The beautiful transparent, red and black packaging, which caught my eye earlier on, on Sephora.fr contains a jus described as being both red hot and fresh, inspired by a "red pepper candy" that perfumer and director of olfactive development François Demachy found in the US, some kind of Atomic Fire Balls, Red Hots or Hot Tamales, one can only guess (no brand names were given out)
"The original idea was to transcribe the sensation of eating the candies," he explained. "Paradoxically, there's the fact that they are very peppery, very burning, but give a fresh effect simply because one is obliged to breathe very deeply."..
Actor Jude Law will be fronting the fragrance globally except in the US and UK. Model Jon Passavant will be the man in the ads in those two countries.
The design for the bottle and packaging was inspired by Dior's Chiffre Rouge Black Time watch, which is sported by both men in the ads.
"The new collection includes a 50-ml. eau de toilette spray for 50.46 euros, or $78.90 at current exchange, and a 100-ml. eau de toilette spray for 70.62 euros, or $110.50. There also will be ancillaries.
In the U.S., where it will be a Sephora exclusive, a 1.7-oz. spray will retail for $50 and a 3.4-oz for $70; a 3.4-oz. aftershave lotion for $44, and a 2.5-oz. deodorant for $18."
