We wanted to create something with an edge for those who don’t do sweet. After weeks of aromatic experimentation we found the perfect balance in five aromatics that provide the right amount of intrigue.
Top: Birch tar, tobacco
Middle: Castoreum, cardamom, ginger, civet, agarwood
Base: Incense, ambrette, ambergris, guaiac wood and musk
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).
