Founded in 2016 by Niklaus Mettler, In’n’out Fragrances is a house for alternative perfumery based in Amsterdam. In addition to commissioned fragrances, In’n’out produces self-initiated projects in collaboration with artists from fields outside of traditional perfumery. Past collaborations have addressed topics such as fashion, urbanism, sexuality, design, language, life, and death.

Recent projects include ‘Nomad Perfume Intense’ for Swiss agency Contexta (Zurich), MiglėEditions (Berlin), ‘Semantic Noise’ scent installation for Aaro Murphy (De School, Amsterdam), ‘Mantras for a Club’ PRICE a.k.a. Mathias Ringgenberg (Splendor, Amsterdam, Kunsthalle Bern).

Raum für Kunst, Luzern), ‘Lark’ performance at Lost & Found (Amsterdam)…

In’n’out values best practices regarding fragrance production, and invests in methods that are guaranteed cruelty-free and respectful of animals, humans, and the environment.The idea that the rhythm of our breathing connects all of us with the world of odors from birth until the moment of our last breath is not only present in the name, but serves as a lead for all the work of In’n’out Fragrances.

‘Nomad Perfume Intense’ is a fragrant idea of freedom and a new element of the identity for the Swiss advertisement agency Contexta. The perfume is passed on by members of the agency in the form of a 2ml sample bottle, envelopped by their business-card. \ Image: Pier Luiggi Macor, 2020.
‘Mantras for a Club’ is a new performance production by PRICE. In a multitude of media layers PRICE introduces changing perceptions of our time by the example of clubbing culture, the museum or virtual spaces. In part of his production scents are used in different forms and evolve along his planned tour in 2020-21.
'Semantic Noise' is the title of an installation by the artist Aaro Murphy that was presented at the techno club De School in Amsterdam. Four spinning speakers fastened on poles hummed fragments of an urban commuting noise environment, complemented by an ambient scent introducing odours of rubbers, reception lobbies and green apples. The work with Aaro Murphy is an ongoing collaboration since 2018.
'Take your time until time takes you' is the title of an installation by artist Tatsuhiko Togashi. During his master studies in fine arts at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, Tatsuhiko was investigating the dividing line between smell and taste of bitterness. The outcome of his research was a number of objects and an ice cream flavour that was exhibited at his graduation show in 2018. One of his works was a series of almond shaped pottery flasks carrying a perfume that was composed based on his studies.
