Iron Man 2 Movie Tie-Ins & Merchandising From Fragrance To Cars To Cookies.
above: Diesel's limited edition Iron Man fragrance
With Iron Man 2 opening May 7th, the glut of marketing tie-ins and giveaways (purported to cost 100$ including media buys) has already begun to hit the market. In addition to the expected special edition video games, comic books, and action figures, there are fragrances, cookies, motor oil, a special edition Audi r8 and even a limited edition 18ct gold LG mobile phone. Not to mention the numerous microsites created by the retailers. And I've got a look at those and more for you.
Diesel's Limited edition Only The Brave Iron Man fragrance.
Now's your chance to smell like Tony Starck.
Coinciding with the May release of Iron Man 2, Diesel has created a special limited edition of their Only The Brave Cologne, clad in the colors of character Tony Starcks' suit.
The fragrance is touted as a fusion of plant and animal kingdoms. It blends leather, styrax and labdanum. Lemon and violet express urban modernity, underscored by the strength and singularity of cedar and amber. This limited edition comes in a single 75ml format. A vigorous tribute to IRONMAN’s visual universe. See more at Diesel's Fragrance factory
