Calvin Klein Names Margot Robbie Face of Deep Euphoria

Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria ad

The original Euphoria launched in 2005, with a follow-up, Endless Euphoria, nine years later. Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova was the face of the first Euphoria campaign and model Vanessa Axente the face of Endless Euphoria. Now Calvin Klein has tapped Margot Robbie as the face of its Deep Euphoria women’s fragrance. Calvin Klein presents the new fragrance Deep Euphoria as a variation on the theme of the original Euphoria, which, although a flanker, is allegedly bringing a completely new composition of clear chypre-floral character to the table. Unlike the rest of the collection, Deep Euphoria will stand as a separate pillar within the line, side by side with the Original, as the ‘more modern, empowered sister’ to the existing two fragrances.

It’s the first time Robbie has fronted a fragrance brand. The 25 year old actress, will appear in the global print and television advertising campaign for Deep Euphoria. She perfectly embodies the modern femininity. It’s a big summer for the actress who rose to star status after appearing in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ in 2013. Robbie will star as Jane Porter in this summer’s highly anticipated ‘The Legend of Tarzan’, as well as ‘Suicide Squad’.

Imagining an elevated and sophisticated woman was the idea behind the original Euphoria. The Deep Euphoria woman is still elevated and sophisticated, but she’s also empowered and slightly younger. Calvin Klein women are confident, provocative and released, and Deep Euphoria woman embodies all these aspects with an additional layer of adventure.

Encounter by Calvin Klein will be advertised by handsome actor Alexander Skarsgard and gorgeous model Lara Stone. Alexander Skarsgård is riding high due to his spellbinding performance as the alternately smoldering and cold-blooded vampire Eric Northman in the smash HBO hit True Blood. Now Calvin Klein is harnessing the Swedish actor’s sexual energy by making him the face of their newest men’s fragrance, Encounter.

It felt interesting to me. I wanted to be involved with something where you tell a story — even though it’s a short story.

Alexander Skarsgård

He stars in the ad campaign alongside Lara Stone, who has previously worked with Calvin Klein. The dramatically shot, blue-lit campaign shows Skarsgård in the throes of romancing a mysterious woman. It looks how the scent should make you feel — daring.

Although it’s not explicit, there’s no denying the dark and compelling ad takes some inspiration from the actor’s vampiric persona. He is considered by most True Blood fans to be the hottest vampire in Bon Temps. Notes for the new fragrance include mandarin, cardamom and rum in the head; jasmine, cognac and pepper feature in the heart; while the dry down offers musk and cedar.
