George Clooney's plans to release his own scent have vaporized after cosmetic company bosses refused to commit to a multi-million dollar deal, according to U.S. reports. The Hollywood hunk met with perfume experts at Coty Inc. about creating his own male fragrance line. According to New York Post gossip column Page Six, the star's negotiators wanted to sign a contract to release several scents over a number of years - and demanded at least $30 million for the deal.
However, bosses decided they couldn't commit to the huge pay cheque and the talks ground to a halt. A source tells the publication, "George seemed to be not that keen, unless the deal really made it worth his while. But Coty pulled out, saying this figure made the deal impossible."
Bosses at Coty Inc. have struck perfume deals with a number of A-list stars, including Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Adams and Jennifer Lopez.
