Smells like fame: Johnny Depp to front Dior’s fragrance campaign

June 19, 2015

Johnny Depp may be best associated with a rugged pirate of the Caribbean, a cold loner with hands made of scissors or a demon barber with no remorse. But none can deny that any role the legendary actor takes on is characterized by a sexy stupor all his own.

Although he’s stolen the show with many a main actor role making him a gem of the silver screen, Johnny has until this day never fronted a fragrance campaign. Not until today: the heart-breaker has finally been signed up to front Dior’s latest perfume.

With Jack Sparrowean charm, the actor is said to be fronting the campaign for Dior’s new male fragrance. And while this might be his first take at fragrances, it isn’t his first stab at the fashion world. The fashionista set a precedent by previously featuring as the model for Montblanc. He’s also been plastered across the front cover of numerous notable magazines the likes of GQ and more.

Stay on the look out, with ears perked and nose holes flared for when it’ll be up for grabs. Smelling like Depp is a notion most suitable if you’re aiming to get doused in appeal.
