New and Exclusive
Bibbi Parfum The Ghost of Tom
Just landed exclusively at Liberty, Bibbi Parfum is a brand new and rather extraordinary fragrance brand created by Stina “Bibbi” Steiger and her husband Jan Vilhelm Ahlgren (yes, the founder of Vilhelm Parfumerie). Each of the scents are inspired by Steiger’s transformative experiences with ancient meditation philosophies, and sit at the intersection where artisanal craftsmanship meets new-gen technology. Ghost of Tom, the fragrance found in one of our drawers, was conjured up to replicate the tea-like scent supposedly left by otherworldly spirits. Spooky? A little. Delicious? Completely.Shop BIBBI
