Zoologist Tyrannosaurus Rex Reviews

From Kafkaesque - "Tyrannosaurus Rex has made me realize that I really love Mr. Gardoni’s drydowns, but this one is even more scrumptious than usual even if, again, I can’t always sniff it up close without a headache. But, if I could, I would stick my nose in my arm for hours on end without cease because it is absolutely perfect for a chilly autumn or winter night. In fact, Holy Moly, it’s as snuggalicious as your favourite worn sweater or winter throw, thanks to the Gardoni base: a molten river of amber smelling just like caramel; an equally thick, rich river of delightfully buttered, smoky, spicy sandalwood running along side it; a lavish heaping of spices which smell like cinnamon wood bark mixed in with a decent handful of bitter, fragrant nutmeg; a pinch of creamy vanilla which resembles crème anglaise; and tiny, unexpected, ghostly pops of aromas which I can only describe as mocha and butterscotch on my skin, the latter no doubt stemming from the buttery sandalwood. All traces of anything floral, aromatic, herbal, harsh, medicinal, rubbery, or desiccated, or leathery have vanished."

From Basenotes - "There is a definite Russian Leather aspect and the smoky cade oil is clearly perceptible, but the fragrance is full bodied and clean smelling. In fact it is not so much a scent as a total sensation, as it enters your nose like a predator in search of a prey. All it finds in my case is some very appreciative olfactory receptors, signalling a positive experience to my humble human brain. Definitely a fragrance which has grown on me and one which should stand the test of time."

From Basenotes - "The base reveals more of that leather - old, cracked leather. Smoldering resins, cedarwood, sandalwood, animal note - all here. A somewhat gothic, dark-style incense. Leather stays for hours as does some boozy sweet stuff. What a ride! Gotta get me more." 

Fragrantica - "Beautiful. And yet - surprising? I’ve been involved with perfume for decades now; I didn’t think it was possible that anything would genuinely startle me. But the combination here of cool plant and hot fire, mossy wetness and rock dry, seems genuinely new. It’s gorgeous and rich - there’s a lot going on."

Fragrantica - "On first acquaintance with this, I have to say it feels like a total car-crash. A bit of everything thrown into the kitchen sink - blood accord, metallic urine, used ashtray, bubblegum, sickly florals, car freshener etc. Do I think it works? No - a horror story of a fragrance. Actually, it is now starting to grow on me!"

 

An excerpt From Zoologist

A sultry heat wafts across the land, lapped up greedily by the abundant flora that thrives in its midst. Trees soar to majestic heights and plants flower for the first time, their petals spreading to give birth to a world rich in diversity. The Cretaceous period comes of age against a backdrop scorched by wildfire and lightning strikes. Over this turbulent landscape, a massive predator looms. Giants rule the earth, but even giants can be cut down within the powerful jaws of the fearsome tyrannosaur. Standing tall, the terrifying beast fears nothing, until that pivotal moment when a fire in the sky signals the end of their deadly reign.

 Zoologist Tyrannosaurus Rex is a gargantuan scent that sinks its teeth into the world of delicate fragrances and rips it wide open. Primitive woods and florals seize you and snatch you away to an ancient era. Smoky, charred wood warns of the danger of smouldering fire, setting your senses on edge, while droplets of metallic rose oxide offer a chilling premonition of blood-lust. The mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex is sometimes menacing, sometimes fascinating, but never, ever ordinary.

    Unexpected nostalgia

    I was not prepared for how familiar this fragrance would feel. It’s dominated by cade oil, which happens to be very present in the Lush shampoo bar Soak and Float. It’s impossible to forget that health food store arson smell! So instead of being carried back to the Jurassic, I was carried back to my days as a wannabe luxe hippie with scalp concerns. I also picked up some fir notes, then some rubber. Eventually it devolved into something more common (bergamot?) at which point I scrubbed it off.

    A brilliant beast, but too much for me

    This fragrance is a beast, literally. It overtakes your nose, all your senses. The first word that came out of my mouth when I smelled it was "Whoa!" Then I said, "What a beastll!" This is a heavy, in your face scent. There is something about it that reeks of 'predator.' I appreciate its quality and artistry, but I could never wear this T. Rex. He's a killer, literally.
