Triple distilled punk rock, bottled at cask strength.
Waking up in the afternoon after a long, alcohol and fag heavy night. How did one actually get home? Film tear.
Then the sinking feeling in your stomach, which tells you that somehow it's probably also better that you don't remember anything.

Rook makes an appearance right at the beginning wearing extremely thick pants. The smell of the overflowing ashtray, which of course no one emptied yesterday in the drunken stupor, is a real slap in the face.

But the bruises heal quickly. After the stinky leather jacket was shipped to the balcony, the oud, incense and musk notes soon come to the fore.
This gives strength for the morning after.

Towards evening then, when the damn hangover finally seems to be cured, Rook is suddenly tame as a lamb and comes along quite pleasant and rather light with its spice compositions.

Only three more hours, then it's back on the slopes.

Past & future
A very pleasant perfume. It is strongly incensed and smoky, with a very powerful birch tar, in the line of perfumes like hyde by Hiram Green, but much more wearable. In addition, the spicy part takes weight off the burning smell, giving it, in my view, a more personal character to the fragrance. The animalistic part produced by the civet, the castoreum and the oud is present throughout the duration of the perfume but always in the fat one, in the distance, without ever being intoxicating. Although it is a very original scent, sometimes it feels classic, like with small bursts that remind me of the typical barber shop scent.
Although I think anyone could use it since it is quite rough I see it perhaps a little more oriented towards the male gender. Due to the type of aroma, I would see it more suitable for cold climates and nights but, since its intensity drops quite a bit after the first minutes, it can be a valid perfume for day to day for those who are looking for a signature perfume with which to differentiate themselves rest. I am looking forward to trying more Nadeem Crowe creations.

A tower of dark tobacco
If you follow the path of the black triangle, you will walk on birch tar, which still boils cool from salty rain, as if somewhere here is the sea. In the grey above you, you will see the dark crows, sailing on sharp wings, sowing soft glow into the sky, singing ginger lights and beaver's horns.
Then you reach a tower made of tobacco, woven from spicy Sumatra, surrounded by a cloud of incense, hesperidically bright and clear. It almost seems as if the tar led to the tower, as if its flanks sparkled black, as if the birch resin gave it its shape, as if the two belonged together. On the ground balsamic amber lamps, sometimes finely fruity wood flickers, then glowing embers of musk and ash, then the lights of resin dim.
If the hours are over, incense and tobacco and traces of birch tar remain, you can assume that guaiac is also present somewhere, since milk burns on the stove. This is a place to linger, to hide, to dream, for crooks who concoct pranks and lovers of spicy tobacco plants that dance as a tower in tar dress with incense.
**
"Rook" (English for tower, crow, crook) thematizes dark tobacco in a consistent, but also extremely pleasant and wearable way. Birch tar and some beaver's horny give edge and dark glow, light incense acts as a soft-drawing counterbalance, musk, resins and woods give the tobacco various additional brown shades and additional depth. "Rook" projects about one hour at arm's length and another six to eight hours at close range, sometimes the warm brown tones, sometimes rather the rugged black dominate.

(With thanks to Yatagan and Scented Man)

Rook is a Smoky but weareable perfume. The spicy part gives to perfume personality and makes It easier to be liked. Slight animalic part.
