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 spicy woods. Freetrapper recalls the sportsmanship and cut throat business of the gentleman’s game of trapping. Incense is diffuse, illuminated by bergamot. Bitter orange is bitter and totally refreshing, keeping Freetrapper afloat. Cedar and snakeroot are taut and dry; cedar’s smoky-sweetness is a balm that soothes while snakeroot’s otherwise unmitigated bitter bite. Osmanthus is a soothing texture, like the infinitely lush pile of a freshly harvested pelt. Amberwood is a conflagration of saline refreshment and dense, dulcet woods. Sandalwood is dry, light and powdery a buffer before fatty castoreum, which follows shortly hereafter. The illuminating intensity of bitter orange and sandalwood keep this animal-thick scent from sinking, while Freetrapper retains it’s feral freedom. Self-assured, this creamy, medium-light masculine scent is both comforting and challenging.
