KINSKI the fragrance is a richly decadent, textured scent produced under license from Kinski Productions, to mark the 20th anniversary of the legendary actor’s death. Effervescent notes of cassis and juniper provide an uplifting contrast to the dark notes of madness evidenced in castoreum, smoky vetiver and dark woods. The image of Kinski portraying Count Dracula in Werner Herzog’s expressionistic cinematic masterpiece Nosferatu The Vampyre emerges, as the heady notes of blood-red wine rises from the dusty, dirt floors of an unlit cellar. Dry herbs crackle softly as they crumble in hand. Salty oceanic notes reveal themselves in the heart, inspired by Kinski’s love of the sea. The animalic and woody base of the composition reflects Kinski’s almost feral sensuality.
The simple and bold graphic design of the bottle hints at an essence of fragmentation, echoing the actor’s famously splintered personality. Utterly unique and complex, KINSKI ignites an obscure passion in the wearer.
