New local favorites Fitjar Islands is a new series of products where development and production takes place in Fitjar on the west coast of Norway. Their scents are closely linked to and inspired by the landscape in and around the place they’re created, and the products are actually named after islands and places around Fitjar. For the creators of the series, there’s no better place to find inspiration for scents that represent Norwegian simplicity and freshness.

The perfect glass Technical perfection is the basic principle of the Zalto Glass Manufactury. Zalto Glasses have always been produced following a tradition of using only the most highly skilled glassblowers working with a selection of the best raw materials. This tradition, and the resulting fineness of each glass, echoes the delicate virtuosity of the great Venetian glass artists of the Renaissance. I didn’t think that there would be anything better on the glass market, this glass is. Moreover it has something erotic ..." – Francois Mauss, president of the Grand Jury Européen. In Bergen, you’ll find these glasses only in Glass Thomsen’s stores.
