The famous Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner is considered the founder of modern zoology, but as a true 16th century scientist he was also: a prominent physician, botanist, linguist and – of course – spelunking adventurer.

In his 'Descriptio Montis Fracti sive Montis Pilati' from 1555, he chronicles his climb to the summit of Mount Pilatus, but we also get to follow him into the caves of the Alps. 'At night, the moon shines into the cave so brightly the light itself seems to take form, like a mist. It gathers in the ceiling and makes the limestone stalactites glitter and gleam, dripping tears of white liquid into puddles on the rock floor that never dries. Moonmilk.'



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.
