An excerpt From Zoologist
"Branches lay bare against a grey sky. The gaiety of summer has given way to doldrums of fall, and as winter settles in, flocks take flight, like guests from a dwindling party. But one pair of revellers lingers on, he in crimson finery, she in demure tones. Among tattered streamers of copper leaves, they warble a merry duet. Around the cardinals' nest, tinsel icicles may have replaced vibrant blooms of roses, but as they feast on scarlet berries that dot the snowy landscape, this feathered brood's festive spirit refuses to be chilled.
Zoologist Cardinal combines the invigorating scents of bergamot, rose and rich hints of leather. Tart green notes entwine with handsome undertones to encircle you in a subtle wreath of fragrance. Cloak yourself in this warm, cheerful perfume, a spark of joy on a bleak winter day."
Zoologist Cardinal is an extrait de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica - "What a good perfume
Chypre Green with a little bit hint of Fruity.
Leathery Chypre but so green so fresh
Sound like little bird eating a fruit in the forest. Remind me FM Synthetic Jungle in wearable green dose"
Fragrantica - "This is a very lovely green leather scent but whereas some of the other green leather scents I've tried have been twangy and sharp, this one is a bit more rounded and dark thanks to the patchouli and oak moss, but still retains a bit of a fresh sort of feel. Very natural smelling and serene - there is no offputting dissonance between any of the notes. There is something almost bordering on chocolate that I catch a faint suggestion of. This is beautiful 9/10."
Fragrantica - "The cousin of Quorum.
Green and Leathery Chypre.
Refreshing and cozy.
In my Zoologist top five.
