I reported on Fantastic Man‘s collaboration with Swedish parfumier Byredo back in March, and thanks to Isabelle, I’ve now got my hands on it. The packaging,is predictably gorgeous: minimalist white with black details and a very old-school paper seal that establishes the feeling you are receiving something really special. It’s the fragrance equivalent of opening a product by Apple.
Current issue, pictured above, out now.
We were lucky enough to speak to Gert Jonkers recently, who, along with Jop van Bennekom head up the team at Fantastic Man. It’s no secret that we’re big FM fans at Brandish, and one look at the magazine’s clever art direction, witty articles and embedded fashion editorials will show you why. Nowhere else can you read about Beryl Woodsware crockery and Tom Ford in the same magazine so it was a real privilege to speak to Jonkers, stay tuned for part two of this interview tomorrow.
As if creating an amazing magazine wasn’t enough, the talented team behind Dutch-based Fantastic Man have teamed up with Swedish scent makers Byredo to release their own self-named cologne.
