Niche line Byredo has launched Westbrook, a new fragrance in collaboration with basketball player Russell Westbrook. Westbrook's second fashion collection for Barneys, Westbrook XO Barneys, debuted last month.
"This fragrance was built around the duality of Russell's personality. Off the court I found him to be humble, down to earth and always with a comic element. On the court Russell is one of the greatest competitors I have seen, and you seldom see him losing his focus or interacting with competitors. There is something almost ruthless in his approach to the game and it was this energy that I tried to capture in the fragrance." –Ben Gorham, creative director and founder of BYREDO.
The duality of this scent is displayed with the fresh opening of the Osmanthus and warm and dark base of Haiti Vetiver and Suede accord.
Additional notes include gin accord, black violet and tobacco leaves.
Byredo Westbrook is available now at Barneys, $350 for 250 ml Eau de Parfum.
