Bentley sniffs out a fragrance for men

What do you think the fragrance of Bentley is? For some, it will be the smell of fine leather trim and thick pile carpeting inside the latest Mulsanne or Continental GT. While others will imagine a whiff of gear oil from a classic 1920s Le Mans winning racer.

Well, now Bentley is offering a third option, the ‘Bentley for Men’ fragrance, created by top French perfumer Nathalie Lorson, from the perfume house Firmenich.

“I chose cedar because of its powerful unadulterated scent and patchouli for its sensual depth and natural elegance,” explains Lorson.

As well, Bentley has collaborated with famous French crystal maker Lalique to create the ‘Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition’.

Adorned with a crystal version of the legendary ‘Flying B’ Bentley mascot, this eau de parfum is composed by Mylene Alran, from the French perfume house Robertet.

The price for the 40 ml Lalique special edition … if you must ask, is $4500, while the ‘Bentley for Men’ Eau de Toilette, in 60 ml size, costs ‘only’ $75.
