I am quite a fan of the perfume Dzing! by L’Artisan Perfumer and I recently read that it was to be discontinued (though I am unsure if that is true or not). I also happen to love animalic notes in perfume and classical music so I decided to make a fragrance that was a nod to Dzing! whilst focussing heavily on the animals and named after the famous piece by Berlioz.
Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender
Jasmine, Leather, Tobacco
Saffron, Cinnamon, Cloves
Musk Civet Castoreum
Ambergris, Sandalwood, Cedar
Guaiac Wood, Hay, Tonka Bean
For this formula you will need to acquire some good animalic bases and some quite expensive musks, but you will definitely love the end result which is spicy, earthy, animalic, and comforting. It should paint the picture of an old carnival or steam fair at night with all the scents that go with it.
