He first became the face of the men’s scent in 2015 and now, Johnny Depp, 59, has reportedly signed back with Dior to continue being the face of their Sauvage cologne in a multi-year deal worth millions.
According to a report, he signed on the dotted line for a seven-figure sum and already has new promotional photos ready for a new campaign, while his legal woes with ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, continue.

According to TMZ, Johnny inked the new deal to continue fronting the fragrance after fashion photographer Greg Williams attended one of Johnny and Jeff Beck’s gigs in Paris.
The publication claims that before and after the concert, Johnny did a photo shoot with Greg, with the resulting artwork set to be be used in a new Dior advertising campaign.
Dior stood by Johnny throughout his recent trial, and sales of the cologne he advertises, Sauvage, rose at retailers, the Wall Street Journal reported in early June.
The publication stated that the cosmetics retailer and its competitor Ulta have both seen increasing sales for Depp’s cologne, making it among their top-selling fragrances online.
Meanwhile, Johnny is still entangled in legal battles with his Amber Heard – as the actress fights to overturn a court’s June settlement against her.
He was awarded $10.35 million for damages after a defamation suit against his ex-wife.
But The Aquaman actress has appealed for the award to be overturned, two months after she was ordered to pay.
Amber was denied a request for a mistrial a week before, arguing that one of the jurors on the case shouldn’t have been eligible to serve because his summons was intended for his father, who had the same name and lived at the same address.
