Founded in 2004 by Nicole Miller, BLACKBIRD first gained worldwide recognition as a menswear store specializing in progressive, lesser-known brands that bridged the categories of fashion and lifestyle. Seeing success in retail, BLACKBIRD created an in-house label and in 2013, the company shuttered its stores to focus on its burgeoning line of products. Today, the brand is known internationally for unconventional and remarkable fragrances and grooming products, including its new incense and perfume offerings for Fall/Winter 2014. Featuring some of the more unique and creative scents on the market, highlights include the distinctive, icy Triton Eau de Parfum, the incense and saltwater-driven Pipe Bomb fragrance and the minimalist Mizuchi Perfume, which contains surprising notes of ink, paper, mild tobacco and dry woods. Also of note are BLACKBIRD’s new incense pyres — all of which combine similarly-intriguing scent notes in tins of 20 incense cones each. Perfect as gifts or personal use at home during the holidays, BLACKBIRD’s Fall/Winter 2014 incense and perfumes are available now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
