Zoologist Perfumes is a Toronto-based niche perfume line with as you can see, adorable packaging. The line currently consists of three perfumes. With my introduction to the line, I wanted to try my favorite animal offered, Panda. In general, I really connect with giant pandas because we both eat all of the time and wear too much eye makeup.

Just in time for Valetine’s Day, Sweet Anthem is launching two new limited edition perfumes, Lolita and Poppy. These are in the Valentine for Vendetta Anthology, the house’s Spring Collection.
Lolita has notes of black currant, cherry blossom, rosewood, tonka bean and sea salt.
Lolita opens as a delicate, powdery cherry blossom. Lolita has a clean, warm quality that reminds me of sun-dried linens. It’s sheer, warm and laundered. It’s one of those delicate, musky florals.
