DAVIDOFF Agar Blend is the second opus of DAVIDOFF Blend Collection, a new line of perfumes directly inspired by the life and values of the company’s founder. Zino DAVIDOFF spent most of his existence exploring the world, looking for the finest materials and the most talented artisans. His dedication to refinement and quality is perfectly reflected by DAVIDOFF’s motto: passion for excellence, pleasure in life. The DAVIDOFF Blend line, DAVIDOFF’s first collection, pays tribute to this vision.
Each fragrance is carefully designed around a specific note sublimated by a careful selection of extremely qualitative and refined ingredients. The elegant sobriety of the bottle offers a perfect counterpoint to this sophisticated alchemy. True to this philosophy and following first fragrance, DAVIDOFF Leather Blend, the new DAVIDOFF Agar Blend combines the brand’s savoir-faire and one of the most sought-after and luxurious substances from the Orient: oud wood.
DAVIDOFF Agar Blend was designed for connoisseurs who fully appreciate the importance and rarity of true distinction. They seek only the most exclusive materials and skilled workmanship. His sense of taste and style earns him respect and admiration while his unassuming self-confidence makes him irresistibly seductive.Master perfumer Alienor Massenet (IFF) conceived DAVIDOFF Agar Blend as a bridge between the Western and Eastern cultures. To illustrate it, she imagined a rich and terribly addictive oriental woody fragrance. In the top notes of the fragrance, sophisticated cinnamon leaves create a slightly spicy prelude with light clove undertones to which black pepper adds a drier, fresher and more vibrant dimension. This striking overture is followed by agarwood, also known as Oud, the most expensive wood in the world. Raw and sophisticated at the same time, oud is a lush and incredibly sensuous note that introduces a mildness characteristic of the Oriental perfumery tradition. Guaiac wood oil reinforces this suave, hypnotic facet and brings soft and balsamic woody notes to the fragrance. In the drydown, emblematic ingredients of the Middle East enhance the agarwood trail. The long-lasting benzoin mingles its sweetness with the addictive mystery of ambreine and a vibrant amber accord.
DAVIDOFF Agar Blend’s flacon exudes a timeless and deeply masculine elegance. A distinctive groove runs along the side of the heavy glass bottle whose translucent shadows allude to the dark colour of the agarwood resin. The name of the fragrance appears on a golden metallic sheet while DAVIDOFF’s double D icon is branded on top of the solid black and gold cap. The textured carton box with its matching embossed tag and golden monogram perfectly complements the sober grace of the enclosed flask. Davidoff Agar Blend was launched in 2015.
