New Baxter of California Bravado 2 & Bravado 3 Cologne for Men

American men’s grooming company Baxter of California will introduce two new scents from mid-April 2009 inspired in name only by the original Bravado cologne launched in the early 1970s. In fact, the new owner Jean-Pierre Mastey knew he didn’t want the new Bravados to smell anything like the earlier woodsy-floral cologne which has been retired for 7 years. He turned to fragrance supplier Belmay who blended the original to archive Bravado and create 2 and 3. Bravado 2 and Bravado 3 are described as being both “…light and sophisticated scents designed to fringe on unisex.”… Mastey said that “Bravado 2 has an edgy, citrus and musky accord, while Bravado 3 has more soapy, clean and softer notes.”

The official olfactory descriptions are:

BRAVADO 2, fragrance Notes: Top Note: Citrus Middle Note: Light Floral Dry Down: Soft Vanilla Musk, Slight Citrus Slight Notes: Natural Lemon Oil Peel, Basil, Cypress, Mandarin

BRAVADO 3, fragrance Notes: Top Note: Mandarin Citrus Middle Note: White Floral Lavender Dry Down: Musk Woody Slight Notes: Bergamot, Nutmeg, Lavender.

About the bottles:

“Marc Atlan, an art director with fragrance packaging credits including Comme des Gar- cons, Helmut Lang and Yves Saint Laurent, designed Bravado’s new bottle and packaging. Unlike traditional box packaging, Atlan stayed away from using ink or glue. Instead, he created a bold study in contrasts by use a dense and intricate explosion of splatters, sprays and drips in foil application. “The packaging is unapologetic, radical and absolutely masculine,” says Atlan.

The scents come in 100 ml flacons.

    These fragrances are amazing. I worked with the brand previously on a product launch to the media, so I’ve been a fan for some time. I remember my father using one of the shave creames as a kid.

    I recently received samples of the fragrances above for a story I’m working on, and instantly fell in love; it was hard to choose a favorite (maybe BRAVADO 2). The owner never ceases to amaze me with what he comes up with.
