Over the last few years one of our favorite candlemakers, Cire Trudon, has been expanding their olfactory offerings, much to our delight.
We would like to present to you a new collaboration between Undercover and the scent-maker Mad et Len. As you probably know we hold both in high regard, so we are particularly giddy about this one. This type of a collab is after our own hearts, done between people who hold each other in high regard and who decided to take advantage of each other’s talents and push the boundaries of their respective creative senses.
The vibe of this home fragrance capsule is minimal – it consists of three essential products, the candle, the potpourri, and the room spray. You can see the product descriptions below. The distribution on this is quite limited – for now you can only buy them at the Undercover flagship in Aoyama in Tokyo, and soon at the Mad et Len boutique in Paris. But we will update you once the stuff hits stateside, including our own e-commerce store.
If you are a regular follower of StyleZeitgeist, you may have noticed our love for the French candlemaker Cire Trudon.
Earlier this month Comme des Garçons added two scents to its already formidable fragrances library, Odeur du Théâtre du Châtelet and Copper.
It’s no secret that the current niche fragrance market is in great shape.
In a time when we are inundated with seemingly endless collaborations, it takes us by surprise when we are able to announce something worthwhile.
Wesley Eisold, the founder of the band Cold Cave, and the Seattle-based store-turned-perfumer Blackbird have worked together to release two new incense scents, “LOVE” and “DEATH,” to coincide with the anniversary shows for Cold Cave releases, Love Comes Close and Death Comes Close, taking place befittingly on February 14th (Valentine’s Day) and February 15th (Wesley Eisold’s birthday). The sold out concerts will take place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.
As you may have noticed, here at StyleZeitgeist we are comfortable with both modernism and tradition, as long as it’s done well. And so it should come as no surprise that in the olfactory world, we love Cire Trudon’s golden crest on handmade Italian glass vessels of their storied candles as much as we love say the black iron cylinders of Mad et Len’s earthy odors.
Here is our annual gift guide for 2017.
In 2004, there was a fashion design house neatly tucked away in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, which also ran a retail store.
As you may have gathered we are always intrigued by cross-cultural conversations between fashion and other disciplines. But we recently came across one originated by a perfumer. It was from the French brand Liquides Imaginaires, whose author, Philippe Di Méo, teamed up with three ballet dancers and Julien Benhamou, Paris National Opera’s photographer to make a short film inspired by the Charles Baudelaire poem “Elevation.”
