Get Ready to 'Play': Justin Timberlake Fronts Givenchy's New Scent

He’s already made fans swoon as the face of Givenchy’s Play for Him fragrance–and now Justin Timberlake is taking on the ladies appearing in the new Play for Her campaign. The singer admits that being asked to front the brand’s female scent came as a shock. “I said, ‘You guys should go find a woman to help put this out,'” Timberlake tells WWD. But after hearing Givenchy’s vision for the campaign, set in a dark and dreamy Paris alongside New Moon siren Noot Seear, he was sold: “I thought, Oh that kind of makes sense.” The print ad, shot by Tom Munro, features the duo linked with a set of headphones tucked discreetly into Timberlake’s pocket, before the sparkling City of Lights. Like Play for Him, Givenchy Play for Her will be housed in a bottle that echoes a digital music player, and will come in two versions: A sparkling eau de parfum that includes notes of bergamot and white peach, and Intense, a more sensual jus of orange blossom, pink peppercorns, and sandalwood. Both will hit stores this October with prices starting at $48 for a 30 ml bottle. Tell us: Do you want to “Play” with Justin? –Jessie Goldberg

The majority of womens cologne are either too sweet, fruity, or smell like the bottom of a paper bag. I only hope that this fragrance will smell better. I don’t quite get the connection of Justin selling womens cologne, as I am sure he doesn’t wear it and his men’s frangrance doesn’t smell too good!

Wear this and you too can smell cheap and blah, LOL celebrity perfumes are a joke, most of them smell like true toilet water (used that is)

Dear Justin,
please stop the acting and commercials. Go back to the studio and make a new album.

Just to set the record straight: This is NOT Justin’s fragrance! He is only the face of the campaign, like Kiera Knightley and Nicole Kidmann were for Chanel. This is NOT a celebrity perfume. It was developed by a Fashion House.

Also, Justin Timberlake is an absoulte star, with a lot of talent. He has the opportunity to spread that talent across the industry and the luxury to learn along the way… why would he not take advantage of that? Keep it up, JT!
