For some time I've been
wanting to make a plant-derived civet. The animal form is of course an ingredient
in some medieval grimoire incense, but no way will I sell
real civet because of the animal cruelty issue. And artificial civet?
It smells like exactly what it is--cheap fragrance oil--and as far
as I am concerned, fragrance oils and magic don't mix. After quite
a number of failed experiments, I've finally came up with something that works. It's
a combination of musk seed, oakmoss, naioli, cedarwood, and a number
of other herbs, and it smells civety without having any artificial ingredients, any animal bits, or
any bad karma. What a relief!
