Fan's of the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman will now be able to get their hands on the until-now-fictional fragrance Sex Panther. The fragrance which features in the movie (alongside colognes such as London Gentleman and Blackbeard's Delight) is now available to buy in real life as a result of a collaboration between Paramount Pictures, Romane Fragrances and Omni Consumer Products.
Unlike in the film, this version does not contain real bits of panther. More information about the fragrance is found in the press release:
Officially licensed from the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, Sex Panther Cologne is a uniquely-formulated men's fragrance, designed to be as instantly recognizable and upscale as the infamous name would suggest. The bottle is a refined silica glass, with triple black velvet-matte ceramique spray, and the cologne itself is a formidable scent, with crisp overtones of sandalwood, pine, vetiver, and a clean base of dry, rich mahogany."Sex Panther Cologne is the exact embodiment of what a real cologne should be," said Omni Consumer Products founder, Pete Hottelet. "The fragrance is clean, fresh, and extremely manly. Manly like eating a bowl of cereal doused in motor oil, consisting mainly of shavings from the Apollo moon lander and Richard Petty's championship 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Manly like walking into a bar and ordering a screwdriver -- made out of actual screwdrivers. It's designed from the ground up to make you popular with the ladies; human ladies, to be exact. So I hope that's what you're into."
It appears that this fragrance was launched last year. It is unclear whether this is the same juice or something different.
