Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene, Grey Flannel is a versatile cologne with a timeless, musky, green character. It was a favorite of many men throughout the 80s and remains a popular choice today.
This fragrance has a robust opening with citrus top notes of galbanum, neroli, bergamot, lemon, and petitgrain. The combination of floral middle notes and woody base notes expresses a classic sophistication and elegance. Middle notes are initially dominated by violet, sage, and iris before the rose scent fully emerges. Base notes of tonka beans, oakmoss, and cedar wood anchor the floral tones in this masculine composition.
Launched in 1975, this was the first cologne from designer Geoffrey Beene. The brand emerged in 1963 and is now a fashion empire encompassing an award-winning collection of menswear, men's and women's accessories, and fragrance. The brand has remained successful despite the death of its founder in 2004. Profits from the company's sales are donated to various causes including cancer and Alzheimer's research.
