19-69: The Niche Fragrances of the Counterculture
The luxury cult brand 19-69 was founded by Swedish artist and photographer Johan Bergelin. As a photographer, Bergelin has had the opportunity to travel the world and capture the beauty of the most diverse cultures. These journeys formed him as an artist and as a person, opening his eyes. Johan Bergelin says: “sì, there are a lot of crazy things happening in this world, but I have also discovered what unites people. Very often it's beauty, be it in the form of music, art or perfumes”. With 19-69, the Swedish artist invites people to explore beauty beyond boundariesand see what we can discover about each other.
History of 19-69 Perfumes
"The brand name 19-69 is a powerful statement. 1969 represents an era of freedom, tolerance and counterculture. It is also the birth year of the perfume maison's founder, and symbolises the way in which everyone expresses their diversity. The perfume line is inspired by several iconic counterculture moments throughout history. Art, music and different cultures have left their mark on perfumes in terms of content, names and packaging: the different colours of the bottles symbolise the rainbow, which in 1969 stood for peace and freedom.
