The New York Yankees can brag about things other MLB teams can’t. They have won 40 American League Pennants and 27 World Series titles. This is the list of Baseball Hall of Famers who have been associated with the pinstripes. Away from the field the Yankees are one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, coming in #3 on Forbes’ list last year with a value of $1.7 billion. Adding to that net worth will be sales from fragrances for both men and women.
The scents, created by Cloudbreak Group, a fragrance brand developer, are now available at Yankee Stadium and at retailers including Macy’s. The fragrances come in 1-, 1.7- and 3.4-ounce bottles.
The cologne is a “fresh wood fragrance” that “really captures a fresh, clean element on top with citrus notes and aromatic notes,” Ms. Mullarkey [vice president for fragrance and product development at Cloudbreak] said, “with woodiness, earthy patchouli and aromatic suede.” She called the perfume “a sparkling gourmand,” with floral notes and a flavorful muskiness.
Cloudbreak’s chief executive, Tom Butkiewicz, who came up with the idea for the fragrances, said of the Yankees: “They’re a prestige brand. They’re a brand that exudes class.” Another Cloudbreak official, Duncan Bird, the creative director, said the fragrances aimed to bottle “the unique sense of swagger that the Yankees have.”
