I wrote about the Seattle-based business Blackbird last winter, when I posted a review of their incense cones (which are still favorites of mine). At the time, none of their personal fragrances really captured my fancy; the names were memorable and provocative (Tinderbox, Pipe Bomb), but the actual scents just didn't fit my personal taste. But you just never know: Triton is the latest release from Blackbird, and I've been happily wearing my sample for the past few days.
Triton includes notes of violet leaf, iris root, cedar, aldehyde, incense, mimosa, carrot seed, dry amber, vetiver, styrax and black pepper. It was "named after the moon of Neptune that was in turn named after the son of Poseidon," and "its scent carries the nose to the icy surface of its namesake moon. . . . It’s about finding and relishing the beauty of a frozen landscape." It's a tricky fragrance to classify: I'd call it a unisex mineral-earthy-woody scent.
