Amarok Extrait de Parfum : Legendary Lupine of Inuit Folklore

I’ve long been wanting to pay homage to some homegrown, “American” aromatic stories.

Earlier this year Katana had reached out to me and pitched a unique collaboration. In the bulk of my current portfolio of work, I work to capture “Time & Place” – this felt like a perfect opportunity to tell the story of an ancient tale of the Inuit Peoples of North America.

An Amarok is a gigantic wolf in Inuit folklore, said to stalk and devour any person foolish enough to hunt alone at night. Unlike wolves who hunt in packs, Amaroks hunt alone.

Many of us artists are like an Amarok … individuals hunting compelling aromatic stories to tell. In this story – Katana Amarok and Phoenix Amarok hunt together 🐺

In his book Tales and Traditions of the Eskimo, Rink recounts several folk legends that feature the Amarok.

In one tale, a persecuted and physically stunted boy seeks to increase his strength. When he calls out to the Lord of Strength, an Amarok appears and wrestles him to the ground with its tail. This causes a number of small bones to fall from the boy’s body. The Amarok tells the boy that the bones had prevented his growth; he instructs the boy to return daily in order to develop his strength. After several days of wrestling with the amarok, the boy is strong enough to overcome three large bears, thus gaining him the esteem of his village.

@therisingphoenixperfumery and @katanaparfums are proud to present to you the scent of the stalking Amarok.
