Founded in 2015 in Stockholm by a group of young alchemists from different backgrounds, Stora Skuggan combines niche perfumery with visual art. Named after a location in the north of Stockholm, the brand embodies a mystical and melancholic meaning as it translates as “the big shadow”.
The perfumes are compounded by hand and are based on stories that blur the line between myth and reality. Central to the brand, these tales are conceptualised through scent and art, creating a small universe for each product. The range features five fragrances inspired by places, sensations or emotions, and anything that moves the mind.
