Swedish Perfume House, AGONIST release new scent for Summer – FLORALUST






This season welcomes the launch of the first floral fragrance created by Agonist. A voluptuous fragrance that joins an eleven perfume collection by the Swedish fragrance house. The typical Scandinavian touch is evident in the body notes, energizing and catchy.

An olfactory journey through the scents of nature, dominated by the queen of all flowers: the rose. Ethereal as the summer breeze, with a bit of bite at the end that pulls you into an elegant floral vortex. They dream of surprising, flowering again like nature in the springtime, overt femininity is reconciled with the freedom of expression. FLORALUST celebrates a renewed spontaneity, light but not frivolous, and of course striking. An invisible flower bouquet to be gifted with grace.

And to do that, Niclas and Christine Lydeen have relied on Intertrade’s perfumers to build their own personal language of flowers.
These include jasmine, tenacious yet delicate at the same time. The essence of attraction encapsulated into this floral scent.

“When all the flowers are blossoming- our cloud of fragrance aims to capture that moment, using very precious and rare ingredients such as, for example, freesia and ylang ylang, the most feminine aromas par excellence. Also starring cardamom, pink pepper, musk and bergamot for a fresh cocktail that recalls a journey into the wilderness. Just as it would be like to visit the remote corners of Scandinavian landscapes. Nature and our local environment are always our first source of inspiration and driving force in the creation of our fragrances,” comments Niclas and Christine Lydeen.

The scent is also enclosed in a special box with themed artwork designed and conceived by the creative duo. A limited edition handmade ceramic vase decorated with the Floralust pattern has been produced in collaboration with a Japanese/Swedish up-and-coming artist Masayoshi Oya from Studio Oyama.
