I know that most of you aren't fans of animal testing, but what about animal ingredients? Traditional fragrance ingredients like musk and civet are taken from musk deer and cats, respectively, and entail killing the animal. Aside from the ethics involved in killing animals like these in the first place, there's also the fact that there are lab-synthesized versions of these substances available. And yet some of the most expensive perfumes still use the real things because they're of a higher "quality." What do you think? If you were presented with a pricey fragrance you knew had one of these ingredients, would you keep it, or send it right back where it came from? And do you look for animal ingredients when you're shopping for a scent?
