How many perfumes could take the ripe smells of bananas and soft fruit, combine them with damp earth and musks, and transform them into something stunningly memorable? One of most unusual, wildly creative perfumes of recent years, Bat has attracted widespread notice for perfumer Ellen Covey’s original, quirky take on the winged night creature.
Rather than go predictably goth, Bat takes us on a nocturnal flight across a tropical wetland and into its shadowy, stony habitat. A lush fig note cuts through tropical vegetation as the banana and fruit notes of the opening begin to meld with the tropical plants, creating weird and wonderful sweet and rooty dark notes. In the base, layered animalic musks partner with thick black leather, bringing Bat back into the depths of its cave. For lovers of the unusual and daring, Bat beckons you to its lair.
