Berlin the city of sin. A fetish is a magical object or an object of desire. For this creation J.F Schwarzlose combines the heritage of traditional perfumery with the inspiration of contemporary Berlin. An amazing creation.
Berlin, City of Sin – Leather is a fetish – a fetish is a magical object or an object of desire. The Berlin fetish scene also inspired Leder 6.
Leder 6 is a fragrance based on the old classic J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin “Spanisch Leder”. The new creation of perfumes brings the traditional character of the early composition of 1921 to the Modern Age. The wild background note of incense and Styrax Japanese resin represent the evil eroticism of the old days.
With the sensual leather and saffron flower on the top note, Leder 6 combines the traditions of fragrance production with the wild Berlin nights of today. The instinctive element, which never lets the capital sleep, is found in the animal and leathery character of the fragrance. The gently enveloping heart note of milk and pure vanilla surprises: As in many of J.F.’s perfumes. Schwarzlose Berlin, the heart of the fragrance is an exciting element. It complements the first impression of the fragrance and awakens warmth and sensuality. Leder 6 is therefore a dark and sensual fragrance from which its mystery cannot escape.

Man and Woman
Veronique Nyberg is a perfumer who began as a chemist with a doctorate in Organic Chemistry for International Fragrances and Flavors in Netherlands and has since become a perfumer in their Paris Fine Fragrance department. She was born in the Alps of Switzerland and attended the IFF Perfume School in Grasse, France. In 2000 she was employed by IFF as a chemist and worked there as senior perfumer for 15 years. In September 2014 she was named as the vice president of creation, fine fragrance for Mane.
Her educational background combined with her delicate character explains the diverse sources of inspiration she turns to when it comes to the creation of fragrances. From chemistry to art, nature, and history, Veronique Nyberg uses all her creativity and knowledge to come up with some of the best-selling formulas in the perfume industry today.
As with most of the worldwide notable perfumers, she also hides the roots of her passion for perfumes in her childhood memories. The small village in the Alps, where she was born, together with her grandmother’s knowledge on botany made the perfect mix that let the love of Veronique to wild flowers and natural scents flourish into what’s today a true mastery in the perfume creation.
Here’s how she explains the creation of a new fragrance: “It is a real challenge! In fact, you need to give yourself enough freedom to come out with an interesting idea while working within the reality of a brief. As a perfumer, I’m always pushing outside boundaries and then using my imagination to translate my ideas for the concept, the brand, the market… You may think limits are hurdles, but sometimes you get the greatest ideas because you have to find a solution. Total freedom can be a nightmare…”
