Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has released his very own men’s aftershave and just in time for Father’s Day.
And if you think it stinks of sweat, VB, a stale pack of B&H and a top note of crotch rub, think again! B&T’s had a whiff and it’s a good, manly scent that should keep the flies away come summer.
The scent is called SW23 by Shane Warne, the “23” part being Warnie’s famous number he wore in one-day internationals.
A 100mls of the stuff will set you back a cool $49.95 and it appears it’s only available at your local Chemist Warehouse.
According to the official tasting notes, SW23 “opens” with “notes of fresh bergamot, mandarin leaf, cardamom and crisp apple” and then “transcends, develops and intensifies with mid notes of juniper berry, lavandin, clary sage and wild mint” before finishing with “bold base notes of Indonesian patchouli, birch wood, oak moss and leather accord”.
According to media reports, most celebs who endorse a bottom-end fragrance can expect about $1 return for each bottle sold.
Warnie’s expected to flog about 100,000 bottles and he’s said he’ll donate his share to an unspecified charity.
Commenting on his new pong, the 51-year-old told The Daily Telegraph: “I’ve had some good feedback from women, they seem to like this. People will notice you wearing it and they will comment on how wonderful you smell. It creates conversation and will make you feel happy, confident and sophisticated.”
