An elegant fragrance for men who aim high

Otto Kern Ultimate Black

An office at dusk, a sweeping city skyline behind an elegant man in modern business wear: Ambitious, driven and assertive – a man who wears Otto Kern fears no adversary on his path to success because winning is in his DNA. Whether at a business lunch with important clients, at meetings in the office or having a relaxed after-work drink with colleagues in their favourite bar – his ultimate presence is always palpable. He matchlessly embodies modern elegance combined with unmistakable masculinity. This man has a vibrant aura, always achieves his goals and accepts nothing but the best. Otto Kern Ultimate Black embodies this expression of self-confidence with an elegant yet masculine fragrance with oriental nuances. The fragrances and associated care products will be available in stores from the end of September 2021.

The concept Masculine, self-confident, elegant, casual – since their launch in 2008, the Otto Kern fragrances have consistently been among the most popular men's fragrances and are currently the 4th most successful lifestyle fragrances for men in the German bridge-brand market. Otto Kern Ultimate Black is the bespoke composition for men who aim high. The concept builds on the success factors of the classic Otto Kern Signature which has become a fixture at the top of fragrance sales lists since 2008.*

In the base note, the fragrance ends in a magical symphony of warm, sensual nuances and dry, distinctive woods that emphasise the ultimate character of the man.

  • Top note: Zimt, rosa Pfeffer
  • Heart notes: Nagarmotha grass, sage, lavender
  • Base note: Cedar, tonka beans, amber

elegant – oriental – masculine

Whatever the workday brings, Otto Kern Ultimate Black is the perfect companion for men who radiate masculinity, success and self-confidence.



The design
Otto Kern Ultimate Black is attired in black to match its name. The box sets the tone with a full-surface gloss finish and the prominent inclusion of the famous Otto Kern logo which has been finished with hot foil embossing both on the box and on the flacon. The striking coat of arms emphasises the elegant and high-quality look of the range. The black spray finish on the flacon provides the perfect counterpart to the box and emphasises the high-quality style of the concept. The relief incorporated into the cap of the flacon gives it a masculine look and feel. A classy look that makes an impression just like the self-confident elegance of business wear!
