Anat Fritz, a knitwear designeer based in Berlin, launched her eponymous scent in 2006.
Here just five ingredients are used to highlight three notes: vetiver, lavender and cedar to create one of the most captivating scents you’ll ever experience.
Fragrant vetiver is right at the opening – woody, earthy, green and herbaceous. Just as you are enjoying the headiness of it, shy lavender comes up from behind bringing its floral sweetness, tinged with mintyness, and adds a lovely brightness. There’s no going back now and in a way, it would be OK if this were all there was to it, but the lavender has a camphourous facet that leads right to the cedar. At the heart these three notes intermingle, playing off the different aspects of each other on a base of soft sandalwood and earthy patchouli that echo and bolster the vetiver and cedar so that the whole mixture becomes warm, woody and rich.
Five ingredients, five keys to perfume paradise, combined to highlight just three glorious notes: vetiver, lavender and cedar. The notes are familiar but the result is unexpected. Kinda like walking through familiar woods only this time you’re not walking - you’re riding a lavender unicorn.
