About Dragonfly

Like a glade captured in delicate strokes upon an impressionist canvas, the rich, green floral medley of Zoologist Dragonfly transports you through a maze of moody tones and melancholy weather. This olfactory journey echoes the cycle of a cobalt pond, from the crackling light of dawn to the thick blanket of nightfall, under the gaze of the flitting dragonfly.

Dragonfly fragrance notes

Reviews of Dragonfly

I knew this was going to be good before I tried it, having read Darvant's review. Damn, I wish could write like that!
This scent is so very poetically Feminine, brilliantly watercoloured and orchestrated to a sweet powdery thing.
Just when I feel it will become saturated and border cloying dry sweetness, a dab of Aquatic, Watermelon, Calonic draws it back to some moisture.
This Calonic is something that few noses can handle with finesse. ex. O'Driu Ta
While it is an enjoyable ride on my skin, it seems a little too pretty for my Masculine daily wear.
Gosh though, on a woman, with it's lack of Ambroxinized bluster, what a gorgeous thing!

I only had a tiny bit to try. I felt compelled to write about it anyway. Dragonfly is so delicate, serene, magical even. It actually reminds me of a fresh rain. Beautiful blossoms sprinkled with raindrops. Warm sun. A fresh breeze. A very well-composed fragrance. A watercolor painting of delight.

Will have to procure another sample or decant to experience this again.

Procured a travel spray for more testing. It is just as beautiful as first sniffed!

A further Zoologist's well crafted olfactory twist. Freehearted and almost oneiric feminine ambery-musky fragrance. A credible synth accord with a radiant brightness. Dragonfly ideally conjugates a typical Andrea Maack's aldehydic combination of papyrus, greens, musky/mineral amber, medicinal lime, white powder and dry flowers with an equally "futuristic" accord of aqueous pond-like florals (lotus, peony, lilac) and synth muskiness a la Ex Nihilo Fleur Narcotique or Chinatown Bond No. 9. A froozen in time translucent white-green atmosphere. There is all around a dominant medicinal/tart floral muskiness with a sort of mineral/vaguely ozonic spark. Heliotrope and amber slightly tame (along the journey) the dominant lemony/leafy floral tartness but the aroma is all about aldehydes, tart berrish fruits, humid/lymphatic/leafy florals, pharmaceutical lime, secret minerals and aroma chemical green muskiness. Dry down is softer, diaphanous, vaguely talky/poudree and super sophisticated. Ancestral kind of ostensibly vegetal fragrance. The Dragonfly's idea of woman is ethereal and elusive, a "presence" from a sort of muffled and candid/naive untouchable world of innocence, silk and white dreams. Welcome to the ancestral universe of innocence.

Outstanding. Minerals and flowers. I think the concept is dead on, it evokes the image of dragonflies landing on a lotus pond. Wish the opening lasted longer. Wow.

It opens with a mixture of heliotrope and aldehydes that is creamy and not overly floral. I believe the nose was trying to recreate a boggy environment typical of this insect. There are a combination of notes that hint at the beach, marine, hot, and breezy. Vanilla isn't listed, but I suspect there is a tiny bit to round out the edges of the opening notes. They always include mysterious "notes" that hint at the animal like "rainwater" and "Rice" I think the rice note is the semi-sweet that I smell. The middle notes are warmer, and creamy, losing some of the heliotrope in favor of the lotus and cherry blossom. This fragrance sits fairly close to the skin in a house where the other juices fairly leap off your body. With a name like Dragonfly, you might think that it is a summer frag, but this could be worn all year round. I'm impressed with the complexity and how each of the Zoologist fragrances evolve on the skin, even the ones that don't appeal to my tastes.
