A powerful & long-lasting blend of fresh geranium,addictive sage and sensuous woods, as thrilling as the crashing chords of an electric guitar. As clear-cut as a sharp black suit. Addictive, sexy and intense, projecting a sense of accomplishment.

THE BOTTLE. A MODERN STATEMENT.

The bottle’s striking design reflects the fragrance’s edgy masculinity and contrast of darkness and light.Conceived by Suzanne Dalton, the bottle is strong, heavy and elegant. Its sharp edges are defined by an intense dark black fade-out which gradually gives way to clear glass.A tribute to modernity and creativity.
