THE ZOO

Spacewood

eau de parfum

Description

Spacewood, The Zoo, by Christophe Laudamiel is a surprising original fragrance, fresh, icy, dewy, and paradise-like.

Trampoline into the future. A scent can be abstract, helping you think into the future. Beside man-made molecules, some natural extracts can be used for that purpose. Indeed, all naturals do not smell natural. The neon-green and yellow sensation in the scent are created thanks to notes found in Egyptian mimosa, white wine and acacia flower. They are combined with some interesting molecules the same way synthetic materials are used in a skyscrapers to create new effects.

Quote The Candy Perfume Boy:
"Every now and then I smell a fragrance that leaves me completely dumbfounded as to what I’m smelling. SPACEWOOD is one such fragrance. It was created to showcase the fact that natural materials can smell just as abstract and unusual as synthetic ones – a mission that it most certainly achieves.

So let me jump right in and say that SPACEWOOD is fascinatingly abstract. Initially it hovers between airy and metallic, with a cloud-like lightness and texture. It’s gauzy and somewhat fluffy, but with a distinct sharp edge – like a brillo pad, scrunchiness. There’s citrus and spice, but it’s pretty much undefinable, and that’s what I enjoy about the experience – it takes very few cues from perfumery ingredients one knows and understands, instead presenting odours that aren’t alien, but are experience disparately in the real world.

To my nose, SPACEWOOD appears as the smell of apples, ozone, metallic wires, cool air, neon gas and space rocks. But SPACEWOOD isn’t just a collection of unusual smells, it’s a fully-fleshed out and wearable composition, and an incredibly spacious one at that. It is weightless and expansive with an atmospheric quality, which allows its affable oddness to carry generously. Great stuff!"

Brand

The Zoo

"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." (CommunityLouisSpacewoodVetyver 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." (EverlastingClub 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).
