Chris Collins’ Alchemy of Fragrance is inspired by Harlem’s rich history and relationship with Paris during World War I, and a love letter to its second Renaissance, where culture, literature, fashion, art, food, music and architecture pulse through its veins.
Meet three distinct fragrances that tell the story of a man and the love affair between two treasured locales: Renaissance Man, Danse Sauvage, and Harlem Nights. Discover their classic, dark, and mysterious packaging, with each one housed in an elegant glass flask, similar to those found 1920s Harlem speakeasys (from the copper cap, down to the pump and accents).
“I myself am not a perfumer, I am merely the author of stories, of life’s experiences. This trilogy of fragrances begins the narrative of my scent journey.”
