Emporio Armani taps James Jagger and Matilda Lutz - a pair of stars with fashion in their DNA - as the faces of a new his-and-hers scent duo.
"It's easy to be excited in love when it's new and you're infatuated, right?" says actor James Jagger, with a sly smile. "But it's more challenging to keep it romantic as you develop and grow."
Jagger, who stars alongside buzzy Italian ingenue Matilda Lutz in a short film for Emporio Armani's new fragrance duet - "Because It's You" for women and "Stronger With You" for men - is talking about the story line of the campaign, which finds the two dancing on the roof of an idling New York City taxi and making out atop a vertigo-inducing, swaying construction beam. The big idea is that they're not portraying a fling, or the first heady flush of love, but rather a couple - well, the romance-novel version of a couple - reimagining their version of a wild first date. Hey, sometimes you have to shake things up.
... the brand's biggest image-building initiative by far is the scent duo. "Fragrance is the natural complement of a designer's vision," Mr. Armani says (though the maestro himself says he rarely wears the stuff). The new women's eau is laced with black cherry and Guatamalan patchouli; the men's with cedar, chestnut, and pink pepper. They're conceived to be worn in tandem on a couple, maybe even to share a vanity shelf.
... London-raised Jagger - yes, that Jagger; his mom is Jerry Hall - broke out in his role as a bad-boy British rocker on the short-lived HBO series Vinyl (next up, playing a tech titan who's due for a topple in the indie 7X7). Like Lutz, he now calls L.A. home: "You make a lot of plans and drive around here. It's not like London, where you can go from having a pint at the local and end up at a dance club at 4 A.M." The actor showed up on set wearing all black, plus blinding cerulean socks, something of a signature hue, evidently - last year he married his longtime girlfriend, artist Anoushka Sharma, in a teal corduroy suit.

Status Update - MATILDA LUTZ & JAMES JAGGER
The stars of Armani's latest fragrance campaign share their thoughts on the new scents - and other aromas.
On Armani Because It's You, for her:
LUTZ - "The combination of vanilla, rose, and musk is so appealing."
JAGGER - "It has a subtle hint of raspberry that's sophisticated without being too sweet."
On Armani Strong With You, for him:
LUTZ - "I usually wear men's fragrance, so it wasn't unusual for me to love this; the spices in it are memorable."
JAGGER - "It has a fresh woody and spicy note that I find very elegant."
LUTZ - "I have Diptyque candles everywhere; the Figuier and Baies are my favorites."
JAGGER - "I like to burn Japanese incense."
LUTZ - "I just returned from Morocco, and they use rose oil in almost everything; it's the sexiest scent."
JAGGER - "Petrol - no joke. I'm a huge motorbike, motor-sports, and car junkie."
