Let’s get to know it.

« Beaver trappers were the cowboys of early America. Renegade mountaineers of the Jacksonian era who cut trails through the wild in search of beaver pelts – prized by hatters, doctors, & perfumers. »

The result is what looks on paper to be a dark, aromatic and animalic scent featuring notes of dark cedar, snake root, synthetic beaver castor, and wild bergamot.

The snake root note draws on the lore of Snakeroot (Aristolochia serpentaria) a poisonous plant used, as its name indicates, as a traditional antidote for snake bites. Its scent is said to be a bit camphoraceous.
