a unisex natural perfume
Skive is a collaboration between natural perfumer J.Hannah Co. and leatherworker Canoe. The musky amber-rich scent captures the essence of Canoe’s sun-drenched studio, animalistic with hints of freshly brewed tea. Skive includes ancient oils with aromatic qualities of fresh turned earth, campfires, old wooden cabinets, and dried tea leaves. Named after the process of skiving leather – thinning the backside of a piece of leather with a knife. This unisex blend is created in small batches in San Francisco, CA.

art & olfaction 2015 winner
Skive was named a 2015 Art and Olfaction Award winner in the Independent category. Here's an excerpt from final judge and perfume expert Luca Turin, who reviewed Skive for Style.com:
"The fragrance was spectacularly spot on: bitter, smoky, rich, warm, dry, and with what I can only describe as a personality, a soul that you would love to meet and befriend."
