A German and a Swede walk into a London coffee shop. A friendship is forged between these women who have lived and learned all over the world, from Italy to India. Passion for perfume has underlined every experience, flaring amid the passport stamps, impossible to forget. They bring bottles to their next meeting, sharing their favourite scents, possessed by this passion that has gotten under their skin. They cannot leave it alone. They start working on their first collection alongside legendary perfumer Francois Robert. The rest is Friedemodin perfume story.
Combining traditional perfumery with contemporary elegance to create fragrances that are personal, inspirational and tailor-made.
Born in an Artist’s villagein Germany, famed for the Worpswede School – a group of famous artists who lived there in order to capture the unique landscape. The dancing light, the uninterrupted horizon, and the shifting scents that rose from the meadow, heath and spring, season after season, continue to inspire her. Her mother’s love for fine fragrance captured her mind at first light, and as a child Nina collected miniature perfume bottles. Fragrance is her life-long passion, and becoming a perfumer, her dearest dream. As a brand and product strategist within the hospitality industry she has created bespoke travel miniatures for airlines and luxury hotels, for the likes of Annick Goutal, Jean Patou and Gianfranco Ferre.
Born on the Swedish island, Lidingö, her formative years were framed by nature’s
miraculous scents and vistas. Cycling to school every day, through forests and fields of wildflowers, running wild and barefoot through the grass. A move to Africa, then the US, shaped her traveller’s heart. A visit to Grasse at the age of 15 planted a seed. She has worked all over the world as an Experience Designer and Product Manager for trailblazing companies, which include Skype. Both Nina Friede & Elisabeth Modin live and work in London.
