, if anything, these two resins give a smoky vibe to Peau de Bete. And the big players here, the civet, castoreum(the leather accord here), and skatole. The three of them are the core players, with all the other notes and accords dancing around them.
The scent is musky, spicy, earthy, grassy, a bit smoky, and leathery. Quite fascinating, there is a prominent creamy, buttery texture that others have also mentioned. Salty as well. Do you see where is this going? Musky, creamy, salty. The skin of the Beast might just as well have been named Human Skin. The smell of human skin after a long night of sexual interplay. But not in a bed, but rather on the wet grass and soil.
One would think, do I want to smell like this? It's artistic for sure, but do I want to wear it? Here is where this perfume shines once again and sets itself apart from the other animalic creations. The perfumer somehow managed to take all this untamed, shameless dirtiness in Peau de Bete, and give it a beautiful sophistication, smoothness, almost elegance. The sillage and projection are low, which means, only you, the wearer, will be able to fully appreciate it, and only those that come close to you. Who would have thought, an uber animalic composition, that can be worn anywhere, anytime, almost like a second skin, an extension of one's identity?
I could go on and on about why I believe this perfume is a work of genius, but I would stop here and plead for all animalic, skanky perfume lovers out there to try this one. You will not be disappointed.
Also, this one didn't make the cut for what is deemed as commercially acceptable, therefore, it's not going to be around for long.

The Tyrolean Alpine Model
"What do you smell?"
"This is a marmot, I strangled it with my bare hands and then rubbed myself with it."
SO animalic this scent smells, you could easily call it that without actually dragging it into the gruesome.
The Liquides Imaginaires and I have a funny story behind us, a somewhat bizarre acquaintance has once smelled very intensely of incense and on the question of what that was then only eye batting was answered: "Jaaaaaa, Fortis".
They are in Vienna but only in a perfumery and until now I have not managed to actually try one.
On a Florence holiday I then passed the LI shelf in a department store and the saleswoman meant: We leave the stock open, they gibts currently minus 30%.
My eyes could have illuminated a tunnel, so they have beamed and I have already tried through.
Next to the Other LI, which I bought, but this leaves the most lasting impression.
Why?
Must be because of the ingredients.
Zibet, castoreum, Skatol - all dinge, which sound somewhat foreign and there is not so.
Castoreum - a pheromone that is supposed to make other beavers fuzzy.
Civet - extracted from the civet cat
Skatol - the scent of excrement.

In fact, Peau de Bete is the expression of the animalistic, it can best be compared to a horse, after a long race, which then sweats.
Even if it is not exciting, loud and shrill, it is all the more thin, animalistic and wild.
It implies a certain urine tang, something rough, something clean, but something unwashed - as if one had a certain patina.
Rarely has it been so difficult for me to describe a fragrance, to put it into words - just as rare, however, has it been for me until now to classify the fascination for this fragrance.
I, who normally uses perverse amounts of perfume, am already overwhelmed with 4 sprays of it and my environment even more.

No question - in the right amount and properly applied the fragrance exerts a certain attraction to the counterpart, a certain mystery, what you can not grasp.
And just something raw, wild - perhaps the beaver pheromones also have an effect on humans.
At a beaver castle at night I would not pass with it in any case.

Not in the flesh
If you read some of the comments here, you might think that with Peau de Bête, the incarnate with his sulphur smell would be standing in front of you. To say it right away: That is not the case. But frankly, it was exactly these negative comments that made me want to try the scent.

@Tanninaz was kind enough to let me have a lavish bottling at a reasonable price. Many thanks for this! Now it lay already some weeks with me, and I had tested it only once briefly. The first impression was "It's not that bad!". At first it reminded me a bit of Far NWest, but it was much more wearable. Today I really put it on.

Without question, Peau de Bête has nothing sweet. Nothing at all. Nothing. Nada. Niente. If you're looking for that, you've come to the wrong perfume. But some notes give it a very woody, spicy, fresh quality. I like that. The first time I sprayed it, I got the association of herb garden. The cumin is also there and gives the fragrance something dirty. But in a very pleasant way.

After a short time, the leather notes also begin to set in. From then on I feel transported to a place. I cannot describe him exactly. But there's something homely about him. It smells of leather seats. Not the really expensive ones. The place is more like a simple café than an expensive suite. And all the while, it maintains that freshness
The animal notes, on the other hand, remain very much in the background. Without question, they contribute to the overall impression, but they blend in rather well rather than being overpowering. The most dominant is, as I said, cumin, which I consider to be a bit of a "planty animal" scent.

I really like Peau de Bête overall. He is not the animalistic boss. There are quite others that I find more challenging, for example my signature scent Ambilux by Marlou, Hyrax by Zoologist and last but not least Far NWest by Phoenicia with its skunk chord. All three have notes of different human secretions. Peau de Bête completely lacks this. But there is something intangible about it, as @Ragadoodles correctly writes. I'd like to quote them here in conclusion. She writes in her comment:

"For me PdB is a fragrance full of security, confidence, intimate familiarity and strength
My everything will be fine Scent."

I couldn't put it better. This is exactly the feeling the scent gives me when I wear it. Maybe it's the animal notes that do their work in the background. I know the feeling of Ambilux, and there they definitely are
I feel very comfortable in this animal skin!

Masterpiece, hidden gem...
This is a masterpiece guys ! This fragrance has no heart notes and the way it smells sooo unique so artistic, earthy leathery..really gives you the smell lf wet grass in a foggy winter morning in the countryside ( not the best smell and in fact its abit daring but that smell has fortunatly a polished character which makes it wearable ) ..its a piece of art, you can wear it or not but it is. Its not about quality or performance its just ART.

I reccomend to smell this one if you like Musc Ravageur

This rather pungent and challenging, animalic smoky spicy-green fragrance, settles to a more gentle animalic/leathery, dry earthy-woody base
