Neandertal Light concentrates on the present. It’s an expansive and radiant creation. It is linear and harmoniously structured at the same time.
Inspired by nature in all its authenticity, Light is composed of hinoki oil and green notes. Light is transparent and mineral, an olfactory still-life of nature. Light is a perfume that intrigues and it’s hard to resist. The metal accord in combination with iris gives Light a soft glare. Nuances of leather and amber give the fragrance a magnetic and powerful presence. Light is a perfume that is both minimalistic and mysterious.
The glass bottle was made using 3D printing techniques resulting in this unique design.

Neandertal was founded by the Japanese artist Kentaro Yamada in 2018. His love for design makes this unique brand a strong visual character, which is reflected in the powerful design language of the brand. Yamada started a creative collaboration with perfumers and together they research how perfumes can make the echoes of our past tangible. The results are contemporary, highly original, and experimental fragrance structures, free from conventional and traditional perfume standards.
In Dark and Light (2018) we see an exploration into the scented world that surrounded our Neandertal ancestors. The presentation in the beautifully handcrafted porcelain flasks shows Yamada's background as a sculpture and is a reference to prehistoric flint axes from Norfolk, England. Each bottle is equipped with an NFC chip, numbered, and can be traced with the Neandertal app.
Us en Them (2020) explores the tension between different cultures and is presented in sculptural 3D printed glass bottles. Them is also available as a scented candle, in a very decorative handmade porcelain holder.
