skaparinn is the first exclusive concept fragrance that brings to you magnificent Iceland.
The beginning of worldly existence, steaming lava meeting eternal ice was the inspiration for the artist Maximilian Moll to invite perfumer Sebastian Reuter to re-create his idea of Iceland’s pure air, fresh water, fire and earth in an exclusive olfactory system.
Under the auspices of Reykjavik’s renowned fashion designer Dúsa and her skaparinn label they developed a range of products based on natural ingredients that will soothe your senses in a superb individual blend reflecting the natural elements found in Iceland.
Based on natural ingredients, skaparinn will soothe your senses in a superb individual blend in a range of products reflecting the natural elements found in Iceland.
A highly individual and exclusive scent for different uses, skaparinn is the personal recreation of the icelandic world of fragrances in the elements of air (perfume for women and men), water (bathsalts and soap) and earth/fire (scented lava candles) and is set to become a classic. It is for the few looking for the extraordinary, as calming and as exciting as the primitive powers of nature itself.
The packaging is accordingly simple and pragmatic so as to protect the fragile system of sensitive natural ingredients from light and other influences.
Skaparinn perfume is conceived as two different scents:
Crisp and fresh, the feminine fragrance unfolds with a hint of jasmin and notes of galbanum, lemon peel and other sensitive floral aspects. In the heart note, nuances of water lily and lily of the valley integrate the green tones with watery ones.
Iris and cedar wood reminisce of lava, bark and lichen and establish the bridge to the earthy and wooden notes of the fonds. Patchouli oil and amber gris elegantly round off this very clear, cool and mystic scent in a deep and warm way.
Fresh air, bergamot, mugwort and a combination of other green herbs in conjunction with the watery nuances are the prelude to this pulsating masculine fragrance. Floral elements of mossflowers and cyclames make up the heart note.
The final accord is elegantly mossy and woody with eastern Indian sandalwood, cedar, oak moss and rooty nuances of vetiver. White leather and precious agarwood give extraordinary warmth and silkiness.
Bath salts and soap
Pure, fresh water is typical of iceland, water from hot springs that soothes the mind and body as well as glacial waters previously frozen for aeons.
skaparinn bath salts and handmade soap are evocative of Iceland’s water. Crystal-clear and deep dark-green notes of ferns and moss accentuate the scents of these care products highlighted by subtle bloomy parts of water lily, and cyclames.
The natural bath salts are pure precious salts and minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium chloride in a combination to transport the minerals and water into the cells, penetrating the membranes to promote vital, moisturized and healthy skin.
The handmade soap is ph-neutral and perfect for sensitive skin
Scented lava candles
Handmade candle in a shell of lava sand.
Steaming lava was the inspiration as well as the beginning of floral life of moss and lichen in the midst of roaring waterfalls set in the smooth ocean winds of the gulf stream to be captured in the exciting scent of this handmade candle.
Conceived of leafy green elements and warm notes of balsamic resin, cedar, ambra and sandalwood, the candle symbolizes the forces of the elements pushing their way to the surface of the earth and creating Iceland.
