Berlin Im Winter
Berlin Im Winter by Baruti is an intoxicating and charismatic fragrance that aims to evoke intimate and cosy nights by the fire-place. This gripping unisex composition opens with a fresh note of Greek mastic, cushioned by the sweetness of plum, blackcurrant leaf and the booziness of whisky and coffee. A dreamy whisper of rose lurks in the background. Retro in an unmistakably modern way, this fragrance is a rebel who answers to no-one.
Spyros Drosopoulos is a fragrance engineer and is the owner and creator of niche perfume line Baruti. Baruti is the Greek word for “gunpowder”. It is often used to describe someone with an excessive character, bite, or a certain edginess.
Starting with a PhD in neuropsychology with specifications in sleep and memory, Dr. Drosopoulos was intrigued by how the differences in scents can affect our perceptions and memories. Perfumery for Spyros started as a hobby during his research and teaching career. Now with Baruti, he aims to make perfumes where the fragrance is optimized as a medium for wearers to fit the character of the perfume.
Dr. Spyros Drosopoulos is often inspired by music and art when it comes to making perfumes. One of Baruti’s most-talked-about perfume, Tinderer, was also inspired by the song Tinderer by Danish band Under Byen. It is shown evident by how the aromas of the perfume matches with the percussions of the sounds in the song and this creation represents a crisp, dewy morning in a magical forest.
Finally, we would also like to mention that Dr. Drosopoulos, participates in The Art and Olfaction Awards. He serves as a shortlisting judge, in the artisan category.
