Founded by Kenneth Cole in 1982, the namesake label is an American fashion house originally founded as a luxury footwear brand. Kenneth Cole changed its name to Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc. when it couldn’t afford a hotel or showroom to debut its first shoe collection at market week, learning that the brand could park a trailer outside the hotel it had a film company permit. The company launched a documentary named “The Birth of a Shoe Company” before expanding to include menswear, womenswear, accessories and fragrances.
Formulated in collaboration with Coty, Kenneth Cole launched its first perfume in 2002, and the brand now has seventeen fragrances under its belt. Inspired by the hustle and bustle of New York City, and designed by Steve Dermercado, the brand’s first fragrance features notes of black currant, lily and pepper. Reaction, another one of the brand’s earlier scents, is an aromatic men’s fragrance with notes of patchouli, lemon and lime. Citrusy and aromatic, it’s a fresh choice for the warmer months.
