Andrea Maack is a well known Icelandic visual artist and fragrance house which was born through a series of art exhibitions. In 2009 Maack founded the company in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik. Her perfumes are elegant fragrances that are created as an extension to her other creations and designs. The unisex collection of fragrances have been developed with an artistic approach, using the highest quality raw materials. She uses pen and mixed media drawings to form the base for her artworks, which unites with fashion and plays with the concept of wearable art. Her visual art is the inspiration for her fragrance concept, that she developed in Grasse, France, in close cooperation with a team while she got used to the best raw materials. Her perfumes are contemporary, smart and always surprising. Every scent is elegantly packed in a minimalistic styled box that contains an exclusive drawing. Every 50 ml bottle has a tactile cap of ''HI-MACS natural acrylic stone'' made of high-quality material.
