The French fashion house released a swarthy portrait of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor — and Amber Heard’s hubby — along with news that he’ll represent a new men’s fragrance composed by its legendary perfumer Francois Demachy.

The scent is set to be released Sept 1, around the time his next film, Black Mass, is released —  but perhaps even more exciting is the forthcoming worldwide campaign starring the dreamy actor.
