After Jonny Johansson showed his Fall 2010 Acne collection in London last week, it became commonly known that the Swedish designer still plays with action figures. What was less widely reported from the Clone Wars-inspired show: He likes to dabble in fragrances, specifically capturing a room through scent as a means of creating physical memory. Enlisting Byredo’s Ben Gorham, with whom he collaborated on that epically enjoyable scented candle for Fashion’s Night Out last fall, he filled the show’s train garage location with a perfume that boasted hints of cinnamon, ginger, lavender, and clove leaves with an aftermath of smoky birch notes. The fragrance was gifted to showgoers the night of the presentation and is allegedly not going to be produced in further quantities. So, who’s got a bottle—and when are you going to put it up for auction on eBay so I, er, interested parties, can get spritzing?
Acne’s Jonny Johansson proved that he works well with others when he joined forces with Lanvin earlier this year to create a line of universally coveted denim, and to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out he’s embarked on another collaboration. Teaming up with Ben Gorham, fellow Swede and founder of Byredo Parfums, Johansson has commissioned a scented candle that will receive a proper coming-out party at the Acne Studio at 10 Greene Street on Thursday between 7 and 11 p.m. Lilla Nygatan 23, dreamed up by the renowned perfumer Olivia Giacobetti and named after the Stockholm address of Acne Collective’s new home in an old seventeenth-century building, is meant to smell of cold stone, warm woods, and traditional incense. It opens with artemisia and peppercorn when lit and gives way to traces of myrrh and cedarwood as it burns. If you can’t make it to the party, Barneys will be stocking the candles exclusively after the Fashion’s Night Out festivities subside.

I am interested in all those new, electro-current handheld devices that claim to literally zap acne away. Do they work?
I’m what’s called a “late adopter.” I like to give new devices some time on the market before I wholeheartedly recommend them. That said, there are handheld devices currently on the market with studies supporting their effectiveness in the treatment of acne. Whether they work better than some of our traditional topical acne medications, which have a long safety record, remains to be seen.
