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.

Escentric 04

Escentric 04 is a unique and very distinctive interpretation of sandalwood that is not heavily woody; instead, it is lifted in the headnote through the addition of zesty, bitter pink grapefruit peel, juniper and pink pepper. A hint of marihuana emphasises the soft aromas of grapefruit. At the heart, iris (orris) blossoms alongside a new rose accord composed by Geza Schön. Escentric 04 fades to the balsamic-woody note of Javanol and the slightly sweeter sandalwood molecule Polysantol.

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.

Top: Bergamot | Cardamom | Lemon | Coriander | Juniper
Heart: Ginger | Magnolia | Jasmine | Osmanthus | Water Lily | Orris | Violet
Base: Benzoin | Styrax | Labdanum | Vetiver | Cedar Wood | 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.

Top: Juniper | Bergamot | Davana | Cassis
Heart: Rose | Magnolia | Freesie | Osmanthus | Peach | Plum | Myrrh
Base: Sandalwood | Cedar Wood | Patchouli | Labdanum | Musk | Amber | Moss | Benzoin | Castoreum

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.”

Top: Cannabis | Aldehyde | Bergamot | Junipers
Heart: Nutmeg | Rose | Magnolia | Maritime notes | Hedione | Castoreum
Base: Patchouli | Vetiver | Cedarwood | Styrax resin | Benzoin resin | Labdanum | Buckskin | Musk | Amber
