Why Initials KS?

Well, first and foremost those are my actual initials.

Secondly I was inspired by a song ‘Initials BB’ (which stands for Brigitte Bardot of course) by Serge Gainsbourg. In this song he sings:

Elle ne porte rien
D’autre qu’un peu
D’essence de Guerlain
Dans les cheveux

I think that this multisensory reference really matches my everyday approach. I’m a musicologist, who works in two different sectors (classical music and coffee) with passion for smells and visuals (films, art). That’s why I collect fragrances that are inspired by operas, like coffee that tastes like flowers and search for perfume references in movies.


Hope you’ll enjoy this somewhat synesthetic journey with me.
