The company say:

The sun sparkled across rippling waves, its morning dance upon the Indian Ocean rousing the dodos from their carefree slumber. Stumbling drunkenly across the forest floor they feasted on overripe fruit where it lay, dropped for them by the lush island paradise that nurtured them. For generations, the predator-free and bountiful shores lulled them into such a state of complacency that their wings grew idle, and flight was lost – even to memory. Ultimately evolution would betray them, but while it lasted, the dodos enjoyed an existence marked by ease and comfort. In Zoologist Dodo, fragrant herbs and ferns are spiked with an invigorating splash of bergamot, juicy pineapple and blackcurrant, before the fruity aroma stumbles into a more traditional fougère. Spices frolic among notes of lavender, tonka and oakmoss, and settle down with beautiful woody undertones of oak. Dodo is a paradox. Like those extinct inhabitants of Mauritius, the scent is at once classic but fun, unknowable but impossibly unforgettable. The ideal perfume for those with an eclectic sensibility who crave a life of leisure and contentment.

Dry, bitter opening. A savory note prevails. Masculine, maybe - definitely not feminine... Savory note continues into the heart. Absolutely no sugary, sweetness, yet - remains bitter and rough around the edges.

The base, is the best layer. Gentle floral vibe, smooth, creamy woodiness. A tad of something "sweet". Overall - not a favorite of mine. I prefer the original Dodo... Sorry, Victor!

Zoologist's description is lovely, but the experience is more pedestrian. This is the dingy restaurant in Tom Ford's London: there's a sort of rank, lingering undertone of scallions and cilantro, and it mingles uncertainly amongst the fruity top notes. This is a pervasive scent that will linger on the skin, wanted or not. This has all the great makings of a meal...but not a perfume. This one laid an egg for me.

Unfortunately this rework is a shadow of its former self. The original was such a unique scent. It’s combination of feathery musks, tart fruit, and refreshing ocean air was unlikely anything else I’ve smelled. This on the other hand smelled kind of like a sweaty, herbal Aventus, and you can smell that for free at your local nightclub. No offense meant to the perfumer, my grievances mostly lie with the house director for replacing it.

Glad I managed to get one of the last bottles of the original. Hope JK DeLapp can remake his version as Ellen Covey did with Bat.
