arpa was founded in 2020 by Barnabé Fillion, a perfumer you may already know for his iconic fragrance creations for Aesop. The 'Institute of Synesthesia' is a research project that combines traditional craft with sensory impressions and experimental methods when creating perfumes. arpa's sensational perfumes transcend ordinary perception and offer a path to synesthesia: a fragrance experience in which all the senses are stimulated. arpa works with botanical, natural materials to create futuristic scents inspired by travel and historical stories. The hand-blown glass bottles are designed by Jochen Holz and packaged in a special holder made of glycerine. This holder can also be used as soap; a real eye-catcher for every perfume collection.
