Eau de parfum
50 ml

1996 er inspirert av et fotografi av en ung jente, med navnet "Kirsten 1996" som ble tatt av Inez van Lamsweerde og Vinoodh Matadin nettopp i 1996.
Duften er et ekte samarbeid mellom Ben Gorham og fotografparet, der han ville formidle ikke bare fotografiet i seg selv, men visjonen og personligheten til fotografparet.
Leiligheten til Inez & Vinoodh i New York består av mye varmt treverk, lær, og designerprodukter.
Duften skal derfor også minne om duften som naturlig finnes i hjemmet deres.

1996 åpner med en dyp grønn note av einebær og en krydret peppernote. Hjertet i duften er den varme sorte amberen med sensuelle lærnoter og patchouli, samt en myk vaniljebase.

Av duftlys kan vi anbefale Ambre Japonais eller Bohemia

1996 was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled Kirsten 1996 taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in that year. The fragrance is a true collaboration in every sense as Creative Director Ben Gorham sought to interpret not only the image itself but the vision and personality of its creators. “We said, ‘These are the notes that we’ve always been attracted to that come from the different countries we have memories of, this is our house full of warm wood and high end design, this picture represents the duality that underlies our work and our life together, the scent is very much Ben’s impeccable and sensitive interpretation of that.” – Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

Opening with the icy, deep green beauty of juniper berries, 1996 indeed transports the wearer to another plane and, like the image, combines polar opposites, as the Northern Hemisphere gives way to creamy orris and soft, slightly flirtatious violets. The soul of this fragrance is a warm, almost viscous black amber, it’s deep cognac rapture envelops the wearer and time stands still for just a moment until the journey concludes in the softly-sensual leather and patchouli of the Orient. 

Each box is decorated with a Kirsten 1996 photograph.
