Dramatic but totally in control. New sunglasses make you seductively bold. You do exactly what you want.

Throwback to brighter days. Not necessary. But sometimes you need to pinch yourself.
Pierre Guillaume is the Frenchman who never stops impressing. While already toting a variety of brands in his entrepreneurial luggage, he founded the French perfume brand Phaedon. Starting point: a fascination with Mediterranean cultures. Result: amazing, spot on scents that make us weak at the knees. Verveine Figuier, from 2012, is a fresh mix of distinct verbena, fruity fig tree and even its leaves. Crispy, simple and striking.

Summer evening with a bite. Fantasy becomes reality. Soon there.
Sweden's hottest scent export, Agonist, creates perfumes inspired by Scandinavian nature, culture and design.
