The eaux de toilette, called Type B, Type C and Type D, are designed to capture the characteristics of each city.

Type B, for Berlin, has a musky black wood, dry note, and reflects the cold, wintry days in former East Berlin.

Type C relates to the designer’s home base and is reminiscent of the salty air experienced during a trip to Trekroner, a fortress at the entrance to Copenhagen harbour.

The spicy and citrus notes in Type D are more reflective of Damascus and capture the ancient marketplace on a hot summer’s day.
