Founded in 2008, Swedish perfumery Agonist has quickly become an outstanding and respected name in the world of fine fragrances. Created by Christine and Niclas Lydeen, who approach perfumery as an art form, Agonist specialises in unisex fragrances based on natural and sustainable ingredients, often made in collaboration with renowned perfumers. Rather than using mass-produced containers, the founders wished for the character of each fragrance to be reflected by its bottle, and so teamed up with award-winning glass artist Åsa Jungnelius to create a line of ‘sculptures’ in which to store the scents. The Vanilla Marble fragrance has a sweet scent, with top notes of vanilla, Persian almond and tiaré flower, while the beautiful blown-glass bottle can be refilled and kept for ever.
