‘1996’ was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled ‘Kirsten 1996’ taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in that year. The model’s face juxtaposes an almost otherworldly innocence with a dark sense of knowing beauty; her berry stained lips suggest a double life but do not reveal - yet she seems transported by her experience, which is the aim of every perfumer!
The fragrance is a true collaboration in every sense as Ben sought to interpret not only the image itself but the vision and personality of it creators. “We said, ‘These are the notes that we’ve always been attracted to that come from the different countries we have memories of, this is our house full of warm wood and high end design, this picture represents the duality that underlies our work and our life together, the scent is very much Ben’s impeccable and sensitive interpretation of that “- Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
