–Havas Events NA creative solution was to weave a narrative story around the product’s packaging.

–Referencing the “1 Million” fragrance’s shape of a gold bar and “Lady Million’s” gold diamond form, we personified the fragrances, casting faux celebrities as brand ambassadors in an orchestrated stunt with retailers Macy’s and Sephora.

–As paparazzi frantically popped flashes, a curious buzz spontaneously formed around the faux celebrities.


–Havas Events NA went above and beyond for the launch of the “Million” fragrance line.

–The successful buzz created around the dramatic red carpet entrance resulted in 169,025 tweets, more than 6,629,787 media impressions, blog posts and re-posts by key influencers.
