    Smells Like Profit: Disney Eyes Pre-Teen Fragrance Market


    "Pirates of the Caribbean" cologne is just
    one offering that's aimed at younger boys.

    NEW YORK -- Forget the smell of sweat, grass and dirt. Disney Consumer Products wants young boys smelling their best.

    Disney is rolling out Pirates of the Caribbean- and Buzz LightyearCars fragrance line in 2006. Mooney said the results were positive, noting that both Disney and Air Vale were surprised at how strong the acceptance has been and how fast retailers have taken the products.

    Much of the merchandise will not have placement on store shelves; instead it will be featured in displays.

    Disney has no plans for a widespread advertising campaign. Instead, POP and co-op ads are available for chains.

    "If the products are positioned correctly in stores with high percentages of Hispanic consumers, they should do well," said David Perez, CEO of consultancy Latin Force, New York. "But Spanish-language signage would be helpful in the marketing."

    While fragrance as part of a daily regimen for younger males is new, it is a growing trend even among older consumers in mainstream markets, said John Bauersfeld, vp-sales for fragrances at Camrose Trading, Miami, the U.S. distributor for the new products. "Look at the success of Axe [body spray]. It targets [males] 18-24 years, but ages 12-and-up are buying it like it's going out of style. The age of [male] fragrance wearers is moving down."

    Despite this shift, Axe has no plans to target younger males, said Sam Chadha, director of antiperspirant/deodorant at Unilever Home and Personal Care, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. "While we realize some younger guys might use our products, and we're flattered by that, we've had great success focusing on the college-aged guy, and they will continue to be our focus."

      And come try our PotC cologne! Our different smells are: Rum Hangover, Muddy Pig, and Saltwater Sea sickness. Buy our bonus pack to use all three at the same time for extra stench, I mean freshness!



      Seriously, what are they thinking!

        Do they smell like rum, sweat, and dirt? Because we all know that's what all the boys wear these days.
        Mickey ears - $10
        Starwars lightsaber - $12
        Autograph book - $7
        Getting a picture with every castmember you see - priceless.

          What about the girls?

          Wolfette would love to be wearing a Disney fragrance!
          Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
          it's what they are like in their HEART!

            If it smells anything like the bubble bath... it's strong stuff. :lol:

            and the stars come out,
            I'll look up on her behalf.
            I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                I wonder if it smells like the water from the ride...
