NEW YORKJuly 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Kenneth Cole and Parlux LTD. announce the launch of MANKIND LEGACY, the newest addition to the MANKIND fragrance collection.  MANKIND LEGACY is a dynamic new scent that celebrates the modern altruist, reminding us all of the opportunity to create a legacy of our own.

MANKIND LEGACY, brings an exciting edge to the MANKIND collection.  The fragrance has elements that awaken the senses and inspire you to make your mark. Opening with a combination of citrus and icy aromatic notes of sage provides a lively freshness and surge of energy; Comforting rosemary follows, imparting a feeling of well-being. Warm, reassuring notes of vetiver and amyris create a long-lasting scent that asserts confidence.

“The inspiration to create this fragrance came from the notion that legacy-building is not about what we might achieve one day, it’s about what we can accomplish every day,” says Kenneth Cole, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer at Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc.  “I believe that we live in a complicated world with increasing possibilities, and as more and more people determine their purpose and realize their potential, the more meaningful it all becomes.”

Cole partnered with perfumer Stephen Nilsen to develop the new fragrance. Nilsen states, “While the finely crafted scent fits the Kenneth Cole brand legacy of impeccable grooming, it is the emotional legacy we impart that I wanted to capture in a scent.”
