Rickard Söderberg has many strings to his bow. Besides being one of Sweden's best-known tenors, he is involved in the social debate within LGBTQ, environmental and cultural issues.
Inspired and driven by his fascination for fragrances, he developed the perfume Marsha together with Gunilla at Wise. It is a "one for all" fragrance and is described as having, among other things, "the scent of inevitable rebellion" and "unconditional love".

The perfume is named after Marsha P. Johnsson, an important personality in the LGBTQ struggle for equal value and rights for all, who has inspired PRIDE festivals around the world. A portion of the proceeds from the perfume sales will go to those working in the spirit of Marsha, including the Rainbow Fund.

Idris Harki

Every summer holiday as a child I spent with my relatives in the Tunisian mountains as a mini farmer. The air was always filled with the scent of wild rosemary growing all around the village.
The knowledge of how to harness its fragrance and properties has been around for generations. In fact, the region has been distilling fragrance and aromatic substances since the 12th century.

  • With the help of analyses and developed technology in the distillation lab, our fragrances are both extremely close to the raw material and more efficiently produced.

  • With a passion for fragrance, decent working conditions and help to convert to organic farming, I know we will stand for the best quality in the aroma market.

  • My vision for the future and Carthago Fragrance is to also distill Swedish/Nordic plants and to make Dalarna/Sweden
    into a world centre for sustainably produced botanical raw materials, just as Silicon Valley is for the tech world or Grasse for perfumes.

Magnus Dandanell

Magnus is one of the founders of Sweden's first single malt whisky distillery Mackmyra Svensk Whisky and former CEO for over 20 years.

  • His love of distilleries in all forms and pure raw materials led him to join Idris on this exciting journey.

  • His goal is to bring artisanal sustainable distilling of local raw materials to the flavor and beauty industry just as it has become a movement in the spirits industry over the past two decades.

  • "It should be an experience for customers and consumers to participate in the development and production of the natural raw materials.".
