Zola Jesus added some major pop dimension to her songwriting on last year’s brightly anthemic Taiga album, prompting critics to brand it her most accessible release to date. Naturally, the gothy Wisconsin-raised singer/songwriter (aka Nika Roza Danilova) upped her pop star game further by releasing a fragrance and incense inspired by the record, whose title means “boreal forest” in Russian.
Accordingly, the coniferous confection smells like firewood, ash, dry moss and minerals and would likely find itself at home in your celebrity scent cabinet somewhere between Sigur Ros’s driftwood-campfire-evoking scented candle and Nicki Minaj’s passionate-love-affair-scented perfume Minajesty.
The scent is available at Zola Jesus merch tables everywhere – e.g., at the Horseshoe on Thursday.
