Zoologist Perfumes

Zoologist is consistently one of our top selling niche fragrance brands, with their groundbreaking collection of eau de parfums and extraits built around perfumers' olfactory imaginings of animals. Working with innovative indie perfumers and in-demand classically trained noses, brand founder Victor Wong inspires exploration of the many facets of animals and their environments, as he explains:

"At Zoologist Perfumes, our fascination with animals is boundless. Their habitats, behaviours and looks; their similarities and differences with humans, and even their smells give us a lot to ponder. Their cunning inspires us, their agility resonates with our primal instincts, and their cuteness makes us giggle. Our line of perfumes captures the idiosyncrasies of the animal kingdom and transforms them into scents that are unusual, beautiful, fun and even shocking. Our scents will reconnect you with the manifold delights of the natural world. Our products are free from natural animal-derived musks; they have been replaced with synthetic ones for ethical reasons." — Victor Wong, Zoologist Perfumes Founder and Creative Director
