Paul Sebastian was an American brand launched in 1979 by Leonard Paul Cuozzo and Alan Sebastian Greco after Cuozzo created a #men’s fragrance he wanted to sell. Relying on the business expertise of Greco, who was a national sales manager for a multi-industry company at the time, the pair marketed their cologne in the New Jersey area to three men’s clothing stores. Their fragrance was a hit and within two years they expanded distribution to over 300 stores. Despite its success, Paul Sebastian did not gain its following in the traditional way. The company did not embark on any national advertising campaigns, rather it choose to focus on building relationships with their distributors who were in many instances, specialty stores. Paul Sebastian was also the inventor of the “gift with purchase” concept. It started with stuffed animals in the beginning and then moved onto fine porcelain pieces which matched the fragrance it was promoting—a sales tactic that soon became the company’s trademark. Though Paul Sebastian Inc was sold in 1999 by Cuozzo and Greco, the popular fragrances are still produced today.
The launch fragrance, a men’s cologne entitled Paul Sebastian, is the top selling cologne at Perfume.com. It is a mixture of spices, sweet florals and citrus with soft musky undertones—a refined masculine scent. The first #women’s perfume, Design, did not arrive until 1985 along with the matching men’s cologne. Casual, another women’s perfume and men’s cologne pairing notable of mention was introduced in 1995.

Ten years after Design, Paul Sebastian catered to women who weren’t into operatic florientals and sweet lushness with a light and airy floral which captures those moments when we feel at ease and like home. Casual, like its name suggests, is a cozy, carefree scent comprised of a classic floral bouquet projecting at the pitch of a hushed alto. Long lasting and perfect for summer wear; it’s unobtrusive enough to be carried at the office in small amounts too.

Design Perfume for Women
The snow-blind white of the gardenia and tuberose blossoms sparkle with beguiling sweetness, with narcotic opulence; the atmosphere instantly becomes dreamy upon inhaling their emanations. But the beautiful can be rendered dangerous if you smell too much of either. Paul Sebastian stops just short of the haunting dark intentions engulfing you with his Design, adding a garland of tempering elements with a soapy vibe (orange blossom, rose and jasmine) and some spice (carnation’s clove-y hint) for good balance. The insinuating base, though, full of animalistic civet, recalls vintage perfumes of yore, when women were real women and had men for breakfast.
Created: 1985 Type: Floral – Oriental
Top Note: Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Peach, Jasmine. Middle Note: Honeysuckle, Carnation, Gardenia, Lilac, Ylang-Ylang, Rose. Base Note: Sandalwood, Black Currant, Musk, Civet.
