Sailors

DREAM: AMERICAN SAILORS MEETING RUSSIAN SAILORS

DESCRIPTION Originally created upon a friend’s request in 2002, SAILORS intends to represent both sensuality and friendship around the globe. A friendship that shall go beyond the political confrontations of the flags on their ships… Not to mention most find these friendly sea voyagers quite sexy.

TWIST This is a perfumer’s remix of Déclaration for Men (Jean Claude Elena/Cartier Parfums 1998). Just as a DJ creates a remix from an existing song, making it more dramatic and dancey.

In SAILORS, bass (base) notes were added with deeper sexier tones: Cashmeran®, a touch of Seaweed, Cinnamon Leaves and Clove…, along with resounding notes: Javanol® and Ambrox® Super big time, natural Indian Sandalwood big time, Wolfwood®, Helvetolide®…

Some further dancing freshness was also mixed in: five Grapefruit notes, Mandarin, Lemon, molecular Violet Leaves, iso-Cyclocitral...

As per THE ZOO® Code of Ethics, if Cartier Parfums, Symrise or Jean-Claude Ellena would like to be compensated with a royalty agreement, we will gladly abide, counting on everyone to act fairly. We intend to show a new way of respecting creators as well as fighting blunt plagiarism which is entrenched and rewarded in perfumery. For instance, as a starting point, we could learn from the music arena, and go beyond to avoid its issues. Let’s be clever and legally creative.

Rhubarb My Love

Dream "Fresh rhubarb and patience can work wonders." Get ready to start something new.

Scent Rhubarb My Love, a name that says it all. Nothing else.

Twist No twist here. Enjoy.

Everlasting 

Dream “Some of the best things in life appear in darkness and will entice you to live, or tell a good tale.”

Scent Labdanum resin extracted from this wild Spanish plant smells very resiney-ambery, and somewhat leathery. Combined with large amounts of Narcissus absolute from Aubrac-Auvergne, France, the birthplace of yours truly provides a definite amber and Chypre feeling. Modern musks and strong woods are added to (reconstituted) moss. 

Twist Narcisse absolute is not really floral, but very green-earthy and wet-mossey. Aubrac-Auvergne could be the French Montana, complete with dormant volcanoes, pristine lakes, less dormant rivers, and wild cattle on vast mountainous landscapes. Real moss would smell too old fashioned in this seductive blend. The pure, and much more expensive, Narcisse Absolute gives Everlasting its Chypre character.

Scent Tattoo

 

Dream “We love Scotland, the surprising, acrobatic moves of those gorgeous kilts, free spirits moving to the beat of a sensual dance"

Scent Soft leather and so called masculine woods join forces to recreate the compelling atmosphere of a military performance. Sexy musks with the fibery note of African cedar from the the Atlas region recreate the feeling of gorgeous tartan fabric. Molecular Sandalwood and spiciness from lilies accentuate sensuality. Mimosa, a fluffy flower whose extract smells naturally of leather, blends the different elements together. A touch of bright watery notes found in blackcurrant and grapefruit lighten up the top of the fragrance like a mini dance on a strong flowing sensual background.

Twist Exact same fragrance oil and concentration as Club Design 692, also by The Zoo.

 Louis

Dream “Under the skin, we are kin” - *Carl Safina*

Scent A pleasant watery “masculine” freshness with superfluid cardamom supported by only a touch of clove, cumin and orange flower. Sheer white musks and heaps of French sage softened with 1.8% (that's a lot!!) of 100% pure orris concrete. To top it off, a dash of fir balsam, clear galbanum and a sprinkle of American absinthe.

Twist This fragrance comes in two similar yet different labels; one dark and the other light. We want to emphasize that all human beings, regardless of our skin colour, have souls of the same value and worth inside.
