Maria Sharapova soon to unveil her own fragrance line

I don't know if it's true but.... I found some sources here........

http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/Winnip...18/633720.html

From Bill Scheft of Sports Illustrated: "(Maria) Sharapova is coming out with her own signature line of perfume. I have no idea what it smells like, but I guarantee the fragrance will last three years longer than the Anna Kournikova perfume."

NEW YORK -- For those who want to hit like Maria Sharapova, her racket -- The Turbo Shark MP -- went on sale Wednesday. For those who want to smell like Maria Sharapova, well, that's coming soon.

An informed source told ESPN.com that Sharapova will soon be unveiling a fragrance line. When reached early Thursday morning, Sharapova's agent Max Eisenbud declined to comment.

Sharapova has clearly become the marketing darling of the tennis world since winning Wimbledon. At the U.S. Open, Nike has been selling the outfits she is wearing at the gift shops and posters of her are all over Prince's on-site display.

However, her recent marketing deals -- including a three-year deal with Motorola that sources say is worth more than $1 million per year and now the fragrance -- have pointed to the fact that the 17-year-old Russian beauty is already on her way to transcending the sport.

Inking out-of-sport endorsements are usually reserved for the elite, but at No. 7 in the world, the buzz is building. Sharapova won her first-round U.S. Open match in three sets on Tuesday night and also won her first-round mixed doubles match, with Max Miryni, in front of a big crowd on Wednesday.

Sharapova wouldn't be setting a precedent in debuting her own line of scented products.

None other than NBA superstar Michael Jordan debuted a cologne in 1996. Sales reportedly reached $130 million in the product's first two years on the market. The NBA and the NFL have also had league-licensed scents on the market.

09/03/2004 .....Ode De Sharapova

The other day I read that tennis star Maria Sharapova is gonna have her own fragrance, and that got me to thinking...


Whole Script


There ain't no doubt that Wimbledon Champion Maria Sharapova is a real looker. In fact, in my humble opinion, she makes her Russian tennis compatriot Anna Kornikova look like she been rode hard and put up wet.

Well, now Sharapova is starting to face the rewards of being a tennis star and a raving beauty. The tool of her trade, a racquet called The Turbo Shark MP, is selling like hotcakes, and she's signed a million-dollar endorsement deal with Motorola. Now Sharapova's gonna have her own fragrance.

Sharapova ain't the first athlete to inspire a perfume. Michael Jordan launched a cologne in 1996. Sales reached $130 million. And the NBA and NFL both have officially-licensed scents.

I ain't a cologne-wearer myself. The stuff makes my eyes water and leads to a sneezing fit. And I don't understand how an athlete can inspire a scent. What's the Maria Sharapova perfume gonna smell like – sweaty tennis shoes?

If I was ever to inspire a scent myself, I believe it would be a combination of alfalfa hay and a good vinegar-based barbecue sauce.

Leonard's Loser – All them suckers that are gonna buy Ode De Sharapova.

That's funny...

Good for her. It may give her something to fall back on after her tennis day's are over.

lol And I thought Jordan's cologne sucked. I even remember Conan O'Brien's
"In the year 2000" skit dissing it.

It does kinda make you wonder if she's going too far, but the results are there, or have been so...

The same thing they done to ANNA, turn her into a marketing hot dog, instead of a tennis player.

There goes the next 10 grand slams out the window for Maria. Hello 2nd round paychecks, goodbye grand slam trophies.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Oh well...As long as Maria spends no more than 1 minute per year on this fragrance thing...I don't mind...

But I'm afraid that won't happen............
