What’s That Fantastic Stench?


Fantastic Man magazine, the four-year-old Amsterdam-published zine from Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom, the creators of Butt, is launching its own fragrance on March 9 at Colette. The scent is aptly named Fantastic Man and is a collaboration with Ben Gorham of Byredo, according to Material Interest:

"'The initial idea was to create a classic cologne with a very modern
feel,' Gorham told us of the fragrance, which mingles bergamot with
incense, lavender, and patchouli. Up next: a candle collaboration with
Acne, to be released next month. Are more Byredo partnerships in the
works? Hopefully, Gorham says."

Incidentally, Bret Easton Ellis is the next Fantastic Man.
