Marlon Teixeira is the face of Jimmy Choo Man Blue
Jimmy Choo opens a new chapter with Jimmy Choo Man Blue, a new fragrance for the man who is invigorated by life, relaxed and self-confident, clas yet with a casual, rugged edge. He doesn’t hesitate to pair his cool white sneakers with a suit as he skates to work through the urban landscape. He has an effortless elegance, at ease with his environment and the world he lives in, embracing freedom and opportunity.
This dynamic new scent in Jimmy Choo’s masculine fragrance franchise is a play on contrasts like the multi-facetted Jimmy Choo man himself, an instinctive woody aromatic leathery scent.
It expresses a contemporary facet to match today’s lifestyles. The barriers between work wear and street wear have been erased; anything goes for the confident yet casual man of today. His dark blue suit is casual yet elegant over a simple t-shirt, his crisp white sneakers the perfect accessory wherever he goes. Effortless in every way, he exudes a relaxed confidence and a magnetic attraction that is evident in the fragrance he wears, aromatically fresh on the surface yet resolutely masculine, with hidden earthy depths.
The woody aromatic leathery fragrance was designed for Jimmy Choo by master perfumer Nathalie Lorson. On top, clary sage’s aromatic imprint strikes a balance between freshness and refined texture. The tonic transparency of bergamot brings a breath of fresh air and contrasts with the spicy warmth of black pepper. The intense texture of leather reveals itself in the heart of the fragrance, assuming an extreme masculinity enhanced by the urban elegance of grey amber and the vegetal woody facets of cypress. The creamy sensuality of sandalwood provides a distinctive and addictive drydown, supported by magnetic vanilla and sophisticated vetiver.
“I composed this set of textures around three impacting elements: the aromatic and velvety texture of sage leaves, the grained and raw texture of leather and the smooth texture of sandalwood to create a masculine and modern addiction,” explains Lorson.
Top Notes: Clary Sage Essence, Black Pepper, Bergamot
