Rankin and Azzi would like you have S&X on Valentine’s Day

Late last year, British photographer Rankin and award-winning perfumer Azzi Glasser released “S&X”, a unisex fragrance they have designed together and which is part of Glasser’s The Perfumer’s Story by Azzi label. Its pitch? Capturing S&X in a bottle.

After creating bespoke scents for high profile clients, celebrities and properties alike, Glasser launched her line last year, in which she seeks to celebrate individuality in the way she knows best: through our most intimate sense. Thanks to the trailblazing magazines that he has launched and his vivid photography, Rankin needs no introduction. The result of their collaboration: a hedonistic distillate of skin on skin, the caress of an eye on the body, those moments that imprint themselves so deeply on the subconscious that they become emotions. 

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Rankin has released new images in which he captures the seduction and fleeting desire which has been translated into this scent – its notes include pepper, earl grey, olibanum and castoreum, jasmine, leather and magnolia – destined to inflame the senses as much as his photography sets fire to the imagination.

S&X, $120
