"Post-industrial Manchester in the ‘80s: crumbling warehouses and railway arches –and an urge for experimentation. Suddenly, everything came together: the beats, the dance, the substances. The very hub around which everything revolved was, arguably, Factory Records and extended into their groundbreaking club – The Haçienda. The legendary record label merged talent from the realms of music, art and films to create one of the most significant, and last, youth movements of the 20th century. Perhaps you even own one of those faded black T-shirts bearing the renowned cover art from Unknown Pleasures, the first album by Joy Division or the best-selling 12” single of all time, Blue Monday by New Order. Iconic bands such as Happy Mondays and Stone Roses also rose to fame and Manchester became ‘Madchester’, the center of the universe.
Key words for the scent are Gin and Tonic and vinyl while fragrance notes include Juniper, Thyme and Cedarwood.”
