AGONIST is a Swedish perfumebrand launched in 2008. Today AGONIST is regarded as one of the most sought after and unique brands within the international niche market of perfumes. With a distinct focus on details, artistic expression and raw material AGONIST creates unisex fragrances in collaboration with renowned perfumers based on natural ingredients.
AGONIST is founded by the creative couple Christine and Niclas Lydeen. Christine has a background in fashion and studied at Studio Bercot in Paris where she due to her french roots lived and worked before moving back to Sweden where she met Niclas, an Art Director and visual artist. Together they realized their dream of working artistically with fragrance.
By constant travelling around the world, from the tundra of Kazakhstan to the pulse of New York, the couple interprets their impressions through their unique Scandinavian point of view from their home and atelier in the Swedish Archipelago.
