2015 SUMMER INCENSE PYRE SAMPLER
DETAILS: Now that summer is here (or almost), open your windows, dine under the stars, sip rosè or pilsner with friends, and burn a little incense cone while you're at it.
While candles are best during those cold and winter months, incense seems more natural in the hot summer breeze. While traveling in Dubai we experienced the smell of incense and hookah smoke wafting from every building and this reminded us of incense's natural place under the stars, amplified by the heat but spread out by the open air. Give it a shot and let us know what you think by tagging us on Instagram @blackbirdballard

ZOLA JESUS TAIGA X BLACKBIRD INCENSE
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.

THE STORY: What if you could be invisible for a few moments? Just long enough for the phone to stop ringing, for the dog to stop barking, for the notifications to stop coming through. Just long enough to clear away all the distractions so the only thing to focus on is being. What if you could forget about everything else for a few minutes and just enjoy your coffee, the morning breeze, and the warmth of the sun?

MOTO OUD EAU DE PARFUM
SCENT NOTES: oud, leather, burnt rubber, spice
DETAILS: Said to smell like a broken down motorcycle in the desert, in our rendition of the popular oud fragrance, warm and sappy oud wood melds with the scent of a motorcycle, from its leather saddle bags to smell of burnt rubber tires. Soft but with a seductive edge, balanced and lasting, Moto Oud is a robust woody fragrance fit for royalty.
