Bentley’s first luxury fragrance range for men captures the ‘essence’ of their powerful supercars
After recently impressing us with the launch of the world’s fastest four-seat convertible, the 2014 Continental GT Speed, and the remarkable luxury saloon 2014 Bentley Flying Spur, the acclaimed British manufacturer of luxury automobiles Bentley Motors for the likes of Bentley Boys now delightfully launches its first luxury fragrance collection, the ‘Bentley for Men’ and the ‘Bentley for Men Intense’. Interestingly, the fragrance range which captures the ‘essence’ of their powerful supercars also brings together the master French crystal maker Lalique and the iconic British car company for the creation of the first limited edition crystal flacon for Bentley, the ‘Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition’. And this impressive collaboration further allows the transposition of Bentley brand core attributes into ultra-luxury fragrance. However, it’s not new to see noted automakers venturing into luxury fragrance business, as the German automaker Mercedes-Benz in 2011 launched the perfume for men created by the renowned perfumer Olivier Cresp of Firmenich, and in 2012 unveiled the fragrance for women, besides Bugatti launched its limited-edition fragrance back in year 2006.
Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition
The bespoke Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition is an impressive crystal flacon with the iconic ‘Flying B’ Bentley mascot.
Limited to only 999 examples, the eau de parfum itself, composed by Mylène Alran, from the French perfume house Robertet, is a fitting elixir of fine woody notes and exquisite leather to complement the epicentres of excellence within Bentley’s craftsmanship.
