Branches lay bare against a grey sky. The gaiety of summer has given way to doldrums of fall, and as winter settles in, flocks take flight, like guests from a dwindling party. But one pair of revellers lingers on, he in crimson finery, she in demure tones. Among tattered streamers of copper leaves, they warble a merry duet. Around the cardinals' nest, tinsel icicles may have replaced vibrant blooms of roses, but as they feast on scarlet berries that dot the snowy landscape, this feathered brood's festive spirit refuses to be chilled. Zoologist Northern Cardinal combines the invigorating scents of bergamot, rose and rich hints of leather. Tart green notes entwine with handsome undertones to encircle you in a subtle wreath of fragrance. Cloak yourself in this warm, cheerful perfume, a spark of joy on a bleak winter day.

A traditional fragrance in every sense – Northern Cardinal is a spectacular display and relies on a traditional masculine structure where citrus shifts to a mossy aromatic base. A great well-groomed and well-dressed fragrance to suit a variety of occasions.

Made in Canada

We all know Northern Cardinal’s style one way or another, which assembles and arranges a fine complex of ingredients, producing a masculine chypre effect. A beautiful blast of green notes are revivified by generous and sharp citrus notes in the opening, infused with the tender soft virtues of clary sage, with its distinctive herbal and balsamic breath. This is complete with just enough rose to add vastness to the composition, and a discernible floral freshness which grows as this fragrance develops.

All of this rapidly fuses with Northern Cardinal’s dark heart, consisting of leather, oakmoss, and patchouli. It is this trio which recalls the giants of masculine perfumery, which emphasises a captivating bitterness against an earthy floor, brightened with the sparks of the top notes. It is this tension which defines an entire category – a stylistics – which has an inimitable shape and curvature. It is at once robust yet plush, generous yet reserved. It demonstrates good form and allows it to speak for itself. Every note matters in this fragrance, repeating a central green theme dominated by patchouli, vibrating between the earth and the sky, like the perfume’s namesake bird, with a freshness recalling mint, geranium, roses, and camphor-tinged air, against darker impressions of leather, tobacco, and even bitter dark chocolate. Reprieve arrives in the form of musk with the boozy, darker side of vanilla, never losing sight of this leathery aromatic heart.
