Black Anise - a vibrant, smoky amber 
Long-lasting and powerful, a scent for those who want to be remembered.

Black Anise is a statement fragrance - strong, edgy, dramatic and sexy. 

There's a certain expectation that natural perfumes tend to be botanical, subtle scents, and Black Anise really proves that that doesn't have to be the case. It heroes dynamic star anise top notes, a rich blackcurrant and cacao heart and a silky, smokey tobacco dry-down. 

True to Abel’s DNA, it also has an unexpected richness and purity to the heart notes that make it super wearable. And it's Abel's longest-lasting fragrance yet.

Black Anise is a strong and sultry scent that will stop you in your tracks. 

Top: Star Anise
Heart: Black Currant, Cacao 
Base: Tobacco

About Abel

Founded by New Zealander Frances Shoemack, Abel has a simple but inspiring mission - to create the world’s best natural perfume. Working with Sao Paulo-based Master Perfumer Isaac Sinclair (also a New Zealander), Abel crafts all-natural perfumes that are high-end, modern and long-lasting.

Frances, a former winemaker, fell in love with the emerging world of independent perfumery on her travels throughout Europe, but was frustrated to discover that there were no brands focusing on natural products or sustainable and ethical supply chains. Ttied of putting toxic chemicals on her skin, she had the strong belief that there would be other people like her looking for a modern and sophisticated natural perfume.

Frances reached out to Master Perfumer Isaac Sinclair. A New Zealander trained in Paris and Milan and now based in Sao Paulo, Isaac has rapidly made a name for himself in the esteemed world of fine fragrance. The two set out to revolutionise the industry, and prove to the world you could have a natural perfume without the compromises. Together, they have created perfume that is not only 100% natural, but also modern and stands up alongside the world’s best.

They did this by using the best natural science, and sourcing the finest ingredients from around the world.

Abel boasts a retail network across more than thirty countries, including iconic stores such as Galerie Lafayette Paris, Liberty London, Totokaelo New York and Isetan Tokyo. In 2020 the brand came 'home' to New Zealand, establishing its global headquarters in Wellington and putting down roots in the community.

Abel chooses natural ingredients for their olfactory beauty and their therapeutic, mood-enhancing qualities. Most of the fragrance ingredients used in perfumes are synthetic fragrance molecules, and most of these are derived from fossil fuels like crude oil. Abel doesn't use these because they are a nonrenewable resource and they pollute water and air. There also have links to several health concerns - there is a growing body of research that links various synthetic fragrance molecules to skin and respiratory irritation, migraines and asthma attacks, as well as more serious issues including endocrine disruption, potential carcinogen, neurotoxicity and birth defects.
