Gravel Cologne New York 1957
New York 1957, the year when Michael B. Knudsen created one of the oldest perfume brands available in the USA today; Gravel Cologne.
A decade that would make history. It was a time of change, vigor and energy.
The scenery was dominated by elegant men and women dressed to the nines, and on their heels, rebellious youth, wild and full of ideas,
ready for their turn to change the world.
Gravel Cologne perfumes capture this spirit. The timeless elegance, combined with a high intensity echoe the decade of its birth. Every fragrance is the essence of a long and eventful life. Unique and charismatic like the creator Michael B. Knudsen (born 1911), who traveled from Europe “Across the Ocean” to the USA, pursuing the “American Dream” by creating Americas first men’s fragrance “A Man’s Cologne”. Since he sold his very first bottle in New York “46th Street”, he spent decades in the American metropolis creating perfume concepts that are unrivaled until this day. Every scent gets that special something by adding stones from the “Hudson River NY”, selected and put in each bottle by hand until this day.
