Canadian indie line Zoologist will launch two new fragrances, Moth and Hyrax.
Moth (shown) ~ "At first encounter, the rich, gothic scent of Zoologist Moth may surprise but soon it hypnotizes. A heavy dose of dark spices jolts your senses before settling into a dusting of honey-sweet rose and powdery florals. Slowly, it tests its wings, taking flight on an exotic journey of nagarmotha, guaiac wood and patchouli. Beneath it all lingers a smoky undertone that serves as a constant reminder of the danger within the tantalizing flame." Moth was developed by perfumer Tomoo Inaba, who was also responsible for the brand's Nightingale. Additional notes include cinnamon, cloves, cumin, lemon, nutmeg, pepper, saffron, heliotrope, iris, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, mimosa, ambergris, musk, oud and vetiver.
Hyrax ~ "At the heart of Zoologist Hyrax is a daring, seldom-used ingredient in the art of perfumery –– African stone, or hyraceum, giving this bold animalic scent its distinctive signature. This unique perfume skillfully blends saffron, pink pepper, whiskey, rose and musks to invoke an abstract image of a dusty African mountainscape. Like the nimble hyraxes that spill from hillside crevices in search of the sun upon their musky hides, this scent will weave its way into your senses with a light but primal touch." Hyrax was developed by perfumer Sven Pritzkoleit of SP Parfums. Additional notes include elemi, hyacinth, styrax, amber, benzoin, castoreum, civet, patchouli, sandalwood and tonka bean.
Zoologist Moth will debut in May, followed by Hyrax in June. Both will be available in 11 or 60 ml.
