Red carpet : Cristiano Ronaldo releases debut “Legacy” fragrance
Cristiano Ronaldo has already conquered the worlds of sports and fashion, and now the football star once again expanded his empire, this time into the perfume industry. The 30-year-old unveiled his debut fragrance Cristiano Ronaldo Legacy this week at an exclusive bash held in Madrid.
Partnering with Eden Parfums for his new venture into the perfuming world, Cristiano revealed during the glitzy party why he had decided to make the move.
“Creating my own fragrance is something that I have always dreamed of doing,” he explained.
“Fragrance is a real passion of mine – I believe you can really tell a lot about a person from the scent they wear – so having the chance to create my own was an amazing opportunity. I believe everyone should have a signature scent and I wanted to create something that’s timeless and can be worn every day.”
“It was important to me that the bottle design matched the fragrance inside – I wanted it to be masculine and classic,” he added. “A fragrance bottle should look good in your bathroom cabinet and the black and gold design is luxurious.”
The Portuguese sporting champion also opened up about his own grooming routine, revealing how he gets ready for major events.
“I really enjoy the luxury of having a wet shave and a hot shower,” he said. “If I have a big event then I enjoy taking more time to get ready. Once I’m dressed, the last thing that I do is spray fragrance, as that is the finishing touch to my grooming routine.”
“I wear casual or sports clothes most of the time so I like it when I get the opportunity to dress up smart,” he later added. “I always feel good in a crisp shirt and tailored suit.”
Cristiano also admitted that he plans to continue his already highly successful empire, which includes various collaborations including his highly successful underwear range CR7 Underwear.
“Off the pitch, I’m loving the opportunities I have to be creative in areas that I’m passionate about,” he said. “I really enjoyed the process of creating my first ever fragrance and am excited to share it with everyone. I hope to have the opportunity to create more in the future.”
