Joseph Abboud Black LinenMenswear designer Joseph Abboud has launched Black Linen, a new men’s fragrance inspired by the brand’s American craftsmanship and design. The 3.4oz bottle is available at Men’s Wearhouse and Joseph Abboud stores nationwide as well as online.

Abboud worked closely with Tru Fragrance and Harry Fremont, Master Perfumer of Firmenich, to create the fragrance. Directly inspired by a black linen tuxedo from his Spring 2016 Collection, the fragrance packaging, name and notes all encompass Abboud’s romantic, summer aesthetic.

“I’m so pleased to launch Black Linen, just in time for summer,” said Joseph Abboud, chief creative director of Tailored Brands Inc. “I absolutely love dressing up for events in the summer in a black linen tuxedo and this fragrance is the perfect finishing touch. It’s a clean, airy scent with many textures. I wanted it to be reminiscent of my designs and bring confidence to men wearing it.”

“Black Linen is a clean and distinct fragrance with textural facets that evolve over time,” added Fremont. “Grapefruit adds polished, masculine freshness while clary sage captivates the senses with earthy, aromatic undertones. As the fragrance dries down, Haitian vetiver reveals smoky, woody warmth for an intriguing fragrance experience.”
