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.

The Beautiful Mind Series Vol. 2:
Precision & Grace

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.
