Broken Glass speaks to stereotypes of what is acceptable behavior for women. Sometimes the only solution is to break a world to build a new one.

     Q: How do I burn an incense pyre?          

    A: First find a heatproof, non-flammable container such as a seashell, clay bowl, a rock or a device designed to burn incense cones. Place the cone in or on the container and light the tip of the cone with a lighter or match. Allow cone to burn for 10 to 15 seconds until a red ember is visible and then blow out. Your cone should smoke and continue to burn on its own. If it does not stay lit, try again.

     Q: How long will a cone of incense scent my room?         

    A: Many hours depending upon your room size, ventilation such as AC or drafts. For larger rooms, burn two or three cones at once.

     Q: My incense cone didn't burn to the end. What do I do?              

    A: First off, some mysteries of science and chemistry are never to be solved. Beyond that here are some helpful hints and tips. #1 Fire requires air. Try placing your cones on sand, salt or dry non-flammable soil to increase circulation. Also, try blowing on the cone a bit in the beginning to build up a larger ember #2 Made sure your cones didn't get wet or think about if the air is very humid. Water prevents fire. #3 Relight the cone. You can do this by holding the cone with tweezers for safety while you are lighting. #4 Break off the tip of a new cone. Sometimes the cone needs a larger ember to get started in life and to stay burning. #6 Don't let the flame run too long or too short before blowing out the cone. #7 Email info@blackbird.black for help.

     Q: Which of your scents are for men and which are for women?        

    A: We believe that scent is a personal expression of your individuality and it's truly up to the individual to select scents that are right for them based on their skin type and personal preference. This is one of the main reasons that we offer all of our scents in sample sizes for purchase.

    Q: Why can't I smell my Pipe Bomb Perfume?         

    A: Pipe Bomb contains so few molecules that the nose may become anosmic to the scent. Read more about it here.

    Q: My bottle of Pipe Bomb has white crystals around the sprayer. Is it defective?       

    A: Pipe Bomb is what is called a "molecule perfume". One of the molecules it contains starts out in the crystal form before being diluted with alcohol. When the alcohol dries down the crystals go back to their solid state. You can wipe down the crystals with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.

     Q: Where can I smell your incense and perfume in person?      

    A: You can either purchase an incense sampler pack or the Eau de Parfum sampler mix. Or you can check our retailer page for a local vendor near you.

    Q: How can I sell Blackbird products in my store? 

    A: Contact wholesale@blackbirdballard.com for inquiry.

    Unique

    Scent notes of jasmine, geranium and rose are some of my favorites for warmer months. However, this fragrance is unlike any other I've applied -- the initial scent is indescribable and 2-4 hrs later, it's something totally different but very unique. You need to apply. then WAIT for the final scent. I first applied at the end of the day when my skin was dry (usually apply to damp/wet skin) and the scent was overpowering to the point that I wanted to shower. Glad I didn't because when I awoke, it was something totally new. Everyone should try to see if it's compatible.

    Stinky

    I didn’t care at all for this scent. It made my room smell like burned plastic or wires. I couldn’t remove the stench fast enough with fans or ceiling fan. Disgusting.

    Surprisingly delightful

    I accidentally bought this during the seconds sale (thought I was buying incense). At first, I was really unsure of this scent but now I absolutely love it. It opens with the smell of Campari and vanilla then turns into geranium. It’s a smell that is both floral and woody, almost weedy. It settles into a calmer, powdery floral, but it’s not sweet or cloying. I’m not sure there’s a strong silage, but there is longevity and shapeshifting the whole day, which is why I enjoy it so much. It’s particularly pleasing if you seek novelty in your scent. It literally changes the whole day.

    I kinda like Broken Glass. I kinda dislike Y06-S

    I find Broken Glass very deep with that flowery/woody heart note. And the head note is powerful. I am not so sure about Y06-S, the banana smell is quite original, I guess, but I am not sure if I like the persistence of the fruit smell. For the incense, I almost burned an entire canister of Malus, so love it. But I have not burned yet the other scents, maybe Muru and/or Izba in a past sample collection, but I can't remember. What I remember though is how beautiful the scent of Free People was. That would be great to have that scent available again.

    My second order

    I haven't finished the first order, but I bought this one as a backup, in case BLACKBIRD discontinues the fragrance. It's my second favorite, after PipeBomb, which I don't like taking through Airport Security (not cool to joke about danger on airplanes). It's unique when compared to the standard "Walgreen's Top Shelf" colognes, and seems to draw compliments from medical tech people in particular.
