Inspired by the fearless spirit of New York, Black Bold is the perfect scent for the man who is led by few, but followed by many. It is a daring new fragrance that pushes the 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.
“My aspiration for Black Bold was to embody the bold essence of New York,” said Kenneth Cole, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Kenneth Cole Productions. “Black Bold celebrates the confident and daring individuals who like to live life on the edge.”
THE FRAGRANCE: 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, which reflect the beauty of human strength. Black Bold features top notes of zesty citrus and herbal tones, rounded out with a blend of ground nutmeg and a whisper of lotus flower, revealing a chilled blast of masculinity on the skin. Finished with elements of wood and leathery musks, the fragrance contrasts between dark and light and allows the boldness within to come to life.
THE AD CAMPAIGN: Black Bold is captured in a striking print and digital campaign shot by photographer Gregory Harris in New York, NY, and features model and artist David Alexander Flinn.
THE BOTTLE: With a sleek bottle design that stays true to the Kenneth Cole brand, Black Bold incorporates a lush leather-like textile with a sleek silhouette. These luxe bottle elements are inspired by the menswear minimalism and the opulent textured skins of the Kenneth Cole collection.
The fragrance is available in 100ml Eau de Parfum flacons. Black Boldwas launched in 2016.
