007 Quantum Aftershave
New Quantum from 007 fragrances is out now and I have to say, it is surprisingly good! The theme behind the scent is a man that can remain calm under pressure, just like James Bond himself. Or maybe this guy – the real life Stig AKA Ben Collins!! Here he is with the Aston Martin he did the stunt driving in for Quantum of Solace.
Ben Collins – The Stig
The Quantum fragrance is based on 2 main accords – a 2 phase character described as Raw Masculinity and Composure.
Raw Masculinity represents the classic groomed male that will appeal to guys that like a traditional aftershave. These are notes of Juniper Berries and Bergamot that provide an energizing citrus hit and rests on the musky deeper notes of sandalwood.
The Composure Accord complements the Raw Masculinity element. This side of the fragrance has notes of leather (just like the interiors of Bond’s cars) and violet leaf to bring a modern edge of freshness and widen the appeal of Quantum. It’s a wonderful combination that dries down to sensual and soft depth. Really lovely – I actually quite liked it on me.
