Explore how perfumers have been using musks: from the original animalic materials (civet, deer musk and castoreum) to modern ‘clean’ musks.
One of the very few perfumes on the market containing real civet (one of the richest and intense materials out there). It was ethically sourced. MEM is an exercise in old school sensuality. The perfume’s warm sweet animalic drydown gradually reveals itself from behind a curtain of herbs, flowers and resins. Incredible longevity too, this is why the idea of musks was not abandoned altogether by scent masters but rather synthetic alternatives with comparable longevity and complexity have been developed.
A bit of a retro affair with a number of vintage, rarely used molecules and bases including Animalis. This material gives PG3.1 a really suede like, soft leathery nuance almost as if the perfumer used deer musk (which is not in use anymore due ethical reasons and scarcity).
An homage to the historical animalic past of musks, the combination of the musk molecules in PG4.1 has been carefully adjusted to smell like warm skin. For added credibility (the smell of skin is a complex affair) there’s creamy ylang-ylang for depth, tonka for sweetness, rosemary for acidic nuance and ambergris for saltiness.
