Here's what other people are saying about Hyrax...
Hyrax is everything I love in a perfume. Dry, spicy, leathery, hot and a little bit dirty. After sleeping in it there was a faint, hot, mineral scent left. Gorgeous.

Funny, I'm not getting the funky animalic fetor claimed by many for this fragrance; I'm mainly greeted by a brilliant woody-aromatic sheen, which subsides in time to reveal a kind of rubbery, "new tennis ball" industrial carpeting smell. A gentle, non-offensive musk supports it all. Not as complex, pyramid-wise as I would have hoped. If anything, it reminds me of Imaginary Authors' THE SOFT LAWN. I confess, I'm not feelin' this one...

A determined, tough nosed masculine fragrance. The contrasting notes are slightly abrasive but soft textured for a week old stubble and low toned growl of animalic musk. Smells nice. One of the best from Zoologist, imo.

This is the most animalic perfume I have ever experienced and it's just great. I think the description here is a bit misleading. There is nothing light or tamed about this perfume and any "sweet florals" are rendered obsolete by the hyraceum, which is a massive note here. This is definitely a must try for lovers of unadorned animalic perfumes. I can't find anything remotely feminine about it. I'd definitely put it on the masculine side of the spectrum.

I've tried all but three of this line and narrowed it down to three faves: Hyrax, Panda and Elephant. Hyrax is especially appealing because of its blackberry note, which I did not detect in my first try. Now it's one of the obvious openers! Hyrax is truly strange and beautiful as the notes gradually reveal themselves. Longevity is around 6-8 hours. I discovered that it also layers wonderfully with others I've tried it with, and not necessarily other Zoos. A lot of notes are listed, but they are so perfectly proportioned that they all work together without one stifling the rest. Complexity is always fascinating!

Nope. Nope nope nope. This isn't "animalic." It smells like literal feces. And in the dry down? More feces. This is a no from me.

Part of what I wrote on Fragrantica.... I am wildly in love with this gorgeous creation. The opener for me was fresh cut cedarwood, sandalwood and balsam combo. A little soft spice. A few minutes later I get the animalics - although differentiating between the three listed is beyond my ability. Whiskey, pink pepper, and a sweetness that must be the hyacinth... An hour later, there's the patchouli, amber, rose, and a scent you'll recognize if you've ever walked down a red dirt road in Africa. Heady in the sense of desire, anticipation, pursuit, even regret... Well, I'm an older woman, and I regret that my bed sheets didn't smell like this in my 30s!

Hyrax reminds me of Rien by Etat Libre D'Orange. It must be the styrax. All I know is that I get a sharp unpleasant plastic sort of muskiness. I gave my sample to a friend, who adored the scent. His chemistry tolerated the scent much better than mine. (But he loves Rien, as well, so this is just more of the same) On a man, it might be nice. But it is not for me.
