Bentley Fragrance for Men

Bentley has joined luxury car marques including Mercedes and Ferrari in branching out to the fragrance market with the launch of its first men’s scent collection.

The brand claims the new men’s range, which starts at £24, “has skilfully transformed the quintessence of the luxury automotive brand Bentley into a superb and unmistakeable fragrance experience”.

Alongside the range, Bentley has also partnered with French glass design firm Lalique to create a limited edition range called Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition.

Bottles feature a crystal falcon with the winged Bentley mascot. Only 999 bottles will be available at selected retailers priced at £3,000 from April 2013.

The fragrance has been created by French perfume house Robertet to include “fine woody notes and exquisite leather” to complement Bentley’s craftsmanship.

Tom Ford releases exclusive scent for the Middle East

Sahara Noir Tom Ford ad campaign

Sahara Noir by Tom Ford will launch at select locations in the Middle East this March before rolling out to Europe in early summer.

Tom Ford has gone on an Oriental adventure with his new frankincense-based scent, using the history and culture of the region to build an impressive new scent specially designed for the Middle East.

“Middle Eastern culture has an extraordinary appreciation for the luxurious, emotional and memorable qualities of fragrance; perfume is worn there in a way that feels very familiar to me. Sahara Noir is my interpretation of this heritage,” said Tom Ford.

The fragrance opens with bitter orange, sweet oasis grasses and Levantine cypress. The heart is composed of frankincense that is offset with cinnamon, Egyptian jamine and Moroccan rose. Sahara Noir finishes with cedar and vanilla tones.

Presented in a gold version of the classic Tom Ford fragrance bottle, the perfume is packaged in a fluted gold box. Prices are not yet available.
