The bee may fly on with pleasure
A good one and a half years ago, when I first registered here, I didn't even know the scents from the zoologist. My scent horizon was still very limited and I had picked up the term niche by the way. But once you are entangled here in the big, tightly woven net, you are hopelessly lost and sometimes the most unbelievable scents come to your nose.
Some you run away screaming and others conjure up a blissful mood.

The Canadian brand Zoologist based in Toronto is still relatively young, it was only founded in 2013 by Victor Wong.
The aim is to capture and express the peculiarities of all kinds of animals, on water, on land or in the air, living or extinct, through the scents. Be these peculiarities beautiful, funny or even shocking, all this is reflected very well in the really extraordinary creations.
I have already tested some fragrances and can confirm that they are really anything but commonplace. However, they have not caused the greatest enthusiasm in me so far.
It failed in the first place because of the wearability of the fragrances. And that is an important criterion for me What good is a high-quality and well-crafted fragrance if I can't find an opportunity to wear it or if I don't feel comfortable with the fragrance? Prices and the more or less complicated procurement options also play a role that should not be underestimated. But I do not want to go into that now.

Now recently Bee came to me, the very latest creation from the house of Zoologist. The name already suggested a rather sweet scent with honey as main note, without me having had a look at the pyramid of scents before.
But Bee is not just honey sweet, there are other notes, because simply and simply there is no such thing as a zoologist.

I read here about an association with forest honey. I can also confirm this. Forest honey is now the type of honey that I like least, as it is too bitter and tart. Goes at most times in the tea.
The honey note is present from the beginning and is also very sweet. However, the sweetness becomes harsher and darker relatively quickly, as spicy and resinous notes are quickly introduced and the sweetness is dampened a little. Then the smell reminds me very much of forest honey Floral notes remain in the background and do not play a particularly important role during the whole process. They seem to me more like pollen, because Bee also seems very dry to me.
In addition, the honey seems to be provided with plenty of beeswax.
The spicy notes give me a little bit the impression of an oriental or hippie shop with all kinds of incense sticks and scented oils, even if this impression is not very strong. That cushions the sweetness a little bit additionally.
The fragrance then also sounds resinous and spicy. Above all, there is a distinct warmth, which is why I see the fragrance best in the cold season. In summer this could be too luxuriant.
The shelf life is excellent, 10 hours are easily in it. And Bee should be dosed as sparingly as possible, it is very dense and takes up a lot of space. One sprayer is already more than sufficient for me.
And that is unfortunately also the point that leads to the fact that Bee is not a candidate for purchase for me. As great as the fragrance is made and as much as I appreciate the concept, I'm afraid the bee would get on my nerves within a short time. I miss a certain lightness in the fragrance. It is lush, heavy and concentrated, thick almost enough to cut. And the bee resembles for me rather a quite thick bumblebee.
All in all, Bee is a really very well composed scent and I guess it is one of the most accessible scents of zoologist, but the great bliss did not come to me, even though I did not have to run away screaming from the scent.
To all those who think Bee is great, of course I wish them a lot of joy with the fragrance!
I like to let the bee fly on.

My thanks go to Pollita, who made the first encounter with the bee possible for me, and to Jakobolino, through him I could deepen the acquaintance a little more.

Let's see what other zoologists have to tell me on occasion.

My weakness for insects
Since I can think, insects have fascinated me.
The splendour of colours of rose beetles, the movement of a scolopender, the elegance of a moths flapping their wings at dusk...

Zoologist had already wrapped me around his finger with his first and so far only insect.
But where the lovely moth with her beautiful flapping wings spreads smoke paired with dark honey and untrained perfume noses teach fear...
( Close to my father, mother and sister I will not wear it anymore, they were simply too overwhelmed and pushed to the brink of pain
Bee's going a whole different way.

Bee is not a wasp from which people flee for fear of being stung.
Bee rather fascinates you, makes you cheerful and distributes her pollen around.
"Friendly, elegant, tender and yet decisive."
The honey envelops a...
However, honey is not as sweet as cotton candy, it has a light sweet that is woven with flowers.
He flatters the nose, animalism does not appear for me at any moment of the course of the fragrance.
In return, the scent plays with the honey and the flowers again and again. From moment to moment the flowers alternate with the honey.
In one moment the honey rules and the blossoms only give a flatterer to the honey, in the next moment the honey dunked bee dips into the blossoms, rises up and lets the blossoms rain with a flap of a wing.
Bee doesn't threaten anyone.
Nobody wrinkles their nose... Although the Sillage and durability Zoologist is typically strong and you can see yourself again and again .
On the contrary, it makes people feel comfortable.
She sits down on male and female, nobody will feel inappropriate The queen bee from the bottle does her real representatives every credit.

Thus the bee moves in as a friendly sister to her dark brother Motte in our house and my insect weakness increases now also on the perfume world.

Let's see which insect is next to move into Mister Wong's wildlife. :)

In this SInne " Save the Bees ", because they need us and we need them!

Too good to be true!
Hello my dears, if you look at my collection you will see that I am already more in the portable mainstream, or rather in the portable niche mainstream. I looked at the sheet music of this one and thought that I could try it! No sooner said than done, so I ordered the bee and received it yesterday afternoon. A little foreword to the brand, I think all, really all the zoologists have come out, except Camel maybe, really absolutely disgusting, it may be because, as I said, I wear more mainstream. Yesterday, as a retest, I sprayed half of them on cards (I have also tested them on the skin before) and regretted having done this in my room... Really, it stunk...I don't want to step on anyone's toes, to each his own, but for me personally this brand is in very large parts, simply not wearable.

But now we want to come back to the bee. I open the package, with rather mixed feelings due to the experiences I just mentioned... and spray that thing boldly on my arm as ever. I close my eyes, "so if this smells like the rest, then I have to get in the shower really quickly", I hardly dare to smell myself, give myself a jolt and stick my nose right into the just sprayed area of my forearm. Because of the horror I have caused myself, to have taken a train so close to the contaminated area, I immediately startled away again, out of sheer fear of what I might smell... Out of sheer amazement that it doesn't smell as terrible as I thought, I take another hit! And then I take another hit and another and another... And my goodness, guys, he's awesome! Really, I say this now and I don't want to hurt the rest of my collection, I always thought this "just one fragrance" talk was utopia. But I now officially admit it! This fragrance, from a brand that in my opinion really produces partly horrible perfumes and where none of them could convince me at all, comes now this creation that really makes me go crazy... If I had to limit myself to one, it would be Bee! There, I said it! But this thing is absolutely great! It just smells of joy, of pure joy... The scent starts a bit like Kobe von Xerjoff and reminds me a bit of an esoteric shop. What comes after is absolute mysticism! I filled it up last night for my sharing (dear participants, you can definitely be happy) and my whole room still smells of it! This slightly esoteric honey-sweetness, paired with floral aspects is simply magical. I wouldn't say that the whole thing seems feminine, I think it's a good balance. It's not overly sweet, not overly flowery, it's just perfectly matched! Simply a terrific fragrance and for me from now on the absolute number 1. Never before has a perfume triggered something like this in me. Never have I ever enjoyed a fragrance so much! Never before has a perfume deserved the name "perfume" so much! Just gorgeous. Just as dreamlike as the performance. As Extrait de Parfum it lasts forever, but does not radiate disturbing. You are wrapped in a mystical cloud all the way through and if you are not approached by a bunch of bees while wearing this masterpiece, I don't know...

Oh by the way, the bottle and the OVP is matching the fragrance, the absolute hammer!

Masterful!
I have tested all Zoologist fragrances without exception and am now the proud owner of 12 of them. So you could say that my perfume heart beats for this brand. And - regardless of what I just wrote - probably after Bee at the latest I would have become a follower.

Bee is (together with Squid, who is taking other paths in all respects) an absolute fragrance diamond! And perhaps these two are also the most "accommodating" zoologists Apart from the fact that the theme (as always) is excellently implemented, Bee captivates, bewitches and befuddles with a rich, wild and incredibly "real" honey note, embedded in hidden wild flowers and cuddly animalism in the base note. Cuddly animalism, because it does not come close to the slight pissiness or an often feared faecal tone. It smells of nature and animals in the most pleasant and lulling form.

But the honey note mentioned is the real star of the fragrance. It is really phenomenal and almost completely unsweet. Since I lack comparisons, but at the same time I want to describe it even better or more figuratively: there are these real wax candles (no idea what they are called). They look like honeycombs and are rolled up like this. If you know them and have ever smelled them when the wax gets warm, you have a rough idea of what the honey note looks like. Wild, syrupy, golden and rich.

In addition to the hoig note dominating the entire fragrance, secondary actors appear again and again in the background. Short and almost hidden. Like a breath of wind that passes through the honey for a moment. Sometimes there are light floral aromas, sometimes the bitter-creamy tonka bean or the already mentioned cuddly analik. It is a tiny little bit dirty, but only just enough for me to give all those who think that zoologists have been too weird or too animalistic so far a chance to take the test here!

Bee is undoubtedly a true zoologist, but he is so beautiful and graceful that I would like to make the claim that he will really score here! He has me wrapped around his finger
Hats off!

At home with the queen bee
Bee is the scent of the fuzzy fur of tiny honeycomb workers tending to their elegant, lofty queen.
Soft little animals crowd me from all sides. A continuous buzz fills the air, making my body tingle. There is a hint of floral sweetness in the air - the bees are returning from their day outdoors, pollen clinging to their fur. The honey is tucked away inside the hive in waxy, fragrant combs.

This scent has everything it takes to make me happy - resinous warmth, beeswax (I have a whole block of it at home and it's an absolutely intoxicating scent), soft musk, floral and vanilla sweetness balanced by some acidity (which I assume comes from orange/ginger/labdanum). It's extremely round, with great depth and as if from an alien world. Beautiful.

The only problem I've encountered is that this scent is so flawless and self-contained that other everyday scents strongly conflict with it, creating a disharmony.

So presumably this is the scent of the queen bee after all, who makes herself comfortable and is cared for by her loyal subjects with royal jelly - everything around her corresponds to her ideas and wishes, there is no room for disturbing things in her hive.

Beautiful, cozy, calming and soft. No sirup-y honey but rather soft soothing honeycomb. Lasts forever. Straight to my top 10.
