A note from Nadeem: Rook was the scent I created for myself and with a little convincing decided to share. The opening is strong and phenolic with a big puff of smokey firewood and birch tar. I sometimes describe this scent as dirty/clean as the leathery animalic notes juxtapose a soapy accord at its heart. The base is woody and dark with a warm incense accord and the memory of the smoke that started the journey.
Why not try a sample of this scent with the Rook Perfumes Discovery Set (opens in a separate window).
