    a curiosity question: animal tinctures and pets

    something I'd be curious about is the reactions people's pets have to these deeply animalic tinctures! I was quite surprised when my cat did not freak out at the smell of straight civet, but simply turned his nose up at it.

    anybody else have pets with or without reactions to these pure animal products?

    My two border collie mixes both get quite curious about civet and hyrax tinctures. I haven't noticed any interest in ambergris tincture. I haven't really tried out castoreum or goats hair around them yet, but I think I may have to now that you bring it up!

    I also had a go testing with the dog. Why not? I had noticed some interest with the Hyracium and the Castorium but no interest with the Civet or Bee on my new puppy of 6 months. However, the interest was not marked. I then decided on a lure to see if this was accidental, and the interest was, sadly, far greater in a dirty sock. (Yes I did dare with my teenage sons smelly sock). But I suppose that contains human pheremones of someone he loves, so maybe that wasn't a good alternative.

    My dog was very interested in ambergris tincture a while back. She was excited and kept sniffing me all over when I wore it. Perhaps it reminded her of one of her favorite places - the beach.

    Lillybelle, when dogs find Ambergris on the beach they eat it. They are interested if you wear Ambergris in the same way as you would be interested in a man wearing a chocolate perfume.

    My dog displayed little interest in any of the animal scents. If its not food she isn't interested.

    my dog duke seems genuinely interested in stuff im concocting at my perfumers bench. hes been taught that its ok to sniff but not lick/eat my food and it has carried over to perfumes. he really likes musks(like me). if i let him smell a few in a row he will stay and keep putting his paw on my leg meaning he wants to smell more. he deff likes the raw ambergris as well.
