Rook was the scent created for the creator of Rook fragrances himself and took some convincing to share. The opening is strong and phenolic with a big puff of smokey firewood and birch tar. Sometimes described as dirty/clean as the leathery animalic notes juxtapose a soapy accord at its heart. The base is woody and dark with a warm incense accord and the memory of the smoke that started the journey.
Notes include birch-tar, tobacco, castoreum, cardamom, ginger, civet, agarwood, incense, ambrette, ambergris, guaiac wood, and musk.
- The story of Rook is unique and its roots lie in humble beginnings with the founder and perfumer Nadeem Crowe working as a medical practitioner while also training as an actor at LAMDA. Always a lover of scent and the way scents evoke emotion or have the ability to transport you to a place or time.
