Valerie Garnuch-Mentzel created fragrance that conveyed the shine of aldehydes and a gentle feeling of musk. “It feels like wearing a freshly washed cotton blouse against the skin. The magic reaction of the skin and the fabric triggers a sensual feeling that I have expressed in a spicy, warm ambery chord with a touch of patchouli,” she explained.
Alix Miral translated her inspiration of skirts combined with black tops and tights, into a mixture of incense, musk, benzoin and Tonka beans—reminiscent of the richness, volume and darkness of the skirt and its fabric. The Everlasting Flower encloses the fragrance in a veil of spicy warmth. At the heart of the fragrance is a touch of licorice that stands for the color black, and in the top note, a hint of rhubarb brings an element of surprise with its contrast of a sweet pink accent and an aggressive green facet.
Of the event, Markus Schiek, managing director international of drom Fragrances said, “[W]e have been working with the Fashion & Design Academy for a long time. The exchange of ideas between the two creative worlds expands everyone’s horizons.”
