Moth and Hyrax are latest additions to Zoologist's perfumed menagerie

Zoologist Perfumes are adding two new fragrances to their collection this summer - Moth and Hyrax.

Created by perfumer Tomoo Inaba, Moth ‘… may surprise but soon it hypnotizes. A heavy dose of dark spices jolts your senses before settling into a dusting of honey-sweet rose and powdery florals. Slowly, it tests its wings, taking flight on an exotic journey of nagarmotha, guaiac wood and patchouli. Beneath it all lingers a smoky undertone that serves as a constant reminder of the danger within the tantalizing flame.’

Hyrax is the creation of Sven Pritzkoleit. At the heart of this fragrance is ‘…a daring, seldom-used ingredient in the art of perfumery - African stone, or hyraceum, giving this bold animalic scent its distinctive signature. This unique perfume skillfully blends saffron, pink pepper, whiskey, rose and musks to invoke an abstract image of a dusty African mountainscape. Like the nimble hyraxes that spill from hillside crevices in search of the sun upon their musky hides, this scent will weave its way into your senses with a light but primal touch.’

Moth will be available on May 4th and Hyrax the following month. Both will be available in Zoologist Perfumes’ Deluxe Bottle size and smaller travel spray, via Zoologist Perfumes and
