Otto Kern Never Hide for her
Self-assured and very feminine: the OTTO KERN NEVER HIDE fragrance for women is a feminine character fragrance. A slightly salty touch in combination with fresh bergamot makes for a surprise in the head note. The juicy pear, too, gives off an unusual, fruity aroma. White peonies, a hint of freesia, and petals of seductive jasmine unfurl a sensuous note in the heart. A gentle final note of amber caresses the wearer.

Otto Kern Never Hide for him
Attractive masculinity: the Otto Kern Never Hide fragrance for men unites classic and aromatically distinctive fragrance notes. Refreshing green apple and spicy, fruity pink pepper berries dominate the head note. Fougère elements with lavender make up the distinctively masculine heart of an OTTO KERN fragrance for men. Patchouli and dry, warm woods, as well as a hint of almondy tonka bean, give the fragrance a laconic final note.

The stylish design of Otto Kern Never Hide scores points for its attention-grabbing accents. The lettering on the packaging and the words Never Hide embossed on the glass of the bottle really catch the eye. The product portfolio for women is resplendent in summery white, combined with a bright shade of coral. Otto Kern Never Hide for him appeals to men with its masculine dark grey in combination with a cool, loud shade of blue, and with white.

Otto Kern Signature Man

Otto Kern Signature Man

The fragrance has a persuasive self-assurance and the seductive power of vigorous masculinity combined with a laid-back charm – a discreet yet exclusive companion. Bergamot, cardamom and mugwort provide a spicy, fresh elegance in the head note. Lavender, orange flower and cinnamon captivate in the heart note, fading into an elegant base note of tonka bean, musk and cedar wood.

The heavy glass bottle features a novel central detail made of glossy plastic in deep black. The Otto Kern crest is featured as a central design element.

Otto Kern Signature Supreme

Otto Kern Signature Supreme

The fragrance Otto Kern Signature Supreme is a perfect combination of modernity and masculinity. A men’s fragrance created for the determined man, who with his confidence manages to distinguish himself from the masses and make a distinct mark.

A modern, masculine fragrance that combines a vitalizing, invigorating freshness in its top note with a soothing, warm oriental layer in its base note.

The core brand values are combined in the product's design: the crest has always served as a seal of quality at Otto Kern Fashion; that is why the crest is featured as a central design element in Otto Kern Signature Supreme as well. Here, the bottle show-cases a glass body with clear lines uniquely emphasised by extraordinary edging with a high-gloss, piano-lacquer finish.

Otto Kern Commitment Man
The fragrance opens with an energy-laden, radiant chord of grapefruit, lime and fresh “blue mint”. The heart note unfolds to reveal fiery cardamom, aromatic wormwood and the spicy warmth of nutmeg. In the base Otto Kern Commitment Man makes a stylish statement with elegant cedar wood, vetiver and the timeless appeal of patchouli.
