GRAVEL HUDSON RIVER NY

A fresh spicy unisex fragrance.
An homage to the pebbles from the Hudson that make each bottle of GRAVEL unique. When Michael Knudsen was walking along the Hudson River in the mid-1950s, he came up with the idea of using gravel from the Hudson River to create a unique brand and stand out from the standard perfumery. Since that day, Knudsen made GRAVEL the focus of his perfumery.

Gravel Hudson River NY is one of Gravel's later creations and refers to the pebbles that make each bottle unique and are still added by hand. The idea for the name Gravel came from a walk Michael Knudsen took along the Hudson River, where he first took pebbles from the Hudson and added them to a perfume. It was on this day that the concept for Gravel was born. The idea behind it was to make perfume more interesting for men in the USA, since back then men rejected perfume in the USA. This was to change in the late 50s and early 60s thanks to Gravel. After the success of A Man's Cologne, which was the first men's perfume in the USA, he kept the concept of gravel in each flacon and built the Gravel brand, around the ingredient gravel, for men’s fragrances, women’s fragrances as well as unisex perfumes.
This initially fresh, floral fragrance unfolds its full aromas after a short period on the skin and develops a woody, spicy note that is rounded off by a subtle vanilla note.
Gravel New York 1957 is only available in selected boutiques.
