Neandertal light - Neandertal®
The two unisex fragrances are the speculative embodiment of the now extinct human; Neandertal. Beings that live on within our DNA. Neandertal dark an 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 light is in stark contrast to Neandertal dark, a journey which explores concepts of olfactory dissonance.

Radiant and expansive Neandertal light concentrates on the present and as such, possesses a linear and harmonious structure.

Hinoki oil is expanded with muted green notes creating a horizontal landscape, an olfactory still-life representation of nature.

The binding quality of orris gives Neandertal light rigidity, form and cohesiveness within the structure. This binding quality produces a powerful resulting force, encapsulating time and the space around us.

Leather and ambergris add unparalleled natural beauty and familiarity, displaying both power and magnetism.

A contemporary portrait of the Neandertal mystery, this fragrance captures a suspended snapshot in time.

How the Neandertal Trial-Based Returns Policy works:

  5. Open the section titled “1 try” to receive your complimentary sample of Neandertal fragrance. This sample is yours to keep and does not need to be returned.
  6. If, after trying the sample, you would like to return the 90ml porcelain bottle, do not open the portion titled “2 buy”, which contains the handmade porcelain Neandertal hand-axe.
