Kenneth Cole Announces New Black Bold Fragrance

Kenneth Cole announced the launch of Black Bold, the next evolution of the brand's signature fragrance, Kenneth Cole Black. Inspired by the fearless spirit of New York, Black Bold is the perfect scent for the man who will take on any challenge, regardless of the odds and who is brave enough to believe that they can make an impact. The new fragrance pushes boundaries with strength, power, and confidence. From the sleek, leather-like wrapped bottle design to the fragrance notes, Black Bold adds a dynamic new dimension to the Kenneth Cole fragrance collection. Kenneth Cole collaborated with Master Perfumer Harry Fremont of Firmenich to craft a scent that embodies the feeling of a strong masculine exterior with a confident yet caring interior, reflecting the beauty of human strength. Black Bold features top notes of citrus and herbal tones, rounded out with a blend of ground nutmeg and a touch of lotus flower. Finished with elements of wood and leathery musks, the fragrance contrasts between dark and light and allows the boldness within to come to life.
