Reiss unveils debut fragrances for women and men


Grey Flower for Women and Black Oudh for Men created by perfume designer Azzi Glasser with leading notes of sequoia wood

British fashion house Reiss is set to unveil its debut fragrances for women and men in September, created by perfume designer Azzi Glasser.

Grey Flower for Women and Black Oudh for Men are both modern classic scents and were in development for just over two years. Grey Flower for Women opens with armoise and pimento berry, which give way to a heart of sequoia wood as well as jasmine noir and cocoa leaf. Finally skin musks, olibanum, amber crystals, patchouli and baies add warmth at the base. Meanwhile, Black Oudh for Men has top notes of laurel leaf and green cypress, a heart of sequoia wood, clary sage and vetiver, and base notes of black oud, black musk and amber.

With Reiss recently celebrating its 40th anniversary, founder and MD David Reiss thought it was the right time to branch into the beauty industry. He said: “The luxury experience is driven by stimulating the senses within a space; whether visually inspiring through print and silhouette, texturally enticing in beautiful fabrication or indeed provoking a response with a bespoke scent. We are excited to be enhancing our offering with the launch of our debut fragrances, blended with a master perfumer in our modern, sensuous and iconic environment.”

The scents are packaged inside gold and silver metallic bottles, for women and men, respectively. The fragrances will be sold through Reiss stores and exclusively through retailer Selfridges from September, and cost £49 for 100ml and £35 for 50ml. Meanwhile, the Grey Flower for Women is also available in a smaller 30ml size for £25.
