Robert Graham brings to life the essence of the brand through three new men’s fragrances – a collection of blended essences that are exceptionally crafted and distinctive. These blended essences are the product of a singular blending and aging process that yield a flight of rich and expressive scents – blended at their absolute optimal level.
Robert Stock, Founder of Robert Graham, was inspired by the rare craftsmanship of blended spirits for his first foray into the world of men’s fragrance.
“Like a great liqueur, single malt Scotch or small-batch Bourbon, I saw these fragrances blended from a little bit of this, and a little bit of that,” said Robert Stock. “We started with a feeling, where each blended essence had to have its own personality.”

THE ART OF SPEED AND STYLE – FOR THE DRIVERS AND THE DRIVEN.
An essence crowned with a symbol for the drivers and the driven – the racer, skimming the curves of Monaco and cliffs of the Pacific coast. This blended essence is for men of speed, who have a passion for risk taking and a penchant for style.
The Pilote de Course cap was inspired by the original bust created in the 1920s by legendary sculptor Francois Pimienta. Only two copies of this rare hood ornament are known to exist. The leather stitched base is inspired by one of Robert’s steering wheels.
A smooth top note of classic Vodka Citron merges with fresh Bergamot and is finished with subtle Smoky Guaiac Wood to instantly evoke a thrill- seeking drive along the ocean cliffs.

THE ART OF AUDACITY AND BOLDNESS – FOR THE LOYAL AND THE DYNAMIC.
The bulldog has always been a symbol of fierce individuality and willful intelligence – a fitting way to top off such a determined essence. Housed in a faceted decanter and finished with a foulard print, this bottle gives a nod to the well-dressed modern gentleman.
Staunch, steadfast and spirited this English bulldog wears a hand-painted purple bowtie – a one-of-a-kind with an unmistakable strut. The petrified wood base was inspired from a piece of wood that Robert collected on his travels.
This blended essence walks the line between fresh and sybaritic, mixing top notes Clary Sage, Coffee Santos and Amber Wood to give it the epitome of eclectic sophistication.

THE ART OF MAGNESTISM AND SENSUALITY – FOR THOSE WITH A BIT OF SWAGGER.
Like the legendary stamina of the horned ram whose head graces the artful decanter top, Robert Graham evokes a daring sense of self and true grit. Deep, rich and almost mystical, born of alchemy and the exotic.
The horned ram’s head, with green Swarovski crystal eyes is revered in cultures around the world as a symbol of strength and virility – a spirit summoned to bring fearlessness to warriors who could use a dose of his stamina. The steampunk gear base was inspired by Robert’s passion for race car driving and gears – the magic is in the mash up.
An overly sensual top note of Tobacco Absolute with secondary notes of Patchouli and Tonka Bean are melded to perfection for this distinctive blend.
“Men are so attached to rare and collectible spirits, they’re a part of his life. We created the fragrances and the decanters as something men can relate to–an artful bottle he would want to keep to decorate his desk, study or book shelves,” remarks Robert Stock.
Captured in prismatic, finely crafted Italian glass decanters, with fabric labels inspired by archived Robert Graham prints – these blended essences are designed to be displayed & discussed.
