Camel is a series of elegant contradictions. Technically, it’s an oriental, but in sidestepping all of the clichés of the genre, it retains a surprisingly brisk, fat-free mien. It features a plethora of rich, sticky notes like dates and dried fruit, but is as dry as a glass of champagne. Frankincense, musk, and oud lend a sinuous exoticism that speaks to the East; yet Camel has a distinctly retro flourish that places it firmly among the flanks of classic French perfumes such as My Sin and Arpege.
Arabian Aroma Caravan
On a trek through an unforgiving desert, starting point and destination are indistinguishable from one another. Terracotta-hued dunes twist and writhe, their shapes ever-shifting. Only the merciless sun and aloof constellations can be trusted to point the way. Weighed down by treasures – some tempting the eyes with their glittering sheen, others enticing the taste buds with exotic aromas – the camel plods toward a far off marketplace. Water is but a dream for now, the taste of sweet dates a distant memory. There is nothing but an endless ocean of sand.
In Zoologist Camel, beautiful aromas of rose, and jasmine-infused, succulent dried fruits are joined along the way by an alluring blend of incense, myrrh, amber, and cinnamon. Soon met by animalistic musks and authentic oud, they surround you in a rich tapestry. This sensual caravan of fragrance carries you away to accompany the camel on its long, lonely journey across the ageless desert.
