Cold incense and woods burning in the distance of a frozen modern terrain. Targa harnesses earth's primal smoke and restructures it to feel fresh and contemporary in our ever-evolving world.

Targa opens with bright bergamot, green peppercorn, and Indian frankincense, giving the fragrance an unexpected lightness like the spark of a flame. Choya Loban, a much smokier derivative of frankincense, coupled with cade and rare, highly prized Omani frankincense create an ancient, palatial smoke accord. Teak, cedarwood, and cypress give the fragrance a brisk, boreal quality, while smoky Guaiacwood, leathery oud, aged oak, and smooth sandalwood strike a dark, deep accord of woods. Fleeting traces of exquisite helichrysum, Davana, and geranium enhance the fragrance with a very subtle shade of color, anchored with enticing notes of nagarmotha.
After being a diehard fan of Pipebomb Intense, I decided to try something new. I am super in love with Targa. A little goes a long way with this scent.
Targa is my all time favorite scent to wear. I'll never wear anything else, so I hope Blackbird never discontinued making it.
Targa Eau de Parfum is the perfect blend of smoky with just a hint of sweet. I love how complex the scent is, and TBH, I wish I'd bought a bigger bottle. I know this is not a scent I'll ever get tired of.
Overpowering, almost intolerable. I used to think it smelled like campfire (some years ago when I first bought Taiga), but I’m convinced the formula has changed because I don’t like it at all anymore.
My fav type of fragrances for men is smoky scents and this is definitely one of my top scents in that category.
