The Smell Of Success: Mariano Rivera Featured On Limited Edition Yankees Cologne
Yankees P Mariano Rivera has not thrown a pitch off an MLB mound in more than six months, but the league’s all-time saves leader’s name and number are being used to market a new limited edition version of the Yankees Cologne that Cloudbreak Group has been marketing under license from MLB since the beginning of the '12 season. The Rivera limited edition bottle includes a rendition of his signature on the front of the cobalt blue bottle and Rivera’s name and No. 42 on the back. It is priced at $85 for a 6.8 ounce bottle, compared to $62 for a 3.4-ounce bottle without the Rivera adornment. The Rivera fragrance is available at Macy’s, Lord & Taylor and NYYankeesFragrance.com (Terry Lefton, THE DAILY).
