The company says:
Like Egyptians entrusting sacred mummies to tombs for the journey to the next life, a scarab burying its treasure marks the dawn of new life. Zoologist Sacred Scarab captures the mystique of Kyphi incense, a blend of blue lotus, raisins, plums, olibanum, myrrh, and juniper. Once bound with wine and burned in ancient rituals, today this divine scent guides your spirit on a path to discovery and rebirth.

Latest Reviews of Sacred Scarab
Back then, though, a perfume like Sacred Scarab would have sat on the counter at Goldwaters or The Broadway, shoulder to shoulder with Dioressence, Magie Noir, and No. 19. Teen girls who saved their pennies from their Orange Julius jobs would have bought it without a second thought—or stolen spritzes from their moms' bottles.
Today, it's "niche," maybe even tongue-in-niche (I never know with Zoologist), but if you want to smell like a perfume revival, like an assertion, like a plea to once again consider (literal) piss elegance as a viable aesthetic choice, an antidote to an overload of both oud and of athleisure, snag yourself a bottle of this.
Sacred Scarab starts out with a wallop, gets a bit sickly sweet, but ends packing a real punch. It has distinct "redolent-of-old-lady" times throughout its transmogrification, to be sure, but the whole package is totally worth it.
I chased a horsefly down the street with a bottle of Sacred Scarab only to fall into a hole, twist my ankle, scuff a new shoe, break the bottle, and get stung. But it was worth it. Because I smelled great.
Charming creation which spells oriental kind of scent . A very good juice!
Really beautiful and I hope it sticks around sans reformulation for a long while yet. The first full bottle worthy zoologist I've tried.
