Term “animalic” refers to both raw aroma materials and “fantasy” notes

Our ANIMALIC fragrances are a Lifeline for Variety of Perfumes 


The term animalic refers to both raw aroma materials and fantasy notes (derived from synthesis in the lab) which directly evoke a scent reminiscent of animals either real ones, or more metaphorically, the libidinous nature of our own human animal instincts and their primal force. The olfactory receptor gene family is the largest in the mammalian genome (and larger than any other gene family in any other species), comprising 1% of genes. The evolution of vertebrate olfactory receptor genes follows the expected pattern of three separate evolutionary lineages: fishes, amphibians, and mammals. Fishes retain the greatest number of ancestral olfactory receptor gene lineages.


These fragrances are formulated using plant-based or synthetic aromas to compound animal-derived notes. These can be like civet, ambergris, a secretion from the sperm whale, castoreum, a secretion from the Castor beaver etc. Animalic fragrances, which are often rather pricey because they are more difficult to compound, they range in smell from sweet and woody to furry and leathery to stanky or dirty. As unappealing as that all may sound, when used in small quantities, these types of scents can be described as providing depth, sensuality, and warmth to a fragrance.

Please Note:  Due to the fact that our fragrances are very concentrated, we suggest that you test our fragrances in finished products before you make any conclusions about our fragrances.  Since our fragrances are so strong, we suggest only using 0.5 to max 4% in any finished product. Our testing notes should never take the place of your own personal testing.  Always test fragrance in finished (product) applications.


Animalic aromatic component is a common metabolite found in the feces of all mammalian and avian species. The detection of this component is routinely done by measuring the production of these compounds from tryptophan with p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde. Based on their physiological, biochemical, and metabolic characteristics, the composition strains are assigned to the formulation. Gas chromatographic and mass-spectrometric analysis of these fecal samples are performed to identify the volatile compounds responsible for fecal odor.
