“Of course you can fly a zeppelin to the moon. There's all that ether. A bit like flying through a calf's-foot jelly actually—what did you think held the Earth up, hm? String?”
A dashing, old-school captain's-cabin scent. A scent wearing a greatcoat with gold bits on, if you will. Teak wood, redcurrant, oak moss, geranium leaf, and brown musk with a spot of treacle.

If Captain of Industry is James Bond, then Zeppelin is Q, or possibly Alfred -- the quietly dignified yet indispensable assistant. This is a scent that is equally at home with a Heppler wrench or multimeter, but does not scruple to get in there with a mallet, if needed. Over the veddy proper English club bits of warm leather, dusty stuffed Polar Bear fur and imported wood and spice is a hint of warm Bakelite plastic; a little old fashioned, but completely appropriate. It never really changes character, just fades slowly over time, completely dependable. You know that this scent will make sure all your gadgets are restocked and there will be a spot of tea waiting when you return from your latest mission.

So, in response to the below review, the scent eventually died down.
First into a light, sweet, cinnabon-esque scent.
Then into something resembling a dusty bookshelf, hinted after with a bit of Cuban cigar.
The whole thing turned into a nice afternoon.

In the bottle: Something like generic hair conditioner, not particularly interesting.
On me: Being male, and not overwhelmingly so, I feel like this produces a very steampunk effect.
The scent is warm and spicy. The kind of warm that is a zeppelin cabin heated by a vent coming off of the boiler room. The kind of spice that is a well-worn leather captain's chair, imported from somewhere in Spain, that has pleasant brass buttons accenting the arms.
Overall, a nice scent of luxurious comfort and fine scotch.

In the bottle, this is a very effeminate, perfume-y mixture that vaguely incites thoughts of after-shower powder.
On the skin, the not-quite-baby powder-esque smell really comes through; reminds me of my black friends on a night out.

In the bottle, this scent is spicy but not too heavy, and has a bit of a zing to it. Exactly as you'd expect a zeppelin to the moon to possess!
On my skin, that zing gentles out into to a sort of rich spicy muskiness-a bit dragonsblood-like, but better!--that gentles further as it dries. I have to say this scent has some serious staying power: I put it on this morning and by noon I could still smell it.
As other shave noted, not a girly girly smell, but I refuse to smell like either a flower bed, a baby, or a, uh, house full of ladies of questionable morals, and this is an excellent smell for me!

Zepplin to the Moon is definitely very woodsy, and is a sweet, heavy scent. I worried that the musk would be too much, but it manages to take a back seat to the sweeter scents, which works well for me. A masculine scent, but I'm female and it works on me too. I prefer florals, so I don't wear this one too much, but that shouldn't stop any dapper lads or lasses from trying it for themselves.

This is one of my favorite smells ever. The base smell is similar to men's cologne, but the combined product is about a billion times better. Fancy, cozy, and comfortable, the kind of multipurpose scent that's perfect for lounging around in your fancy mansion, or piloting a zeppelin through the Amazon, or smoking a pipe jauntily. Masculine but as I'm female I'd be hypocritical if I said it was only for men ;)
