Kouros Eau de Toilette and how it is called 'animalic' sometimes. Well, Neroli Animalis is 10 times Kouros in that sense. Makes a good conversation starter, but obviously not suitable for daily wear.

Patchouli Intense Eau de Parfum from a niche house that has received great praise. It’s masculine and has a unique, complex scent.

Jasmin et Cigarette is simply brilliant. Indolic and somewhat on the animalic side. Lust Perfume this one is a lot of fun, a party in itself. Indolic not animalic. Big and incredibly loudJasmin dark brown and masculine. Heavy on spice and muskJasmin (2020) somber and serious jasmin topped up with cuminJoy Eau de Parfum jasmin on civet. One of my alltime favorites, modern version is more lily of the valley than jasmin, thoughJasmine OD focuses on the sweet and fruity aspects, with a tacky bubblegum impression at firstHoping to get my hands on soon:À la nuit Sarrasins love to hear all your suggestions, guys
