Black No 1 (Rosewood + Suede)


- +
Top notes of bergamot and grassy vetiver give this fragrance a green aura. As the citrus opening fades, rich earthy notes of tree moss, juniper and rosewood stand out over the complex and sexy base of black pepper, warm suede and tonka followed by subtle hints of smoky resin.
The fragrance is bright, but also somehow deep, dark and mysterious. You can see why we thought it perfectly paired with Type O Negative and Peter Steele.

Very strong with the suede

Black No. 1 instantly drowns my thoughts with images of Peter and other great men I would love to smell while running my fingers through their hair. Hahaha! Gotta love the suede in cologne type oils. I gave this to someone I look forward to kissing and smelling often. 💃🏻

“This candle smells like a big, strong man!”

That’s what my sister-in-law said when she smelled this candle. She knew nothing of Type O Negative, the song, the band, nothing.

So, I would say that Burk & Hare Co nailed it with this one! It’s absolutely intoxicating!

Ultimate goth candle

If I'm ever in a particularly gothic mood, this is my go to!

Absolutely amazing scent

The Black No 1 candle smells so nice i find myself sniffing it randomly during the day. I have no idea what Peter Steele actually smelled like but from now i will assume it was like this lol

Note, this is definitely what i would consider a very masculine scent and while i adore the candle, i didn't like the body oil on me. If I should ever find a guy i would like to be close enough to to smell, i will give it to him lol

If you're an obsessed Peter Steele fan, like many of us are, and you ever wondered what he smelled like, THIS IS IT! This candle captures a strength of nature and seduction that could only be Peter Steele. Literally amazing!

There is just something about this scent... I have one open near my bed and every night as I climb in bed I freeze as my nose goes “what is that?!”. Catches me by surprise every time. It is so sexy...but in a way my adult self finds timeless. I want to never not be smelling it. Just ordered the perfume oil, I’m gonna smell amazing.
