Zoologist Bee - Oozing Liquid Gold

Among the many animals represented in the Zoologist line, it's now time to pay tribute to a small, precious insect to which we owe so much on Earth: the Bee! Zoologist's owner and creative director Victor Wong picked one of my favorite perfume talents in the niche industry, Cristiano Canali, to work on this new scent.

The founder works with award-winning perfumers to bring innovative scents that all have a link with the animal world.

AI Robot paints its own moonscapes in traditional Chinese style

A Hong Kong artist has created an artificial intelligence (AI) robot which creates its own paintings. Victor Wong took three years to build and program the robot called A.I Gemini and teach it artistic techniques. A.I Gemini takes an average of 50 hours to create a blend of landscapes on traditional, fresh xuan paper made from bark and rice straw.

Chameleon and Dodo join Zoologist's Fragrant Managerie

  Over the last five years, I have been witness to something truly wonderful: the birth of niche indie perfume brand ZOOLOGIST. Osmagined [*an olfactive imagining] and manifested by my Facebook friend and fellow fragrant traveler Victor Wong, this brand has captured not only the imaginations, but the hearts and noses, of the worldwide fragrance community ("fragcomm.") It is for good reason. Vict... Read full article: Chameleon and Dodo join Zoologist's Fragrant Managerie from Fragrantica Perfum...

New Fragrance: Zoologist Tyrannosaurus Rex

Victor Wong, the creator of Zoologist perfumes, has joined forces with perfumer and architect Antonio Gardoni, to create the brand’s latest creature, Tyrannosaurus Rex. A certain buzz was forming around this release, and I was very curious to smell it.

Marketing Optimization Has a Rampant Pseudoscience Problem

In the rapidly changing world of digital marketing, "real-time" has become the desired adjective for any action. While long-term optimization is everyone's goal, marketers live in the "here and now," with quarterly company goals and daily media targets. And while "optimizing in real-time" may sound alluring, it may not produce long-term, sustainable results or meet the requirements of statistical science.Marketers and ad tech companies have increasingly turned good statistical science into pseud...

Zoologist's New Animals: Panda 2017 and Dragonfly

    Victor Wong's collection of animals is richer and richer. Very recently, two new scents were added to the Zoologist line: Panda 2017 and Dragonfly. Panda already existed and it was, in fact, part of the first group of fragrances the brand launched, but it never had much love from perfume followers. It was always the less appreciated perfume, originally created by Paul Kiler. Personal... Read full article: Zoologist's New Animals: Panda 2017 and Dragonfly from Fragrantica Perfumes and...

Zoologist's Nightingale - A Chypre Symbol

Even though my wonderful colleague Ida Meister has already reviewed the recently released Nightingale fragrance from Zoologist, I also want to pay homage to this scent. I just recently received samples from Victor Wong and even though I thought that Civet would be my biggest crush ever, it turned out that I loved Nightingale much more. Go figure!
