Coldplay fool fans with fragrance launch banter

Thursday April 1, 2010

It seems everyone is taking part in a little April Fools action today.

British rock band Coldplay played a cheeky trick on their fans this week, when they announced they would be launching an "exclusive new fragrance" called Angst.

The band said they would be supplying Brian Eno-designed bottles and Fairtrade ingredients such as "sangre, sudor and lagrimas" - Spanish for "blood, sweat and tears".

"This is something we've wanted to do for a long time - people like to smell nice and we thought we could help them out," said frontman Chris Martin (pictured).

The band's website provided a link to the online shop to buy a bottle of the scent, priced at £42 - only for it to say it had sold out.
