Patchouli, Woody Notes
J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin – 20|20
The 20|20 fragrance celebrates the centennial of Berlin’s Golden 1920s – a legendary era of glam, excess and irreverence – internationally known as The Roaring Twenties. Pure Hippie-Patchouli encounters the cool, velvety freshness of Rose and Geranium and is eventually warmed by sumptuous woody notes. 20|20 is the contemporary interpretation of the 1920s spirit and Berlin’s cult perfume of the time, ?CHIC’, created by SCHWARZLOSE in 1920. It is the smell of extravagant glamour and excess – reinvented for the 2020s and today’s fragrance lovers of generations X, Y & Z.
Olfactory inspiration for 20I20 was the Schwarzlose classic CHIC, the legendary perfume of the 1920s. Its mixture of spicy patchouli with velvety sweetness was a sensation at the time. The original formula of CHIC was derived through a complex process from perfume residues of archived original 1920s bottles. Based on this, Schwarzlose perfumer Véronique Nyberg (MANE) reinterpreted the original formula with a similar range of ingredients as a sparkling feel-good scent for the 2020s.
