Marlou fragrances question the relationship we have with odors. They are created on a small-scale artisan production, handcrafted in the Grasse region of France.
L'animal sauvage is described on its website as "Once released from the bottle, fiery notes roar forth through a heady blossom haze before coming to rest, purring and subdued, wrapped in a pelt of cream and musk, upon the skin."
It features top notes of orange blossom and violet; middle notes of sandalwood and patchouli; and base notes of civet and musk.
LuckyScent has this to say about the fragrance:
Wow. L'Animal Sauvage is one naughty little kitty. In case you’ve been looking for it, L’Animal Sauvage is the sweet spot between the ferocious dirtiness of Serge Lutens Muscs Kublai Khan, the smutty florals of Kiehl’s, and the milky innocence of Helmut Lang EDP. In other words, this one is not only gorgeous, not only elegant, but above all exceedingly sexy.
A brief flash of flowers - orange blossom and violet – set the mood for passion, and before we know it we're lying on a massive bed piled high with animal pelts in front of an open fire in an ancient castle. The deep, civety funk of the fur mingles with the smells of desire- salt, sweat, skin, and human fur. But an echo of the sugared flower petals and milky sandalwood still glows through the haze of musk. This right here is the smell of human intimacy.
L'animal sauvage is an eau de parfum, edp.
