Pitbull, the musician, got his stage name from pitbull the dog breed, and dogs are masters at marking their territory!
But while canines tend to wiz on different things to claim them, Pitbull has decided to take another approach — through a line of fragrances!!
The Miami native is launching his very first men’s and women’s scents, both titled Pitbull, on New Year’s eve and will have an unveiling at his NYE concert in Miami that evening.
So why branch into fragrance? Many reasons, one of which is his upbringing!
“Being raised by nothing but women, my mother was my father. I was always around these great-smelling products and I would see the way [his mother] would mix them up and wear different outfits. I was always intrigued by fragrance.”
However, he didn’t want his scents to be TOO overpowering, like some of the ones he’s encountered on others in the past. Pitbull reminisces about Miami men in the 80s, saying that many:
“always had a heavy smell to them. Personally I wasn’t a big fan of that – I was more about a softer, sexier smell. I’m in the business of attracting women, not men.”
To get a sense of the masterful creations the performer has created, here are the descriptions of the juices:
The women’s eaux de toilette has a top note of raspberries, crisp red apples and sunny mandarin, has a heart of nectarine blossom, freesia and jasmine, and has a base of creamy woods, amber, vanilla and musk. It will be sold in three sizes: 1 oz. for $30, 1.7 oz. for $45, and 3.4 oz. for $55.
The men’s eaux de toilette has sun-drenched bergamot, mandarin, cardamom and sage top notes, a heart of violet, woods and verbena, and a base of sultry vetiver, musk, rich tonka bean and amber. It will also be available in three sizes for the same prices as the women’s, but will also be offered as a 3.4-oz. aftershave for $36 and a 2.6-oz. deodorant stick for $14.
To get your paws on what’s sure to be the ultimate nostril pleasure, you can begin pre-ordering the fragrances on December 1st. After the launch date, the product will be available exclusively on Amazon.com until Valentine’s day on February 14th!
