The new fragrance trilogy
Taking as inspiration the very heart of Mercedes-Benz legend—the three-pointed star, and its iconic meaning: to be a pioneer, and to engineer your own future/voyage wherever the journey takes you “on land, on the sea, and in the air” — Land, Sea Air represents a deeply significant return to the elements.
Created by French master perfumer Anne Flipo, the trilogy is a tribute to layering: each element can be worn separately, or in your own desired combination. It’s a simple concept with extraordinary results. By layering the fragrances of our outstanding Trilogy — Mercedes Benz Land, Sea, and Air — explore all possible scent combinations for new dimensions of pleasure and complexity.
What makes this alchemy possible is a shared pillar. Each of the three fragrances in this iconic Trilogy is built on floral, woody patchouli. However, each one has its own unique olfactory identity thanks to pronounced individual notes, carefully blended by master perfumer Anne Flipo. By layering the fragrances, the trio can be explored in a myriad of ways — on their own, in pairs or all together. From just three spectacular scents, you can achieve seven singular combinations, each one evoking its own universe.
Sustainability and re-invention come to the fore throughout the creations, from composing our ingredients in partnership with LMR, the world’s premier source of superlative-quality, ethically-transparent raw materials, through to the innovative use of recycled components within the design of the flacon. Championing environmental consciousness, recycled aluminum and glass—optimized in weight to use less material—are paired with a removable threaded pump to create a rechargeable option. This is further complemented by outer packaging formed from recyclable and biodegradable paper containing 5-10% of seaweed, produced with 100% renewable energy, which is then pad-printed with water-based lacquer ink.
An up-cycled leather pouch, exclusively created for our Nomadic Trio Set, connects back to the heart of the brand by using surplus leather from the luxury interior of our Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
A groundbreaking Trilogy for a complete man, with all three fundamental elements united.
Taking as inspiration the very heart of Mercedes-Benz legend — the three-pointed star, and its iconic meaning: to be a pioneer, and to engineer your own future/voyage wherever the journey takes you “on land, on the sea, and in the air” — Land, Sea Air represents a deeply significant return to the elements.
Across centuries and philosophies throughout the history of humankind, these three natural elements have always functioned as a beacon; inspiring different ways of life and defining different facets of our personality. Land represents culture, legacy and authenticity, the energy that we draw from what we build and protect. Air brings out our visionary side; our innovation, our imagination; our soaring freedom. And Water is the channel for our instinct, our attentiveness, our sensitivity, and our appetite for adventure.
Together they combine into a groundbreaking Trilogy: a Trilogy for a complete man, with all three fundamental elements united.
A ODE TO CREATIVITY
Acting as the grounding pillar for every combination, Land combines the warm wood notes of Patchouli with the addictive rush of Cocoa Shell and Tonka Bean. Rosemary Camphor then offers a freshness which is completed by rosy glints of Geranium and the crisp power of Fir Balsam.
Sea evokes the refreshing sensation of a wave crashing onto the shore, with high-verdant Violet Leaf invigorated by vivid and fruity Tangerine, creating a marine effect further amplified by seaweed’s saline, leathery twist.
Finally, Air is a scintillating invitation to free your mind, with cooling, herbaceous Armoise oil encountering the decadent base notes of Angelica, and delicate floral notes of Petitgrain lifted to sparkling heights with citrus and bright Turmeric Leaf.
