Southern Blend embodies Tim McGraw’s genuine American spirit and pays homage to his deeply-rooted Southern values. Created by perfumer Richard Herpin, Southern Blend is multifaceted, modern and smooth…depicting the fresh energetic vibe that is Tim McGraw.
The fragrance opens with a vibrant burst of grapefruit, star anise, and bergamot. The mid notes of lavender, violet leaves and whiskey accord, add warmth to capture the more relaxed side of Tim McGraw. The rich, earthy and woody base notes of vetiver, fresh amber, and tobacco, an ingredient indigenous to the South, exudes strength and substance. All of these luxurious ingredients come together to create the ideal fragrance for the true Southern gentleman.*
