Kylie Minogue has been putting out a number of perfumes under her name since her debut one Darling in 2006. I have somewhat lost track of all of them because they resemble each others too much in names, colors, concept. When perfumes aim for indifferenciation, or more nicely put, brand cohesion, my brain tends to respond adequately.
Still, I covered two sequels, Sweet Darling (2007) and Showtime (2008). There is also a Sexy Darling and a recent 2009 Couture. Now on to something a little different, I guess...
The singer had said in the past that she wanted to do a men's fragrance for beau Olivier Martinez on what turned out to be the eve of her breakup with her then boyfriend (watch this space become a gossip column -- oops, sorry, it's already become one).
Her heart breaks. Separates. Picks herself up. In 2009 creates new men's fragrance featuring new boyfriend Spanish model Andres Velencoso Segura who looks not unlike Olivier Martinez.
The Chinese version of You Tube is already displaying a TV commercial featuring both Kylie and Andres. I am not sure this is the definitive polished version as it could look a bit like a pilot, but you can catch a glimpse of the new cologne which, how telling, can be turned around and reveal another front.
Is Inverse Kylie Minogue's life stance about men in a nutshell? Women will appreciate, men (especially Olivier Martinez) will also appreciate.
