Poetry meets Bauhaus. Atl. OBLIQUE is a Berlin based niche perfume house founded by Mario Lombardo in 2016. Luxurious Eau de Parfums and handmade scented candles represent the core collection. The invisible language of scents, timeless design and the craft that accompanies it, are the guiding theme of the brand. Deep-seated in the here and now with a classic heart the fragrances of Atl. OBLIQUE are not only a window onto our history but a deep breath of the present and a dance with the unknown.
Looking for new ways of expression, Mario Lombardo created Atl. OBLIQUE to preserve his life journey and memories as olfactory notes. The name OBLIQUE is taken from the French typography expression for italic, which links the brand with Lombardo’s design roots. He chose to launch a scented candle collection following the alphabet to give every letter an olfactory heart. From this starting point the brand evolved to an internationally known boutique artisanal perfume house with a signature look, linking modern German design with the poetic and high class French perfume art.
Craftmanship, high-quality ingredients, and outstanding design. The niche perfume house Atl. Oblique not only composes its fragrances in France but also produces all collections in Germany. Following a purely »perfumistic« approach, all scented candles are composed with a top, middle, and base note. Fine papers, hand poured wax, hand painted glasses, and fragrances with an aura, make these candles classics of our time. The unisex Eau de Parfums line continous this luxurious path with unique compositions, small batch production and remarkable packaging.
As one of the most renowned German designers of our time, Mario Lombardo has influenced the national and international design scene for many years. His work is considered groundbreaking, testifies to a social relevance, and has been honoured with numerous national and international awards, as well as a monograph. His work has always playfully overcome stylistic boundaries and dares to perform a balancing act between various seemingly mismatched disciplines, creating new contexts in language, space, aesthetics, and materials.
In the very heart of Berlin’s Mitte shopping district, Atl. Oblique provides a sophisticated oasis for scent lovers. The atmosphere is tranquil and modern. Located on Almstadtstrasse 5, the elegant facade and a neighborhood with selected boutiques, make this shop a unique experience. The location not only welcomes visitors with a beautiful luxurious interior but also with a insight of the creative world of the brand.
