With love for the artistic crafts behind both perfumery and glassmaking, AGONIST’s unique combination results in beautiful creations with timeless qualities. With every detail exclusively developed with regard for nature and raw material, AGONIST constitutes an experience larger than a mere fragrance or perception. AGONIST is founded by Christine Gustafsson and Niclas Lydeen – two Swedish designers with a background in Fashion and Visual Communication.
Christine is part french and studied fashion at Studio Bercot in Paris where she lived and also worked at Li Edelkoort before moving back to Sweden meeting up with Art Director Niclas Lydeen who was finishing his Master in visual arts at Gothenburg University. After several successful collaborations they decided to realize their dream of working artistically with fragrance and packaging.
