To say that New Zealand’s All Blacks Rugby Team are a formidable bunch is something of an understatement – as World Champions of the rugby pitch, they’re famed for their performance-driven achievements, charisma, and commitment to tradition, epitomised by their iconic pre-match Maori ‘hakka’ dance.
Bulgari – which, coincidentally, was also established in 1884, the same year that the All Blacks began their ascent to the world stage – has taken inspiration from these bold, ferocious modern warriors to create two unedited limited edition fragrances: Bulgari Man in Black and Bulgari Man Extreme All Blacks 2015 Editions (RM 409 each).
The All Blacks edition of Bulgari Man in Black captures the team’s strength and potency in its sensual and woody neo-Oriental tones, while the Mediterranean freshness of Bulgari Man Extreme All Blacks is charged with a forceful and unforgettable self-assuredness, very much like the gods of the stadium themselves. As a tribute to the heroism of sporting history’s mightiest men, the charcoal and silver flacons of both fragrances feature lacquered motifs drawn from the traditional ‘moko’ facial tattoo – the ultimate symbol of a Maori warrior’s manhood and bravery.
Available at Bulgari counters end September.
