Here is a professional breakdown of 8.5 Fragrance I think this will help explain the actual scent
8.5 has been compared to Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, Tobacco Vanille, Marc Jacobs’ BANG or anything by Robert Piguet Fracas,
8.5 fragrance notes
Leather: A proprietary blend of fragrance oils that recreate the essence of modern leather, invoking the essence of fetish gear or motorcycle jackets.
Coconut: a mixed blend of coconut and Tahitian vanilla that sweetens and deepens with wear. Giving a warm and sensual mid-note that offsets the hard top notes of the Black Leather.
Rare Woods: A secret blend of exotic woods that include Cedars, Balsam and Cypress. These oils are very therapeutic and soothe and heal the skin as well as give 8.5 it’s deep natural base notes
These fragrance oils are sourced from all over the world and some are aged over 2 years to increase the depth and complexity of the scent.
The design concept was to create a fragrance that invoked a highly masculine and intensely sexual scent that adapted to the individual wearing it.
Beyond the novel packaging, the scent itself is a sophisticated fragrance that responds to the wearer’s natural body chemistry and creates a lingering evocative essence.
Notes: Masculine, Sexual, Clean, Earthy, Hypnotic, Modern, and Youthful
