Liv Tyler sings an INXS song in this sexy, new campaign!

Liv Tyler adds singing to her list of skills in this new ad for Givenchy!

Liv sings the classic INXS song “Tonight” for a new Givenchy perfume campaign.

The sexy commercial features 34-year-old Liv wearing a sweater and stockings, singing the rock song.

The ad is for Very Irresistible, by Givenchy.

Does this mean Liv’s going to try singing as a career, and follow in her famous father’s (Steven Tyler) foosteps? She said in a interview: “When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a singer, but never pursued it. My mom was a singer in a band, as was my dad and my stepdad Todd – I loved watching them perform. I can sing, but I don’t know how good I am.”

Liv has been the face of Givenchy since 2003. The fashion house said of the collaboration with Sony: “It’s an electrifying meeting between the world of rock and the universe of perfume.”

She looks amazing!

Axe Body Spray Launches Women’s Line Called Lynx – Will you buy?

The makers behind Axe Body spray is launching a line of fragrance for women.

The British brand has been around since 1985, and it’s ads showing beautiful women all over the men who wear Axe, are well known.

Over the years commercials showing nerds, unattractive, otherwise boring men, ending up with gorgeous model-type women. And all they had to do was use Axe body spray!!

While the ads drew criticism for their portrayal of women, you can’t argue the fact that they were successful! After almost thirty years of concentrating on men, the brand has decide to branch out into the female market.

The new fragrance, called ‘Lynx Attract’ in a “For Him” and “For Her” line will hit the shelves soon.

The launch will be accompanied by a typically racy advert – showing men and women causing chaos because they are so attracted to each other.

In previous ads, a campaign in 2004 showed how the scent gave a geeky man the confidence to dance and attract women.

This was followed by more provocative marketing – which suggested Lynx ‘turned nice girls naughty’.

Selina Sykes, Lynx Marketing Manager at Unilever UK, said: ‘This is a historic moment for Lynx as a brand.

‘For the first time in our 27 year history we are launching a male and female fragrance at the same time.’

Lynx claims ‘Attract For Him’ will drive the girls crazy with its sensual fruity and woody notes.

Meanwhile, the firm says: ‘Attract For Her perfectly complements the male scent and will drive the guys wild with its fruity, floral and woody fragrance.

‘A vibrant colourful mixture of succulent fruit creates an enticing fusion while floral notes leave a feminine accord.
‘Bottom notes of wood, musk and vanilla give the fragrance a sheer creaminess.’

The male version is described as ‘top notes of Pomegranate, apple and blueberry create a fresh scent while mid notes of violet, sage and lavender add a sharp crispness.’

My question is – would you try a Lynx body spray? Does your man use Axe? If so – what do you think about it?

Here are some promo pics from Lynx’s Facebook page.

fric-tion noun \’frik-­‐shen\

First look at Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ Fragrance

Here’s an exclusive exclusive first look at the ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ fragrance by Madonnarama!

Madonna will be featured in a global print, television, and online marketing campaign produced in collaboration with Fabien Baron, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

The print ads used for the campaign will feature photos from the Madonna photoshoot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the 2010 May issue of Interview Magazine.

‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ will include bracelets, earrings, sexy lingerie and a special Dom Pérignon champagne bottle with custom made packaging.

Press kits of the new ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ fragrance have been sent out as well.
Marie Claire’s Sergio Kletnoy, who has his own column on Daily Front Row, was one of the lucky and shared some exclusive pictures with Madonnarama.

The foreword is written by Madonna…

“There is something primal and mystical about the sense of smell. It connects us to memory, nostalgia and the ability to dream and fantasize.

I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern.

My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere. She always smelled like Gardenias and Tuberose. An intoxicating mixture. Feminine and mysterious.

I wanted to recreate this scent but with something fresh and new about it as well. Something honest and yet daring. Hence the name Truth or Dare.

We can be tricked by what we see and what we hear but not by what we smell.”

The press kit includes a vase of yellow waterlillies, a gold box, a blindfold designed by Kiki de Montparnasse, and a tiny vial of the scent.
