Created for an art exhibition, the theme for Smart comes from an empty white gallery space. At first it emits substance and intimacy but as you spend more time and delve deeper the visceral moods unravel, revealing the sensual and the seductive. Smart opens with a luxurious line-up of heady jasmine, luscious vanilla, exotic sandalwood and creamy musk blended carefully with a subtle buckskin leather note that holds the white notes in balance.
Violet leaf, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Vanilla, White musk, Buckskin
Originally created for a temporary museum exhibition and never intended to be worn as a personal fragrance the character of Craft is illusive, dynamic and exciting, a fragrance for those who stand out from the crowd. With its icy, metallic opening, the scent deepens in complexity with the introduction of cedarwood in the middle notes, and a base of patchouli that anchors the fragrance in familiar territory.
Aldehydes, Elemi, Cold Metal, Ice, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Black pepper, White pepper
Soft Tension by Andrea Maack is a sensual white musk inspired by a thick mysterious fog. Like a white desert, the fog is a place to get lost in and let go. This fragrance is a bold mix of musks combined with freesia that grounds itself in the skin. Black raw materials are mixed with white ones such as mate absolute, cedar wood and moss creating the soft tension.

DUAL by Andrea Maack is a unisex sport fragrance inspired by the calming water of the natural hot springs in the Icelandic highlands. This fragrance mimics the feeling of fresh water on the skin and the intense color spectrum surrounding the hot spring lagoons.

Coven is the mysterious path of a dark supernatural world, it is a journey into a secret enchanted woodland were nothing is as it seems, smells is wild, untamed and brave. A rich soil tincture kick starts Coven. This lush, metallic note seeps into Oak Moss and mingles with the verdant greens of Galbanum intending to grip you tightly in its spell. Coven is the embodiment of shadowy woodland walk.

The scent of a refuge in nature, a family cabin hidden away in the Arctic Tundra where bonfires burn under the midnight sun and tomorrow is a million miles away. A touch of bergamot introduces Birch, calming down the spicy notes, bringing sensuality and softness. However, this scent is all about the rich, smooth woody notes such as Guaiac, adding a touch of pink pepper for nuance and a final kick.
