Squid

by Zoologist

Zoologist's Squid - by perfumer Céline Barel - evokes a "Melancholic Inky Sea."

"The vast ocean swells and contracts, caught in the relentless tug of the moon. Beneath the surface, a school of squid emerges. Strange, elastic forms propel from the deep in a frantic search for sustenance. They are not alone. Their predators lunge, only to be foiled by blinding jets of murky ink. The hunt ends abruptly as a monolith materializes, greedily engulfing all in its path. The massive sperm whale dives, leaving a temporary peace bobbing in its wake. Decades on, relics of the battle resurface. Lumps of ambergris, expelled by the whale and polished by the salty currents, wash ashore. Waste? Flotsam? To the perfumer this elusive substance is nothing less than treasure."

Zoologist's Squid sings a song of the sea, a melancholy tale told through tangy brine, crisp incense, and sweet, cloudy ink, all united by the moody aroma of ambergris. Like the endless depths that inspired it, this elegant scent ripples with mystery.

  1. Deliciously mysterious 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2021

    Love Love Love this scent. It's very comforting and makes me feel mysterious. However, I wish the sillage was a bit larger and the duration of the scent on my skin or clothes was longer. I am used to full-length wear with one or two sprays but this does not meet that expectation.


  2. An aquatic incense 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2020

    Like another reviewer said on Fragrantica, it's like "A Catholic church at the bottom of the ocean". If you like incense based perfumes, this is a must try. Inky, watery, fresh, burning Frankincense resinous. One of my favourite discoveries of the year. Mesmerizing. I'm considering a full bottle.
