Skandinavisk wants to inspire the world to live more Scandinavian. More in balance with nature, within society, and with the self. They believe a more balanced Scandinavian approach to life is better for all, and that living ‘more Scandinavian’ is not just where you come from, it’s also how you think, how you treat others and the world that surrounds you, and what you treasure.
The Certified B Corporation lives this vision by creating sensory Scandinavian stories designed to leave a lighter footprint. Each fragrance captures a chapter in the story of Scandinavia, one that is precious to the locals and exotic to the outside world. The company then carefully blends each fragrance so it can be enjoyed either in the home or on the skin.
Founded in 2012 and proudly independent, their fragrance collections can be found in more than forty countries, many of the world’s leading retailers, at their Copenhagen flagship store and online at skandinavisk.com.
B Corp Certification: A Tough Lesson
Seven years after its foundation, Skandinavisk was looking for a way to measure whether the company lived up to its promise of a better world and benchmark itself against the world’s best in the process. This was when Skandinavisk found out about the B Corp Certification – a rigorous, holistic impact assessment designed to demonstrate that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency.
Skandinavisk achieved B Corp Certification in 2019. Their initial score, scraping through at 84.1 points, laid bare their imperfections and reminded them of all the things they’d rather not admit, says founder Shaun Russell.
