Kate Moss’s perfume launch rumoured to be in Marrakesh

Rumour has it that Kate Moss will launch her new fragrance in Marrakesh, but the people at Coty (the company who signed Kate up to produce the fragrance with her) are worried that the images of Kate with her boyfriend Pete Doherty at the launch will harm the model’s image.

A source told the Daily Star: “Pete is great for Kate’s rock ‘n’ roll image and a brilliant icon – but he doesn’t look like he smells very nice. It is widely known that he made a right mess of his Hackney home by smearing the walls with blood and excrement.

“When you sell a fragrance you are selling a lifestyle. Every girl wants to be Kate Moss – but nobody wants to smell like Pete’s ruined flat. Perfume bosses hope Kate will come out to Morocco alone and that they can win her over by paying for her to holiday anywhere with Pete – afterwards.”

Hmmm… well I wouldn’t want to buy a perfume if it’s image was tainted by thoughts of Pete wreaking his home with blood and excrement.

That would have just smelt lovely disgusting.
