A luxurious extract, Solstice is a fresh and invigorating scent, combining the juicy sweetness of watermelon with the crisp and refreshing notes of aqua.
This light, soft musk transports you back to summers spent at the beach. Juicy natural watermelon at heart with a hint of lily of a valley giving a soft touch, while being an aquatic fragrance at the core.

The experience: Nordic Summer
The surprising contrast: Sweet watermelon with an Amber base
Fragrance family: Sweet and aquatic, concentration of 25%

Top: Watermelon, Marin Accord
Middle: Jasmine, Violet, Muguet
Base: Ambermor, Sinfonide

Julien Rasquinet

Solstice begins with the juicy freshness of watermelon accented by the marine accord which adds a little saltiness to the fragrance. The florals add just a touch of sweetness which ripens the watermelon, the whole scent amplified by the musky molecular base notes. This fragrance has incredible projection and lasting power, sticking to the skin for 8+ hours!

We love this modern interpretation of a fruity scent – we don’t usually see watermelon as the star of fruity scents either, so Solstice is doubly unique! This isn’t a candy-watermelon, it’s a just-ripe watermelon, crisp and fresh, with just a touch of bitterness from the rind in there, like eating watermelon on the beach with the brisk, salty sea air blowing in your hair. Uplifting, fun and fresh! 

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.
