The Astbury Fragrance Co. has made available a number of special edition versions of both Metal for Men and Metal pour Femme which are personally signed by K.K.
Launching his products on Planet Rock Radio, here’s the quote from the website.
“A message from K.K. Downing:
Dear rock and metal fans,
It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of my new fine fragrances, Metal for Men and Metal pour Femme.
For quite some time I have thought of creating fine fragrance products specifically for everyone that is endeared to rock and metal music. My new fragrances are created with the association of a world leading perfume house which has provided great products for some of the world’s most successful brands.
I truly hope that one of these fragrances will make the ideal gift for the rock girl, or rock guy in your life.
I also hope that Rock fans throughout the world will enjoy my fragrances, and it is a privilege for me to be able to bring these exciting new products to you through the UK’s premier rock radio station, Planet Rock.
With my very best wishes,
The Grammy award winning guitarist also spoke to Planet Rock’s Paul Anthony about his fragrances and how they come about. Paul caught up with KK at the Rockstock festival last year.
Here’s what KK had to say….
Mr Downing’s Products have been well received on the Amazon customer reviews from both men & women alike and have made points about it being a great collectors item.
One enthuses-Awesome gift for every Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Woman!!!
It’s not the first time fragrances & perfumed products have entered the metal realm, as Detriot City Rockers Kiss have already pipped KK to the post.
Kiss do everything, in fact they even do condoms! So it’s no surprise they have their own cologne, including deodorants.
While his fragrances are on offer to the willing consumer, the legendary axe-slinger has also set his sights on another business venture to keep him occupied. A keen Golfer, KK has bought and invested in Astbury Hall estate which includes a 63-room hotel, indoor swimming pool, spa and a top class restaurant.
KK quit the metal band after 40 years and spent most of his personal fortune on Astbury Hall after selling over 40 million records with Priest.
With grand plans to attract some of the world’s best golfers and competitions to his site, he is making a championship course of true quality with beautifully manicured playing surfaces and built to USGA specifications.
Meantime, his ex-bandmates are currently wrapping up their Redeemer of Souls U.K Tour at the time of this post. But as hinted in the video above, we’d all love to see KK rejoin Priest for the foreseeable future, wouldn’t we?
So Rockers, the question is… would you wear Metal for Men or Kiss Cologne? Would you buy it for the missus? or would you, yourself mind this as a gift?
Could you imagine a pink-shirted Kerry King or a clean cut Zakk Wylde ever patting their chops with this stuff? I’d love to hear what you think.
Just for those who like to ‘try before you buy’, you can get a sample of both Metal For Men & Metal Pour Femme along with a signed Guitar Pick by K.K. Just simply head over to the Metal for Men Website and for £3.00 you can have this posted to your door. I pulled my envelope out of the letter box just this very morning and was happy to get the sample and signed guitar plectrum from the legendary axeman. It comes on a peel away tester card that’s advertising for Valentines Day.
