Very helpful Review
Dromedary or camel, it doesn't matter, I want to ride it!
Who of us can not also report of it, one would like to try out with pleasure times the brand Zoologist, however, has doubts before Animalik and to intensive notes which cry quasi "In your face! As often also with other perfume users before and after me this thought must have swung along. Luckily for all of us there is the very beginner-friendly and portable Camel from Zoologist. One that should slowly and friendly build up and present the feel of the camel. He really deserves this place, because I have also moved on to the other scents via Camel and have tested two other scents so far, Bat 2020 and Civet.
In retrospect, Camel can really be considered one of the more ordinary fragrances in the series, as it doesn't overwhelm its wearer and wants to show how wearable zoologist perfumes really are. But even in 100% case this is only true for Camel (referring to the general public), because already Bat 2020 and Civet lose some of their suitability for everyday use due to their certain animalism. This doesn't bother me as I'm relatively painless in this respect, but Camel can be called a beginner's fragrance.
Camel lives up to his description of a desert ship. The brand's perfumers have an incredible sense of how to give each animal an authentic and almost frighteningly real scent.
It starts on my skin with a mixture of dry accents, lots of smoky wood and a subtle sweetness. Here, incense, oud and dried fruit probably play a pleasant fragrance bouquet, which is already familiar. Memories of Au Coeur du Desert and Jubilation XXV come back. In the course of the fragrance, different constellations alternate, which does not make the scent seem boring. One moment the smoky notes rise a bit, the next moment it's sweet moments of tonka and dried fruit. Everything is interspersed with dry perceptions, which are always present.
If one would like to imagine Camel figuratively, then it is like a day trip to the Sahara. A ride on the desert ship, which starts in the morning with pleasant temperatures. The further the trip into the desert goes and the hours pass by, the warmer and drier the air gets, while the sandy winds whip at you. The cloths used as face protection have not been washed for a long time and have a smoky, musty aroma. The day slowly comes to an end and the tents are pitched by the Bedouin guides. A campfire burns and everyone gathers for an exchange at the warming embers. In the evening the locals serve dates and dried fruit, while in the background the camels are being looked after after after the exhausting journey. What a great day with these unfamiliar smells - an olfactory journey.
As I am used to from zoologists by now, durability and sillage are at the top end of the scale. Everything shows itself from the best side and makes no prisoners. Either you like the scent or you stay out of my way. Unusual to carry a cloud full of desert in the rather pleasant temperature of Western Europe. This can also be heard on my skin for over ten hours, which is why the price-performance ratio is extraordinarily good.
Start your journey through the world of zoology with this fragrance or treat yourself to one of the best imitations of the distant oriental desert, you won't regret it. I'll ride around for a while.
