REYKJAVIK, ICELAND--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2015) - It was reported recently that the Icelandic fashion label, Gydja Collection, has announced that the new face of its fragrance Vatnajokull is Game of Thrones' "The Mountain," played by Hafthor Julius Bjornsson.
According to IceNews, Gydja Collection's CEO and Head Designer Sigrun Lilja Gudjonsdottir stated that the label was ecstatic to have Hafthor on board as the new figure of Vatnajokull, as he embodies the key principles of the fragrance: Strength, Power and Masculinity.
Sigrun Lilja continued to explain that the concept behind Vatnajokull was to unleash the inner-fire of the wearer -- to represent prowess and courage.
