Ingredients from all over the world has [sic] been composed through a clean and light nordic approach. The result is a woody, fresh and very unique energetic scent." With orange zest, pink pepper, juniper, cedar, black pepper, incense, cypress, thyme, cypriol, woody amber, candied orange and vetiver. In 50 ml Eau de Parfum, €125 at Agonist.
Nordic Noir ~ "Nordic Noir is a scented tribute to the artistic mystery and beauty of the dark and cold season of the north. The art that grows under the great dark blue skies and the harsh conditions that influence the way we work. The Nordic Noir olfactive pyramid takes its inspiration from hope, longing and light in a sophisticated composition with a woody base of cedar and sandalwood, a heart of orris, mint and fresh ginger roots and it all begins with a captivating top of cardamom and rosemary. The cold Scandinavia has never smelt so good." Additional notes include spearmint, heliotrope, vanilla and musk. $195 for 50 ml at Luckyscent.
