The SS19 collection is created in collaboration with the Panton family granting a rare permission to use and adapt the scale and colourways of his designs. The collection creates a fusion between the intensity of Panton colour and muted workwear. Colorful aesthetic is used as a fresh take on Dries Van Noten menswear wardrobe.

An explanatory label is sewn into garments details the collaboration that emphasis on a pared down yet elegant masculine silhouette, pushing conceptual codes of the utilitarian, tailoring and sportswear to soften the silhouette.

New perfume brand in Beam

BOTTLE_GROUP_SMALL

Stora Skuggan is a niche perfume brand from Sweden, founded in 2015. The brand is run by a small group of perfumers and designers. All production – from perfume formulation to branding – is done at the Stora Skuggan fragrance studio in Stockholm.

The perfumes are compounded by hand. Stora Skuggan perfumes are based on stories that blur the line between myth and reality. Central to the brand, these tales are conceptualised through scent and art, creating a small universe for each product.

There are three different scents in total in Stora Skuggan selection and they are all now available in our selection. Perfumes are sold in 30ml bottle and the price is 130€. Each has a lovely story behind it:

FDM_SMALL

FANTÔME DE MAULES
FAMILY: FOUGÈRE
CONCENTRATION: EAU DE PARFUM
YEAR OF LAUNCH: 2015
PERFUMER: TOMAS HEMPEL
ORIGIN: SWEDEN

TOP: BERGAMOT, GALBANUM, GREEN LEAVES, LEMON
HEART: BLACK PEPPER, CARDAMOM, CASHMERAN, CORIANDER, FOREST FLOWERS, LAVENDER ABSOLUTE
BASE: AMBROXAN, CEDARWOODS, LABDANUM, OAKMOSS, SANDALWOOD, TONKA BEAN, VETIVER

Fantôme de Maules is a modern take on a fougère, built around the traditional combination of oakmoss and lavender, given width and complexity by spices, amber, green leaves, earthy woods and vetiver.

What is Fantôme de Maules? Who is Fantôme de Maules? The setting: Maules, a small village in the french-speaking part of Switzerland, surrounded by agricultural fields and dense forests. The subject: An enigmatic being, seen by many wandering the local woodlands for the past decade, dressed in nothing but cloaked camouflage and an obsolete mask. Most likely human but one cannot be sure. Looming at almost two meters tall he seems to take particular interest in the surrounding flora and fauna.

Unaware of passersby, he spends his time picking and smelling flowers; only then he lets down his guard. A crack of a twig or the rustle of a leaf and he’ll vanish back into the foliage. The locals call him Le Loyon, but the character calls himself Fantôme de Maules. The ghost of Maules.

So who is Fantôme de Maules? A recluse, an outcast from society who has made a home in the forest? A survivalist preparing for the apocalypse? We will never know, because he doesn’t want us to. And perhaps that’s what makes Fantôme de Maules a character with such a riveting mystery.

The modern world is alight with information and the shadows are shrinking. It is rare to come across someone who doesn’t feel it is necessary to explain himself.

SILPH_SMALL

SILPHIUM
FAMILY: ORIENTAL
AMOUNT: 30ML
CONCENTRATION: EAU DE PARFUM
YEAR OF LAUNCH: 2017
PERFUMERS: OLLE HEMMENDORFF
TOMAS HEMPEL
ORIGIN: SWEDEN

TOP: CISTUS, SILPHIUM ACCORD
HEART: CINNAMON, TOBACCO, GERANIUM, BLACK PEPPER, GINGER, CLOVE
BASE: FRANKINCENSE, CEDARWOOD, MYRRH, LEATHER

Silphium is a warm incense scent inspired by the ancient plant. “Even if one just tastes it, at once arouses a humour throughout the body and has a very healthy aroma” – Pedanius Dioscorides, around year 70 BC. Silphium (probably of the genus Ferula) was a plant that grew in the area of Cyrene, present day Libya, and was widely renowned as a spice, medicinal herb and perfume ingredient throughout the empires of the classical antiquity.

It was praised by Greek philosophers and writers, as well as Roman emperors and cookbook authors. There were many attempts to cultivate Silphium, but they inevitably failed. It would only grow wild in a limited area of the north African coast. This is in combination with its qualities as seasoning and medicine made Silphium the most valuable spice in the world, outshining both saffron and cinnamon. The demand for Silphium eventually became so overwhelming that it was harvested to extinction, and the taste and smell of the once greatest spice in the world was lost in time.

Stora Skuggan rendition of this historical plant is created by researching surviving assumed relatives of Silphium, using aromachemicals (the molecular building blocks of scents) to create an accord that we feel represents what descriptions remains. This is set against a background of ancient incense, woods and leather.

MOONMILK
FAMILY: WOOD
AMOUNT: 30ML
CONCENTRATION: EAU DE PARFUM
YEAR OF LAUNCH: 2017
PERFUMER: TOMAS HEMPEL
ORIGIN: SWEDEN

TOP: BLACK TEA, LIME
HEART: BLACK PEPPER, CARDAMOM, LILY OF THE VALLEY, MANDARIN
BASE: SANDALWOOD (MYSORE), TAN LEATHER

Moonmilk is an alluring sandalwood scent inspired by the moon, caves and ancient northern European medicine. “The famous Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner is considered the founder of modern zoology, but as a true 16th century scientist he was also a prominent physician, botanist, linguist and — of course — spelunking adventurer. In his Descriptio Montis Fracti sive Montis Pilati from 1555, he chronicles his climb to the summit of Mount Pilatus, but we also get to follow him into the caves of the Alps. “At night, the moon shines into the cave so brightly the light itself seems to take form, like a mist.

It gathers in the ceiling and makes the limestone stalactites glitter and gleam, dripping tears of white liquid into puddles on the rock floor that never dries. Moonmilk.” A massive accord of sandalwood makes up nearly half the formula, letting that sacred and alluring scent take center stage. Other notes showcase the different aspects of the multi-faceted wood. Lily-of-the-valley and mandarin bring out the calming smoothness, warmth is boosted by cardamom and lime, while the subtly dry texture of sandalwood is reflected in black tea. A touch of leather provides depth to underline the full body of the wood.
