    oh wow…

  2. Angelica:

    It’s supposed to be a men’s scent from 1957. I heard that you can purchase the NEW Gravel in Germany. They do not sell the old one anymore and it is carried in a different bottle. Good luck and I hope that you find out more.

  3. Erik:

    From Basenotes: “Called the 800 number posted by Howard and to my surprise, spoke to the gentleman who actually mixed this formula almost 50 years ago. He got his big break with it when Dave Garoway interviewed him on the Today Show. He named it Gravel so that men would not fear wearing a “cologne” (not as popular a thing as today). I ordered a bottle ($45 I think) and looks and smells exactly as it did when I first used it 35 years ago. It’s worth the call just for the interesting conversation with its inventor!”

    Cool huh?

  4. A Treasury of:

    This mysterious cologne strikes me as slightly fantastic, yes…

    But also surreal like a satire, Francesco Vezzoli-style, no?


  5. DCruz:

    See Peter Levin’s “Gravel”

  8. ConcreteMatt:

    I love the look of the bottle and want some of this stuff but what is dealio? Do I need to go to New York, Germany or 1957 to find it?

  13. Mike Gravel's Sister Inlaw:

    Gravel Cologne is quite real and there is only one original formula. The original scent is sold in Germany from the original owner. There is no “new” Gravel to speak of…BUT the bottles have changed slightly over the years but the rocks in the bottle have not.

    You can get Gravel Cologne info by emailing me..Mike Gravel’s sister inlaw at
