BLACKBIRD INCENSE

Blackbird Incense pyres are a contemporary update to the ancient tradition of incense burning. Created by our Blackbird perfumers based on perfume concepts, each incense fragrance is unique and unexpected. 

Ai contrasts the bright green herbs and dark mossy soil of our Seattle gardens. Beyond its natural side, this incense has a sophisticated richness that would appropriately scent any palace or igloo.

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.

Izba reminds one of traditional Russian farmhouses with warm wood walls and smoky fireplaces, and the wild herbs and flowers growing outside. The Russian and Arabic word Izba refers to a countryside dwelling that forms the living quarters of a conventional farmstead.

Lone a collection of moss specimens from the damp swampy forests of New Orleans, trapped in a box, individually tagged, identified and accounted for. Bright and alive, damp and ancient. 

Malus is the smell of too much whisky and cigarettes on a musty wool shirt. The smell of a burning building and the damp ashes left behind. The smell of a leather chair whose springs have lost their bounce. The smell of rotting bark from a tree that fell decades before it's time. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and life is too short for perfection.

Mars is a terrestrial incense consisting of imaginary resins and spices from the red planet. Our rovers traverse the rocky terrain searching for signs of alien life within the silica regolith. Mars smells of warm red spicy things with a bright and dusty incense at its core. Believe it or not, our team of Martians hand form every cone in the image of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system.

Muru is a sophisticated and rich, green, woody-earthy fragrance. Burning Muru imparts a foreign, exotic feel to any atmosphere. The name Muru means grass in Estonian.

Ploom is utopian plastic flowers layered over idyllic futurist tobacco smoke. The perfect family in their perfect home where everyone smells beautiful and all secrets are brushed under the rug. Softly dark tobacco blends with bright gardenia and spicy bay for a sensual and provocative accord.

Targa is cold incense and woods burning in the distance of a frozen modern terrain. Targa harnesses earth's primal smoke and restructures it to feel fresh and contemporary in our ever evolving world. 

Tilde provokes primal earth and ancient woods to play alongside the fresh green growth of wild flowers, shrubs and cedar saplings.
