Keneth Cole has launched Kenneth Cole for Him and Kenneth Cole for Her, a collection of fragrances designed to be layered.  

"I believe that everyone is their own brand. Personal style is defining, and this unique selection of fragrances provides yet another opportunity for one to further express their individuality," said Kenneth Cole, chairman and chief creative officer at Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc.

For Him

Kenneth Cole for Him is a fragrance with a blend of salty, citrusy and amber notes. The fragrance includes top notes of sea salt, white citrus and a mineral accord; middle notes of jasmine and ginger and base notes of modern woods and white amber.  

"Kenneth Cole for Him captures a deep essence of the brand and creates a very special fragrance. A clean and edgy style embodied by a contrasted and graphic scent based on an enticing mineral accord. Inspired by the urban and high-tech streets of New York, a city of endless possibilities… Rock 'n roll woods melt with authentic saltiness and translucent jasmine to provide this biting clarity, an innovative addiction to embrace,” said Philippe Romano, perfumer at drom.

For Her

For the Kenneth Cole for her fragrance, it blends floral, citrus and musk scents. The fragrance includes top notes of pink peonies, lemon and translucent florals; middle notes of jasmine, violet and lily-of-the-valley and base notes of sandalwood, heliotrope and skin musk.

"The scent is inspired by the Kenneth Cole woman who would wear this fragrance, traditional with an edge. The signature is centered around musk providing this effortless, easy comfort that is extremely wearable and pumped throughout the fragrance in a non-traditional way. The edge comes from this unique duo of carrot seed and ambrette, providing a touch of warmth to increase the mellow expression,” said Nicole Mancini, senior perfumer at Givaudan.

A Personal Twist

In addition to the release of Kenneth Cole for Him and Kenneth Cole for Her, the company has released The Personalization Fragrances, a collection of fragrances that can be layered with the other two products.

The fragrances in the line include:

  • Serenity. The fragrance is a blend of white pepper, whiskey accords, peach nectar, woods, vanilla and tonka bean. Used with Kenneth Cole for Him, it creates a smooth woody/amber scent, while it enhances notes of peonies, violet and sandalwood when used in Kenneth Cole for Her.
