Blackbird was first an award winning menswear store that opened in 2004 in Seattle. Nicole Miller, its founder and creative director, brought Blackbird to new heights in 2013 when she decided to focus on distributing the Blackbird brand internationally and closed her stores. Today Blackbird is known worldwide for its unconventional and remarkable fragrances and grooming products.
Aaron Way, lead perfumer at Blackbird, described the process of creating these unique scents as coming up with an abstract concept before any notes are discussed. Using a few rare or unusual ingredients ensures that their creations are both beautiful and distinct.
Pipebomb starts very quiet and takes about ten minutes for the fuse to burn down. Synthesized with the finest raw materials, it moves from note to note within its composition, dazzling with each move. Like an underwater firecracker wrapped with incense, light saltwater notes meld with hot metal. Pipebomb features notes of saltwater, metal and amber. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
