A touch of bergamot opens Birch, soothes the spicy notes and brings sensuality and softness. However, this fragrance is all about the rich, gentle wood notes such as guaiac, with a hint of pink pepper providing the nuance and the final kick.
Birch is a family cabin tucked away in the arctic tundra, where a campfire is burning under the midnight sun and tomorrow is a million kilometers away. While she was working on her latest fragrance creation, Birch, Maack moved to her family's wooden hut, a refuge hidden in the Icelandic highlands. Originally built by her grandfather in the 50s, she spent most of her summertime there as a child, breathing in the scent of the birch trees that surround the hut.
ANDREA MAACK, by Icelandic artist Andrea Maack, was born through a series of fragrance art exhibitions and launched with an art installation titled "Eau de Parfum". All fragrances in the collection have been developed with a unique artistic approach using the highest quality raw materials and embody elements of Maack's travels, artistic explorations and her deep relationship with her home country Iceland. Approaching the world of perfumery with a fresh vision, the visual artist works closely with outstanding perfumers, including some well-known noses like Alienore Massente, Celine Ripert and Julien Rasquinet.
