    Default R.I.P Christian Audigier

    As a big fan of Christian Audigier's scent and of his Ed Hardy scents, I was saddened to hear of his passing away at only age 57.

    I like both lively scents and lively looking watches, and I feel he certainly had the knack for making them.

    Regards,
    Renato.

    Sad about the news too, being myself quite fond of his fragrances. R.I.P. and may his remarkable legacy, at the very least fragrance-wise if not also in other aspects of fashion and style, live on.

    Sad news indeed.

    I remember the days when his Ed Hardy t-shirts lined the walls of Buckle (an American clothing retailer specializing in jeans and tops). People were willing to pay a very premium price for one - they were three times as expensive as the other tees sold at Buckle, and still sold like hotcakes. The fragrance license was a natural extension of the tees, but the brand then became overlicensed - and that strategy almost killed YSL before Tom Ford took over.

    Personally, I thought that his fragrances were very underrated, but very reasonably priced. Love & Luck is one of the best MI clones, Skulls & Roses is a really good Fierce clone with a unique bottle, and his eponymous scent is a boozy oriental along the lines of (but not the same as, by quite a margin) Straight to Heaven.

    May he rest in peace, and I hope that his fragrance licensee Elizabeth Arden doesn't discontinue the fragrances just because he died. Still, Arden has resurrected classics like Giorgio for Men and kept HUMMER fragrances going long after GM made the last H2 and H3, so there is hope.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    That sucks. I mean, he wasn't as known as a lot of designers, I'm sure his stuff inspired many though. I remember reading how he was diagnosed with some type of diseases a few months back, and I guess it really took a toll on him quick. As for his fragrances.. I'm sure he was just the logo for the selling point. He didn't have any influence on how they smelled at all. I do really love Christian Audigier for men though.. excellent underrated fragrance.

    I was initially a bit disappointed with Skulls& Roses because it wasn't as loud as the other Ed Hardy scents. But surprisingly, I've worn it quite a few times recently, and have grown very fond of it. I've never smelled Fierce to which it is often compared.

    Yes, Love and Luck is a good one, like a copy of MI or SMW.

    This is sad news, 57 is way too young to go..
