Re: What are you wearing today?

@WinglessOne  You look fabulous but i am here for your amazing perfume description Smiley Happy T-Rex!?!? Who would have thought! It's unfortunate the initial scent was so intense, it sounds like it mellows out to something quite lovely. Though I'll admit, the first image that popped into my head when you wrote "T-Rex experience" was you walking around waving your arms Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

@MissPuff  😂 There’s a book called T-Rex Trying by Hugh Murphy that speaks to my soul, as a short woman whose arms are not meant for this tall people world.

Here’s Zoologist’s marketing fluff description of this perfume: 

 

Spoiler
A sultry heat wafts across the land, lapped up greedily by the abundant flora that thrives in its midst. Trees soar to majestic heights and plants flower for the first time, their petals spreading to give birth to a world rich in diversity. The Cretaceous period comes of age against a backdrop scorched by wildfire and lightning strikes. Over this turbulent landscape, a massive predator looms. Giants rule the earth, but even giants can be cut down within the powerful jaws of the fearsome tyrannosaur. Standing tall, the terrifying beast fears nothing, until that pivotal moment when a fire in the sky signals the end of their deadly reign. 


Zoologist Tyrannosaurus Rex is a gargantuan scent that sinks its teeth into the world of delicate fragrances and rips it wide open. Primitive woods and florals seize you and sn*tch you away to an ancient era. Smoky, charred wood warns of the danger of smouldering fire, setting your senses on edge, while droplets of metallic rose oxide offer a chilling premonition of blood-lust. The mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex is sometimes menacing, sometimes fascinating, but never, ever ordinary.” 

Hilarious that sn*tch—err, quickly grab—is on Sephora’s bad words list. 😂 I haven’t heard anyone use that as a bad word in a probably a decade. 

And here are the fragrance notes: 

Spoiler

Top Notes: Bergamot, Black Pepper, Fir, Laurel Leaf, Neroli, Nutmeg 
Heart Notes: Champaca, Geranium, Jasmine, Osmanthus, Rose, Ylang Ylang 
Base Notes: Resins, Cade, Cedar, Civet*, Frankincense, Leather*, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla 

*Synthetic notes. Zoologist Tyrannosaurus Rex does not use animal products. 

I don’t hate the initial burning wildfire scent. I love smoke in fragrances. I just didn’t expect it to be so strong here. 😮🔥 And this was a dabber sample; if I buy a bottle, I’ll have to be very light-handed on the trigger and wear it only on one spot. But I’m fine with that. One of my favorite perfumes ever (Anubis) requires the same technique. Plus, I love how T-Rex transitions over time. And yeah, I’ve definitely just talked myself into buying a full bottle. 🖤 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Love the poor T-Rex’s dilemma- I commiserate being just over 5’ tall.  The fragrance sounds intense but very interesting ❤️

Re: What are you wearing today?

@WinglessOne WHAT! That book is AWESOME! I am totally getting that for my nephew Smiley Happy 

 

That fragrance description is so enticing...I'm totally going to look up Zootologist now !

Re: What are you wearing today?

@2manyperfumes ,

Lovely look!  The palette with no name is intriguing!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you @tsavorite ❤️ Well one day maybe I’ll find out who makes it

Re: What are you wearing today?

@2manyperfumes ,

It also looks like such a great palette!  I love looking at the colors! 

(I'm easily entertained!)

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you @tsavorite 😘 the moment I said no buy for a while - I ended up with more eyeshadows and lipsticks 

RE: Re: What are you wearing today?

Beautiful look!!!!

Re: RE: Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you @idanyd ❤️

RE: Re: What are you wearing today?

@2manyperfumesBeautiful look, as always. 😊 I thought I had found a name to your no name palette, but then I read that it came with a lip tray as well? Back to Google I go!

 

 

Re: RE: Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you @joragroy 🥰 I’m completely stumped lol

just so lovely @2manyperfumes

just so lovely @2manyperfumes

Re: just so lovely @2manyperfumes

Thank you @lmaster 😘

Re: What are you wearing today?

@2manyperfumes  This is such a pretty look! I’m surprised that mystery palette has no brand name on the back, considering how big it is. That’s a whole lotta cool-toned options to play with. Smiley Happy 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you @WinglessOne 😁 I’m stumped that it only says eyes, lips and face.  There was a lip tray but my daughter used it up.  One day I might see it somewhere hopefully I don’t get a shock lol.  Watch it be something or someone I wouldn’t buy from sshhhh - maybe best I never find out.  🧐
