07 Tanoke is the newest in a line of fragrances from Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi of Odin New York. The inspiration for their latest introduction is the Northern California seaside. Resinous air meets warm and woodsy in this lush base of redwood, guaiac wood, patchouli and black musk. Light and slightly spicy top notes merge with a smoky wood heart. It is fresh pine lingering in an interestingly vague smokeyness.
07 Tanoke was selected for W Magazine’s “Top 10 Indie Fragrances”. This is well worth sampling, and very enjoyable.
