Handmade sculptures, white plexi glowing cables, and moon rocks will set the stage for Seattle-based fragrance and grooming brand Blackbird's month-long stay at The Voyager Shop starting Friday, February 6th. In addition to the full range of perfumes, soaps, and beard and grooming supplies, Blackbird is also bringing two special, limited edition items along for the ride. The first is a custom incense developed for Voyager, with notes of cinnamon, anise, and rose. It's meant to inspire memories of a warm herbal tea, served inside a hand thrown, modern teacup. The second item is a fragrance and incense, made in collaboration with singer Zola Jesus for her new album Taiga. Stop into the store at the end of the week to celebrate the pop-up's start with food and drinks. If you can't make it then, you'll have a few more weeks to shop the goods—you'll just have to hope the limited edition scents are still around.
