Calvin Klein has signed True Blood star, Alexander Skarsgard as the very handsome face of its new men’s fragrance, Encounter.
Not only is this his first beauty campaign but it is also the first time Skarsgard, who plays sexy vampire Eric Northman in the hit show, has put his face to a brand. And what a great face it is; we’re smitten here in Daily Update Towers!
Alexander will star alongside model Lara Stone in the campaign, which will play up the tension between a man and a woman. Alexander told WWD; “Their idea for their concept was very intriguing to me – it was almost like a short film, and very film noir. It felt interesting to me. I wanted to be involved with something where you tell a story, even though it’s a short story.’
The fragrance, which contains notes of cardamom, rum, patchouli, cognac, and cedarwood, hits stores globally this September.
Yes, the picture on the right has absolutely nothing to do with the new fragrance… we’ve included it for no other reason than to provide our readers with some extra eye candy… enjoy!
