The great smell of Desmo...

What to get for the Ducati fan who has everything…

First there was riding gear, then T-shirts and watches… and now Ducati have ventured into the cosmetics business with a range of aftershaves, showergels and more. Makes a change from chain lube anyway!

It’s called “1926” and denotes the year in which Ducati was founded. Coming in a line of Eau de Toilet 50ml and 100ml bottles, a shower gel and a deodorant spray.


Being a smelly thing, we obviously can’t whiff it through the screen of our phones or mobile devices, but the Ducati press release reads:

“The top notes offer a decisively aromatic accent, juxtaposed against the bracing freshness of tangerine and a bitter hint of bergamot. Middle notes offer renewed balance, with delicious inklings of cocoa enveloping the timeless elegance of lavender, accompanied by the firmness of geranium. The base notes merge practicality and aesthetics with a powerful hint of cedar and intense notions of amber, all softened by a vanilla and Tonka bean wrapping.” 


The fragrance has come about as a collaboration and licensing agreement between the Italian manufacturer and leading cosmetics firm Diamond International.
