Set of all 9 fragrances

Experience the alchemy of our fragrances mingling with your skin. The Discovery Set introduces you to all our scents, each of which tells a different story.

Sweet Taboo
Obsessive and intoxicating, this fragrance inspires you to break taboos in search of pleasure. Gourmand notes like coffee, cardamom, and vanilla create a seductive atmosphere few can resist.
Tokyo Blue
This floral blend exudes freshness, not sweetness, capturing the depth and intelligence of jazz notes from a saxophone. The fragrance foregrounds the metallic, aqueous scent of violet leaf in an homage to Chris’ father, who favored violet colognes.
Autumn Rhythm
Autumn Rhythm features a sensual blend of leather, cedar, and musk, conjuring images of a leather jacket and a trip out of the city and into the woods. The scent speaks to someone who stays confident in the face of chaos.
OUD Galore
The word “galore” implies near-infinite abundance. Wear this resinous, otherworldly fragrance to see the things you desire multiply around you. Oud, also known as agarwood, is overwhelmingly popular in the Middle East and Asia—it’s indescribably sexy and entrancing.
Danse Sauvage
Wild and erotic, this boozy, spicy scent has the power to bewitch. A blend of plum, cognac, and chili notes will envelop you in mystery and charm, leaving others feeling drunk off your presence.
Harlem Nights
A blend of orris and animalic musk replicate the feeling of smoking a fine cigar, while a rum accord smells like it was poured from the top shelf. Together, these notes create the anything-goes atmosphere of 1920s nightlife, where any night could become the stuff of legends.
Renaissance Man
An energetic, emotional fragrance, Renaissance Man unites different natural elements, from marine notes to honey to bergamot. The spicy, gourmand feel of the scent creates moments full of vitality.
Vide Core Meum
Vide Cor Meum (See My Heart), was inspired by an aria composed opera and takes the classic beauty of an Armenian style rose and modernizes it with herbaceous thyme. Sweet vanilla creates an atmosphere of seduction, and resinous incense adds a layer of mystery.
African Rooibos
A warm wind carries the scent of rooibos leaves and cedar off the South African mountains. Spicy black pepper and warm cardamom speak to a multidimensional personality, while bright bergamot brings life to the blend. 


"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


  • When did you first fall in love with fragrance?

    My earliest scent memory is of my father wearing the iconic Grey Flannel cologne. Everything about the scent fascinated me, from the bottle to the label to the flannel bag it came in. My Tokyo Blue fragrance is actually an homage to that memory.

    My love of fragrance intensified during my teen years, when I first smelled Obsession for Men. I found the warm, spicy notes so sexy and hypnotic. To this day, I focus on scent blends that mesmerize.

  • Where does your inspiration come from?

    Often enough, my inspiration comes from memories, like the story I shared about my father. Other times, my inspiration comes from travel. For 20 years, I was lucky enough to visit great cities around the world as a brand ambassador. After New York City, where I’ve lived for 17 years, my favorite place in the world is France.

    In France, I spent a few months in Mougins and Grasse—the birthplaces of fragrance—to study perfumery. That’s where I learned to structure a fragrance to tell a story. Many of the stories I want to tell come from another great French city, Paris, and the relationship it had with Manhattan between 1918 and 1937.

    During that period (the Harlem Renaissance), artists like Josephine Baker and Duke Ellington were making adventurous work that resonated across the Atlantic and still move people today. In my fragrances, I wanted to capture the sexiness and charisma of those artists and the aliveness of Harlem, then and now.

  • Are Chris Collins fragrances all for men?

    The short answer is no. I’m inspired by legendary men’s colognes, but at the same time, women have told me they love how they feel when they wear these scents. I think everyone should wear whatever fragrances they’re drawn to.

    My scents are for people of any gender who want to channel their exotic side. They complement a confident and alluring state of mind that anyone can channel.
