The city of Phoenix may have been called something totally different if not for a classically-trained Cambridge graduate, high-ranking Freemason, and English "Lord" named Darrell Duppa.

The flamboyant adventurer and prospector was fluent in five languages and an alcoholic when he arrived in Prescott in 1863 - around the same time Congress made arizona a territory. It's rumored that Lord Duppa was given a generous allowance from his English family to remain permanently at large.

While in Prescott, Lord Duppa met and immediately enjoyed the company of fellow prospector, Jack Swilling. Together they migrated south and became two of the first citizens in Phoenix. Duppa is the man who suggested Phoenix as the city name, in honor of the lost Hohokam civilization, upon which the city of Phoenix was built.

The Phoenix represents rebirth and endurance, the ability to rise from the ashes. It's a fit name as we still use the ancient canals of the Anasazi to irrigate land and sustain nearly 5 million people.

The scent is inspired by Abercrombie's popular Fierce cologne*. Fresh citrus notes of lemon and lime, followed by a hint of French lavender blend beautifully to open the fragrance. Seductive amber, white musk, and dark resinous garwood fold together for a complex, sexy fragrance all men and women will love.
