Introducing Neandertal, a scent created by friend of Bedouin, Kentaro Yamada.
Most of the natural ingredients can be found across the regions of Eurasia, Western Europe, Central China, East and South West Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean; areas now understood to have been active Neandertal habitation zones. The oils suspended within the final fragrance are of the highest quality, be they natural, isolate or of synthetic origin.
After many modifications and a year of refining, perfumer and the artist arrived at two themes. One, a darker, smokier more animalistic interpretation of the concept and another brighter facet of the theme containing higher levels of lighter, delicate and fresher 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.
