    1. Nice, straightforward leather 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 4th Sep 2020

      Robust and unsophisticated leather. It is, indeed, reminiscent of an old library with scarred, comofortable, leather armchairs...in the best of ways.

    2. Get ready for Rhino-Jihad 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 21st May 2017

      Rhino however spreads out on the skin, upon application, like a well groomed and clean shaven group of football players, bursting out of the huddle and lining up at the line of scrimmage. There's energy here that is tangible. The notes are packed tightly together and then once the huddle breaks, an audible is called and the formation spreads out, giving everything more room.

      There's an approximate 2-3 minute window, immediately following application, that I can detect almost every listed note. Almost as quickly, that clarity vanishes and is replaced by a heavier, denser quality and aroma. This begins the heart of Rhinoceros and it pumps the suggestion of whiskey soaked suede, pepper, moist earth and forest woods that have been permanently altered by heat and fire. From the initial, subtle smokiness, a charred leather rears its head and supplants the suede that manifested only moments earlier. These were noticeable transitions and I enjoyed trying to analyze them in real time.

      Rhinoceros spends the remainder of its time, on my skin, as a smoke-infused woody leather, accented intermittently by earthy tones. The rendition of smoke here, used by Paul Kiler, once the base and drydown commence is perhaps one of the more superior and wearable ones I've come across as of late.

      Sillage is average or slightly better than that, with longevity approximately 4-5 hours on my skin before turning into a skin scent for just as long. This accomplished with moderate sprays. Thumbs up from Aromi for Paul Kiler's Rhinoceros and as you would expect, a sample wear is recommend before purchase.

    3. Leather Disengaged 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 11th Feb 2017

      The opening leather has teeth marks in it...a bit of a bite, you could say, almost brutish. (This might be the result of the artemisia, along with the sage.) About half-an-hour in, a suede appears to soften the opening leather. The use of tobacco, along with geranium and the top lavender, might have helped to produce it. I didn't notice any immortellle , but perfumers use ingredients for different affects. I should mention I really didn't notice the rum in the opening. The most enjoyable part of Rhinoceros is in the dry down. There is a really nice pine/vetiver/agarwood combo that takes place. It's backed up with a pleasant musk. Zoologist has created a decent woodsy masculine scent.

    4. Leather bomb (in a good way) 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 4th Aug 2016

      Zoologist has so many wonderful, fascinating fragrances. Rhino is a big, bold, smoky, black leather soaked in resins, pine sap, dry wood and dirty, sexy musk. The drydown has a sweet, spiced tobacco tone on my skin. Every time that I wear this, I smell something different about it and it progresses just a bit differently, but it's always amazing.

    5. LEATHER HEADS UNITE 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 14th Apr 2016

      When you think of a rhino you think of the horn, correct ? When you think of a horn you think phallic , correct ? When you think of them combined , you visualize the beast charging in and taking presence ,and with that you would also be spot on and very correct !!! Rhinoceros has to be one of, if not the best leather fragrance at this price point or even at higher price points. This is not a copy cat of TF's TL . This fragrance stands by itself.If your a fan of the leathers , this ones a must sample. I will be adding this to my other leathers.

    6. Very strong leather smell 3 Star Review

      Posted by on 30th Dec 2015

      This is a very strong masculine smell. It smells like the namesake: rhinoceros-like. If you like strong leather scents with no hint of a clean scent, this is a great masculine scent. No unisex fragrance here in my opinion. It's a bit overwhelming for me.

    7. Beautiful, complex, animalic leather 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 26th Jul 2015

      If ever a fragrance conjured up images of a huge snarling beast, this is it. Strong leather/rum/oud opening that is masculine in the best way. Dries down to a very smooth and slightly dirty leather with some interesting floral and woody facets. If the note list or description sounds like it might appeal to you, definitely give this one a try. Personally I was blown away.

    8. Goodie 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 21st Jul 2015

      This is a scent with rhinomuscles. A must-try for leather lovers. I really liked how the geranium note took place and gave it a freshness.
