The Art of Scent is a completely new concept dreamt up by Nordic company – Agonist. The idea behind the premise is to create pure 100% natural fragrances, inspired by the Nordic climate and culture, but to then envelope them in beautifully sculptured glasswork. The company work in close collaboration with prominent perfumers, unique Eau de Parfums are created according to the traditional art of fine perfumery. The fragrances are then artistically sculptured in handcrafted Swedish glass created in collaboration with glassartist Āsa Jungnelius at Kosta Boda.
With love for the artistic crafts behind both perfumery and glassmaking, AGONIST’s unique combination results in beautiful creations with timeless qualities. The fragrances are complimented by the artistic sculpture in which they are housed. And although they are not the cheapest perfumes on the market, the bottles can certainly be classed as miniature works of art. We’d be a little happier if they were refillable however, in the meantime, here is the complete range:
