Bentley`s new fragrance (launched Summer 2013) is a first for the distinctive British luxury brand and unlikely to be the last if it`s as well received as it was when we were lucky enough to get our hands on a sample.
Designed for the cosmopolitan, self-confident, individualistic, and at the same time highly success-oriented man (we like to think this is us all over!), this fragrance can best be described as `a Bentley in a bottle`. It was created by top French perfumer Nathalie Lorson, who has pulled together the finest perfume raw ingredients and created a scent that can only be described as `leather meets wood`.
The top notes offer an exhilarating cocktail of spicy and aromatic essences. The dark, throbbing power of black pepper meets invigorating bergamot and green bay leaves. The heart notes reveal the timeless elegance and sensual feel of brown leather. The perfumer has enhanced these leather notes with natural rum essence to give the composition incredible fullness and an elegantly addictive character. Clary sage and cinnamon then unfold, further heightening the finesse and uniqueness of the whole fragrance.
Fine wood notes distinguish the base of the perfume. `I chose cedar because of its powerful unadulterated scent and patchouli for its sensual depth and natural elegance,` says Nathalie Lorson.
This combination of fine woods gives the fragrance a strong, masculine structure. The base notes are sensuously accompanied by musk and benzoin Siam, which convey a feeling of comfort and warmth and, in the perfumer`s words, `are perfectly suited to today`s men`.
The new Bentley Fragrances men`s line is now available in selected perfumeries and department stores.
