Gazing upwards into the wide blue yonder has inspired creativity in we tiny specks of beings for millennia; the galaxies and our enduring quest to explore them giving rise to myths, legends of the Gods and then incredible scientific discoveries that make us dizzy with knowing.
Fragrance is no exception, with many perfumers having been inspired by stars and the solar system, and now the ultra cool Swedish design duo behind AGONIST making their mark in the celestial scent map with the launch of Blue North.
Paying tribute to the icy beauty of the cold Northern season, AGONIST invite you to lift your eyes to the skies and imagine sleeping wrapped in a snug duvet but with your bedroom windows flung open (as Nordics do) being woken by the tickle of a bracing breeze on dark mornings.
A truly soaring fragrance composed of icy-tipped spices and frosty woods, we love the fragrantly herbaceous opening of cardamom and rosemary nestled in iris, awakened by spearmint, mint and ginger, invigorated by joyous heliotrope and soothed on a base of cedar, sandalwood, vanilla and musk.
You’ll have a chance to smell the new fragrance, and better yet meet Christine and Niclas Lydeen – the founders of AGONIST – during our exclusive event at London’s emporium of cool: The Shop at Bluebird, Chelsea. Join us for an evening of fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into one of the top niche fragrance houses. Smell perfumes, sip fizz, browse the incredible selection at Bluebird and leave with a fab goody bag courtesy of AGONIST. What’s not to like…?
Thursday 28th January (this week) discover what inspires them to create such beautiful pieces of perfume art, the story behind the couple, their personal perfume-passions and much, much more…
Book your place now – we’d love to star-gaze (and sniff) with you!
