Animal Instinct . Scent Shifter + Fixative

Animal Instinct

warm skin | velvet fur | primordial wood   


what to expect - costus root . civet*. cedar trilogy 


Scent Shifters are dual action offerings; formulated to provide a mysteriously metamorphic element to your ritual of scent, whilst their fixative properties anchor the ephemeral notes within our botanical perfume oils, adding distinctive depth and extending wear time.


The aromatic accords imbued within these velvety balms act as a perfect crucible for the complex compositions within our perfumes to harmonise. They sorcerise + exalt the heart and deeper base notes, drawing out their natural charm whilst melding them into an entirely unique olfactory experience.


Scent Shifters may be worn alone to kiss your skin with their diffusive subtlety, although the true alchemy begins when you start layering them under your favourite scents...the possibilities are endless.



Handcrafted. Vegan.

* this material is free of civet absolute and contains no animal derived ingredients at all. It is a natural proprietary recreation, kept just below the level of conscious detection in this formulation (if you've smelled civet paste you will understand why so) whilst still providing the same depth and outstanding animalistic warmth
