What is it about sweaty tennis stars that screams 'Fragrance!?' Perhaps it's that sweet smell of success. It seems yet another tennis pro has been tapped as the face for a cologne. Rafael Nadal has been chosen by Lanvin fragrances, a licensee of Inter Parfums SA. The 22-year-old will star in the campaign for Lanvin L’Homme Sport coming in summer 2009.

Nadal joins a team of other tennis pros. Estee Lauder Cosmetics, Inc. bid on Andre Agassi as the man to represent Arami's scent called Life. Not long after, in 2004, Maria Sharapova was presented with the opportunity to create her own scent with Parlux Fragrances Inc. Next to take a swing at a cologne was Andy Roddick.


And let's not forget the dynamic duo - the Williams sisters. Venus and Serena signed with Avon in 2000, appearing in print ads and television spots for the company.
