Andrea Maack Craft Eau de Parfum - 50ml
Its 6am on a cold winter morning when the only sound around you is the motor of your warming up car. Sharp aldehydes and frozen metal give this fragrance a cool sophistication and a futuristic feel. Under its icy and metallic top note, a warm and woody heart is waiting to be thawed - a mixture of resinous elemi, earthy patchouli and robust cedar. The Elemi note is a note of incense with undertones of fresh citrus fruits and a hint of salt.
The opening is dominated by aldehydes strung in an icy fashion, leading to a cold metal accord. It's initially jarring, but quickly melds into your senses... After a while, a backbone of clean patchouli and elemi make themselves known, adding a darker and spicier edge, without being too aggressive. The aldehydes still maintain a slightly soapy vibe that randomly erupts over the base notes. It's an abstract composition, that feels quite grounded and carnal at the same time... Made in Iceland.

The Andrea Maack perfume vessels, designed by Milan based Architect Maddalena Casadei took inspiration from Andrea Maack ́s Nordic roots and her body of artwork. Her inspiration came from sculptural shapes in nature, particularly black Obsidian Volcanic rocks found in the Icelandic highlands, focused on clean lines that fit well in the hand, dark in colour and sleek in design.

Andrea Maack is a Scandinavian luxury fragrance house founded by Icelandic visual artist Andrea Maack. All the fragrances in the collection have been developed with a unique artistic approach, inspired originally by Maack's paintings. Concept developed from her exhibition in 2010 where she set out to answer the question: "How do you turn a drawing into a fragrance?" the first perfume of the collection SMART (SMell ART, 2010) was born. The fragrance house is now using the highest quality raw materials and embody elements of Maack's travels, artistic explorations and her profound relationship with her native Iceland.
