OUD / JOUX

Frau Tonis' exclusive room fragrance for „AM TACHELES“
Available from 17th March 2021

JOUX is avant-garde: a unique residential building, in the middle of the AM TACHELES urban quarter designed by Herzog & de Meuron in the heart of Berlin.




OUD/JOUX - Exceptional Architecture

Frau Tonis Parfum has created an extraordinary room fragrance for the apartments of the JOUX: OUD / JOUX. Discreet and stimulating at the same time, noble and obstinate. Great architecture - translated into fine aromas. In OUD / JOUX, oud - the resin of the eaglewood tree - combines with tart, citrusy aromas of bergamot as well as notes of sandalwood, tobacco, incense, amber and cedar. Pure, delicate and exciting at the same time.

A ROOM SCENT
GIVES US COMOFORT.
WELCOMES US
IN A FRIENDLY WAY,
FROM THE MOMENT
WE TURN THE KEY
IN THE LOCK.

The JOUX is residential building of the architects Arno Brandlhuber and Muck Petzet; for them and their building, Ms. Tonis has created a room fragrance that enters into a sensual connection with the extraordinary architecture of the building.

The free play of materials characterizes the architects' design: Aluminum, pink marble, tinted glass, exposed concrete and oak wood surfaces form a visual composition that is countered on the olfactory side by an equally precious blend.




THE SOUL OF AN APARTMENT IS ITS SCENT.

OUD / JOUX is of timeless elegance, combined with courage and innovation. As a reminder of our humanity, in all its contradictions and complexity.
 

Arno Brandlhuber + Muck Petzet designed the impressive JOUX - in the heart of the city quarter AM TACHELES. A short excerpt from an interview with the architects provides insights into their inspiration and thoughts.

What makes the JOUX special in a nutshell?
AB: The JOUX has great qualities: it is well protected inside the city quarter and not directly on the street.
At the same time, it has a special expressiveness and each apartment benefits from the landscaped courtyard, right in the middle of the city.

You both like to work with concrete and rough materials and have added a fashionable component with the JOUX.
MP: What's very exciting for us with the JOUX is that it was possible to be more free with materials and work in a way that interests us.

A house in shades of pink. Quite bold. Or even trendy?
MP: Neither. But I find it very interesting that color is a theme. No one talks, for example, about the light yellow that keeps appearing in architecture and that I find much more questionable. In the urban context and in the entire urban district AM TACHELES, the color will fit in perfectly.
