Their new scents are called Intimately Yours, and David and Victoria Beckham certainly get up close and personal in their latest ad campaign, which shows the footballer and his wife embark on a series of clinches in a lift.
The fragrances are claimed to capture ‘the passion and power’ of their relationship, and David has said the couple wanted to create perfumes “that reflect both our individual personalities and our lives together”.
In that case, we’d say Mr Beckham is light and airy and his wife is deeper and slightly more exotic. Because Intimately Yours Men is categorised as an oriental citrus aromatic, but smells a lot fresher to us. It has notes of blood orange, lemon zest and green leaves with sage, lavender and basil that dry down to sandalwood, vetiver and tonka beans.
Victoria’s, however – a floral oriental - is sweeter and more powerful, with distinctive frangipani and lily drying down to the same sandalwood and vetiver as her husband’s. Both fragrances smell completely different. And we think Victoria’s is the most memorable.
They’re available now, from £20 each in eau de toilette only.
