No creature is alike, and yet we are all the same – created of the same substance, with equal rights, of equal value and importance. This is the message of GESCHÖPF by Atelier PMP from Hamburg. At the same time, GESCHÖPF pays homage to the uniqueness of each human being: we are all our own creations and are entitled to choose our own identity. The noses behind GESCHÖPF are Mark Buxton and David Chieze; they describe GESCHÖPF as a subtle fragrance that “oscillates between a deep, clear truth, the freshness of figs, heat and incense.”

Dreckig bleiben means hanging out with your best friends in your oldest but cosiest tracking pants, down by the river, in the warmth of a campfire. Your feet in the sand and a glass of wine in your hand. No suits, no high heels, no white shirts, no patent-leather shoes. Not playing a role, just being yourself. No decorum, no shenanigans. I am who I am. And the next day I’m going to crawl out of bed, happy and satisfied, with the scent of the night and the bonfire still hanging on me. It doesn’t come better than that.

Internationally-fêted ballet dancer, Polina Semionova, is Schoen’s creative partner for the second fragrance in The Beautiful Mind Series: Precision & Grace translates the special mental strengh of a ballet dancer into an unique fragrance.
The fragrance is balanced between uplifting fruity notes and powdery florals. “I wanted to have pear and plum because they remind me of summer in the Russian countryside of my childhood,” says Semionova. The top note of Williams pear springs out of the bottle with its crisp, juicy greenness. The heart of the fragrance is an unusual fruity-floral accord of Egyptian jasmine with plum. Harmonising with this key accord are airy florals such as mimosa, freesia and osmanthus. The drydown is warm and velvety, based on woods and musks. Schoen’s signature of schinus molle, or pink pepper, also features.
