Horny beaver!
"On his long march he had two more encounters with other beavers, but these were not physical, but one admonished him from afar with insistent scent-marks to keep away, which Beaver now understood."
(From "Honey Pot: A Teddy and Beaver Novel" by Tom Meadows)

You don't necessarily set emphatic scent markers with "Beaver" by Zoologist - though again, tastes certainly differ. He begins very floral with a clear appeal to aquatic notes. I can also relate to the "air accord" at first. The fragrance seems airy-fresh.

After a relatively short time, however, it then becomes clear - yes, beaverish? Or what do you call it in the case of beaver-animalic? In any case, the certainly synthetic castoreum is very well done in my opinion. At the same time, the woody notes clearly come through. So the scent progression in "Beaver" is sort of the reverse of "Hyrax". Since it starts very animalic and later becomes floral.

Nevertheless, it becomes at this point by no means unpleasant. Because the floral-airy-aquatic notes become much weaker, but remain in the background. I find the fragrance therefore very wearable. I would rank it among my favorites from Zoologist Perfumes. I also only gave it a 10 in the rating because I find "Hyrax" even a notch better.

But again, I have to conclude with a clear Animalik warning, despite the good wearability in my opinion. Who does not like or can not tolerate, should leave the fingers of "Beaver". At first it looks like he just wants to play. But then he bites you affectionately-animalistic in the finger.

By the way, if you enjoy beautiful, profound beaver stories, I highly recommend Tom's "Honey Pot"

Embankment breach by steam iron
After the T-Rex had pinched me positively a few months ago, I have been visiting the Canadian zoo of "Zoologist" since the beginning of the week. Yesterday, the bat cave was a bit too mouldy for me (even in the apparently somewhat slowed down newer version!), today I stop at the small, acoustically green beaver enclosure.

It is full of idyllic brook branches, filled with impressive buildings and dams made of the brightest woods. I guess that's what beavers call interior decorating... In contrast to "Bat", "Beaver" (2016) is a very wearable, cozy scent. Linen sweater, steam ironing, clean skin. Minimal aquatic and woody, brown-green, but basically a white-grey, transparent-heavy (I know, it doesn't make sense) musk scent. For Sunday afternoons on the couch, for background spraying, for best man and godfather, for not-too-fatal days. An enclosure in which to live and above all to feel good. A concept fragrance done right and light.

Flacon: beaver-hot!
Sillage: cabinet dry
Durability: 7-continuous quality work

Conclusion: an airy, musky scent - who would have thought that beavers smell so pleasant and cuddly and human (!). ;)

A short breath of natural freshness
My second zoologist scent test: Beaver

After the rhinoceros failed me because it revealed its true interest veil too late, here is the experiment with the beaver:

It begins with a natural, green freshness, which is also slightly spicy. A very pleasant opening that not many fragrances can boast. Especially not the fresh scents. It is not pungent, not citric, not synthetic, not fruity. I only know this from very few fresh scents. An example from a very different price segment is here for example Ironstone from La Rive ...

After half an hour it becomes rather aquatic-fresh. Still very natural and pleasant, but with a rather weak silage.

Even after the first hour the same impression.

Unfortunately it is, at least on MY skin, after about three hours already hardly warmable (I walk with my nose over the forearm and look for the beaver... ).

My conclusion:

A beautiful natural fresh scent! But you have to apply a relatively large amount to compensate for the weak silage. And then it disappears again very early. Both at this price rather unfavourable!

Too bad, the opening was very promising.

If I wore it naked, I would still feel perfectly dressed with Beaver
Beaver in its new formulation is undoubtedly the most pleasing, calmest and last but not least - by definition - "most beautiful" zoologist scent for me.

To explain what I mean: Tyrannosaurus Rex, for example, is still unbeaten by me and I feel it is also "beautiful" - but it is probably far away from what one would call - by definition of the word - "beautiful fragrance". Beaver comes much closer to the "beautiful".

Beaver brings with the first spray the imagination of a spring morning at a brook, the lukewarm wind touches through hair and face and carries a breath of serious flower aromas in itself. Wood shavings from cut trees lie around and it makes a quiet "splash" as the small, furry thing enters the otherwise still standing water. The water lilies swivel back and forth and water drops collect on their leaves. Ah...a very slight animal smell is also hidden in the wind at the brook in question.
Not dirty and unpleasant - rather familiar, warm and wonderfully natural looking.
Also a bit like the smell of laundry almost dried by the wind on a huge meadow, beside which a small brook flows. The laundry is white as a sheet.
I have just deliberately talked about "almost" dried laundry (and of course the stream that keeps returning from now on), because the wind that blows in Beaver is damp. Not rain-moist and also not cool-moist. More like a hint of. Imagine being on such a stream and (to keep the name of the fragrance) a beaver jumping into the water, which distributes a few sprinklers in the air. The odour that you then perceive for a fraction of a second because the gentle wind carries it past you. Something like that I mean and apologize for my this time actually methapherengwängwängerte description.
The fact that I have so far been committed to paraphrases and metaphors shows me that it is difficult to describe or even classify Beaver.

Yes, Beaver is a fragrance, a perfume and also does justice to these accusations. Beaver, however, is also a feeling, a perception and lives from the images and associations that this, I call it, intentionally 'smell' brings with it.

It smells like: not quite clear, but not dirty water, like a small stream or pond. Gently after flowers that are not playful but serious. Serious but beautiful - and very beautifully discreetly dosed. I think it's the lime blossom that stands out here. For wood, actually something after the sawdust from Daddy's workshop. The dry one and the slightly damp one. After a fresh breeze, whose worn fragments of fragrance repeatedly evoke the Bächlein association. And also after nature and animal - however (for all, which turn up now the nose) also the dezent to minimum dosed. Beaver Welten is far removed from dirty animalism or even fecal animalism. Also from the animalism of the other zoologists. So if you are afraid of this point, or think of Civet or Hyrax, or of fragrances like Stercus or Fortis, you might say that this is not the case with Beaver. The animal note in Beaver is so tame and gentle that you could/would like to cuddle with it.
The same goes for the fact that I would describe Beaver as a rather fresh fragrance. But fresh here means anything but sporty, aquatic, citric or anything else you would associate with fresh fragrances in the perfume world. Also here I rather mean the natural freshness of water sprinkled wind.

Beaver has an almost meditative effect in its calm and early summer sluggishness.
As a city person a good scent to lie down in the grass in the park and let the head cinema do the rest. Bumms, you're at the Bieberbächlein.

To arrange everything again towards the end and get it round:
A fragrance that belongs more to the skin than to the clothes and that makes a much more interesting development on the skin.
A fragrance that is more of a nude fragrance than a fragrance bomb.
A fragrance that you don't spray on and wear; it melts with the skin of the wearer.
A fragrance that radiates serenity, nature and tame animalism.
And naturalness - a genuine and attractive naturalness. Even if I would wear it naked, I would still feel perfectly dressed with Beaver.
An absolute unisex fragrance.
Supplement:
After I wrote this comment and read it again, there was actually only one consequence left, namely that I had to change my rating (which I gave a few months ago) afterwards. Up.

Fresh wet wood
I was not expecting this to be so scenic in its opening—like a crisp spring morning on a river bank. I get cool rushing water with surrounding floral vegetation, balanced by wet green wood and smoky leather. It reminds me of something like Dior Fahrenheit in its juxtaposition of pretty and rugged notes—ultimately a clever and supremely wearable composition.

Underrated
I think Beaver slid under the radar because of huge, bombastic scents like Civet and the new T-Rex that get so much attention. Beaver is a tenderly sweet, springy green, delicate floral fragrance with a slightly animalic undertone that makes it feel really realistic. Gives it that musky quality that feels like a second skin. Smells like you took a shower with some high quality soap that is still clinging to your skin, then you leave your little cottage to go and dip your toes in a chilly brook in the English countryside. Darling fragrance, but it's complex too. Highly underrated.

A fresh and clean green-aquatic Spring fragrance, supported by a barely noticable animalic-woody base. 100% unisex. Very soft, yet unique!
