Playboy are introducing a new, limited-edition men's fragrance developed with Coty, Inc. called Playboy VIP Platinum Edition...
The fragrance compositition is signed by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin of Firmenich, who is better known as one of the co-authors of Womanity by Thierry Mugler and a number of niche perfumes including Juozas Statkevicius (2006) - a Lithuanian gem - Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay (2012) or the prize-winning, excellent Esteban Tonka (2007).
This is to underline the fact that before rushing to judgment and shunning the mass-market for fragrances, consumers ought to be aware that the same people work behind different sorts of projects. The goals and budgets are different, yet the skills are the same and even progressively get better over the years.
The VIP Platinum Edition might be of interest to perfumistas for its showcasing of tonka bean which allowed Pellegrin to earn his prize in 2007. On paper, it sounds like this might also have something to do with Guerlain L'Homme Idéal, which is replete with Tonka. The woody oriental opens on notes of bergamot, birch leaves and cedar leaves seguing into a heart featuring a water accord, green apple, and violet leaves. The base rests on sandalwood, tonka bean and a gourmand praliné accord.
