Amsterdam-based Daily Paper has teamed up with fragrance company Zenology to create a signature scent for the home called Modern Nomad. Rooted in the African backgrounds of the label’s three founders, key notes in the fragrance are Moroccan mint tea, Somali frankincense and Ghanaian cacao.
Speaking on how the collaboration came about, Daily Paper founder Abderrahmane Trabsini, explained, “Scent is such a key part of the whole travel experience for me. I’ve known the brand Zenology for a while.
“We’ve used their Ambiance Trigger in the scent Camellia Sinensis in our own flagship stores and headquarters. After I met Zenology founder and creative director Jeroen Oude, I knew that we needed to do our own fragrance one day, one that would capture the DNA of Daily Paper and felt personal to our individual heritages and identities.
“When we started working on this collaboration, we asked ourselves, ‘What would Daily Paper smell like if it was a scent?’ And now we have our answer.”
Daily Paper fragrances are offered in two sizes, a travel size 70 ml (2.37 ounces) and a larger 300 ml (10.14 ounces) priced at $25 and $65 respectively. Both sizes are not available on dailypaperclothing.com.
