An opulent, sophisticated scent that blends floral, spicy, and warm, creamy notes. The rose provides a delicate floral essence, while the saffron adds a hint of spiciness. The suede gives the fragrance a rich and velvety depth, and the tonka bean contributes a warm, sweet, and slightly nutty aroma.

Fragrance family: Chypre floral parfum, concentration of 25%

Top: Lemon oil, Pepper oil Black Madagascar, Incense
Middle: Rose, Myrrh, Saffron
Base: Patchouli oil, Tonka bean, Suede

Magma begins with a bang – the zing of the lemon accented by the sharpness of black pepper and the smoke of incense. The warmth of saffron and resinous myrrh then begin to soften the top notes, beckoning in the velvety floral note of rose. The dry down centers the earthy yet softly sweet patchouli and tonka, which are then grounded by the suede note which adds depth and aids the fragrance in sticking to the skin for 8-10 hours. 

We love how evocative Magma is – while it is inspired by a volcanic explosion, we imagine this as half-cooled semi-molten magma after the eruption – stoney, slightly smoky, and just hardened on the top, but glowing and warm below the surface. That’s kind of how the fragrance behaves on the skin too – the sharp spice on the top is the crust of the magma and the middle and base notes take you to its radiant, hot lava centre. 

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.
