Abinoam, a new niche fragrance brand, makes its debut
in select boutiques across the US. The line's creator
wanted it to reflect intimacy.
Abinoam's concept is inspired by the eternal
inner-struggle between darkness and light. The name
Abinoam is an oblique reference meaning "father of
kindness" from the Book of Judges. "The meaning of
the name is beautiful," says the line's creator, "but
when you see it in print or just say it, the word
projects a dark, mysterious aura. This one word, I
felt, exemplified the spirit of the fragrance."
This was taken a step further during the blending
process. "The fragrance was carefully orchestrated
so that as the notes dried down, the fragrance became
darker and more sensual.".
