John Varvatos Dark Rebel Rider Eau de Toilette
American fashion designer John Varvatos released a new men's fragrance called Dark Rebel Rider which is borrowing from the mythology of the bad boy and the style you'll possibly id as « biker cool », so says Varvatos...
What is interesting is that rather than to go for gasoline, rubber and American leather - whatever that might smell like - the brand fell back on a classic leather accord, the Russian leather accord beloved by Chanel and others.
The edt has main notes of Russian Leather, bitter orange, citron, and black violets. It sounds like biker suave style to us.
The fragrance opens on bitter orange, citron, aldehydes, saffron, marjoram and hyssop leading to a heart of iris, osmanthus, black violets, rock rose, olibanum, resins and tolu balsam while the base rests on Russian leather, cacao, vanila, atlas cedarwood, patchouli and woodsy notes. The blend is authored by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
« Inspired by the world of motorcycles and the iconic black leather jacket, this daring fragrance captures the essence of bad-boy attitude and biker cool. The fragrance delivers a punch with a fearless blend of ultra-sexy leather, ambery notes, and dark woods that makes a statement of bold contrasts and restless energy. »
« The fragrance is housed in the iconic flask bottle featuring a sleek, black grain wrap accented with gunmetal zippers on each side. The signature Dark Rebel fleur de lis cap provides the finishing touch. »
