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.
Universal Supreme is the absolute freedom of summer. From their website: Inescapable heat, cherry ice pops, absolutely nothing to do (yet so much to do), laying in warm grass watching the stars, hot asphalt, riding bikes, scraped up knees and elbows, screaming without a care in the world and having no idea what time it is.
Universal Supreme features notes of cherry, frankincense, cedar, heliotrope, rose, iris, dry grass, oud, sandalwood, swimming pool and strawberry. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
