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. Masculine and medium bodied this animalic scent is cut with considerable citrus, and a subtle dose of spicy woods, so that thoughts of dead rodents never sullies one’s mind. Instead, Freetrapper memorializes the fantastic bravery, sportsmanship and ruthlessness inherent to the business of trapping, with only a well-balanced wiff of the beast as a grounding force.
Incense throws a diffuse, cobweb net that glitters with bergamot’s rich tang. Bitter orange sluices through this initial gauzy effect, and establishes the bitter, refreshing bite that keeps this fragrance buoyant throughout. Dark cedar and snakeroot reiterate these lean, terse tones; cedar is ever so slightly smoky-sweet, while snakeroot’s bite is unbridled and poison-sharp. Osmanthus is the first installment of soft, silken textures, it’s acidic yet floral gracefulness combatting the blow of the preceding notes. Amberwood is a molten pillar that’s both self-contained and magnetic, a potent element that refracts other notes through its golden trunk. Santal adds a touch of dry, green powder to Freetrapper, a safeguard that absorbs the oleaginous castoreum that follows.
Bright, insistent accents keep yet this fundamentally thick scent from growing to gross proportions, so that in the end, Freetrapper communicates the hard-scrabble existence of it’s namesake more than the luxuriant textures of fresh fur. Confident and unswerving, yet utterly adaptable, Freetrapper is an accomplished, storied scent.
