Edit – 9/29/21
The 2021 remake of Dragonfly is a little lighter, I think–the amber and heliotrope is replaced with benzoin and ginger, with the wet notes lasting longer on the bottom.
The mustiness of the rice still comes through, but it’s more powdery now–drying out just after a sun shower, rather than in the rain–and still cloying.
Not my favorite Zoologist.
Green pond lilies and sugar dipped flowers steaming in summer rainstorms.
There’s an amber shard edge that keeps it from being cloying, but it’s still too sweet for me.
An acoustic track from a post-grunge group that definitely has an amber edge.
