    Don't recall if I tried this one. Is this their latest?

    Great fragrances, and the owner of the company is a stand-up dude as well.

    I wouldn't mind trying this, but my experiences with the other three were not so positive.

    I'll see about getting a sample...

    This was released a month ago. I haven't tried it myself, but read lots of good reviews so far online, sounds like an excellent floral. Will try it in a few weeks.

    I really like the leathery Rhinoceros, but understand it's not for everyone. His creations are worth exploring.

    You can pick up a 2.5ml official sample for $10 shipped off of their website. Saw the review by Fragboy Stewie on YouTube where he named it one of the sexiest women's fragrances. It's supposed to have a ton of notes in it but it apparently opens with a blend of Apple and florals, nothing too sweet, and has a good longevity.

    I got a sample for my wife to test. I'll let you know once it arrives and we test it.

    I own and wear the first three Zoologist offerings, just received the Hummingbird sample for my wife. It is a wonderful fragrance by Shelly Waddington and we will have a full bottle soon.

    What's the point of posting something like this? Seriously, at least describe what you're pointing us towards will ya?

    Oh wait, that's right. You just posted a video review of this on your Fragboy Stewie Youtube channel, so now I guess you're trying to indirectly drive traffic to it when you send us off searching info on it...

    And you realize you're posting this in the men's forum, right?

    All things wrong with this post, I swear. It's akin to spam, imho.

    I am happy to explore, discover, and learn about perfumes. It's part of the process and adventure! So thanks, stalkerboy! I just purchased a discovery set from Zoologist and utilized the code word "lovely" for free shipping (US/Can only). Every little bit helps.

    I have no idea what you have against me mate. You bashed me by creating a separate forum talking about 'The Everyman's 2015 Guide to Uploading Fragrance Reviews on Youtube' and I never said a word. You were banned from basenotes because of all this negative gossip you're bringing into this community...just in case you did not already know it.

    I'm not trying to argue with you, but I thought basenotes was supposed to be a place where we talk about fragrances. If you think I'm promoting my reviews, then let me. If you want to promote your own fragrance reviews, then do it. No one will oppose you.

    You are a very smart critic and have a great sense of observation, and I have nothing but respect for that, but I feel bad about the fact that you're using it for all the wrong purposes. In other words, I recommend not saying things just because you can.

    Cheers!

    Glad to help! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Had my sample for over a week now. It definitely smells unique, rich, complex, and deep. There's nothing cheap about it. It's hard to nail down the notes I picked up just because of how complex it is. I picked up floral, slightest spice, slightly sweet, and some deep possibly resinous note. Overall I was impressed with just how high quality this fragrance came off. Performance was great as well, as the scent lasted a long time. Projection is as expected for an EDP.

    So is it the sexiest feminine fragrance ever? No. I don't think so. It's a very, very good fragrance and there is something in it that makes you want to keep smelling it, but I wasn't blown away by it and it wasn't world changing. If I had to give it a number, I'd probably say 8/10. Which is great. Just set your expectations apporiately. My wife's reaction was very much the same as mine. She liked it and thought it smelled good but was on the fence about getting a full bottle.

    If someone is interested in a deep, complex feminine fragrance then this is definitely worth sampling.

    Received my sample. I was hoping to fall in love with this, as I like to think of the hummingbird as my "spirit animal" -- and the label is adorable. Also, I enjoy feminine florals. But, sadly, I'm not experiencing the deep, the complex or the sexy aspect. This scent hasn't a distinctive presence for me. A pleasant but meh c+ or b-. Not full bottle-worthy... Drat. (But I'll continue to test my sample, in case I'm missing some nuance...)

    Sadly, I must agree. I purchased an entire sample pack from Zoologist and was sorely disappointed in them all, but most especially because, to my nose, each shared a strange chemical ozonic/aquatic quality which led to each one smelling identical about an hour into the wearing. This is vaguely reminiscent of the results I perceive with perfumes by Bond No.9. I sampled and re-sampled Bat, Hummingbird, Panda, Beaver, and Rhinoceros over the past two months, but fell into that old trap of "...doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results." Insanity, indeed.

    Hummingbird is not just a lovely floral, but one that lasts all day. I can't recommend this enough for fans of sweet but not foody or candied floral scents. It's just really good stuff.
