Like the other products bearing his name, Reed Krakoff is infusing his new fragrance with the modernist style and upscale positioning of his eponymous brand.

“Doing fragrance was one of my first priorities in creating my own brand — I see it as a touchstone,” said Krakoff, whose Reed Krakoff Collection is sold in his freestanding boutiques at 831 Madison Avenue in Manhattan, in Tokyo’s Aoyama district, and at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, as well as on his own Web site, at Saks Fifth Avenue, Colette in Paris, 10 Corso Como in Milan, Isetan in Japan and a selection of upscale boutiques.
