Ever read an issue of Fantastic Man and wondered what some of those always gorgeous, always sartorially-savvy, and sometimes provocative men smell like? You'd probably imagine something refined, yet slightly unanticipated, because what fantastic man is entirely predictable?
In any case, you can lay your imagination to rest now that FM founders and editors Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekon are launching the first Fantastic Man eau de cologne at Colette on March 9th. It's a collaboration scent with Ben Gorham of Byredo, and the idea was "to create a classic cologne with a very modern feel," a concept conceived with incense, lavender and -- the kicker -- patchouli.
Post-cologne launch the vaguely muppet-sounding Gert and Jop will debut a candle collaboration with Acne to be released in April, and there could even be more team-ups with the boys and Byredo. A Fantastic Man can't be merely one-note, can he?
