Description

“A slightly sweet, mellow, floral, ambiguous, oscillating between urine/fecal side and cashmeran-y soft almost wool-like scent, exactly how a musk should be”.

Animal musk has been a vital part of perfumery for centuries. it is used to add sensuous animalic and arousing aphrodisiac elements in our creations. Many musks are considered base notes and fixatives in perfumes. They transform botanical perfumes, add extra dimension and a sense of “Down and dirty” or physical arousal and attraction.

There are a number of animals around the world that produce similar musk fragrance compounds.
Among them are the Musk Deer, Musk crocodile, the Musk ox, the Musk duck and of course, the Musk Rat.

This tincture is made from the ground fresh scent glands of the north American Muskrat at a ratio of 1:3 using 80% ethanol.

Please note: Though it can be worn on the skin for its fragrance, this is a perfume ingredient and truly shines when blended with other aromatics. It is not sold as a perfume in and of itself.

These animals were trapped for their fur and much of this material goes to waste.

“The Musk Rat or Ondatra zibethicus in Latin, is native to North America. Its specific name zibethicus means ‘musky’, being the adjective of zibethus ‘civet musk; civet’, or Civet-like in Latin. The genus name comes from the Huron word for the animal, ondathra, and entered New Latin as Ondatra via French”.(Wikipedia).

It lends a soft warm animalic note to perfumes.

Should we use animal products in our food, cosmetics and aromatic materials? I have found there is no universal answer that suits us all.

I believe that only by engaging and cultivating our own intimate personal relationship with Nature, can we plot our own path and divine our own code of ethics. Only then can we be responsible and responsive to Nature’s needs, true to ourselves, and make informed choices that ultimately affect us all globally.

————————————————–What customers have said about this product—————————————————-

“This has amazing potential to be utilized in a similar fashion as the nitro musks from the 1970’s. Very beautiful, and I can’t wait to start working with it! Quickly shipped, and well packaged for safety! Thank you :)” A.F.

“A wonderful dark animalic smell of dark Swiss Chocolate (Lindt und Sprüngli Excellence 90 %) only lightly sweet and in the background a hint of dark Oudh like Oudh Cambodi. Good for people how think that musk (real and artificial) is too sweet for them and not animalic enough.” R.J.K.

“Remarkable stuff ,primordial, a hairy handed gent”

” The aroma is incredible. Falls somewhere between the “skank” of civet and the leather & fruit of castoreum. Has a unique effect on perfumes.”

“Shipped quickly..superior quality! Thank you”Please note-This is NOT a perfume! It is a perfume ingredient and meant to help transform and elevate perfume compositions. It does not smell like commercial perfumes.

    It's okay as long as you are into animalistic notes like me … It's not great but it is certainly better than average experience

    I can't believe the world of perfumery is barely discovering this gorgeous natural musk. Humanely sourced from an overpopulated species, and the scent is divine. Hope it doesn't get hit with the musk-ketone ban. I want to see it out there, sharing its beauty with the world! I have such appreciation for the rare animalic wonders of Apothecary's Garden – thank you, Dan!

    I’ve been in the business of aromatics for decades and am embarrassed to say I had not had an opportunity to try Muskrat. I love it straight from the bottle and in my blends. It offers that special touch of animatic mystery, hauntingly wonderful. Thank you Dan for offering this.

    Phenomenal tincture, beautiful product. Was very nervous about this one as it gets a mixed reception, but what it does for perfumes is amazing and won't be without it. Created "exalting" accord with it (and ambergris, civet) and, yes, it's that critical.

    I am really surprised at how lovely this is. It reminds me of ambrette seed… definitely has that animalic leathery undertone but at 20% it is already its own perfume. So far I have used straight on wrists but can't wait to blend with other materials. Excellent quality!

    Arrived quickly! I ended up diluted it down to 2% for perfumes. It has a lovely creaminess to it with a slight funky odor. It smells fuzzy, warm and velvety.

    This is wonderful stuff! An initial impression of parmesan-ish cheese that dries out to a velvety combination of milk chocolate and a cistus essential oil kind of effervescent floral musk. Love it.

    High-quality products, very prompt shipping, great response time for questions etc. They also allowed me to tack two items onto my order after I placed it–really appreciated their flexibility on that point. Would recommend them to anyone who is serious about sourcing unique olfactory ingredients. Truly beautiful ingredient; very reminiscent of widely available musks like tonquitone and isomuscone but with more complexity. Definitely an asset to have on hand! Thanks again

    Leider ist das teure Produkt ausgelaufen. So konnte ich den Duft noch in der Umverpackung aus kundtofffolie wahrnehmen. Zur Nutzung aber nicht mehr geeignet. Schade, denn eine bessere Verpackung , anstelle eines Kuvert hätte dies richtig verhindern können.

    had to make a blind buy just in order to get a reply, during that time he increased the shipping price to my country. not sure if on purpose or not but seems highly coincidental. this is expensive for what it is.. its weak smelling and if you wanted 3-5% muskrat composition in your perfume trying to get that when this is already diluted to 20% means your perfume is gonna have a load of alcohol more then essential oils. Thus diluting the smell and then making it smell like alcohol fumes.

    I was surprised how much I like this scent, because I'm not typically attracted to animalic scents. However, if you let this sit for just a moment and blend with your body chemistry it transforms into a beautiful floral scent that would be a great addition to womens fragrances.

    I'm a natural perfumer who loves animal scents and Apothecary's Garden has become one of my steady go tos for natural musks, two in particular: muskrat, and ambergris tincture up to 10% in concentration. With my last order they included a sample of some wonderful ambergris oil that I've been playing with more and more lately. I've already got stuff planned for that now… never enough natural scenting in my world! – AROMASMITH

    "She smells like a muskrat." should be a compliment. I'm currently wearing muskrat musk oil and it is one of the most beautiful things I've ever worn.

    Starts out old lady perfume (holycrap that's a lot of flowers in the attic!). Then it melds into old world roses and daffodils, two seasons apart paired together like star crossed lovers. They join and merge away as Sweet Pea sings a solo then falls way to the wildflowers of grasslands filtering the waterways. A moment of wet dog, but not a dirty mutt, a summer hosed down hound that is drying in the sun. Now it lingers as floral bouquets hanging under the eaves.

    This is bliss.

    I was expecting to have to smell this with a really open mind, knowing that animal musk are really pungent. However, I was very surprise; It's smell wonderful in this state! Dan have made a really good job at making this smell accessible to olfactive pleasure, if I can say.

    I definitetly recommend this shop !

    A wonderful dark animalic smell of dark Swiss Chocolate (Lindt und Sprüngli Excellence 90 %) only lightly sweet and in the background a hint of dark Oudh like Oudh Cambodi. Good for people how think that musk (real and artificial) is to sweet for them and not animalic enough.
