Johnny Depp, leather, Californian desert plains, and the timeless appeal of a man who knows how to serenade with a guitar—this is masculinity encapsulated. Raw notes of Reggio bergamot and Sichuan pepper top the fragrance, with precious ambergris and a woody base to round it all off. Dior perfumer François Demachy says the scent possesses “a strong and unmistakable masculinity, like the image of a man who transcends time and fashion.” Fronting the fragrance’s ad campaign, Depp, known for his ruggedness, mysterious personality, and chiseled features, is a man who remains one of the most soughtafter thespians of our time.
