    Hello,

    I would like to share with you my interview with perfumer Antonio Gardoni. He designed our next Zoologist perfume, Tyrannosaurus Rex (to be released in fall 2018). If you are a fan of his works, please check it out! Thank you.

    What a triple threat: Gardoni, Zoologist and Dinosaur. Can't wait to see the packaging artwork, hope it's a T.Rex in a dinner suit.

    So cool. I will definitely blind-buy this, and I never do that. Gardoni's work is spectacular - Still got a decant of Aeon 001 around here, somewhere. Need to find it and wear it again.

    How fascinating, the bit about him originally wanting T-Rex to smell of plastic toys. I really liked the smell of those kenner Jurassic Park toys from the 90's, and have wondered if anyone has thought of, or actually created a fragrance similar to it.

    Great interview!

    Awesome news; this is a release I'm genuinely interested to smell.
    All that talk of earth has me wondering if Antonio was inspired by Bat's geosmin overdose.

    I love the retro comic-book-esque art direction of that promo ad. Well done!

    Well, this is certainly a surprise and very interesting. Zoologist is always interesting and I'll definitely be sampling this when it comes out. I like most of them but the only full bottle I own is Rhinoceros (which I have found I rarely wear), although Camel and Civet are tempting me.

    It's about time we had a T-Rex fragrance. I think I've been very patient.

    T-rex note list

    Top: Bergamot, Black Pepper, Fir, Laurel Leaf, Neroli, Nutmeg

    Heart: Champaca, Geranium, Jasmine, Osmanthus, Rose, Ylang Ylang

    Base: Resins, Cade, Cedar, Civet, Frankincense, Leather, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla


    Excited to smell this!

    Edit: I wonder what resins are in the scent? Going by the note list, Styrax seems like it would be a good fit, though, I know its' use has been restricted to the point of absurdity in recent years.

    I tried this after a couple of glasses of champagne so fuzzy on this. All I remember is that it was good and reminded me a classic vintage ( again do not remember which one).

    Hmm .. not a very useful post.

    I love the artwork, especially the one with shades on. If it truly smells like a ‘classic vintage’ as epapsiou claimed I WILL be all over it.

    I placed my pre-order this morning at 5AM through LuckyScent.
    I can't wait to get my mitts on it!
    Thanks so very much, Victor!
