This deep, captivating and quirky fragrance for him or her celebrates the hippie movement and counterculture. Just like John and Yoko’s bed-ins in Amsterdam and Montreal, as well as the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, Purple Haze sets the ambience for 19-69
This smooth, warm woody-spicy scent for him or her was inspired by the colourful and creative party scene of Marrakesh during the 1960s and 1970s. It blends comforting amber and sandalwood with a taste of white honey.
This rich, sexy scent for him or her is evocative of the 1980s glamrock era in L.A. and the music scent and lifestyle of the U.S. West Coast during the 1960s and 1970s. It reflects elements of sun, blue skies and the warm glow that is L.A.
L’Air Barbès is a cold, light and fresh scent for him or her that is a tribute to the city of Paris, capital de la mode. Evocative of Paris’ different personas such as concrete alleyways, le banlieue and the area of Barbès – Rochechouart.
This lively woody scent for him or her was inspired by the Summer of Love and the hippie trails of the 1960s. Ideas on the next hotspot or music festival were shared within the hippie community by The Invisible Post.
19-69 La Habana is an aromatic-smoky scent for him or her based on a sailor’s reminiscence of Cuba before the revolution. The scent shines a light on the island’s golden musical era between the 1930s and 1950s.
