Now, men have one more way to channel their inner Maxim man: the publication, which is one of the largest men’s lifestyle magazine brands worldwide, has just announced that it’s releasing a luxury fragrance for men this upcoming fall.
In collaboration with fragrance marketer and distributor Omni Scents, Maxim aims to expand its reputation as a “lifestyle brand”— not just a men’s magazine— by introducing the Maxim Fragrance Collection. As the first men's magazine to develop its own scent, Maxim aims to develop a fragrance that is in line with the brand’s focus of excitement, fun and suggestiveness. “Entering the grooming category is for the Maxim brand a natural progression of [its] global growth strategy,” said Jack Kliger, executive chairman of Alpha Media Group, which publishes Maxim. The cologne will be distributed globally in department stores and fine fragrance retailers in the fall of 2013.
