Adam Levine Aftershave & Men's Fragrance
Adam Levine (born in 1979 in Los Angeles, California) is the front man for the popular pop band Maroon 5. His interest for music started at the age of 10, and by the time he was 16 he had formed his first band, Kara's Flowers, with three of his class mates from High School; Mickey Madden, Jesse Carmichael, and Ryan Dusick.
The hugely popular TV drama Beverly Hills 90210, had Kara's Flowers play on one episode in 1997, but unfortunately the interest in the band wasn't as great as Adam and three other members had hoped for, so the band dissolved and the members went their separate ways.
Jesse Carmichael and Adam Levine went to New York to pursue further studies, but returned to California in 2000 where they met up with Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick. It was decided to relaunch the band, but this time they added a new member, guitarist James Valentine, and they renamed the band Maroon 5.
Their debut album, called “Songs About Jane”, was songs written about an ex girlfriend of Adam's and sold around 10 million copies. "Moves like Jagger” from 2011 was another big hit for Maroon 5 and became the ninth-best-selling digital single of 2011 (sales of 8.5 million copies).
Maroon 5 have received three Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and a World Music Award.
Adam’s first TV appearance was in 2007 on the popular show, Saturday Night Live and on Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars" as well as Jimmy Kimmel Live! In 2008 he publicly endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential Election.
In 2011 he became a judge on the talent TV show, The Voice. Team Adam had the first winner of the show, Javier Colon, as well as Season 5 winne, Tessanne Chin as well as Season 9 winner Jordan Smith. Levine hoped that “The Voice” would change the public appearance of him, as not just some half naked singer who dated beautiful women, but as someone with a brain. It would appear that he was right, #TeamAdam and @AdamLevine scored a respective 203,000 and 2.14 million Twitter mentions in the show's third season, higher than all the other coaches.
Adam Levine had his debut on the big screen in 2013 with the film Begin Again where he played the ex-boyfriend of Keira Knightley. The film got good reviews at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Adam has also appeared in American Horror Story: Asylum where he played Leo Morrison, a newly-wed photographer visiting modern-day Briarcliff Manor, an insane asylum. Adam thought the role would be “right up my alley" as it sounded “hysterical, funny, dark and cool”.
As a front man for Maroon 5 and possible due to his appearance on the voice Adam Levine has been in the public eye for some time which has led him to appear on several lists throughout his carrier. In 2008 People's Magazine put him on their "Single and Sexy Men" list, in 2012 he was ranked #41 on Glamour's "Sexiest Men of 2012" list and same year he was ranked Number 7 on Shalom Life’s list of "Top 50 Hottest Jewish men in the world". In 2013, Levine was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive (Levine is the first singer and the second non-actor, after John F. Kennedy, Jr., to claim this title).
In 2011 Adam Levin famously tweeted that he wanted people launching celebrity fragrances “punishable by death from this point forward.“ It must be presumed that he since changed his mind as he in 2013 launched his own fragrance for men, Adam Levine for Men which is available as an Eau de Toilette. Adam said of the scent that he wanted something basic and very intimate, something understated and elegant, something he would be attracted to. It's a fresh scent featuring citrus fruits like mandarin and grapefruit on a woody base.
