PerfumesTheGuide.com by Luca Turin"This thing is to the currently fashionable empyreumatic niche fragrances (smoke, incense, creosote) what cars that have been squeezed into a small cube by sculptor César Baldaccini are to a family saloon. Like them, T.Rex. is a compression, an object of mangled, impenetrable structure, with no air left inside and no discernible top and bottom. It is probably the most laconic fragrance ever devised."
TakingOneThingOff.com"It smells rich and addictive…", "It’s sexy as hell. Damn, give me a big, rich sandalwood base any day and you’ve got me. It’s like nuzzling into the chest of a biker who’s ridden through 50 miles of Mysore forest."
Cologonossieur.com"It is also another example of how Mr. Wong can accentuate the positives of the perfumers he works with. Tyrannosaurus Rex is a show of creative force multipliers producing something amazing."

Kafkaesqueblog.com"One can almost imagine a scaly, leathery, black-grey reptile roaring in a prehistoric swirl of smoke and molten lava, perhaps breathing fire to burn down the trees in his path like a dragon."
Scentbound.co"The result of Gardoni’s approach is a complex composition of notes and accords completing each other. The trick to the success here is getting the balancing act right. You can experience it done right in Tyrannosaurus Rex - a smoky leathery composition offset by dense creamy flowers."
Fragrantica.com"The real leap of T-Rex is that all these fantastical visions of a hellish world are there in the perfume, like a miraculous imaginary time capsule. But it's been blended so that we can actually wear it, bury our faces in it, sink in the curious warmth."
The Fragrance Journey"Initially I smell something other-worldly, as if I've landed on a planet with a strange and different atmosphere to which I am not accustomed. … Somehow he creates a moment of magic from these mundane ingredients, a pause where I thought, "I haven't smelled anything exactly like this before."

I just bought a full bottle after sampling this incredible beast of a fragrance. Complexity is immense. It smells like you’re riding the T-Rex as it’s pursuing it’s prey, first smelling the surrounding trees and some flowers, as well as whiffs of it’s breath. You then get the smell of hunted prey, freshly eaten flesh and finally the relatively peaceful/satisfied vibe of a predator’s afternoon nap. This is everything you want from a beastly scent – I just hope they never discontinue this one and make it extinct. It deserves to live forever!
