Provocative Zeta launches her own perfume

Aug 7 2004

HOLLYWOOD superstar Catherine Zeta-Jones was last night named as the inspiration behind a luxurious new perfume by beauty giants Elizabeth Arden.

"Provocative Woman" is the latest scent from the brand and was created with the "striking beauty and allure" of Catherine in mind, according to Arden sources.

Catherine has been linked with the cosmetics brand since September 2002 when she became global spokesperson for the "Open For Beauty" campaign, promoting such products as Red Door perfume and the bronzing blush range.

But this new fragrance is the first to be formulated totally in CZJ's honour, and was inspired by her ability to, as Elizabeth Arden puts it, "make men melt".

Catherine, whose son Dylan turns four tomorrow, told The Western Mail, "Provocative Woman is sensual and seductive. I love the reaction our new fragrance gets!"

This is not the first time that Elizabeth Arden has launched perfumes inspired by the Tinseltown A-list. The company has a longstanding relationship with Elizabeth Taylor and is the home of four fragrances to which the former Mrs Richard Burton lends her name.

Provocative Woman, pictured, is described by Elizabeth Arden as being "an intense fusion of tantalising Oriental ingredients combined with a sexy, magnetic floralcy", with cool top notes from water lotus and warm ones from red amber.

The print and TV campaign that will accompany the launch of the fragrance later this month shows Catherine wandering through the flooded streets of an Italian village, with the Welsh star looking, in the company's words, "larger than life, unmistakably beautiful in her own unique fashion".

The first star to act as a muse for a perfume was Audrey Hepburn for Miss Dior in 1947.
