American fashion designer Kenneth Cole announces the launch of Black Bold, the next evolution of the brand’s iconic, signature fragrance, Kenneth Cole Black. Inspired by the fearless spirit of New York, Black Bold is the perfect scent for the man who will take on any challenge, regardless of the odds and who is brave enough to believe that they can make an impact.
The new fragrance pushes boundaries with strength, power, and confidence. From the sleek, leather-like wrapped bottle design to the fragrance notes, Black Bold adds a dynamic new dimension to the Kenneth Cole fragrance collection. Intense. Determined. Unexpected.
For more than 30 years, the company has embraced the essence of New York – its boldness, its energy, and its diversity, I wanted Black Bold to do just that – to celebrate the confident individuals who are the protagonists in their own personal stories of resilience, optimism, and ambition.
Kenneth Cole collaborated with Master Perfumer Harry Fremont to craft a scent that embodies the feeling of a strong masculine exterior with a confident yet caring interior, reflecting the beauty of human strength.
Top notes: zesty mandarin, frozen ginger, chilled watermint, tonic
Heart: ancient cedarleaf, ground nutmeg, lotus flower, incense smoke
Base: black & blonde woods, suede, violet leaves, soft musks, ambergris
Black Bold features top notes of citrus and herbal tones, rounded out with a blend of ground nutmeg and a touch of lotus flower. Finished with elements of wood and leathery musks, the fragrance contrasts between dark and light and allows the boldness within to come to life.
Kenneth Cole taps model and artist David Alexander Flinn to front its campaign for its newest fragrance – Kenneth Cole Black Bold. Sporting a black leather jacket, David is photographed by Gregory Harris for the black & white advertisement.
With a sleek bottle design that stays true to the Kenneth Cole brand, Black Bold incorporates a luxe leather-like material in a modern silhouette.
Kenneth Cole Black Bold will be available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Kenneth Cole stores, KennethCole.com, Macy’s, and other fine retailers beginning August.
