Tender, intimate skin scent of dry musky woods, fleshy florals, creamy curves, and furry fuzzy comforts.
Soft Animal invokes the personal stories of touch, the scent imprints created during memorable touch experience, and the deepening evolution of our skin hunger as humans recently subjected to further societal and familial isolation. Soft Animal is an acknowledgment of our vulnerable desires and explores their rootedness in the exchange of touch through more than one sense.

Soft Animal is the first perfume by GATHER to be centered around animal materials. Local and ethically sourced "musks" contribute characteristics inimitable in perfumery, giving them a long lineage of both lore and logic, as well as ubiquities efforts of imitation. In Soft Animal, tinctures of muskrat and castoreum create the anchor for an intimate experience of scent. If you're interested in meeting the local animal trapper and learning where and how these materials are sourced, please watch this video.
Future batches will vary due to materials.
This batch No. 2 consists of 320 mls. When it's gone it's gone.
** THREE of each Fur Wrapped 30ml EDP bottles will be available. These are the respective local furs of the muskrat in the perfume. These options come with no cardboard box packaging. Each fur varies.
All full size bottles come with an atomizer.
