Civetone is a cyclic ketone and one of the oldest perfume ingredients known. It is a pheromone sourced from the African Civet. It has a strong musky odor that becomes pleasant at extreme dilutions. Civetone is closely related to muscone, the principal odiferous compound found in musk, because both compounds are macrocyclic ketones.
