COLD CAVE x BLACKBIRD - DEATH
SCENT NOTES: leather, sage, marble dust, oud, a cold cave
After the success of the COLD CAVE x Blackbird incense collaborations, we grew obsessed with the idea of turning the DEATH incense into a black perfume. We are happy to announce that DEATH is here. Inspired by Wesley Eisold's vision, we created an original and evocative scent that is both romantic and emblematic of all things Death.
Black is the night is the death of the day. Leather is the skin we are imprisoned in. Marble is the stone in which we immortalize our souls. Sage is the ritual in which we cleanse, heal and begin again.
WARNING: This fragrance contains black dye and will stain clothing. Please wear all black to avoid this and most problems.
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 email@example.com 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?
Q: How can I sell Blackbird products in my store?
A: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiry.
It smells very heavy of sage, but is cold and definitely cavey. I ordered the sample and have been impatiently waiting for my big bottle to show up It is my now go to scent, but I can definitely understand it may not be for everyone.
This is a sage-heavy punch, initially. I am such a big fan of the incense Lone, and I thought it was going to be mossy like that (I was basing this assumption on absolutely nothing). It's not. I love the wet mineral notes. Will certainly be buying again.
There are no words to describe my love for this scent. It smells like heaven on earth, but in a cave. I can’t tell you what notes I’m picking up on but it’s just so good. Great projection and longevity. Side note: I will say that I haven’t experienced any staining.
As others have mentioned, there is the industrial undertone that keeps me coming back, this time intertwined with a bit of witchcraft and knowledge of things beyond heaven and earth. Tinges of smoke and hygge. A clean slate to work from.
One of my favorite scents I’ve encountered. Incorporating more black clothing into my wardrobe so I can wear this more often.
