LONDON – Soccer star David Beckham and his pop-star wife Victoria are set to get intimate with the unveiling of a new fragrance for men and women next month. Dubbed "intimately Beckham for Him" and "for Her," the fragrances will be sold starting next month across Britain.
The couple, who married in 1999, have spent almost a decade in the perpetual glare of celebrity photographers' flashbulbs, but their appeal is waning.
Beckham, the world's most recognized soccer player, quit as England soccer captain after the team's lackluster performance in the summer's World Cup tournament. He has since been ditched from the England squad, signaling the winding down of his playing career.
Victoria, once a singer with the multimillion-selling Spice Girls, made a poorly received solo album in 2001, but recently switched her attention to developing a line of designer jeans.
Both versions of the fragrance are set to go on sale in Britain starting Sept. 1. There was no immediate word on whether the fragrance would be marketed elsewhere.
