Having traveled the world in his previous career, Chris Collins developed a love of luxury and a deeper appreciation for fine fragrance. As the founder and scent storyteller behind his own fragrance brand, Collins brings his connoisseurship to create alluring and exotic scents.
Chris Collins fragrances are designed to capture feelings of attraction, daring, and freedom, whether that means a sweet gourmand or a hypnotic wood. Besides creating a sensual mood, the scents also tell the stories of New York and Paris and their cultural exchange, from the Harlem Renaissance through today.
"I create fragrance the way a composer writes music. The name of the fragrance is like the title of a song. The notes are the lyrics. The way they mix together is the music and melody.
I'm inspired by a story, a memory, a place or, in some cases, a specific fragrance note. I'm very much inspired by music, art and love. The end result are only those fragrances that I fall madly in love with, that elicit a strong emotional response." - Chris Collins
