As if we weren’t already sold on the unique, memory-inspired scents from niche fragrance house Vilhelm Parfumerie, the packaging has us totally obsessed—it actually inspired this whole story! Cleverly arranged text creates a uniform look for each box, but the repeating patterns are actually formed from the names of the specific fragrances, meaning each box is unique to the scent.


BYREDO Cassis Candle / BYREDO Fig Candle / BYREDO Prune Candle

Founded in Stockholm by Ben Gorham, Byredo’s bold-yet-understated aesthetic suits the modern minimalism the city is known for. The limited edition candle collection consists of fig, prune, and cassis-inspired scents housed in wintery frosted glass featuring the pretty seasonal fruit on the box.

Cire Trudon

CIRE TRUDON Spiritus Sancti Room Spray

Malin + Goetz’s unfussy, modern skincare philosophy is reflected in their packaging.

ODIN NEW YORK Milieu Rosa Eau de Parfum – 100ml / ODIN NEW YORK Vert Reseda Eau de Parfum / ODIN NEW YORK Efflora Eau de Parfum

Last year Odin New York launched their White Line, a collection of three floral-based scents.

The relief-life sculptural element of the packaging make this the perfect gift for those who appreciate a beautiful scent and art piece.
