The perfumer notes for Zoologist Tiger -
"The frail glow of the waning moon dwindles until only impenetrable blackness persists across the grasslands. A herd of deer venture tentatively into the expanse. Though their long necks dip to feed, their dainty legs remain tense, poised to flee. Nearby, gleaming gold eyes pierce the gloom, and silky ears stiffen, attuned to the softest tremor. The tiger advances haltingly, intent on its prey, anticipating a moment of vulnerability. In a seamless motion, it leaps and descends upon its victim, its razor-sharp fangs sinking deep into the deer’s throat. As the deer’s life fades, its herd is already gone, evaporating into the night."
It is an extrait de parfum at 20% concentration.

Reviews of Zoologist Tiger

Fragrantica - "This immediately reminded me of an old favourite - Timbuktu by L’Artisan, in fact the note lists are nearly identical. The kumquat is a bit less tart than the mango which gives it a slightly darker feel overall. This is a sweet tropical fruity vetiver fragrance; smoky and spicy, but not heavy or cloying. Might be too much for some in high heat, but could be quite seductive in the cool of night. As it dries it darkens, so it feels like a sunset. The incense is not the churchy sort but there’s a good dose of it, and there’s earthy smoky vetiver behind it all. If there are any signature animalics they are quite dialled back, perhaps a touch of civet. This is an abstract take on the tiger - it’s orange and a bit slinky and mysterious, no cute pussycat here. There is a really warm fuzzy saffron note and happily more smoke than expected, which gives the vetiver a unique sheen. I would say this was redundant if you have Timbuktu but that has been reformulated into a ghost - this cat hasn’t be neutered - so I’m happy to have a replacement. This may actually be better. Update; This actually reminds me a lot more of Chanel’s Sycamore in the dry down. I’m currently debating between the two."

Fragrantica - "t’s Shere Khan sipping on a top shelf margarita rimmed with smoked sea salt while steel drums beat in the background and fireflies dance about the thick jungle air. It has a presence, but it’s not dominating. It’s a Tiger stalking, not pouncing."

Fragrantica - "I can see the comparisons to dry grass, though I would personally describe the scent as "candied vetiver". The vetiver note is indeed very dry and not at all soapy and fresh like you'd smell in a Guerlain or Tom Ford. There was a hint of candied sweetness that accompanies the dryness that made for a very enjoyable olfactive experience."
