Neandertal Us Perfume 30ml

Neandertal is a conceptual perfume that transcends time and space.

Neandertal us™ explores human history through universal olfactory profiles that exist across many cultures. 

 

Neandertal us invites self-reflection: What makes us who we are? What cultural patterns did we create for ourselves over the course of history? Neandertal us is a universal celebration of life; a distillation of our collective journey to what we know now as modern human.

 

A familiar yet contemporary fragrance, Neandertal us contains spices, greens, and fruits foraged from natural environments used throughout history for ceremonies, remedies, culinary purposes and perfumery. Deeper, smokier tones such as vetiver, sandalwood, oud, and musk create a well-rooted familiarity and sense of security, while a citric and green woody profile creates energy within the formula.

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.
