Natalie Glebova, who won the Miss Universe beauty pageant in Bangkok in 2005, made Pattaya the latest stop on the launch tour for her Beauty Icon perfume.
Created by Bel Perfumes, a French-owned, Thailand-based company, the fragrance was launched in Bangkok May 3 and shown off to Pattaya shoppers at Royal Garden Plaza May 12.
Miss Universe 2005 Natalie Glebova receives a bouquet of flowers from Somporn Naksuetrong, general manager of Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum Pattaya.
Canada-native Glebova has a long affinity with Thailand, not only winning the beauty crown here, but becoming a brand ambassador for Singha beer and Better Vision eyewear. She’s also a spokesperson for the Soi Cats and Dogs animal rescue organization.
Glebova said she was approached more than a year ago by Bel about them creating a perfume line for her. The company previously signed three other Thai starlets, including Aum Patcharapha Chaichuay and Chompoo A. Hargate, to similar fragrance deals.
The beauty queen said she worked with French perfumer V. Mane Fils to select the oils to be used and had input into the bottle design.
“I am delighted to have an opportunity to work with perfume professionals in developing this new scent inspired by me,” Glebova said. “The design of the bottle and color is inspired by my Thai name ‘Fah’ and the cork of the perfume is designed like the crown that I was awarded in 2005.”
The cologne is on sale at MiST 1000 Parfums at Royal Garden Plaza and online at Natalie-Glebova-Perfumes.com.
