Justin Timberlake Fronting Two Givenchy Fragrances; Not Creating His Own
While Justin Timberlake’s face has graced the ad campaigns for Parfums Givenchy men’s fragrances, Play and Play Intense, in Europe for almost a year, don’t count on him launching his own signature scent anytime soon. WWD caught up with the multi-tasking superstar who says “there’s some level of narcissism you have to put in check” to do one. So while we won’t get to see Justin bringing sexy back for his own sake, his Givenchy fragrance campaign will be launching stateside this fall. The ads for Play and Play Intense, shot by Tom Munro, will break in September fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines — and we can’t wait! And even though the rest of Hollywood seemingly jumps into the fragrance business, Justin is content just fronting the campaigns — for now. “I don’t know that I would be completely comfortable with a my-name fragrance,” he tells WWD. “It feels like cheating, almost. It doesn’t seem like you’re creating anything.” But don’t rule out a more personal fragrance from Timberlake. “I could see doing a William Rast fragrance, but that’s as far as I think I’ll take it.” Check out more of what Justin had to say in today’s WWD and be on the look out for his Givenchy ads come fall.
