The darker, more shadowed version of Neandertal. A scent of movement that challenges perfumery conventions.
The top note structure of Neandertal dark comprises leafy, aromatic and textural sensations, symbolic of nature; trees, plants, flowers and citrus fruits.
Initially, pepper berries and incense clash against this delicate foliage accord, pushing, pulling and in time combining to create a transgressive and original iodine profile as Neandertal dark evolves.
Sandalwood and cedar provide a durable foundation for Neandertal dark. The inclusion of oud and leather adds unusual animalic depth and resinous shadow.
Earthy rhizome materials reintroduce the familiar green facets in a darker manner. An accord comprising vetiver, patchouli and musk is offset against amber bringing both vibrancy and richness to Neandertal dark.
Each bottle is handmade by the artist Kentaro Yamada.
