Huge trees quake at their approach, vulnerable leaves shuddering as the ground rumbles under heavy footsteps. They come with appetites as massive as their lumbering bodies. Nothing is spared from their bottomless hunger – trees stripped bare, roots upturned, even the tiniest blooms cannot escape their grasp. When the behemoths move on, they leave behind a path of destruction. Yet what often looks like carnage is actually a renaissance. The elephants fulfill a vital role – purging the delicate ecosystem, allowing new life to flourish. From beneath a canopy of lush, damp foliage, the complex aromas of Zoologist Elephant emerge. Into a mixture of invigorating Darjeeling and incense, swirl hints of coconut and cocoa. With the patience of a foraging herd stripping the bark from a thicket of trees, the fragrance dissipates gradually. What is revealed is the core of the perfume – a beautiful and satisfying blend of woody notes, which dry down to an elegant, natural sandalwood scent.

Extrait de Parfum (20%)

A generous and profound study of sandalwood, Elephant is a woody fragrance that moves in two directions: creamy and green. It is intriguing yet readily wearable, and suits all seasons for wear.

Made in Canada

Zoologist’s Elephant is a sandalwood fragrance, beginning and ending with this note – which is venerated and imagined in a highly inventive context. The sandalwood accord in Elephant marries 26 natural and synthetic materials in order to convincingly replicate rare and prized Mysore sandalwood, fine-tuning the note according to the imagination of the perfumer. The sandalwood note is durable, emphasised, and multifaceted, thumping its characteristic creaminess contrasted with a dry woody core. Developing this duality, perfumer Chris Bartlett joins this with a chocolate accord that melts into the grains of sandalwood, adding richness, earthiness, and a discernible point of darkness amongst the open air of Elephant as a whole.

On the other hand, the creamy, sweet, floral-tinged, and even slightly soapy sensation of coconut milk is the foil for a tropical rainforest fantasy; the link that connects the core sandalwood note to a stampede of elephants crunching down on tree leaves, earth, and the occasional white petalled flower. Elephant welcomes two perspectives at once: a close look at a fine sandalwood, situated in the fresh leafy green air. This green is not slouchy, but prismatic and concentrated, a medley of herbal, floral and cooling mint and violet leaf impressions. This high-pitched accent quickly softens with the dry warmth of black tea and incense, shading the breezy atmosphere of Elephant.
“I believe we’ve created something genuinely original and I’m extremely proud of that. In a crowded perfume market, it’s not easy to come up with something that is new, beautiful and has something to say. Elephant is all of those.” – Chris Bartlett
