Black Collection: Agonist

Featured in the Scandinavian MAN Black Collection is Swedish perfume house Agonist, launched 2008 and regarded as one of the most sought-after and unique brands within the international niche market of perfumes. Their unique and dramatic artistic expressions are derived from the beauty of Scandinavian nature and culture.

What’s so unique about Agonist?

– Since our launch we’ve established an international position within the fine fragrance market much thanks to our strong artistic approach and uncompromising focus on details and quality, says founders Niclas and Christine Lydeen. Agonist sells a dream of Scandinavian beauty to the world. We develop not only perfumes but also extreme forms of artistic packaging such as hand-blown glass sculptures, ceramic vases, and artistic collaborations. We develop our collection based on the idea of an ”Invisible Wardrobe”. Each scent corresponds to a certain mood, style, and feeling. Just as you dress according to different situations our scents represent the invisible detail that makes everything come together.

Tell us about the fragrance included in Black Collection.

– Dark Saphir is our bestseller. A unique composition of Oud and woods. It has become known as the ”Power” scent. You know, the scent you wear to make an impression. Very elegant and sophisticated.

And what’s next for you?

– We are launching a new scent for summer that celebrates our 10 year anniversary.
