From Cafleurbon: "To my nose, Zoologist Moth is a perfume which improves over time as it is worn. It’s perfectly delightful at the onset, flushed with the glow of myriad spices seasoned with saffroned lemon. Its heart notes resemble a Victorian love letter, awash with sweetness initiated by heliotrope, jasmine, mimosa and muguet and segued by resins and honey. What may appear as aromatic overkill at first glance serves its nectarous purpose gallantly: simmering spice and abundant florals are essential in balancing that benevolent flame to which our moth is so poignantly drawn."
From Basenotes - "Gothic is Zoologist’s claim for this fragrance and gothic it sure is. Dark, heavy, and with an intensity of feeling expressed by its honeyed florals that may not be for everyone. The opening is one of those ‘wait for it to settle’ affairs – discordant, and if one were to identify a main theme, it would be smelling mainly of a petroleum oud. But soon enough it begins to relax and a rich, embellished floral begins to open its wings, quite animalic what with the beeswax languor of honey and the funk of the oud, but also with a sweaty dab of cumin lurking in its depths."
