Ewan McGregor Sells New Smell

ewanmcgregor Ewan McGregor Sells New Smell Actor Ewan McGregor has been named the face of Davidoff's new fragrance, according to a report in Women's Wear Daily (subscription required).

The fragrance from the makers of Cool Water, the one that smells a bit like a gin and tonic and that was worn universally by all gay men in the late 1990's, is due out at the beginning of next year.

"Ewan McGregor is a natural choice. Not only is he one of the most talented actors of his generation, but he also has a charisma and an authenticity that will be very important for the new Davidoff fragrance," said Francoise Mariez of Coty Prestige, which distributes Davidoff fragrances.

Of course if men's perfume were usually bought by the men themselves instead of their wives or girlfriends, or by gay men, a lady would be "the face" of the new fragrance.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
