Antonio Banderas Seduction in Black for Men ~ new fragrance

Antonio Banderas Seduction in Black

Antonio Banderas has launched Seduction in Black for Men, a follow up to 2007's Blue Seduction for Men:

Seduction in Black is a daring interpretation of the Blue Seduction fragrance, taking its seductive facet to the next level.

It emphasizes woody, ambary [sic] and oriental accords, enhanced by an original and interesting spicy note that embodies the fragrance's freshness and sensuality.

Antonio Banderas Seduction in Black is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. (via antoniobanderasfragrances)

Update: Seduction in Black is a "fresh aromatic woody and ambery scent" and was developed by perfumer Olivier Cresp. (via wwd)

    Never smelled any of his offerings so can’t comment on them – but am I the only one who thinks his face looks weird? It’s as if someone put an invisible thread through the corner of his mouth then yanked it up to his ear. I suppose he’s meant to look – uh – seductive; but he just looks uncomfortable to me.

    • Robin says:

      I spent a long time looking at it this morning…it’s a very odd shot.

    • TwoPeasInAPod says:

      It looks like a Botox grin.

      • Robin says:

        Oh, that could be it.

      • miss kitty v. says:

        Maybe he and Melanie Griffith are sharing a plastic surgeon now.

    • sharviss says:

      Agreeing with all of you. I am not feeling seduced!

    • mmjunkie says:

      I totally agree. His facial expression just looks odd. Reminds me of the Latisse ad in my Allure mag – Brooke Shields has the same weird grin. Maybe it’s a new celebrity fad.

      Fragrance sounds worth a try, although even if I thought DH would like it, he probably wouldn’t wear it. Not too into the celebriscents.

      • miss kitty v. says:

        “New celebrity fad”= Botox.

  2. LaMaroc says:

    At the very least he looks simpering not seducing. But the more I look at the more it seems like he is being inflicted with bodily harm by someone who smells very bad. :P

  3. Tama says:

    He does look like he’s been pulled a bit tight. And then paralyzed with Botox. I kind of like the retro-ish typeface and simple bottle. But I have already forgotten about it….

    • Robin says:

      The bottle is fine. I’ve never smelled any of the scents though.

      • miss kitty v. says:

        They’ve all been pretty underwhelming. Nothing special. Not horrible, just forgettable.

  4. margot says:

    It strikes me that Tony needs to use a different front man if he wants to continue in the celebrity perfume biz. He seems less than seductive; more like a middle aged guy stumbling through an identity crisis.
    I’m sure he’s a perfectly nice man, but … I think he’s gotten some bad advice.

    • Robin says:

      Might be good advice though: I think his fragrances do quite well.

  5. vickyjane says:

    Where did his lips go?

  6. Donald says:

    This doesn’t even look like Banderas. I’ll forever think of him as he appeared in the 1980s films of Pedro Almodóvar.

    • Santemon says:

      Oh yessssss, if only he had stayed in Spain, remained in his 20s and NEVER met Melanie Griffiths… If only….

  7. yzahbelle says:

    i cant help to compare Ted Lapidus’ Black Soul>>
    the ads, the name, the notes (little), but the difference is black soul’s target market is for young men but seduction black totally for 50’s and above…

    • Robin says:

      Good point. This one is better named.

  8. RusticDove says:

    I have to agree that he looks downright silly. And the shirt unbuttoned down to ‘there’ is an obnoxious touch so that doesn’t help. Other than that, he’s a seductive little devil, I guess. LOL

    • Robin says:

      Yeah. It’ll sell in any case.
