Rafael Nadal to be the image of Puig's new perfume

Efe|MADRID

Rafael Nadal's prominence extends beyond the purely sporting field and his image is courted by the most prestigious companies to promote their products. The latest one to put their stakes on the reigning French Open champion and world number two is the prestigious perfume and cosmetics company Antonio Puig, with whom the player from Manacor has signed an agreement that will make him the face and symbol of a new fragrance in total sympathy with the person in question that will be on the market at the beginning of 2006. Nadal is following in the footsteps of Carlos Moya who some years ago also had his own fragrance.

Carlos is Rafa's hero, role model and mentor. I don't think any youngster would wish or hope for a better one than him. Buena suerte Rafa with your new venture.

The last idea that comes to mind when looking at the match photos of Nadal is that I would want to smell him. If he has to rep a cologne line perhaps he could have picked something with a name like Paco Rabanne or Dior or anything that doesn't read and/or sound like pig. Who is marketing this kid anyhow? To be honset I haven't seen that many pictures of him offcourt and the ones I have make him look like a member of Menudo. Maybe he's trying to find a transition from bubble-gum swashbuckler to ?

" Puig " is a catalan word/surname that means = " hill ".

I don't know how this perfume is pronounced abroad but the correct pronunciation is approximately the same than the english word " pooch " , although the " u " sound in Puig is a bit shorter, that is pooch = [püch ], and Puig = [puch]

actually the context is perfect. picture this. Puig Boy playing the match of his life, sweating like a pig. no wait, pigs don't perspire. sweating like a [insert appropriate animal here]. afterwards, he hoists the trophy aloft and declares to the camera, "thanks to Puig, my sweat don't stank". in Spanish of course. :p

Unless English speaking folks are taught otherwise, the automatic pronunciation would go something like this:

PWEEG. Or PWIG. Fairly close to PIG. There's nothing in the spelling that would suggest pooch (an English word for a dog). Perhaps "PUIG" isn't interested in capturing the English speaking market. I would imagine not given their name selection.

Thanks for the information. In English the pronunciation is close to "Pig" hence all the references to what some people on this board call Rafa.

I was actually thinking Pig Boy playing the match of his life, sweating all the Puig that he applied out of him. And then during the trophy presentation the tournament director standing next to him thanking him saying "thanks to Pig the Puig now stinks" :tape:

Okay, I admit it: as dumb as I find the "pig" bit (which has nothing to do with my liking Nadal... "weasel" for Coria is perfectly amusing), I did giggle just a bit at the title of the thread.

It's odd that Nadal's new cologne would be named after the designer Antonio Puig instead of after Nadal himself. I think more fans would like the cologne to be called "Rafa". What's the point of using Nadal as the spokesman if the cologne is not named after him? Federer and Sharapova each have their own cologne that carries their names. The name Puig would be pronounced "Poo" - "IG" if it's in Spanish.

Antonio Puig is a well known perfumerie in Spain, so, it's natural that it would release a fragrance for Rafa, as he is the hottest icon in Spain at the moment. If I remember the company is from Barcelona,and obviously Catalan, and is pronounced "pooch"( like "butch"). I will reall love to try it out. Rafa buena suerte with your new venture.
