NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ecko Unltd. delivers cool confidence with the launch of Ecko Unltd. 72. Capturing the excitement of limitless possibilities, this fragrance is for men who defy convention and push the limits at every turn. Inspired by that spirit and passion, and in honor of World Rhino Day, Ecko Unltd. 72 is proud to announce the #EckoRhinoRescue initiative. Rhinos have been around for 40 million years and are a crucial part of a wide range of ecosystems, but at the current rate of poaching rhinos face extinction in the wild in just 11 years. In partnership with Save the Rhino International, Ecko Unltd. 72 will raise funds and conservation awareness for species worldwide.
For each Instagram post featuring the rhino—whether it's a drawing, stuffed animal, or selfie in a rhino T-shirt—and tagged #EckoRhinoRescue, Ecko Unltd. 72 will donate $1 to Save the Rhino International (up to $10,000). Kicking off the initiative with an American college tour and digital campaign, Ecko Unltd. 72 is committed to helping save rhinos from extinction.
ABOUT THE FRAGRANCE
Ecko Unltd. 72 opens with the vibrant tones of Crisp Ozone, Italian Bergamot and Frozen Apple that create a cool and stimulating whisper of adventure. A subtle hint of smoke adds a layer of mystery, evoking the heady aroma of fireworks smoldering in the dark. The core is wrapped in the magnetic warmth of Amber and the soft musk of Suede, an alluring yet edgy combination. With earthy notes of Sandalwood, the base infuses the skin with a sensual essence, fueling the desire to explore new boundaries. Fresh, bold and masculine, this woody fougere fragrance ignites your drive to live fearlessly.

ABOUT SAVE THE RHINO INTERNATIONAL At the beginning of the 20th century there were 500,000 rhinos across Africa and Asia. Today only 29,000 remain in the wild. World Rhino Day, founded in 2010, is held each year on Sept. 22 to raise conservation awareness and honor all five species of rhino. Importantly, rhinos are an "umbrella species" - when rhinos are protected, many other species are too. Save the Rhino International (UK registered charity 1035072) collaborates with partners to support endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia. www.savetherhino.org
