Inspired by his earliest scent memory of his father wearing the iconic Grey Flannel cologne—fascinated by everything about it: the bottle, the label, down to the flannel bag it came in—Chris Collins launches three exciting new scent “stories” that truly embody his love of all things lifestyle and luxury.
Harlem Nights, Renaissance Man, and Danse Sauvage are the result of a love affair with fragrance, dating back to his teenage years when he first got his hands on Calvin Klein’s iconic Obsession for Men. A meeting with famed French perfumer Kilian Hennessy
later on led to Chris spending months in Mougins and Grasse, France—the birthplaces of fragrance—learning the process of transforming notes into memorable scent experiences, immersing himself in its unique artistry.There he learned how to transform individual notes into something of greater value: the fragrance.
From his life-changing immersion in Paris and life as a New Yorker in his historic brownstone in Harlem, Chris has brought on these three new fragrances to tell the story of a man and the love affair between these two places close to his heart.
“To me the perfumer is an artist, like Picasso, Basquiat, or Pollock, making olfactive masterpieces.”
