Mr. Timberlake will be gracing our magazines come September in the ad campaigns for not one, but two Givenchy men's fragrances: Play and Play Intense. The suits at LVMH told WWD that they were looking for a new face for fragrance that would be recognized around the world. “Most importantly, we needed to find a man who could embody the modern elegance specific to the Givenchy brand as well as all the facets of Play,” said Pamela Baxter, president and chief executive officer of LVMH Perfumes & Cosmetics N.A..
