Slumberhouse Sova was originally released in 2012 and took a hiatus and is now back in limited availability. Created by Josh Lobb, Sova is an amber fougere, inspired by autumn and sap and woods and tobacco fields warmed by an autumn sunset.  Comfort and warmth.  For me, personally, this is the smell of all of my days growing up on the farm, curled up in the loft of the hay barn, reading a book with all the sweet, chaotic smells of the world swirling around me.

Notes of sweet clover, beeswax, poplar, genet flower, golden grain, hops, hay and tobacco. This is the extrait.

Josh Lobb is a self-taught perfumer out or Portland, Oregon, who has an incredible instinct for creation and construction of notes.  They describe their brand as "Slumberhouse is a boutique cologne label in the heart of Portland, OR; created and inspired by urban and street culture, art, film and music – especially the new school of hiphop and graffiti artists. We are a group of young gents who march to our own beat, embracing an absolute disregard for other brands, trends and marketing cliches. Slumberhouse represents an unequivocal love for the art of fragrance making. 


Reviews of Slumberhouse Sova

Take One Thing Off - "For those of you who don’t know what Slumberhouse Sova smells like, it smells like this: boozy hops, pipe tobacco, sweet green resins, piles of damp hay laid out to dry in the sun, broom, honey smeared over everything, licorice,  vanilla, amber, dirt, cocoa butter, beeswax, and the pure, warm animal growl of castoreum. It smells like a rural fantasy of a childhood spent rolling around in a hayfield, lazy bees humming in the background, backlit against a haze of smoke and sugar."

Fragrantica - "Sova reminds me of one of my favorite stories as a child, a book I read to rags - Little House in the Big Woods. Specifically Sova is the smell of the loft where Mary and Laura play in the long cold winter. The dusty woodsy smell of the rough planed floor, the smoky scent of cured meat and woodsmoke, dried herbs and grasses. Ma made a gingercake yesterday and the scent still pervades the house. It’s cozy, safe and snug. The smell of a world that makes sense. Wearing this affects me on an almost spiritual level. It cocoons me in a bubble of peace and simplicity. The world outside is as chaotic, noisy and needlessly complicated as ever but inside, I am still."

Basenotes - "Sova reminds me of the most delicious part of gingerbread, the scorched edges where sweetness gives way to smokiness. Lutens might have built a gingerbread house. Slumberhouse burns it down."
