Meinrad Hilfiger was a 19th century Maitre Gantier Parfumeur. His secret formula manuscript was handed from one generation to the next, and his great granddaughter used modern ingredients to give his authentic perfume a contemporary interpretation. This modern twist on an ageless formula is like the iconic Kelly bag from Hermès that stayed true to its original design.
“Luxury is timeless. For me, luxury is using only the purest, rarest, and best quality ingredients.”
A dreamy blend of the exotic and the familiar. This exceptional perfume with a driftwood base uses little tones of sweetness – a bit of vanilla, whisky for warmth, and a rare cannabis accord to accentuate mystical incense notes. Sweet citrus, coffee aromas and edible notes of chocolate and bakery come alive on the skin as the perfume dries.
“This fragrance was an opportunity to really have fun and make something with the things I dream of using.”
Drawing inspiration from the resurgence of classic gin cocktails, aldehydic top notes shake this clean blend of crisp juniper and Madagascan ginger alive with a freshness that fizzes and excites the senses. Metallic musk unifies a perfectly mixed blend, enhancing each note and completing the composition.
“Working on my fragrance for A. N OTHER was refreshing. It helps to let the creative juices flow when you have a larger budget and you are free to think out of the box.”
This perfume utilizes the tranquil and nourishing qualities of sandalwood to enhance concentration and awaken intuition. An infusion of lush, effervescent pear at the top adds a distinct uplifting quality and an unmistakably modern appeal.
“It was terrific working with no brief. It was an experience I will not forget. It was great not working with budget constraints. I just wish I had creative freedom all the time. Submitting the fragrance as it was and having it accepted was a dream come true.”
We gave Silje 15 scents to choose from. All created with unlimited budgets and total creative freedom. Some designed by Master Perfumers, others by up-and-coming talent. This is the one she chose.
The rich Osmanthus aroma blurs the gender lines by fusing sweet feminine floral notes with masculine leather undertones and creating a complete sensual union. At the heart of this fragrance is the rich naturally juicy peachy scent of Osmanthus Absolute. It is contrasted with the freshness of a sea salt accord.
“I love working without boundaries. It allows for the original idea to be conveyed without compromise and the result is a true artistic expression. As a perfumer, you are also completely exposed. It’s thrilling!”
This complex, yet playful exploration of light and dark textures brings a modern twist to classic perfumery notes. A rich base of sumptuous dark leather is punctuated by the elegance of night blooming jasmine. Nostalgic notes of sweet cotton candy and herbal mate add a contemporary lightness to the perfume. Hidden notes that emerge as the fragrance dries down surprise you when you think you really know it.
“I can create with notes and materials that really interest me without having to worry about price or commerciality. It’s very liberating. It encourages creativity, and it means that I can create something very meaningful to me that has great quality.”
SIMPLE IS THE NEW BOLD
Brands spend a disproportionate amount of money on marketing and gimmicks, leaving only a small budget for the product itself.
A. N OTHER is different. We have a crystal-clear focus on what’s inside the bottle. Everything else is stripped back to the barest essentials.
The confidence to spend less on nonsense lets us invest more in exceptional craftsmanship and extraordinary ingredients.
Ariella Appelbaum, Founder
David Apel won the ‘American Society of Perfumers Young Perfumer Award’ in 1991 and is one of the most recognizable stars in the industry. He also created Hall of Fame perfume Black Orchid for Tom Ford.
We wanted David for our debut collection. So, we gave him total creative control, an unlimited budget, and a promise not to tamper with his work.
The result is OR/2018, a warm perfume that projects comfort and confidence.

A.N Other is a Miami-based fragrance company founded on a simple premise – to create limited edition fine fragrances that are affordable and accessible to all, without compromising on experience or creative process. Their core product is a collection of six award-winning gender-neutral parfum grade fragrances.
A.N Other sells to their consumers via a handful of boutiques across the globe. This negates advertising costs for the company, as well as expenses involved in establishing their own physical stores. This places greater value on the internal composition of the fragrances and allows the perfumers complete creative freedom to craft their perfect scent, unrestrained by brief or budget. This process is repeated annually allowing the collection to be re-imagined by a new group of perfumers.
A.N Other fragrances contain the highest quality elements available, and are free from parabens, phthalates, dyes, toxins, & animal products. Their packaging is plastic-free, and is made from recycled cardboard and biodegradable organic paper.
