Cosmic Incense, HOOHAA x HARRY
After a sell-out launch of our first HOOHAA Editions fragrance, Cosmic Incense returns!
Originally planned as a limited edition launch, and featured in our December 2021 drop, we knew we had our hands on something special with Cosmic Incense, but we didn't think it would be as popular as it was. So we couldn't deny you of the good stuff any longer.
Cosmic Incense is the first of a range of HOOHAA Editions, created in collaboration with London-based Harry Sherwood; one of the most anticipated perfumers in the UK, having interned for master perfumers including Sarah McCartney (4160Tuesdays). His style balances philosophy, science and experimentation.
Whilst studying philosophy Harry learnt that most sensory studies and research carried out by academics focussed more on sight than smell which fuelled him further to explore the olfactory and ultimately led to his passion for fragrance. Harry has previously worked on projects with Google for the launch of Pixel Smartphone to create nostalgic scents. He also worked with the company Too Good To Go, whereby he recreated gone-off smells for scratch 'n' sniff sticker labels for everyday food items that regularly go to waste due to 'best before' signs.
HOOHAA's very own perfume curator Brooke came across Harry whilst he was interning for Sarah McCartney and was instantly drawn to his passion, creativeness and intelligent way of working with fragrance. Harry mentions that he never usually releases the perfumes that he creates due to his perfectionist ways.
Perfume's deepest roots go back to incense, used throughout history in ceremonies and rituals in the hope that whispered prayers would ascend to the heavens. Cosmic Incense is a 21st-century representation of just that. Gentle scents of raspberry, pink pepper bedewed with a dusting of delicate sugarplum dance over patchouli and sandalwood in a swirl of olibanum and elemi, both of which were specially chosen by Harry for their multifaceted character, brightness and depth.
