About Surfer Rosa

Handmade and certified vegan.  Inspired by The Pixies.

Before Doolittle there was Surfer Rosa, an album of heat and brightness. The album was played on repeat and became a beacon of light through good times and bad. This fragrance was created to match the intensity of the album.  The rose is a woody floral and easily finds its complement with wood notes. Rose combines with geranium, rosewood, tuberose, and cistus (rock rose) to form an attar of roses that can only be described as gigantic. Smoky woods are married to this attar to produce an oriental fragrance of unique depth and character.

Reviews of Surfer Rosa

There is one review of Surfer Rosa.
So far, I have realized that this house has a signature accord to all the frags I have sampled thus far. A dark, smoked, woody, almost varnish-like accord. It appears almost always, upon first sprays. It is most noticeable at the beginning, then other notes move in. This one, Surfer Rosa, is no exception...

Slowly tho', some pungent florals emerge, blending with a somewhat medicinal, green line of a note. Rose sings in the background as a bigger variety of mixed woods emerge.

In time, the whole thing winds down as a gritty, rose-oud perfume. A very Good, rose-oud.

It mellows out later, turning into a make-up style rose accord, with just the gentlest of wood. One of the better ones, by this house.
