For all of you clamoring to smell like Chris Paul, you are in luck—the Los Angeles Clippers star is launching his own Avon fragrance.
The company that usually sells beauty and household products to women is breaking into the sports-and-dad game with a new fragrance that will launch on Father's Day.
Here is part of the release from Avon:
Avon Products, Inc. today announced that Los Angeles Clippers basketball star Chris Paul will be joining the company’s team as the face of a new men’s fragrance, Untouchable. A legend in the making, Paul—husband, proud father of two and founder of the CP3 Foundation—represents the future of basketball and the power of the will to win. The new scent will capture the thrill of hitting the court when the crowd is going wild, sinking the game-winning shot and bringing home victory.
So if you want to smell like the act of sinking a game-winning shot, you are in luck.
The campaign will also feature the guard's adorable son, Christopher Emmanuel II. As for cost, it will only be $25 available only through Avon brochures or representatives.
There will always be room in my heart and on my cologne shelf for the Michael Jordan cologne, a fragrance that carried me through some awkward years in the 90s and delivered me to some rather awkward aughts.
Either way, I am all for NBA players getting their own foo-foo juice. I am not so sure I would go out and proclaim to everyone that I am rocking the new CP3 stank.
Perhaps if I ease up on calling it a stank.
I know I was quite enthused when I got my new bottle of Michael Jordan cologne a couple of decades ago, and I might just be as ecstatic to get a bottle of ankle-breaking essence.
Then, when my wife asks what that smell is while I am dunking the dishes into the sink, I can tell her it's the new Chris Paul, and it smells like a lucrative NBA contract.
