Despite ongoing concerns about the University of Notre Dame's attention to its Catholic identity, the University knows how to make a buck. Notre Dame fans will soon be able to purchase official Notre Dame perfume and cologne, reports the South Bend Tribune.
Michael Low, Notre Dame's director of licensing, tells the paper that the University is working with The Cloudbreak Group and Steiner Collectibles to create and sell fragrances including ND Gold Eau De Toilette for men and Lady Irish Eau De Parfum. The price? An expected $62 per 3.4-ounce bottle.
Low also tells the Tribune:
"The University of Notre Dame's practice is to license fewer companies than most other universities, and we encourage our licensing partners to develop innovative products of high quality that are not commonly available in the marketplace," he explained in an e-mail.
"While Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum have not been previously licensed, the university has previously licensed other lotions and sanitizers," he said. "This is the first opportunity the university has had to work with a company whose sole focus is the development and distribution of uniquely scented products."
