Charenton Macerations – Christopher Street
"Out of the bottle, and into the streets..."
Home to merchants and misfits, Beatniks and Bohemians, dissidents and protesters, the West Village’s infamous Christopher Street has established a reputation for celebrating rugged and rebellious individualism. Like the unique architecture of the street’s Northern Dispensary, Christopher Street introduces a distinctive fragrance structure that challenges traditional olfactive notions of gender. Unlike unisex fragrances that target a lowest common denominator, Christopher Street revels in the unexpected harmonies of its strong masculine and feminine notes. The fragrance combines classical floral chypre elements with more subversive tones of metals, smoky tobacco, watered down alcohol, wet woods and clove. Every bottle of Christopher Street is hand filled, rolled in leather, and packed in patchouli.
Christopher Street is created in collaboration with perfumer Ralf Schwieger of Mane USA. Charenton Macerations is honored to have Christopher Street named a 2014 Art and Olfaction Awards Finalist in the Independent Category.
