Perfumer Phillippe Romano (Inter Parfums) has created a new men's fragrance, First Instinct, for American apparel brand Abercrombie & Fitch that will launch in 2016.
First Instinct perfumer, Phillippe Romano, said: “I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougère with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond.” First Instinct, an oriental fougère, is intended for “the confident man who is not afraid to express his feelings.”
Top notes include an aromatic gin & tonic accord combined with Kiwano melon. Middle notes offer spicy Szechuan pepper, airy violet leaves and tangy citrus. The basenotes are comprised of sueded musk with raw amber.
