A world first in a class of its own:
In collaboration with Art & Fragrance, the British luxury automotive brand Bentley presents its first fragrance for men - Bentley for Men.
Only absolutely top brands play a role in today's luxury goods' world. There is a small elite club of brands that hold sway with their unique approach to life and the outstanding quality of their products.
A major name in this exclusive circle is the British brand icon Bentley Motors – indisputably the best in its class for decades.
In 2013, Bentley is for the first time presenting a premium fragrance: Bentley For Men – a fragrance that meets the very highest requirements and is sure to cause a sensation in the perfume world.
Bentley For Men was created especially for cosmopolitan, self-confident, individualistic, and at the same time highly success-oriented men who are only satisfied with the very best.
Inspired by the finest leather, exquisite woods and refined design:
The top French perfumer Nathalie Lorson, from Firmenich, is behind the creation of Bentley Fragrances. She has skilfully transformed the quintessence of the legendary automobile brand Bentley into a superb and unmistakable fragrance experience. To do so, she has indulged in the finest perfume raw ingredients and clearly absolute must-haves for Bentley's debut fragrance: wood and leather – best known from the luxurious handcrafted interior of Bentley cars.
Bentley for Men's 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".
Perfume family: Woody-Fresh-Leathery.
Top notes: Black pepper, Bay leaves, Bergamot.
Heart notes: Rum SFE, Cinnamon, Clary sage, Leather NP.
Base notes: Cedarwood, Patchouli, Musk, Benzoin Siam.
Exceptional understated design:
The extraordinary design language of the British luxury saloon cars is echoed in the Bentley for Men and Bentley for Men Intense bottles: the lines and curves of a Bentley have been transposed into the rounded form of the flask. This makes the glass bottle particularly comfortable in the hand.
The bottle's cap surrounds a diamond-shaped polished metal section that reflects the bottle’s high quality. The striking Bentley signet, the "Flying B", is embossed on the bottle's shoulder and is commandingly poised on the front face of the pack.
The Bentley for Men Eau De Toilette's packaging is crafted in elegant matte silver, while Bentley For Men Intense Eau De Parfum adopts a luxurious copper tone that is perfectly colour-coordinated with the shade of the fragrance.
The whole visual effect was devised by the renowned Paris design agency Aesthete under the direction of the famous designer Thierry de Baschmakoff in close collaboration with Bentley Motors’ design team.
