My LIVE Chat with Anna Nicole Smith

OnlineHost : Your host for tonight is CSEmcee2 (Bill)

OnlineHost : Peter C. Klamka, the 26-year old founder and
: President of Wilshire Fragrance Inc., announced
: the debut of LIVE, a shared fragrance featuring
: Anna Nicole Smith. LIVE will be available
: exclusively at Camelot Music stores beginning
: October 1, 1995.

OnlineHost : Camelot Music is a 400 store retailer of compact
: disks, cassettes and video tapes. LIVE marks the
: first time that a major brand has been launched
: exclusively in a music and video retailer.

OnlineHost : Anna Nicole Smith, the former Playboy Playmate of
: the Year and former Guess? jeans model, will be
: featured in the point-of-purchase and print-
: campaign for LIVE. There will also be a "Get LIVE
: with Anna" promotion that will coincide with
: personal appearances by Anna at Camelot stores.

OnlineHost : The scent is a contemporary mix of mandarin,
: lavender, lemon and spearmint enhanced with mid
: qualities of jasmin, nutmeg, apple and black
: pepper.

OnlineHost : The packaging is among the most distinctive in
: fragrance. The custom frosted bottle employs
: either a red or cyan LIVE trademark. In addition
: to the LIVE mark, the black packaging also
: features the LIVE theme, "Bold Uncompromising
: Fearless."

OnlineHost : There are two sizes -- a 1.7 ounce and a 3.4
: ounce. The retail prices begin at $12.00. LIVE is
: available only in spray format.
: "Anna Nicole Smith personifies the LIVE spirit
: all-American beauty with unmistakable sex appeal
: and a hint of mischief. Anyone, male or female,
: can relate to her," says Klamka.

OnlineHost : "There is no other fragrance like LIVE. It seems
: to me that the best things in fashion, music and
: movies always begin outside the traditional
: channels of distribution. Limiting distribution
: to a music retailer allowed me to do things that
: would not seem possible in a department store
: environment," added Klamka.

OnlineHost : In addition to traditional forms of advertising,
: LIVE will also have its own web site on the
: Internet.
: Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Wilshire Fragrance
: was formed to market the Campus Collection, a line
: of collegiate-licensed men's colognes. Wilshire
: also markets a NASCAR line of fragrance. Please
: welcome Anna Nicole to America Online!
