Givaudan's Rodrigo Flores-Roux creates new Varvatos scent: STAR USA

by Grant Osborne, 10th October, 2011

Givaudan perfumer, Rodrigo Flores-Roux, has created a new scent for John Varvatos. Flores-Roux has been responsible for all of the Varvatos scents so far. The new fragrance: John Varvatos STAR USA is an extension of the younger, edgier John Varvatos STAR USA Collection – "a total lifestyle brand with a preppy meets rock aesthetic that gives rise to funked-up classics."

“Working with John [Varvatos] is a continually exciting challenge, as he strives to convey that hidden detail,” said Flores-Roux. “John Varvatos STAR USA boasts a game of contrasts—a comfortable mix of warm woody notes encountering an unexpected freshness which together convey a relaxed attitude while maintaining an unmistakable masculinity.”

John Varvatos STAR USA is described as a fresh and woody scent and contains top notes of red ginger essence from Laos, juniper berries, and cedrat from Sicily. The heart includes notes of blue spruce, green cardamom absolute, and osmanthus absolute. Vetiver, belambre, and tonka bean from Venezuela feature in the dry down.

The fragrance is available now as 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette, and 75g Deodorant Stick.
