    Default Accidently came across an animalic fragrance


    Ive been searching for more skanky fragrances for a few months and havent came across anything too interesting (except maybe AAA Musk Gazelle).

    I bought propolis as a dietary supplement, but spilled some. After it dried gave off a very distinct musky animalic scent.

    1) Has anyone used propolis in a perfume?
    2) Is there anything like this i dont know about?

    Edit: Im not too sure if this is the right thread. Feel free to move it.

    Sorry pikachu2460, I've not heard of any containing this.

    I've used Propolis extract in the past. Here's what it is:

    "Honeybees gather propolis, a resin, from tree bark and leaves. They combine this resin with nectar, creating a mix of wax, pollen and bee bread. They then use this substance to seal their hives, protecting it from outside contaminants. They also use propolis at the entrance to the hive to sterilize themselves as they come and go."

    It's a powerful and natural antibiotic that I would take when I felt my immune system was a bit low, in order to avoid coming down with a nasty cold. Most of the time, it actually helped.

    Personally, I've never considered using it as a fragrance, largely due to its sticky texture.

    Have you ever smelled beeswax absolute? There are different grades of it available, but the one I have is pretty animalic, almost a urinous, oud-like, tobacco-ish smell. I haven't smelled propolis, but I'm wondering if it might be similar...
