Launch of John Varvatos Men's Fragrances

Recently, I was invited to attend an American fashion designer John Varvatos fragrances launch. Yes, the long waited John Varvatos men's fragrance collection has finally available in Malaysia!
This launch event was held at a chic and cozy restaurant on a hilltop which escapes within the city, Neo Tamarind Kuala Lumpur.
The launch venue was well decorated with rock-and-roll elements and guests were welcomed by two masculine models with photo opportunities.
Emcee for this launch event, Will Quah. He has introduced John Varvatos to the media and guests. 

Words like “rich”, “contemporary”, “masculine”, “modern”, “assertive” and “elegantly relaxed” come to mind. These words, of course, also describe the many attributes of the John Varvatos man, not only his fragrances.
Let's start with a brief introduction of 
John Varvatos.
John Varvatos is a brand that occupies a unique place in the landscape of American design. It unites old world craftsmanship and refined tailoring along with modern innovations in textiles and a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility. 
Launched in 2000 with a collection of tailored clothing and sportswear, the brand now represents an entire lifestyle that includes belts, bags, footwear, eyewear, limited edition watches, luxury skincare and fragrances, as well as the younger, edgier John Varvatos USA collection and Converse by John Varvatos.
During the launch, four men’s fragrances have been presented and each of them is unique and the scent is also very promising. 
The fragrances concepts are :
  • modern
  • sensual
  • elegant
  • sophisticated
  • free-spirited. 
The fragrance have performed exceedingly well in Asia, where the fragrance concept and scent have receiving raving reviews despite the fact that John Varvatos fashion footprints are absent in these countries.
