Beginner's Guide to Flanker Perfumes and Colognes

Often, when a first-release movie becomes incredibly popular and reviewed well by the masses - a sequel release is only a matter of time away. While sequels are easy to sell because they ride on the reputation of the original, we all know that sequels are rarely as good as the original. Flanker colognes and perfumes are essentially the same!

What are Flanker Colognes and Perfumes?

A flanker is a new fragrance that a brand releases as a variation of an existing, often successful, perfume or cologne. These flankers usually retain a part of the original fragrance's essence but introduce some new olfactory elements or thematic twists. Brands create flankers to capitalize on the popularity of the original scent while offering something new to consumers.

Notable Examples of Flanker Releases:

1.) Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de l'Homme Eau de Parfum (Flanker of La Nuit de l'Homme): This EDP version enhances the spicy and woody accords of the original, offering a more intense and long-lasting scent.

3.)  Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (Flanker of Marc Jacobs Daisy): A fruitier and more whimsical version of Daisy, with notes of raspberry, pear, and rose, catering to a younger audience.
