PRO is the name of a fragrance and a music album by the swiss pop band Jeans for Jesus. The strategy was to sell the newly released record together with a perfume. The fragrance PRO is a creation by Niklaus Mettler and was realised in collaboration with designer Gian Gysiger and photographer Anja Schori. PRO is on sale at jeansforjesus.net
Severin is a good friend of mine who left the Nederland’s for a masters program in the United States. He has been my guinea pig for this particular vetiver composition that I named after him. Now it became a forget me not and I hope he will come back some time to pick up a new blend. Because I attend to develop the formula over longer terms.
The fragrance 'saisissement' evolved from a collaboration with the swiss artist Raphael Loosli for the exhibition “Into Coriander” by Gil Pellaton at the art space sic! in Lucerne. The fragrance was live on sight bottled by Niklaus and sealed by Raphael's hand sculptet silicon tops. The edition was sold infront of the art space on the 7th of April 2017. www.sic-raum.ch
