Art Scents

Greg Lauren's new cologne for Barneys was made just for you


If you're the kind of guy who leaves his vast cologne collection on the mantle like it's a bathroom attendant's bounty, let us be the ones to gently inform you that that is a grade-A d-bag move.

There are, however, some exceptions.
Topping the list is Greg Lauren's new fragrance. This dude's an artist who employs tailored menswear as his canvas, and he's teamed up with Barneys for an exclusive fragrance that is actually one-of-a-kind.
Translation: He painted the bottles. All of them. By hand. As in, you'll have an art original that smells awesome, too.
He scuffed the caps, stained the bottles with chlorine and paint, and applied his own hand-lettered labels. Check out his process.
And inside? It's a warm melange of tonka bean and vanilla that smells as at home on you as it does on her.
So go ahead and leave it out on the counter. Art should be shown off.
