Donna Karan's DKNY label has launched DKNY Men 2009, a new woody aromatic fragrance:
The DKNY man is as fearless as the city. A rebel in the truest sense, he's his own man. DKNY MEN is modern and cool, like him. It is a combination of soul and spirit, of sophistication and speed, inspired by all the city has to offer. Experience instant energy—a spirited top echoes the boldness of NYC with vibrant, wet citrus notes. An edge of spices and textured florals shows his daring side. A creamy blend of sensuous woods creates mystery—a smooth, sexy confidence.
The fragrance notes include bergamot, mandarin, juniper, sage, white pepper, cardamom, lavender, violet, jasmine, cedar, patchouli, orris and vetiver.
Donna Karan DKNY Men is available in 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products. (quote via sephora, additional information via escentual.com, parfuemerie-thiemann, with thanks to jonr951 for the tip) Update: DKNY Men was developed by perfumers Alberto Morillas and Harry Fremont, and according to Donna Karan, is "...all about the man and the city. It takes a certain kind of guy to live and thrive in New York [and] I wanted a scent to speak to his unique style and strength." (via Women's Wear Daily) Another update: see a review of DKNY Men.
Cereus has launched Cereus No. 14 (shown above right), a new fragrance for men:
A modern masculinity is captured through vibrant notes of grapefruit, tarragon and clary sage. This natural, aromatic feeling is wrapped with the warmth of amber cognac, and highlighted with violet leaves and rosemary. A smooth drydown of precious woods and warm musks lend the fragrance a sexy long lasting edge.
