Home to merchants and misfits, Beatniks and Bohemians, dissidents and protesters, Christopher Street has established a reputation for celebrating rugged and rebellious individualism. Like the unique architecture of the street’s triangular-shaped Northern Dispensary, Christopher Street introduces a distinctive fragrance structure that challenges traditional olfactive notions of gender. Unlike unisex fragrances that target a lowest common denominator (i.e. choosing the least offensive, neutered ingredients for formulation), Christopher Street revels in the unexpected harmonies of its strong masculine and feminine notes. The fragrance combines classical floral chypre elements with more subversive tones of metals, smoky tobacco, watered down alcohol, wet woods and clove.
Christopher Street is created in collaboration with perfumer Ralf Schwieger of Mane USA.
