Just when I thought the case was officially closed on featuring men’s anything on HKI, here comes the launch of a new, very masculine men’s fragrance, Kenneth Cole Black Bold, which begged to be mentioned. And although the actual advertisement features a no-so-chocolate-y Morris Chestnut, this was my chance to insert my fantasy pitch man who I think better represents who the Black Bold man is. Are you listening Kenneth Cole?
Pushing boundaries with strength, power, and confidence, 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. Inspired by the fearless spirit of New York, the sleek, leather-like wrapped bottle design, and Black Bold’s fragrance notes adds a dynamic new dimension to the Kenneth Cole fragrance collection. Intense. Determined. Unexpected. Now is the moment to #findyourbold.
“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,” said Kenneth Cole, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Kenneth Cole Productions.
In collaboration with Master Perfumer Harry Fremont of Firmenich, Kenneth Cole crafted a scent that embodies the feeling of a strong masculine exterior with a confident yet caring interior, reflecting the beauty of human strength. 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.
