ABOUT THE COLLABORATION: Singer Zola Jesus joined forces with us to create a fragrance and incense matching the essence of her new album Taiga; coincidentally written on Vashon Island (near Seattle where Blackbird resides). With similar interests in music, art, and scent, we found a natural connection that is rare and powerful.
SCENT NOTES: Guaiacwood, Teak, Oud, Copaiba Balsam, Frankincense, Cedar, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Choya Loban, Nagarmotha, Sandalwood, Smoke, Myrrh, Vetiver
DETAILS: Taiga is the ancient scent of smoke born from the first fire. Taiga honors the lineage of our nomadic ancestors who traversed the far corners of our world in isolation, living in perfect communion with nature. Taiga represents the sovereignty of the woods and stone, the burning curiosity of human nature, and man’s responsibility for the fate of our changing earth.
SCENT NOTES: oud wood and floral nectar
THE STORY: Our most extravagant incense fragrance to date, Hekkes builds on an exotic oud wood base with a rich and sappy floral nectar accord balancing the immersive comfort of flowers and the attractive edge of the world's most sought after wood. Hekkes is inspired by the desire for beauty so inconceivably immense that it could only exist beyond reality.
SCENT NOTES: wood bouquet and beeswax
THE STORY: Gorgo is inspired by the story of Gorgo, Queen of Sparta and wife to King Leonidas. She was most famous for discovering a secret message on a wood tablet covered in beeswax warning the Spartans of Xerxes' pending invasion. With its brilliant layers of contrasting woods and beeswax, Gorgo will endow any space with an air of preparedness for whatever comes next.
SCENT NOTES: frankincense, warm resins, spice
DETAILS: Blood Countess is a warm, resinous, and spicy home fragrance where classic biblical incense is joined by dragon's blood resin to warm your spirits and bring back the glow of youth. The name Blood Countess was inspired by the dragon's blood resin contained within and the famous serial killer Countess Elizabeth Báltory de Ecsed who bathed in the blood virgins to reverse the aging process. Made in the USA.
SCENT NOTES: geranium, rose stem, moss, mint
DETAILS: Ai contrasts the green leafy plants of our gardens with a sophisticated richness of the marble covered palaces of our dreams.
Inspired by Blackbird customer Mike H. of Edmonton, Alberta.
