    Default What makes T-Rex by Zoologist so Smokey?

    I’m trying to compare Hyde by Hiram Green and T-Rex by Zoologist, since both are gigantic smoke grenade.

    Hyde use loads of birch tar, but what does T-Rex use for its Smokey effect? It smells kind of metallic and even garlicky sometimes. Is it a mutant birch tar?

    Doctors thought I’d been hit by a Mack truck, I said nope, just sniffed some T. rex with a chaser of Hyde

    I guess I’m in luck that I callled my emergency contact before I sniffed these. They’re supposed to call 911 if I don’t call back in 15 MiN.

    They’re really pissed since I did the same thing when I tried Kouros or Koublai Khan, but it’s worth it.

    T-Rex is a way better fragrance than Hyde, but I guess I can see why they're often mentioned together.

    I think the smokiest I’ve tried before those is A City on Fire. And I think it’s potentially FB worthy for me.

    I haven't tried Hyde, but in T-Rex it's largely the cade to my nose.

    Though, I don't find T-Rex to be particularly smoky (compared to stuff like Interlude Man). Or maybe the ~ 1 ml sample I applied isn't enough.

    Edit: I'm getting a plastic/hospital/medicinal accord in the opening phases which reminds me of Fumoir - another contender for your smoke fix.

    Looking for some smoke? Bois d'Ascese. I haven't smelled T-Rex yet...but I did pull a sample at the Basenotes meetup in Chicago a few weeks ago. Looking at the notes though I'd guess cade and/or birch tar.

    Yeah, T-Rex is nowhere near as smoky as Bois d'Ascese.

    I adore cade in fragrance. It’s why I fell in love with Timbuktu by L’Artisan.
