    Gosh, yes. The vintage parfum in particular was loaded with civet.

    Try Tom Ford Urban Musk from his White Musk collection. I find it rather skanky and animalistic but at the same time sophisticated.

    (May I ask once more: Does Absolue pour le soir have a noticeable civet-component? Or is it rather subdued?)

    I have a sample and its a dirty honeyed musk but I can not smell the civet unless its buried in there somewhere.

    And for a must try animalic cheapy - Commando by Smell Bent for a wonderful, sweet fecal musk.

    Many great suggestions already.

    If you do go to Paris, though, I second Larimar and suggest you stop at the JAR store and try Ferme tes yeux. I think it is unbalanced, but it is hard to beat in the direction. As all JARs, it is obscenely expensive, but smelling is free.

    Reports are that current Joy is a clean rose soliflore with no civet, but I have not smelled it. The Patou store is right in front of JAR, so you can check that yourself too (and report, if you find out). For now, I keep checking on the vintage perfume on ebay (together with the equally civety vintage My Sin).

    Lots of good suggestions here. For a fresh, almost ozonic civet/castoreum scent (yes, a weird combination but it works) please try the excellent Djin by Michael Storer.

    Dig this thread!

    Warning though. Untitled #8 is basically a civet accord, and that's it. The OP was asking for civet being accompanied by some supporting accords or other, and that's not it. But I enjoy using my 1ml sample to provide some more skank to a frag I feel needs depth and complexity.

    Got some Tabu on my arm now fresh from CVS, where the employee dropped the bottle on the floor. I can only imagine the hazmat guys required if it had broken. It's a "spray cologne" aka pressurized sprayer so it kicked out a LOT of juice on my arm! I probably had some insane sillage at Trader Joe's right afterward, with the disgustingly waxy-aldehydic (and not civetty) Tresor on the other arm. I can attest Tabu is very heavy on the civet, quite urinous.

    Seems dirty but it is actually a raw honey scent. Not animalic civety at all.

    Yep, Jean Pascal is one I'd vote for. I'm putting one up for auction soon.

    Got to add Ungaro II and Andron as well as MKK and Monsieur Carven. MC is delicate though IMO

    Wore Bal A Versailles today. When I first bought this I though it was quite skanky...now I feel it's simply a nice vanilla scent. I blame BN.

    Honey is very animalic to my nose. Not barnyardy like civet, but definitely urinous and warm-musky-salivic. I can recommend Pacifica brand raw organic honey from Whole Foods! The most animalic commerical honey I've come across. You can really smell the hive in it.
