At the start of 2015 Kuumba joint forces with Black Scale for a new collaboration. The first time the two had worked together.
Black Scale just like most of Kuumba’s other partners is another streetwear brand but far from your usual brand. Their work is moody / sinister and often features predominately black colorways with dashes of camouflage detailing. A brand which I am a big fan of due to their unique take on streetwear.
I managed to pick up a tube whilst shopping at the Black Scale Tokyo store. At the time I was unaware of the collaboration existing but as soon as saw that Kuumba International logo etched into the lid I had faith in the project.
Little did I know this scent would actually be one of the best I had ever smelt.
The scent is deep and dark which ties in very well with the Black Scale image. It’s a complex but sophisticated concoction. Combining White ginger, Green tea and Black pepper. Wow, what a beautiful mix of unique ingredients. All coming together to make this refreshingly bold winner.
This pack easily slots into my Top 5. It’s unlike any other incense I own but if I had to liken it to any others I would say it has dashes of Agape or Pacific in it. A dark, moody incense ideal for an evening of productivity.
Let’s hope the two work together again in the future!
Scent: Deep, dark, complex.
