Christopher Shannon

The inspiration: Memories of his childhood and teen years in Liverpool – the sulphuric odour of the factories, the smell of busy streets and a hint of citrus from freshly scrubbed homes.

/L

/L (pronounced: Slash L) stands for Luxury, lust and longing. The secret of the fragrance lies in its luxurious extravagance: /L is hypnotic, it aims to seduce, perhaps even be a little addictive. Unencumbered luxury!

SILVER

SILVER is highly reflective, and this characteristic is perfectly embodied in the fragrance: light, cool, sharp. The fresh tang of bergamot and lemon in the headnote is melded to a sensuous and captivating accord of coriander, cardamom, ginger and lily; above this floats a delicate haze of vetiver, cedarwood with a hint of musk.

GOLD

A warm, sweet and feminine scent. A sublime cocktail of magnolia, juniper and ambergris provides a foundation for slightly bitter moss and a hint of patchouli. GOLD perfectly captures the density and the warm glow of the precious metal, and combines it with a gentle fruity sweetness.

Message in a Bottle

Open the bottle …release the soft, salty wind, on which the fresh floral notes of neroli and gardenia are carried. As your senses follow these flowers of purity, they lead you to a heart that is more sensual. At the heart of this paradise lies the jasmine and lust, giving way to an exotic ylang, orange flower concrete, skin-soft apricot flower and a light velvety rose. Further still into paradise, and the message turns to the delicate warmth of woods and amber. Cistus and civet, create a longer lasting testament to the pleasures of this message.

Devil in Disguise

The scent of Devil in Disguise means that something dangerous and sensual is in the air – like a heavy summer wind caressing crimson silk. The fatal attraction of rhubarb leaves combine with fascinating magnolia to violate the senses before plunging them down into a mysterious, dark maelstrom.

Kinski Fragrance

Kinski Fragrance is a decadent and yet structured fragrance. The head note intoxicates with cassis, juniper and castoreum; the heart beats with oceanic notes inspired by Kinski’s love of the sea, while the base conjures up feral sensuality with animalic and woody notes.

The fragrance was created by the Berlin-based perfumer Geza Schön: “The ingredients are a reflection Kinski’s lifestyle: excessive, exuberant, debauched – and yet sensual. I instantly thought of something animalic, dirty…yet also something clean, innocent. A fragrance that is ambivalent as Kinski’s personality.”
