The Beautiful Mind series, a project from perfumer Geza Schoen, will debut in January with the launch of Intelligence & Fantasy, a new fragrance created in collaboration with Christiane Stenger, who at 12 was the youngest person to be awarded the title of Grandmaster of Memory (she is now 22):
The goal was a scent that would appeal to head and heart, by connecting the mobility of the mind with the depth of memory. “An ode to summer and its memories,” is Schoen’s description. “A refreshing sparkle followed by tropic flowers, luscious woods and musk.”
[...] A fragrance that celebrates the life of the mind with a lush appeal to the senses may seem a little paradoxical on the surface, but that in itself is perfectly in keeping with Geza Schoen’s ethos. Besides, he declares, “The Beautiful Mind is meant to remind us that a smart woman is a sexy woman.”
The notes include magnolia, bergamot, mandarin, pink pepper, freesia, osmanthus, rose, hedione, tiare absolute, cedar, musk, sandalwood and cashmeran.
The Beautiful Mind Intelligence & Fantasy will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette, and is available now for pre-order (with free shipping) at Aedes, $200. (via aedes)
