Rare, magnificent and auspicious, the albatross bird is the captain of the air. The natural marine accord celebrates that spirit, the fresh coolness of where the ocean meets the sky. Salty Salish Sea breezes meet the soft warm notes of cork, driftwood and cottonwood evoking images of seafaring vessels, creosote-soaked timber, and barnacle covered hulls. Set your sights on the horizon, feel the wind in your sails. Albatross was launched in 2015. The nose behind this fragrance is Christi Meshell.

Albatross Fragrance Reviews

Albatross is a mishmash of some interesting notes, all forming a really neat aquatic. It reminded me ever so slightly of BPAL’s Calico Jack. That one is a little more complicated, though. All the notes listed here are basically discernible and light. They merge virtually perfectly into a very soft, summer scent after an hour or so. Soft, decent longevity, wearable anywhere at anytime.

Very nice, but not sure I’d buy due to the price tag.


I think this makes Aquatics interesting, most tend to be a bit dull, watery and clean, smells like a beach... Albatross goes at it in a different way, it's a lot darker, a lot more complex. There's a huge selection of notes in this from creosote to pine, driftwood to ambergris. Essentially it smells like the cold salty ocean, it's dark ocean, pine trees in the distance, driftwood floating on the waves.. it's cool and refreshing, but dark.. It turns a genre that's very safe and dull into something complex and beautiful, I really enjoy this. Longevity was good on my skin.
With this being an All Natural too, I think it speaks volumes for the quality..
There's nothing cheap about this house, everything is beautifully blended with the best naturals. My favourite house, Christi the perfumer is just an amazing talent.
It's a great summer time fragrance for me, and takes me back to watching the waves crashing over the rocks.


Albatross is a beautiful scent which does not bring to mind the sea for me, but that is only because I'm a midland woman and all we have here is mountains, lakes, rivers and creeks... and dark, deep forests. Albatross does remind me of a pine forest. A lot. It has a fresh air clarity but also a resinous side. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous rendition of a natural theme.

Here's what I smell. I smell mostly pine and a strong peppery note in the opening which to me acts as "blast of fresh air". There is a saltiness but it is a bit more organic than mineral. The driftwood effect is very nicely done. A pine tar note reminds me of creosote, like the website description mentions. I'm only familiar with birch tar which is so much smokier and unforgiving, but pine tar seems to be gentler or maybe it is greatly diluted here. A very soft leathery-charred effect, completely wearable. There is a very delicate "musky" note that anchors the scent, it's a tiny bit "sweet", probably the sappy poplar. I smell a little vetiver and what seems to my nose to be... cumin? I definitely get a cumin scent, but I am not saying there is cumin in this. The scent is nowhere as "wet" as someone would expect, no notes of humidity, damp earth or fungus here, it's really all about the sky high over the sea, where the albatross flies. And they fly pretty darn high, if you've ever seen one!

The scent projects from my arm for about 12 inches and stays that way for an hour or so but I should mention that I have dry skin with no oils at all. Bottle was a gift from a friend who won it in a FB contest.
