Gilt Civet Woman Eau De Parfum
Gilt Civet Woman is a huge, romantic, classic-style chypre that wears its influences on its sleeve. Yet, it ventures away from the expected ingredients (amber, moss, bergamot), relying instead on a balsamic myrrh note that’s merged with orris to produce an almost powdery-rich earthy effect. The florals are playing a key role—especially the jasmine, which stands out the most. There’s a soapyness to it, but it’s kept in balance; musks exist, but they’re friendly.
