Zoologist Dodo was created by Joseph DeLapp and launched in 2019. This isn't a really oakmossy fougere, it has a fruitiness with the fern notes. So green overlaid with fruit and flower, jungle'ish without being thick.
It is a gorgeous fougere fragrance featuring notes of fern, lime, lychee, raspberry, ambergris, fir balsam, geranium, rose, amber, musk, oakmoss, patchouli and sandalwood. Dodo is an eau de parfum, edp.
From Colognoisseur - "Dodo opens in a tropical jungle redolent of green foliage and exotic fruits of lychee, lime, and raspberry. Perfumer Joseph DeLapp deftly chaperones the three fruity ingredients allowing them to create a humid tropical jungle accord. This transitions into a floral heart accord of rose over ambergris and fir. The fir deepens the foliage effect from the top accord into something more pine-like. This is where Dodo becomes most like an attar. Rose is a classic attar ingredient and the one used here has all the rich quality of an attar rose. Mr. DeLapp uses the ambergris as the supporting ingredient to lift that rose up. The base accord continues the slowly intensifying green with oakmoss anchoring it with its noir-ish quality. Mr. DeLapp threads through a lightly animalic musk, patchouli, and amber to complete the tropical jungle milieu."
From Basenotes - "Complex, almost mysterious in its cacophony of notes: it's so well blended I hope this never goes extinct."
From The Sniff - "Like the rest of their line, Zoologist have managed to make Dodo really quite interesting. The fragrance feels well blended and the dry down in particular is appealing, with a clean, brightness throughout. It’s masculine-leaning, and we can imagine it having a wide appeal, nigh on flying off the shelves (if Dodos could fly)."
From Nose Dives - "But as we venture into its heart, the real character of Dodo reveals itself. There’s no trace of the opening and in its place is a a big salty blast of sea breeze. There’s something slightly astringent paired with a defined milk note – not unpleasant, but animalic. But mainly it’s a big, sharp sandalwood, flanked by firs and ferns. Somewhere, off in the distance, I can place the rose geranium. It’s definitely weird. Maybe wonderful."
