When we were searching for a niche fragrance brand that was clean(er), sustainable and creative we thought we hit the jackpot with Swedish brand CRA-YON.

Cra-Yon was launched in 2020 by French/Swedish fragrance pioneers Christine and Niclas Lydeen. They have developed award-winning fragrances in the premium segment for many years, always with the same fascination and exploration of the transportive power of scent as enhancer and elevator of our well-being.

 "The sense of smell is a powerful and subjective sense, and with Cra-Yon, we want to inspire everyone to awaken their nose and make scent a natural part of their well-being and personal expression. We see scent as an invisible superpower that triggers and enhances your presence. It's capturing moments, pausing, and asking oneself, 'How do I want to feel today? How do I want to feel in this moment?'"

Vanilla CEO

*Executive confidence booster. Vanilla CEO will ignite the wearer with a sense of vigour, thanks to endorphin-boosting notes of orange blossom and juicy mandarin. Grounding you with a balancing heart of vanilla orchid, sat on a base of warming amber – it’s a staple fragrance for putting you in charge.


This scent is all about power, yet it is quite refined and pared back and serves as a reminder that power does not always equal strength and intensity. Power can be in softness, power can be in kindness and power can be in a knowing rather than a loud voice. The Vanilla and Sandalwood work beautifully together and linger well on the skin without ever overpowering.
