As a way of artistic response to ontological questions and the history of mankind, artist Kentaro Yamada in collaboration with perfumer Euan McCall created Neandertal® Perfume. Neandertal® Perfume imagines the life of this mysterious being while raising questions of the past and future of modern humans. The results are contemporary, highly original, and expe- rimental fragrance structures which are free from conventional and traditional perfumery standards. One a darker, smokier more animalic interpretation of the concept and the other a brighter facet containing higher levels of light, delicate and fresh materials.

Woven through both scents is a hot mineral accord, taking inspiration from the hot flint aroma produced during the knapping process. The resulting accord is an overdose of several high-impact, steroidal odorants against lighter aquatic elements to recreate this sensation.

The Neandertal stoneware perfume bottle is slip cast from a flint knapped hand-axe then fired and vitrified at over 1400°C. Each bottle is handmade by the artist Kentaro Yamada.
