Flores-Roux describes Dark Rebel Rider, sharing that it “captures the heart and soul of rebelliousness and bad boy idols through ultra-sexy leather and ambery notes.” Describing the scent’s notes, he continues, “It is luminous but has incredible gravitas and depth; it is supple and sensual but delivers a punch. It is voluminous but never heavy, it is an extraordinary olfactive chiaroscuro.”
