Indie Canadian line Zoologist will launch Tiger, a new unisex fragrance.
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.
Like the thrill inspired by a low, rumbling growl cutting through silence, Zoologist Tiger couples danger with majesty. Vetiver’s earthy body is licked with stripes of kumquat, saffron and jasmine in an elegant pattern. Incense lurks at the edges, shrouded by smoky undertones of papyrus and ebony wood. Tiger arouses intrigue, putting those around you on high alert.
Tiger was developed by perfumer Cristiano Canali. Additional notes include cardamom and carrot seed.
Zoologist Tiger is tentatively scheduled to debut in May, in 10 or 60 ml Extrait de Parfum.

Ooooh! I need to get a BUB of Snowy Owl, and some of the original formulation of Dragonfly, if I ever found some, and I want to sniff Harvest Mouse, and now this goes on the list as well. Zoologist is doing a good job!
I’m an admirer of the line but kumquat here just sounds so weird.
Kumquats are one of my favorite citruses- I love kumquat marmalade, so I am predisposed to like anything it is mentioned in. I figure it’s just another little note of offset the heavier things.
I love kumquat everything…I just polished off a container of kumquats this week.
This sounds very intriguing!
