Fragrantica - "I love it, it's green, a bit fruity, very fresh, almost aquatic. It's a bit sweet, you really catch the "bamboo" and tea leaf, as well as almost a muted frankincense. I think the longer it sits the more woody it gets, really lovely sandalwood, and something sharper like pine or cedar. I think it's extremely well composed, and as unique and interesting as rest of the Zoologist collection."
Fragrantica - "The opening is lemony cedar and sandalwood. The fragrance is just sweet wood for the first minute or so. Slowly and slowly the greens and the bamboo start to arise to meet the orange and lemon alongside the wood. Along the edges you get the waxy powdery sharpness of the Lily and mimosa, but it stays very faint. Once the smoky incense joins in at around the 15-30minute mark, this already becomes by favorite Zoologist fragrance yet."
