WONDER what keeps Giannis Antetokounmpo smelling fresh after a sweat-soaked battle on the court?
Apart from a deserved shower, the 23-year-old NBA superstar sprays his signature line of Str8 fragrance all over his body, a perfume that's now available in the country.
Str8, a fragrance and toiletries brand under the Sarantis Group of Europe, has made Antetokounmpo its global ambassador, believing the company shares the same values as the Milwaukee Bucks superstar.
With the tagline “Go for Great”, Str8 urges young men to aim high and pursue what they want in life – just like Antetokounmpo, who has come a long way from being a 6-foot-11 wunderkind from Greece – a “Greek Freak” – into a legitimate NBA MVP candidate since last season.
“Always remember to have a straight attitude, reach for your dreams…with no hesitations. Let your inner fire burn and be great,” Antetokounmpo said in a video message that aired during the launch of his signature line on Tuesday at The Peninsula Manila in Makati.
Str8 has partnered with Iface Inc., a beauty and wellness industry distributor, in bringing the fragrance line in the Philippines, becoming the first market in the world to launch the new collection under Antetokounmpo.
Str8 will be exclusively available at Watsons Retail chain at The SM Stores.
