A unique Bentley fragrance for men and a handmade crystal flacon, all developed with one of Europe’s finest artisan perfumiers and glassmakers.
The partnership between Bentley and Lalique, the fine glassmaker and perfumier, has already produced one remarkable crystal product: the limited availability Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition. Lalique has been producing fine glasswork and fragrances for almost as long as Bentley has been creating luxury cars. In collaboration with Art & Fragrance, Bentley presents fragrances Bentley for Men, Bentley for Men Azure, Bentley for Men Absolute and Bentley's newest fragrance Infinite for Men and Infinite for Men Intense.
It seems natural that, when it came to the development of a Bentley fragrance, these artisans from the fragrance and glassware world would make the perfect partners.
New to the collection: Bentley Momentum
Matching sleek scent design with exceptional materials, Bentley Momentum meets the same exacting standards as Bentley cars. In this new, forceful composition, the renowned master perfumer Nathalie Lorson creates excitement by contrasting aromatic freshness with potent, vibrant woods. As the fragrance opens, a splash of aquatic notes energises sparkling bergamot and cool green violet. In contrast to this refreshing style, clary sage adds herbaceous, aromatic accents, hinting at the sensuous warmth that unfolds in the heart notes.
Gaining momentum, the scent segues into a strikingly modern accord of ambergris and cashmere wood, evoking clean, sun-warmed skin and polished wood. The dry-down reveals a deep, burnished blend of smooth sandalwood and dusky tonka bean, in a sensuous trail of musk and moss. Available internationally from April 2017.
Bentley Infinite Rush for Men
Capturing the legendary luxury and extraordinary performance of Bentley’s Bentayga luxury SUV, Infinite Rush embodies the spirit of the modern adventurer Freshness from the top notes of pink peppercorns and mandarin evokes a rush of adrenaline, followed by a cocktail of spices, incense and lemon and stirring woody base notes of amber, vetiver and cedar.
Bentley Infinite Rush goes even further by completing its premium glass with a high-tech crackled effect. A special layer of varnish is applied on top of a classic varnish, and retracts uniquely on contact and during firing. In this way, no two bottles are the same, with each sporting an individual mosaic. Available internationally from April 2016.
Bentley for Men
The Bentley for Men fragrance was developed in association with Bentley and Art & Fragrance by top French perfumer Nathalie Lorson. The scent itself is built on the essential characteristics for a brand with Bentley’s craftsmanship heritage; notably, fine wood and leather notes. The Bentley brand is echoed in the Bentley for Men bottle, with a Flying B proudly embossed on the bottle’s shoulder and the iconic Bentley knurling on the stopper.
Bentley for Men Azure
Bentley for Men Azure takes its cue from the classic aromas of the fougère family, featuring green citrus top notes and woody base notes. Bentley For Men Azure is a powerfully expressive and complex fragrance with a fresh twist that appeals to sporty and style-conscious men.
Bentley for Men Absolute
Bentley for Men Absolute, available exclusively from Harrods, London, uses precious woods and natural essences to define an experience of pure luxury. One of the world’s most famous perfume makers, Michel Almairac, has put his extensive knowledge from his creations for Robertet, the world’s leading fragrance house for natural fragrance compositions, in Grasse and Paris, France, to work in creating this new Bentley for Men fragrance. The top note of Bentley for Men Absolute surprises, with a spicy cocktail of fresh ginger and pink peppercorns, and a hint of mystical frankincense.
Bentley Infinite for Men
Bentley Infinite Eau de Toilette expresses itself through an enticing succession of scents: natural, fresh, citrus top notes combine with the green, aromatic hints of lavender and cedar. These are quickly followed by vibrant heart-notes with bourbon pepper, violet and geranium. The final layer is one of sophisticated sensuality with patchouli, vetiver from Haiti and an exclusive hint of ambergris.
The Intense version of Bentley Infinite offers an even longer-lasting fragrance experience as this Eau de Parfum contains a particularly high percentage of aromas (15 per cent). Its strong first impressions are of black pepper combined with geranium, lavender and violet, with heart-notes rich in spicy essences. Nutmeg, elemi (a valuable Arabian tree gum), Siam benzoin (the balmy scented resin of the styrax tree) and a hint of ambergris produce a totally modern, masculine effect.
The aromatic woody nature of the overall composition is completed to powerful effect in the base note: with alluring extracts of patchouli, vetiver from Haiti, Moroccan cedar and moss. A delightful fragrance in line with the times. Endless pleasure for the senses.
