HOW IT WEARS
Ceramic opens green and fresh with dewy foliage, crisp apple and freesia, before quickly developing to reveal the clean, fresh, white florals and lily of the valley. The purple florals, musk and amber give the fragrance a powdery clean and comforting edge evocative of clean linen. Perfect for every day or night wear, Ceramic will last 6-8 hours on the skin, hugging it softly with its subtle projection.
We love how easy Ceramic is to wear, it’s clean and fresh yet also a little powdery which makes it so familiar and comforting. To us, it evokes the texture of clay before it’s been fired on a pottery wheel – a fine clay like porcelain that’s smooth and earthy in your hands, soft, mouldable and slick. If you’re a lover of clean musks with a smooth, skin-like feel, this fragrance is for you!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Andrea Maack is a Scandinavian luxury fragrance house founded by Icelandic visual artist Andrea Maack.
What started as a series of art exhibitions using scent as a medium has now grown into one of the most sought after and unique brands within the international niche market of perfumes.
The collection of unisex fragrances has been developed with an artistic approach, using the highest quality raw materials, drawing inspiration from Maack’s travels, artistic explorations, and her relationship with her beloved homeland, Iceland.
When the artist first embarked upon her scent journey she posed the question, how do you turn a drawing into a fragrance? It is a mysterious process, by all accounts. Do fragrances have colours? Andrea Maack says they do. Can a fragrance designed to complement a specific artwork stand on its own as a composition? Even without seeing the artwork, these are complex, well-made scents that tell a story.
The striking black bottle and box were designed in collaboration with architect Maddalena Casadei, inspired by the obsidian volcanic rocks found in the Icelandic highlands, with graphic design by art director Tommaso Garner, who interpreted Maack’s original paintings.
