Though old Hollywood might have been a muse, both fragrances are also a reflection of the modern lavish lifestyles of Russo’s clientele. As one of the world’s leading photographers, Russo has traveled the globe to shoot Hollywood and fashion elite, along the way drawing inspiration from each new sight, sound and scent. From the indulgent and impeccable gardens of France to the
powerful and pungent spice markets of Morocco, Russo has plenty of experience with the vibrant and beautiful. “Photograph Women” is an intoxicating, watery, fruity, white floral scent – very feminine and clean – with top notes of freesia, melon, peach, grapefruit and lemon. Its middle notes are comprised of muguet (Lily of the Valley), rose, lavender and gardenia with musky, amber- y base notes. “Photograph Men” favors an earthy, woody vibe with top notes of mandarin, orange, bergamot, lemon and bay oil. Middle notes include lavender, ginger, leather and clove with a musky, smoky, tobacco base note.
“I’ve always had an eye for beauty and a nose for amazing aromas,” Russo says. “I've also always wanted to have my own line of products and developing a fragrance seemed like the natural first step, a great way to bridge these worlds I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of.”
John Russo began his trek to the top of the list of celebrity photographers in 1995. He has shot the likes of Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, John Travolta, Cindy Crawford, Ryan Reynolds, Kim Kardashian and Kevin Spacey to name a few. His work has been featured on the covers of Vogue, Elle, GQ, Esquire, Marie Claire, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour and many more of the world’s top publications. Russo is, in addition, an avid tennis player and counts the ATP among his hundreds of clients. If not behind a camera, he can usually be found on the courts perfecting his game.
