"URBAN took 2 years in the making. Lots of planning, mixing, sleepless nights, and reviewing tons of concept ideas. We decided upon the name first and worked around it. I knew from the beginning I wanted something different, something unique, so coming up with the fragrance was the first obstacle we had. I wanted all the scents that I loved in one bottle, but that didn't turn out to be too attractive! Once we had that narrowed down and we had the fragrance I fell in love with, the next challenge was the bottle and the packaging. I think one of the most difficult things an eco-conscious business has to confront is packaging. Everything we do creates an impact on our world, so minimizing that impact while offering a nice looking product was truly difficult to achieve.
As an artist used to creating with my hands, I knew I wanted something unique, so we built the idea for the design based on the URBAN concept. We worked with many materials, recycled papers, metals and stones and the one that really worked was concrete. A square concrete cap and a glass bottle gave the contrast I was looking for a perfume that's unique from its inception. The concrete cap can be used as a candle holder, it looks great as a decorative element, while the bottle and the rest of the components can be recycled or reused.
The idea of the box wasn't as challenging as the design concept of the bottle. The box that encases the beautiful urban looking perfume had to look rustic as well, so the idea of a wine looking box came up.
Really expensive wines are delivered in wood boxes. The bottle inside rests in a bed of hay or wood shred to protect the bottle and maintain a constant temperature. A cardboard box made with 100% recycled paper was the perfect candidate. The inside bed where the bottle rests, is 100% Aspen wood shred.
It took 2 years in the making, but it was so well worth it. I hope you enjoy every drop of it as much as we enjoyed designing it.
