1996 - Eau de Parfum
'1996' was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled "Kirsten 1996" taken by the Dutch photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in that year. The fragrance is a true collaboration in every sense as creative director Ben Gorham sought to interpret not only the image itself but the vision and personality of its creators.
“We said, ‘These are the notes that we’ve always been attracted to that come from the different countries we have memories of, this is our house full of warm wood and high end design, this picture represents the duality that underlies our work and our life together, the scent is very much Ben’s impeccable and sensitive interpretation of that “ - Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
1996 opens up the deep green note of juniper berries and a slight spiciness of black pepper. The heart of this fragrance is the warm black amber, lingering with sensual leather and patchouli notes, and a softening vanilla base.
