AGONIST is a Swedish perfume house founded by the creative couple Christine and Niclas Lydeen. Christine has a background in fashion and studied at Studio Bercot in Paris, where because of her French roots, she chose to live and work before moving back to Sweden where she later met Niclas, an art director and visual artist. Today AGONIST is regarded as one of the most sought-after, unique brands within the international perfume niche market. The special and dramatic artistic expressions from AGONIST are derived from the beauty of Scandinavian nature and culture. With a distinct focus on details, artistic expression and sustainability, AGONIST creates distinct unisex fragrances based on high-quality ingredients in collaboration with renowned perfumers. A selection of fragrances is artistically expressed in handcrafted Swedish glass flacons in collaboration with the multi-award-winning glass artist Åsa Jungnelius and the internationally renowned glassworks Kosta Boda, situated in the deep forests of Småland, Sweden. AGONIST challenges both the ancient art of perfume making as well as the traditional craft of glassblowing with their remarkable artistic vision. The passion for artistic craftwork and sophisticated essences makes AGONIST a winning combination of fascinating fragrances that become true sculptural objects and collector pieces.
