Amber Classico Modern Sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample. Find the full bottle here.  

    Cozy up with this new release by Master Perfumer, Christophe Laudamiel, as you sink into its warmth that is distinctively fresh and modern. A second generation of its 2016 original, you’ll find fluidity and luminosity in the amped up amber notes as they mingle with the addition of gentian extract from French volcanoes and peru balsam. What we love about this scent is how contemporary the amber accord is and how this suede-like skin scent gets a boost of brightness from sicilian mandarin, making it wearable throughout the year. It’s magically radiant with all of the goodness we have come to love from The Zoo. You will discover natural benzoin drops from Laos and Cambodia, peru balsam from El Salvador, fair and wild-certified and sustainable labdanum absolute from Spain, and a touch of geranium from Egypt. Little secrets here and there to make it unctuous, sensuous yet fluid. Here’s a unique twist: this fragrance contains an aldehyde found in chicken soup but also in calamus and yuzu and is part of the yummy je-ne-say-quoi.


    Notes include benzoin, labdanum, white musks, orchid molecules, gentian extract, sicilian mandarin, and peru balsam.
