    Absolue Pour le Soir
    Gold Man Amouage (another perfumy animalic)
    Aoud Cuir d’Arabie Montale (I prefer this to the similar Dior Leather Oud, these two are not erotic to me unlike all others mentioned)
    London (burnt, sexy version of Oud Wood Intense)
    Kingdom Alexander McQueen
    Ursa (masculine perfumy body odor)
    Maybe even try Bois Mystérieux for another attractive body odor.
    I have yet to try any of these. Thank you for the suggestions!

    Al Ghaliya III by Mellifluence. The opening blast of deer musk is intense and beautiful.

    One of my favorite categories, from my wardrobe, I'd have to choose in no particular order:

    Oudh Infini from Parfums Dusita

    Zanzibar from Xerjoff

    Leather Oud from Dior

    Oud Maximus Autumn 19 from Bortnikoff

    Can't helped, but I don't like animalic notes.
    I tried YSL M7 Oud Absolu twice and end up selling them, also experimented with samples of Zoologist and didn't like any of them as well.

    Oh yes. Wonderful scent that is well behaved.

    Siberian Summer has a bit more bite.

    The Dark Side Francesca Bianchi is one that may fit the bill too.

    I just ordered Siberian Summer. Do you feel it is pretty animalic in an offensive sort of way or a rather “beautifully animalic” vibe?

    Well in my opinion one of Adams best as it is the only one I have two bottles from his line so far. It is more animalic than Prin's Mriga which is a stunner. In Siberian Summer many get the piss note throughout for some reason I like it but can't say it bothers me. It isn't offensive at all and is underrated in my opinion. I hope you like it. Good luck.

    I freaking love Kouros. Great stuff.

    Probably should buy a bottle soon but I have a couple questions regarding vintage or current. I'll post a thread.

    Kouros is wonderful.

    Vintage best of course.

    Moustache by Rochas is very civet-y in the vintage version I have.

    I love all the Animalics in my Wardrobe, however Liz Moores Salome is a filthy intoxicant from beginning to end.

    Runners up

    Mazzolari Lui which mellows to a cozy Masculine Amber Trail

    Dior Leather Oud Initial blast melds into a Masculine Smokey Leather Chair

    Hermes Eau d'Hermes all Vintages Masterful scent of Citrus and underlying animalic closely related to Human body.

    Furyo Jasmine Indol, Champa and Castoreum What's not to like?

    Dusita Oud Infini The scent of Goat dung cleaned up from the cement floor and a Vase of Vintage Roses placed in the spot.

    The only possible thing, and only for quibblers, surely, might be a perceived lack of subtlety.

    This is the one I think of, too, but I'm prepared to learn that it has no animalics and that it's all indoles.

    A friend sent me the original formulation of Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade and, whoa, it's a full-bodied monster (somewhat removed from the current version, which is still a bold thing but doesn't have the animalic overtones of that original release).

    I'm not a fan of animalics, really, except in small doses; an accent or undertone can add some interest, but if it's louder than that, I might appreciate smelling it, but it's not something I'd actually wear with any regularity. Among full bottles I own I suppose Shalimar is the clearest example, with stuff like Michael for Men and Rémy Latour Cigarillo offering rough-edged tobacco notes folks might consider animalic, but aren't animalic in the way a lot of stuff discussed in this thread is.

    I think of the the craziness in Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade as coming from everlasting flower (immortelle).

    Kingdom
    Kouros

    Will share my thoughts on the Today I Tried for the First Time thread. Any other thoughts on these? I'm wearing MKK now and the opening is just filthy!

    Musc Tonkin (I haven’t tried the original extrait, but I own the contemporary EDP).
    I really adore the furry, pseudo-incense drydown.

    It doesn’t come across as raunchy to me, but it is definitely a sobering wear.

    Love it so far! It's kind of a "furry" animalic (as opposed to "pissy" or something like that). It's quite seductive. It is a bit too "perfumey" for my tastes, but you've got me thinking that I would really enjoy Montecristo!

    Honestly same. MKK was a close call, though. I think I'm starting to really like the genre.

    The famous 'soiled underwear' quote from Luca Turin

    For me it was a sweet skanky leather that had hints of mould and moss.

    I would say that I like the way that leather, oud and patchouli are combined in Kilian Royal Leather

    Mysterious Oud by Bortnikoff and Layton Exclusif by PDM. None other live up to the animalic name in my book.

    The MOST animalic I own and enjoy wearing would definitely be Mayfair by Boadicea the Victorious.
