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.
I bought a bottle of Death after getting a set of Blackbird's perfume samples as a gift for my girlfriend. We were a little skeptical that Death might be a gimmick, owing to the black dye and the fact that it's a collaboration, but it is by far our favorite scent. There is a constantly shifting array of notes that calls to mind at one moment the smell of weed, at another a cold, unfurnished basement, and smoky leather at another. The final note that lingers is warm, spicy, and inviting. I love that I can never quite pin down the scent. There's something very pleasant about this that anyone who has spent a lot of time going to house shows will enjoy. I'd especially love a reformulation without the dye as black's not really my color!
Beautiful darkness <3
I am truly a fan of the Blackbird brand. The scents are some how always surprising and yet comforting as well. The most unique scents I've ever smelt! I got the smoky sampler and this one instantly spoke to me. It's the perfect amount of smokiness with a tinge of sweet and salty. It lasts ALL DAY and so far i have not had an issue with the color staining anything as i spray it on my skin first and let it dry. Other scents I love: pipe bomb og, pipe bomb blue and mizuchi (which is very similar to a scent i loved from tokyo milk that is no longer made - marine sel) I have more samples and a full size of cold cave coming my way and i always appreciate the quick shipping. Can't wait to try them all! Scents that do not work on me- moto oud, y06-s
I purchased the bottle after sampling. This is a beautifully deep smoky sage fragrance, perfect for the winter months.
I don't really have the proper words for how much i love this scent. It starts out Sage heavy and then mellows into something almost ancient
Smells amazing. Love the blackening effect. Shipment was almost TOO fast. Will absolutely order again.
