Iconic Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi presents new single "Scent of Dark" and releases an accompanying fragrance with Xerjoff, the Italian manufacturer of luxury fragrances. While the realm of high-end fragrance and the uncompromising heavy metal music that Iommi is known for may not seem like obvious partners at first glance, the guitarist has had an interest in fragrance for a long time.
"As soon as I started touring the world with Black Sabbath, I started discovering fragrances from other countries and started collecting them on tour."
"I met Sergio through a mutual friend. He then sent me a box of his fragrances and asked if I was interested in designing my own, which I really didn't expect,” laughs Iommi. “He developed a few different samples based on my suggestions and I picked the one I liked; The project continued from there.”
TONY IOMMI BLEND NO 1 MONKEY SPECIAL
“We went through different perfume variations with Sergio. We worked very hard to achieve the complexity I was looking for. The end result harmoniously characterizes the dark sound of my original '64 Monkey Special' guitar with spicy, seductive and rebellious notes coupled with leathery accents.” – Tony Iommi

The XERJOFF brand was launched by Sergio Momo with the aim of mixing the most luxurious materials according to traditional craftsmanship in order to create fragrances that perfectly enrich and round off any exclusive lifestyle.
The fragrance just smells 100%!
I ordered a sample and now I'm totally impressed.
I'll buy the bottle now.
Super cool scent!
Ordered a bottling to test. The scent flashed immediately. If you like Xerjoff - Erba Pura and Xerjoff - Opera, you'll do everything right with this fragrance!
Packaging is mega with an all black leather case. Nothing needs to be said about the bottle!
As usual Xerjoff typical ;-) , was a blind purchase I don't regret. .A fragrance that convinced me at the first sample. It's not often that I use up a sample completely, but this fragrance made it. A very strong but pleasant rum note can be heard from the first second to the last. The bergamot is absent for me. An intense fragrance with an outstanding sillage. It's better to smell it because, as I said, it's very intense and not for everyone. Otherwise strongly recommended
