A wonderfully enveloping seductive amber scent with a cheerful twist from the special brand The Zoo from New York.
Amber Classico Modern by master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel is a soft, warm scent that envelops you like a cashmere shawl, with a relaxed sunny twist. Very comfortable and elegant.
This is a second-generation after the original from 2016: in the 2021 version, the amber is even more cheerful and has a colourful twist, with the addition of gentian and Peru balsam, plus some little secrets.
Quote by The Zoo: "Fluid, luminous, and laidback. When amber becomes sensuous and fresh, this is a democratization and modernization of the accord.
A scent to make amber a no-brainer to wear even on hot days - and even hot nights! You will discover natural benzoin drops from Laos and Cambodia, peru balsam from El Salvador. Fair Wild certified and sustainable wild labdanum absolute from Spain freshened up with plenty of natural mandarins from Sicily and strengthened with gentian from French volcanoes and a touch of geranium For Life certified from Egypt. Little secrets here and there to make it unctuous, sensuous yet fluid.
Unique twist: this fragrance contains an aldehyde found in chicken soup but also in calamus and yuzu is part of the yummy je-ne-say-quoi. No animal has been killed for this scent. It can however be a killer on humans. No liability here, all remains in your hands and wherever you spray it. Enjoy with no limitation."
"Fragrances are like animals, living creatures that require attention and nourishment. They are kept in bottle-like cages, calm or longing to escape. They each have their own safety features and come with their own rituals and anecdotes. Some are domesticated, some are wild and left for you to discover." - Christophe Laudamiel
The founder and perfumer of The Zoo is Christophe Laudamiel. He is the perfect example of a versatile and talented perfumer, being a chemist, perfumer, fragrance artist and an educational and insightful lecturer on scents.
With THE ZOO he created a playful and striking brand with high-quality perfumes. The scents are compared to animals, with their own unique personalities. Gently wrapped in a 100% woolen bag, ready to be released, on your skin!
Luca Turin: "Christophe Laudamiel’s The Zoo is a small perfumery in New York making one of the most interesting and beautiful fragrances on the market today."
The Zoo collection includes scents in 4 categories:
RAW: "Blunt, straight forward and explicit fragrances. What you see on the fragrance label is what you get. Wear The Zoo RAW scents because you like it straightforward, without embellishments. You love the purity of the ingredient and the honesty of the fragrance." (Rhubarb My Love, Fig My Love, Tubéreuse Organique)
FRESH: "Easy to wear fragrances, a breath of fresh air and good energy for you and the people around you. Drench yourself in it as a wake-up call in the morning, stay fresh and motivated in the office, the gym, on the plane or train. Stay fresh in hot climates or in overheated rooms in the winter." (Community, Louis, Spacewood, Vetyver Rain Skin)
SEXY: "Deep and sensual fragrances, full-bodied but not necessarily heavy, but sure to leave an impression. Watch people around you as you wear these fragrances: you wear The Zoo SEXY scents when you are on a mission." (Everlasting; Club Design; Scent Tattoo, Sailors)
FORBIDDEN: "You and your fragrance like to go against accepted standards. You're comfortable being a paradigm-breaker: wear The Zoo FORBIDDEN in public or whispering behind closed doors. These smells are banned by experts or by countries where they won’t be shipped, due to their ingredient content, proportions or creation methods." (Carré Blanc; No Perfume).
