Indie Canadian line Zoologist will launch Chipmunk, a new unisex fragrance, later this month.
The lush green of the treetops fades to a dull gold. What seems a peaceful transition actually raises a blaring alarm to the creatures below. Time is running out. But for generations, mighty oaks have fulfilled a promise to provide, and leaves are not the only bounty tumbling to the forest floor. Chipmunks scurry among the detritus in their quest to collect the plumpest acorns. They eagerly gather what they can and, cheeks bulging with nuts, scamper home to line their snug burrows before falling leaves give way to biting snow.
Zoologist Chipmunk captures an autumn forest bursting with ripe nuts. Juicy quince, dusted with cardamom and nutmeg, dangles tantalizingly among naturalistic woods and green, milky kernels. Chipmunk invites you up into the branches, offering a dazzling vantage point from which to enjoy the rich golden and russet hues of the changing seasons.
Chipmunk was developed by perfumer Pia Long. Additional notes include pink pepper, red mandarin, camomile, hazelnut, fir balsam, oak, earthy notes, cedar, amyris, patchouli, vetiver, benzoin, opoponax, guaiacwood and (synthetic) animal notes.
Zoologist Chipmunk is available for pre-order now at Luckyscent, $165 for 60 ml Extrait de Parfum. (It will also be sold in a 10 ml travel spray.)
