Artist Andrea Maack has launched two new fragrances, Silk and Dark. They join Smart, Craft and Sharp, which launched in 2010.
Silk (shown) ~ "SILK feels like a delicate fabric touching the skin. Drawing inspiration from original hand-drawn prints, it is a scent of timeless luxury, paying tribute to French fashion houses with a heritage of silk scarves. The idea of Silk is to enhance the feeling of wearing a perfume - its powdery, airy, earthy, leathery aura makes you imagine a silky smoothness caressing your neck." The notes include violet leaves, freesia, lime tree, linen, magnolia, cistus, earth (ground), papyrus, vanilla and amber.
Dark ~ "DARK is heavily oxidized rose mixed with violets and leather. Its a take on the classic rose note, a bloody, flowery, leathery, seductive perfume with a purpose. The heavy metallic note in the scent brings an unexpected surprise while its animalistic and powdery side suggests certain comfort both reassuring and protective. Dark is a scent with a mind of its own, and it can take you to places you never dreamed of going." Notes feature yellow mandarin, pink pepper, petitgrain, lemon tree, aldehydes, rose, metal, green apple, ambergris, orange blossom and Virginia cedarwood.
Andrea Maack Silk and Dark are available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, €85.
