Broste Copenhagen- The brand
“Sometimes magic occurs in the blink of an eye. When you least expect it. Seemingly out of nothing. When you are occupied with all the practicalities of life, and do not anticipate the interruption. Then, suddenly, a barely traceable whiff of perfume instantly takes you back to your childhood and reminds you of motherly love, sunscreen and sand dunes. A comforting sensation of familiarity hits you when you see a smile on someone’s face and recognise it, or when the taste of sweet summer berries instantly brings you back to the kitchen of your grandparents. Lazy, sunlit afternoons in your childhood home suddenly come to mind when you let your fingers follow the rough cracks of a time-worn wall, or you get an instant inclination to hum a long-forgotten tune when tuning into your favourite station on the car radio, barely catching the first few chords.
Often, the strongest memories are awakened by sensory experiences – a smell, a sound, a colour or a taste – that will instantly take us back in time, and make us long for times that have passed, or make us unexpectedly aware of the present and of how to make the most of the moment. The Broste Copenhagen collection is a homage to those happy memories that shape us and never cease to make us love and laugh, even long after they have passed.”
