The “post” Michael Jackson era has begun and now the Jackson Estate or at least Joe Jackson can add a fragrance collection to their rapidly growing list of Posthumous products with the king of pops name attached to them.
Joe Jackson, father of Michael Jackson has teamed up with a french perfume company to release a Jackson scent line.
Jackson signed the deal with Julian Rouas Paris Company to create the collection which will debut in just a few short months.
Rousas Paris Chief Executive Frank Rouas told PopCrunch:
“With Joe Jackson, we are 50-50 partners in world sales, television rights and advertising receipts. We did it very, very quickly. Usually it takes a year.”
According to Rouas he met with the Jackson family at a Las Vegas trade fair where they sampled his Versailles cologne and agreed to meet with him in their private salon. After agreeing to form a partnership the Jackson estate then helped choose the scents that would become part of Jackson’s fragrance line.
The line is inspired by plants found around Neverland Ranch.
While the partnership is 50/50, part of the proceeds will go to support some of Jackson’s favorite charities.
What do you think, would you be willing to wear a posthumous Jackson scent?
