Indie Canadian line Zoologist will launch Sacred Scarab, a new unisex fragrance, in July.
The dogged prospector strikes gold. Upon discovering a payload rich with nutrients, the scarab returns home. Face down, guided by the sun, it propels the tightly-packed dung backwards to a burrow lined with dusky spheres. Underground, it tunnels into the ball to deposit a precious egg. In time, the larva hatches and feeds, until it emerges, fully formed, and instinct drives it down the same dusty trail to repeat the cycle.
Like Egyptians entrusting sacred mummies to tombs for the journey to the next life, a scarab burying its treasure marks the dawn of new life. Zoologist Sacred Scarab captures the mystique of Kyphi incense, a blend of blue lotus, raisins, plums, olibanum, myrrh, and juniper. Once bound with wine and burned in ancient rituals, today this divine scent guides your spirit on a path to discovery and rebirth.
Sacred Scarab was developed by perfumer Sultan Pasha. Additional notes include aldehydes, lemon, (synthetic) civet, plum, galbanum, cedar, styrax, benzoin, oakmoss, labdanum, musk and amber.
Zoologist Sacred Scarab will available in 60 ml Extrait de Parfum. Samples can be ordered now directly from the brand, or from Etiket in Canada.
