Zoologist Perfumes has been intriguing fragrance lovers with clever, imaginative, and playful scents since it was founded by Victor Wong in 2013. The niche fragrance house, based in Toronto, captures the idiosyncrasies of the animal kingdom and transforms them into scents with names like Bat, Beaver, Hummingbird, Macaque, Nightingale, Panda, and Rhinoceros. (Note: No animal products are used in the Zoologist line of fragrances).
We’ll experience the aroma of each perfume in the Zoologist line and explore what inspired their creation. Civet, a new fragrance dedicated to a mammal with a strong connection to the perfume arts, will also be shared.
Michelle Krell Kydd is a trained “nose” in flavors and fragrance and the editor of the award-winning blog Glass Petal Smoke. She was recently interviewed in The Conversation regarding smell loss (anosmia) and the misappropriation of the term “noseblind." The Smell & Tell series of events celebrates its fifth anniversary year at the Ann Arbor District Library and is ongoing.

I already ordered my samples too! I can’t wait to see which one I like (or two) on my skin best! Thanks for supporting Michelle and helping spread the love!

It was a great lecture. Michelle is such a wonderful story teller and teacher. I really enjoyed this one, and just bought some samples to try on my body.

We are so lucky to live in Ann Arbor where we can attend Smell and Tell for free at our public library. Michelle’s lectures exercise our sense of smell, and offer fascinating insights into the perfume industry. We experienced all eight Zoologist scents this evening. My favorites were Nightingale and Hummingbird. Will definitely order some samples.

Just discovered Zoologist and Victor Wong. So jealous that I cannot be there for this experience!
