ALTRUIST | A swan song by Jacques Lacan, Miley Cyrus and our tinnitus about desire, lust and nothingness.

Eau de Parfum Altruist is based on the composition of Eau de Toilettes Altruist, which was created in 2016 as an Art Edition in collaboration with the Berlin artist Paul DeFlorian. The fragrance composition is strongly influenced by Paul DeFlorian’s inspiration. The atmosphere and colourfulness of his painting are reflected in the fragrance.

As Altruist has already found much favour as a limited-edition Eau de Toilette, the formula will be integrated as an Eau de Parfum into J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin’s fixed range from this spring. The higher concentration of fragrance oil makes the modern character of the Eau de Parfum unfold all the more.

The company has a rich history of working with top perfumers and using only the finest ingredients to create its signature scents. Each fragrance is carefully crafted to capture a particular mood or feeling, whether it's the playful and irreverent nature of the brand's "Zeitgeist" fragrance or the elegance and sophistication of its "Treffpunkt 8 Uhr" scent.
