Rafael Nadal announced as face of Tommy Hilfiger fragrance

NadalWith so many fragrances being launched every year it’s increasingly important for brands to secure celebrities or sporting heroes who can make their products stand out from the crowd – and Tommy Hilfiger has certainly served up an ace in the shape of tennis champ Rafael Nadal. As part of his role as Global Ambassador for the brand (you’ll probably have seen the underwear shots by now) he’s also fronting the campaign for Hilfiger’s  brand new fragrance TH Bold. Good choice huh?

Lacoste’s Limited Edition L.12.12. fragrance hits the right spot

lacosteSince my favourite sporting event, Wimbledon, is almost upon us, now seems like the perfect time for me to mention the special limited edition version of Lacoste’s Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc fragrance. Although the fragrances in the ever-expanding L.12.12 range have always referenced the famous Lacoste polo shirt in the packaging this is the first time that the tennis association has really been referenced overtly, with the clean, white packaging brought to life with touches of eye-catching tennis ball yellow. I’ve always loved the understated simplicity of both the bottles and the boxes that house the L.12.12 fragrances and, unlike many limited editions, the changes in this particular edition only serve (if you’ll excuse the pun) to make it look even better.
