Zoologist seems to be a rather polarizing brand when browsing the comments and statements. The scents are all experimental, conceptual and yes, I go so far as to say that the zoologist-scents are all art. Whether loved, hated, wearable or unwearable, everyone ultimately decides for themselves and their sense of smell.
Since I - although I am a great advocate of the zoologist-line and leave the house with "strange" scents - can only tolerate Zibet in moderation or skilfully played around, I immediately start with a description, which could also have been at the end of the commentary: portable Animalik.
The prelude brings with it a whole load of animal fur association. However, it is neither faecal nor dirty or even mark "wet dog". Warm, almost cuddly, that's more like it.
I don't know exactly what that association evokes. But the interplay of smoke, fruit and spices does, in fact, immediately ignite the head cinema of far desert and dust-dry heat, of bazaars with incense, spices and all kinds of delicacies. And actually also from camel(fell). Floral chords floating in the background.
In the later course and excellently embedded now Zibet and musk come on my skin more strongly to carry. As already indicated, Zibet is such a thing, which I can find only in few cases well. In Camel, however, Zibet does not become the sound announcer, who now takes out the faecal-animalic club but is more or less an observer. Woven with spices and garnished with dried fruits, the "pissy cat" purrs in the most cuddly tones. I can even go so far as to say that I have never felt Zibet to be so well embedded, which is also due to the extremely pleasant oud, the buttery soft amber and the sandalwood, which all shine out again and again.
I also feel that Camel is one of the most "mass compatible" zoologist scents.
Camel is a perfectly coordinated fragrance. An oriental scent that skilfully plays off its extravagance, which cannot be discussed away. A fragrance that lives up to its name and the concept behind it. A fragrance that will undoubtedly polarize as much as its brothers and sisters. A scent, which stands out for me personally pleasantly and nevertheless no "precinct marker" wants to be.
smoky and creamy at the same time.
Small warning at the end: Sillage and durability are absolutely not to be underestimated!
