Four renowned industry icons reveal an unprecedented signature collection of limited edition fragrances showcasing pure artistic freedom
Four of the perfume industry’s most coveted artists have united to unveil a luxury portfolio of limited edition fragrances that is redefining artistic expression for the perfume business by stripping the ostentation away from its fundamental design ethos to reveal a new minimalist and pure vision in Fragrance Art.
Planned for an initial public unveiling during this year’s Miami Art Week, A. N. OTHER is a signature fragrance line for men and women, conceived by Gilad Amozeg and Ariella Appelbaum based in Miami. The husband and wife company founders considered the decades-old packaging and design approach by the leading perfume conglomerates to be stagnant and withering, and therefore set out to challenge the conventional wisdom of today’s fragrance industry by carefully crafting a luxury brand with a new visual and minimal aesthetic.
A. N. OTHER is developed by a handpicked group of world-renowned perfumers, whose excellence has been harnessed to create a line that reflects their own unique character and personality. Each individual was given a blank canvas and unlimited budget to curate their own signature scent that is uncompromising in quality, using the very best ethically sourced raw ingredients and materials from Gold Standard certified manufacturers. The result is a gender-neutral Parfum grade portfolio of four unique fragrances that pays tribute to creative and artistic freedom each capturing a moment in time encouraging the wearer to write their own personal story through memories the A. N. OTHER scents bestow.
The esteemed group of perfumers assembled for the startup venture, considered to be the first of its kind and unprecedented for the fragrance industry, include David Apel creator of Bond no. 9 Wall Street and Tom Ford Black Orchid; Nathalie Benareau creator of Phlur Hanami and Olmsted & Vaux; Carlos Viñals creator of Christian Dior Higher Energy and Patricia Bilodeau creator of Jo Malone Red Roses. The A. N. OTHER debut collection of limited edition fragrances for 2018 is now available to order online at www.an-other.com and comprise of four core scents Woody, Oriental, Floral and Fresh. Each signature perfume is priced at $80 for 100 ML and $50 for 50 ML.
“Fragrance is an emotional product and our goal is to connect with our customers on the deepest emotional and artistic level, touching upon values, lifestyle and events that are close to them”, says Gilad Amozeg, co-founder of A. N. OTHER. “Scent can unlock memories and transport us back in time. We like to think of our portfolio of fragrances as placeholders that capture youth, optimism, vibrancy, and energy. Our signature line abolishes the norms of today’s perfume industry by ensuring optimum quality in both product manufacturing and package presentation. We have given our perfumers complete creative freedom to portray their own artistic expression through the scents they have developed and our product packaging and design has been created to avoid the typical façade perfume companies like to portray, that incurs an expense passed on to the consumer in the exorbitant price tag. Our luxury line of signature fragrances is of a premium quality in both essence and design offered at an affordable price.”
A. N. OTHER reflects the brand essence of the newly formed collection a placeholder or pseudonym used by an identity, person or contributor wishing to remain anonymous as a name that is yet to be decided. The brand identity allows for the portfolio to evolve each year, introducing a series of newly formed scents created by a new group of revered perfumers, each with a different story to tell.
While committed to supporting local businesses, A. N. OTHER is manufactured in South Florida and is dedicated to the sustainable use of biological resources.

The award-winning American perfumer, David Apel, is the creator of Oriental 2018. A dreamy blend of the exotic and the familiar, this exceptional fragrance with a driftwood base uses a rare cannabis accord to accentuate mystical incense notes. Sweet citrus, coffee aromas and edible notes of chocolate and bakery come alive on the skin as the fragrance dries.
French born, Patricia Bilodeau, is the creator of Woody 2018. Developed to fully harness the power of the olfactory senses, this perfume utilizes the tranquil and nourishing qualities of sandalwood to enhance concentration and awaken intuition. An infusion of lush, effervescent pear at the top, adds a distinct uplifting quality and an unmistakably modern appeal.
Cuban-American, Carlos Viñals, is the creator of Fresh 2018. Drawing inspiration from the resurgence of classic gin cocktails, aldehydic top notes shake this clean blend of crisp juniper and Madagascan ginger, alive with a freshness that fizzes and excites the senses. Metallic musk unifies a perfectly mixed blend, enhancing each note and completing the composition.
French born, Nathalie Benareau, is the creator of Floral 2018. This complex, yet playful exploration of light and dark textures brings a modern twist to classic perfumery notes. A rich base of sumptuous dark leather is punctuated by the elegance of night blooming jasmine. Nostalgic notes of sweet cotton candy and herbal mate add a contemporary lightness to the fragrance.
The collective portfolio of A. N. OTHER has resulted in a fragrance line that is pure and authentic, with an investment into the product and formula always remaining of paramount importance for the perfumers and founders. The customer is equally positioned as a priority within this brand philosophy, and is invited to tell the first chapter of a story yet to be told through their own fragrance journey.

OTHER speaks to todays millennial, recognizing how online purchasing and shipping efficiency has become the fabric of today’s youth market.
