Winter sports have given me so much and it hurts me to see our winters get shorter and warmer.
I connect with A. N. OTHER’s environmental choices. Every aspect of the brand is thoughtful of the environment.
I demand from myself more than anyone else does. As a little girl, my Mom would drop me off at the resort at 7:45 where I would freeze until 9. I spent my teens away from home, family, and friends.
This is what hard work feels like, and it takes hard work to get to where I want to be.
There is magic and excitement in doing things differently.
Having never ridden back country before, I traveled to the Arctic islands of Svalbard in search of something different. I ventured deep into remote parts by snow mobile, slept in a tent and searched for conditions suitable to ride with temperatures well below freezing, the constant threat of polar bears and unstable weather conditions.
I was training in Wanaka, New Zealand when I got 15 fragrances. Each came in a small unimpressive bottle designated only by a number. No names. No cover stories. No packaging distractions. No perfumers' identity. No biases.
A. N. OTHER stripped away everything, leaving me only one thing to focus on – what’s inside the bottle. As a professional athlete, I appreciate the fair play.
I chose #3. It's a light, not too sweet, Fresh Floral scent that you can wear during all 4 seasons. It was important to me that my fragrance could be used every day. When I go snowboarding or to the gym, I spray once, and on other occasions, I spray a bit more to get a more intense smell.
A. N. OTHER x SILJE NORENDAL
We gave Silje 15 fragrances created with unlimited budgets and total creative freedom to choose from. Some fashioned by award-winning Master Perfumers, others by up-and-coming talent. This is the one she chose.
