Messengers of spring arrive, bearing gifts that bring smiles to faces dulled by winter’s chill. The joyous song of the nightingale accompanies vibrant fuchsia-coloured aromas of Japanese plum blossoms as they spread, infusing the tepid air. It marks a fleeting moment of emotional awaking: to some a time for celebration and fresh starts; to others, a countdown to a departure for unknown horizons.
Zoologist captures the onset of the Japanese spring through Nightingale, a pink floral chypre that will melt your heart. It opens with rich scents of saffron and rosy, powdery, tart Japanese plum blossoms, enveloping the core of the perfume like a luxurious silk kimono. Deep, warm aromas of oud, patchouli, moss, incense and ambergris seek to escape, seeping from the ruddy petals, to create a composition that’s complex and at the same time, simply desirable.

Blind-bought this after many reviews compared it to Lutens' Nombre Noir. Nightingale definitely smells like a loud 80s chypre upon first spray, although I catch more powdery iris and violet notes on my skin compared Nombre Noir's rose. Quietens down in about 30 minutes and stays fairly linear- the drydown almost reminds me of Amouage Gold (?!) at times. Wish the Oud was more prominent because I don't smell it at all- but instead, a beautiful sandalwood, oakmoss and musk forms the backbone, complementing the powdery notes that are still very much present.
While the drydown is fairly unisex, this still leans floral/feminine to my nose. I've had it on for a little under three hours now, and it is still going strong- although it is now more of a skin scent. (My skin eats perfume in a hurry, though, so others might get more mileage out of this.)
Definitely safer/more wearable compared to its brethren in the Zoologist family (Bat, I'm looking at you), but it is exquisite and well-crafted nonetheless and I'm sure I'll be reaching for it quite often on cold, crisp wintry days.
