Zoologist Panda is an elegant green perfume, and this is the 2017 update by Christain Carbonnel. A fruity green earthy open followed by a lovely vanilla/civet/musk skin scent.
Panda has notes of apple, magnolia, mandarin, lily, osmanthus, ozone, tea, amber, earthy notes, jasmine, orris, patchouli, civet, musk, sandalwood and vanilla (*denotes a synthetic note).
Panda is described: "... fresh green fragrance that combines the delightful scents of bamboo and zisu leaves to send you on an unforgettable aromatic adventure. Your journey begins at a quaint Sichuan pepper farm surrounded by mountain streams and then leads you through a forest of osmanthus flowers as you finally make your way into a cozy garden filled with juicy mandarin trees and blooming lilies. Panda is a scent ensemble that will truly awaken and rejuvenate your senses.."
Panda is an extrait de parfum.
From Ventvenir - "Panda by Zoologist Perfumes is very pleasant, joyful and playful perfume. It is the perfume of contrasts, where the freshness of fruits, meets the tenderness of flowers, where the humidity of earthy notes meets the warmth of amber."
From Basenotes - "Panda (2017) is absolutely delightful. The first time I sprayed this I actually burst into laughter. This is a playful scent without being immature. I mainly get notes of an iced fruit tea with a singeing ozonic almost alcohol smell. I get 14 hours as a skin scent and the sillage last for a good part of that. I could see this being almost sickly and overpowering if you were to spray it on your chest rather than your nape. Great scent. Great performance. Crowd pleasing. Definitely purchased a full bottle."
From Reddit - "It reminds me of biology, but much more pleasant; more happily catching tadpoles with classmates than coming back after Thanksgiving break to find that your Ph.D Animal Behavior teacher is a high school teacher for a reason (seriously, he could have at least read up about it on the internet before killing like three quarters of them by accident.)"
From Makeup Alley - "Panda, at first, is similar to Elephant with a prominent magnolia note with musky undertones, but this one is immediately balanced by the intricate intermingling of complimentary floral notes, giving the impression that the wearer is confident in her femininity and always ready for challenge. The scent is warm and inviting, tickles the nose with notes that are almost lyrical. Although floral in composition, this scent is not something for everyday wear, for the faint of heart, or those who need encouragement. This scent is all woman to be worn by someone who dares to push the glass ceilings with the fierceness of her innate femininity, choosing her prowess over boring intellectualism or straight-forward aggression."
