John Varvatos‘ latest fragrance is Dark Rebel. It is advertised by the slogan “From Darkness Comes Light,” with longtime John Varvatos model muse Jonas Kesseler as the face of campagne. New fragrance is inspired by Varvatos’ return to Detroit, intended for rebellious men who think outside the conventional framework, individuals who march to the beat of their own drum and are not followers. The dark, mysterious outing perfectly captures the masculine scent, with smoky, oriental – woody composition (sweet tobacco mixed with sensual, resinous woods).
It opens with accords of Jamaican rum, Cuban sugar cane, davana, cardamom and clary sage. The heart includes black leather, fir resin, nutmeg, pepper and styrax. Akigala wood, tobacco leaf, Mexican black vanilla, castereum, balmy wood and juniper are in the base.
Dark Rebel scent comes in sleek black bottle, tightly wrapped in leather bands, decorated with a black cap with silver Fleu de lis design. The fragrance is available as 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette.
