Neandertal® | For modern human.
The Neandertal project was inspired by the history of Neandertal, who mysteriously disappeared from earth around 30,000 years ago. They are often thought to be wild and animal-like beings, but recent discoveries have proven their highly intelligent life and sophistication. Neandertals painted geometric shapes as cave paintings before humans, used musical instruments and very likely spoke their own language. Neandertal perfume is designed for the contemporary Neandertal. It reflects their life in the past as well as the sophisticated future they never had the chance to see. The two unisex fragrances were created by Scottish perfumer Euan McCall, inspired by an invention of what a Neandertal’s essence might have been today, should they have evolved alongside us. Ingredients such as musk and amber, natural to their environments, are combined with fresher tones compounding into a mixture of sophisticated olfactory palettes wearable by today’s humans.

For modern human

Neandertal® is a conceptual perfume that transcends time and space.

The two unisex fragrances are the speculative embodiment of the now extinct human; Neandertal. Beings that live on within our DNA. Neandertal dark™ and Neandertal light™ offer a sophisticated and complex mixture of scents with materials natural to their environments. The perfume contains fresher tones blended with innovative aromatic materials, distillates and natural isolates compounding into a mixture of olfactory palettes wearable by today’s modern humans.

“Neandertal dark is a bit more the strong, silent type than Neandertal light, and pretty satisfying. Perfumer Euan McCall did a craggily poetic job of composing these fragrances in a North European stone, lichen, and sea-spray idiom.”

“Perfumer did the logical thing with the marine animalic base of dark and slapped a huge rose on top, in the grand Arab manner, to give a high-contrast and altogether beautiful composition reminiscent of Edouard Fléchier’s Une Rose (Frédéric Malle, 2003) but with less woody-amber.”
