What is Fantôme de Maules?
Who is Fantôme de Maules?

The setting: Maules, a small village in the french-speaking part of Switzerland, surrounded by agricultural fields and dense forests.

The subject: An enigmatic being, seen by many wandering the local woodlands for the past decade, dressed in nothing but cloaked camouflage and an obsolete mask. Most likely human but one cannot be sure. Looming at almost two meters tall he seems to take particular interest in the surrounding flora and fauna.

Unaware of passersby, he spends his time picking and smelling flowers; only then he lets down his guard. A crack of a twig or the rustle of a leaf and he'll vanish back into the foliage.

The locals call him Le Loyon, but the character calls himself Fantôme de Maules. The ghost of Maules.

So who is Fantôme de Maules? A recluse, an outcast from society who has made a home in the forest? A survivalist preparing for the apocalypse? We will never know, because he doesn't want us to.

And perhaps that's what makes Fantôme de Maules a character with such a riveting mystery. The modern world is alight with information and the shadows are shrinking. It is rare to come across someone who doesn't feel it is necessary to explain himself.



FAQ from Stora Skuggan

Do you use all natural ingredients?

No, we use both essential oils and synthetic materials of the highest quality. Just as you will find in any good perfume. The difference from a mass market perfumer is that we will use the right materials, regardless of their cost. Cutting corners by using cheap substitutes of expensive oils only makes sense if you're planning to sell millions of units. That is not our focus.

Are Stora Skuggan perfumes vegan?

With the exception of Thumbsucker, which contains beeswax – yes. That does not mean you should eat them.


Stora Skuggan is a niche perfume brand from Sweden, founded in 2015. The brand is run by a small group of perfumers and designers. All production – from perfume formulation to branding – is done at the Stora Skuggan fragrance studio in Stockholm. The perfumes are compounded by hand. Stora Skuggan perfumes are based on stories that blur the line between myth and reality. Central to the brand, these tales are conceptualized through scent and art, creating a small universe for each product.
