AXE Gold Temptation Launch

Axe Gold 051414a

Axe Gold Pass: Gold Men have emerged everywhere.

It’s been a few weeks since AXE, the number one male fragrance brand in the world, made both men and women decide on which man they want to be or which man they want – the sweet and romantic chocolate man, or sophisticated and charming Gold Man?

A survey conducted by the AXE global team had mixed results. While 78% of women prefer to go public with a Chocolate man on social media, around the same number would rather end up marrying the Gold man. The debate raged on, from which Filipino celebrity best represented a Gold Man (Luis Manzano being the most popular result) to which Marvel superhero best embodied the two personas. Captain America? Definitely a Chocolate man. Ironman? Solid Gold.

These two personas were created to represent the two top temptations of women. Dark Temptation is the embodiment of sweet seduction, with its chocolate notes making it the best-selling variant AXE has ever had since its launch in 2009. And given that Gold Temptation is the newcomer in the Temptation range, made specifically for the sophisticated man, it is only natural that the curiosity and interest of the general public gravitated toward this scent which has notes of spices and golden amber.

Derek spoils himself a little, from time to time

(Manila, Philippines) Imagine Derek pulling you into his grand living room, as soft, romantic music plays in the background. He puts a blindfold on you, and whispers in your ear, “Go ahead, spoil yourself a little.” Wouldn’t you just give in to the sweet temptation?

As someone with passion for a busy and active lifestyle, Derek Ramsay shares that being rough and tough on the playing field gives him the energy, and while at work, he always gives his 100% commitment. So after a day of hard work, he finds time to indulge in the simple things that make him smile.
Derek-on-Dunkin'-Donuts-Valentine's-boxes
“With the erratic and busy schedule that I have – juggling sports, work, and play, I know I deserve to spoil myself once in a while. When you know you work hard, you should merit yourself with a reward. A lot of people I work with know that my favorite indulgence right now is the Dunkin’ Donuts’ premium selection.”
DD Premium Donuts

Derek admits he has a soft spot for sweet treats, most especially donuts. Boston Kreme is still his top favorite, but the new additions are the Blueberry Cheese and Black Forest.

This summer, Dunkin’ Donuts gives you more reasons to spoil yourself with its premium donuts; featuring 18 mouthwatering selections of your top favorite indulgences – from Blueberry Cheese, Supreme Rocky Road, Black Forest, Oatmeal, Raisin and Cranberry, Kreme Berry Caramel, and Quezo Duo, to name a few.

Similar to how you have come to love Dunkin’ Donuts’ classic favorites, the premium line is a sumptuous treat, rich, and loaded with choice ingredients that bring out the delicious flavor in the mouthwatering toppings that complement its signature donuts.

Enjoy Dunkin’ Donuts Premium up to the last bite. So go ahead, spoil yourself a little. After all, you can never say no to Dunkin’ Donuts because there’s only Dunkin’ for me.
