"Kallis is an alternative to African Leather"


While the MP collection focused on a mysterious destination, the MP collection is now concerned with exploring the landscapes in which leather is traditionally made. John is guided by the intuition that leather is realized in certain ways in certain places. Isn't this also related to the nomads? The essential companion for every journey, the loyal companion of every globetrotter, curious person and adventurer who sets out to discover the world, is his leather luggage. With this figurative background, John developed his own suitcase, which symbolically encloses all the scents created for and by travelers. A real treasure chest for “smell tours”.

If you associate leather with a specific object, then it is probably the bag first. In order not to rush into anything, you have to know that leather itself is part of a whole world of smells. A material that is often associated with animal elements and is sometimes limited to its strong side. But leather can also have a bright, luminous, delicate side and it is precisely these differences in leather that fascinate John. From raw material to olfactory expression - the approach is similar: leather reminds some of a second, protective skin, a hard shell, a dominant scent, a tar flower. For others, it is the most delicate skin, the most delicate fur, a sign of elegance, delicacy and sophistication. The range of leather is large and so is its interpretation in perfumery.

You have to go back a little in history to understand the ties that bind leather and perfume. In the 17th century, the trade in gloves flourished, and in order to mask the animal smell, the leather was perfumed according to the customer's wishes with the scent of sweet almonds, orange blossoms, gray amber, rosemary and much more. The title of “Master Glover and Perfumer” was born and the skills of this guild were highly valued at the King’s court. The town of Grasse in France was famous for its tanneries and developed its expertise in perfume by cultivating its own fields of flowers to scent the leather tanneries with. However, in the 18th century, with the appearance of competition and the fall in the price of leather, this craft disappeared and Grasse became the capital of perfume.

Leather gave birth to perfume making. Even though this relationship once had a shadowy existence, it is now complete. What was once attempted to be covered up is now being developed and enhanced.

Leather inspires, asserts itself and enables flaming chords. The scent of leather is more and more appreciated and is now obtained from the combination with raw materials such as styrax resin, labdanum, flower essences, oud, cassis blossom or synthetic materials such as Suderal, IBQ (Isobutyl Quinoléine).
For “Kallis” John created his first leathery work, “Irish Leather”. A tribute to Ireland. Here horse riding is carried out in a limitless nature. A chord that combines the grace of the horse with a strong nature. A green leather, a gallop through the grass. Other leathery impressions will follow: a floral leather, a lush leather. Strong visions. Nice places to meet.
