Kristiansand New York is a new fragrance from Britt Hovde Ross and Elisabeth Steen, two Norwegians who met in New York City and set out to make a men’s fragrance "because there were few on the market they really loved and they wanted to make the sexiest fragrance possible".
In the creation of Kristiansand New York, elements were added to represent the elegant New York side. These include chic musks, expensive amber and sophisticated powdery notes. These collide with a wild side that embodies the natural impact of Norway. Masculine woods are spiced up with raw pepper and topped by crisp green notes and clary sage. Kristiansand New York is classy meets wild. Nature meets style. The result is a sexy woody-ambery definition of masculinity.
Additional notes include mandarin, spices, lavender and smoky woods. The new fragrance was developed by perfumer Pierre-Constantin Gueros, who notes that...
Kristiansand New York embodies the modern, cosmopolitan and fashion-forward New York lifestyle while paying tribute to the founders’ native Norway, a rather quiet place with a lifestyle much closer to nature. Both places are equally fascinating.
Kristiansand New York is available in 50 ml Eau de Cologne (although the concentration is 15%) for $65. It can be purchased at the Kristiansand New York website. (via press release)
