We’re catching up here, but better late than never, we guess.
Crooner Michael Buble’s perfume was apparently a big hit on HSN. Laid up as we are, we saw several of his appearances, and he seemed very charming, genuine and down-to-earth.
We can’t fathom why people would buy a perfume they have never smelled from TV, but apparently a lot of shoppers have no qualms about it.
Here’s the press release:
Michael Bublé’s New Fine Fragrance “By Invitation” Sells Out During HSN Launch
Michael appeared live on HSN for the US debut of his new women’s fragrance
NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Singer Michael Bublé had fans swooning when he appeared on HSN last week, to debut his exciting new fine fragrance for women, By Invitation.
The two piece set, featuring the 3.4 fl. oz Eau de Parfum Spray and the 1 fl. oz purse spray, sold out of more than 21,000 units in less than 24 hours.
Additionally, Michael’s upcoming album Nobody But Me, available later this year, was available for presale and sold nearly 6,000 units with little on-air promotion. The international superstar launched his first ever fragrance with the leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer and shared his inspiration for the fragrance and how it came to market.
“While we’re beyond pleased with Michael’s visit, his success on-air was no surprise! Michael’s loyal and engaging fan base follows him wherever he goes; from the concert stage to the studios of HSN,” said Alicia Valencia, SVP Beauty Merchandising, HSN. “We’re thrilled that his fan base aligns so well with our customer demographic, which resulted in a sell-out visit. We are eager to work with Michael and the team at Elizabeth Arden on a return visit during the holiday season.”
“It’s no secret that I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s in every note I sing and every song I write. The idea was to create a special ‘invitation’ to fans into my new world of fragrance. I’m inviting women to enjoy a beautiful scent that represents my personal taste and imagination. By Invitation is what I’d call ‘love in a bottle,'” commented Bublé. “It was an amazing experience, sharing my fragrance and story, with my fans and HSN customers,” Bublé noted about his time at HSN.
Described as “a floral oriental gourmand, encompassing the iconic flowers of love,” By Invitation is an elegant fine fragrance that’s enlightened with a fresh fruity accent. Starting with tempting top notes of red fruits and bergamot with added heart notes of lily of the valley, wild jasmine and spicy inflections of peony, By Invitation wraps with a warm base of sandalwood-musk and addictive vanillas.
“HSN has proven time and time again, to be a successful launch partner for our celebrity and designer fragrances,” said Tamara Steele, SVP, US Prestige Beauty Group at Elizabeth Arden. “From the pre-show promotion to the social media engagement, to the on-air execution, we look to HSN to deliver an exceptional experience for fans and customers alike.”
Michael Bublé’s new studio album, Nobody But Me is scheduled to be released on October 21st on Warner Bros./Reprise Records. It is his first studio album in three years.
