Celebrities are showing they are multi-talented by branching out into new ventures. Musicians are acting, actors are singing, and reality stars are creating clothing lines. However, the hot trend of the year is celebrity fragrances. Scents tickle our emotions and can evoke memories years later. Celebrity fragrances embrace their personalities, their desires, and their brands and certainly make perfect gifts. Gift the diva in your life with a new perfume that shows her she is the VIP in your life with one of these new scents:
Taylor Swift – Wonderstruck
The country start is known for being hands on in all her endeavors. She’s also known to be super sweet to her fans, and has dedicated this scent to all people in love. The name of the perfume comes from a lyric in the song “Enchanted” on her current album Speak Now. Swift handpicked the whimsical charms on the bottle, which include a Moravian star, dove, and birdcage, to illustrate her unique style. The fragrance includes notes of Freesia, Green Tea, Apple Blossom, Raspberry, Dewberry and can be found at www.sephora.com for $18 to $65.
Katy Perry – Purr
Having previously appeared on stage dressed as Catwoman, it’s no surprise that Perry chose to model her bottle after all things feline. The adorable design mirrors Perry’s playful personality with jeweled eyes, gleaming metal accents, and a vivid violet color. This bottle is no doubt unique and would make a perfect gift for an extravagant, elegant, cat-loving woman. Like Perry, the fragrance is lively, but chic with notes of jasmine blossom, Bulgarian rose and vanilla orchid accented by creamy sandalwood and musk. Available for $45-$65 at www.nordstrom.com.
Jennifer Aniston – Jennifer Aniston
California girl Aniston used her childhood memories to develop her new fragrance. Evoking sunny days at the beach, this clean scent is light enough to wear daily. With notes of Citrus Grove Accord, Rose Water, Jasmine, Violet, Amazon Lily, Musk, Amber, and Sandalwood, gift your loved one with this classic floral scent. The bottle is inspired by Aniston’s love of architecture and references the flow of a Frank Gehry building and the gracefulness of a cresting wave. It no doubt reflects the actress’ sweetness, elegance and simplicity and is ideal for women of all ages. Available for $55-$70 at www.macys.com.
Kim Kardashian – Gold
The headlines are all about the Kardashian family this year. While her love life may be in disarray, Kim Kardashian’s fragrance lines are booming. Her new scent, Gold, promises to “Transcend Ordinary.” Her sexy, opulent style is reflected in dazzling gold packaging contrasted with rich black designs. It may not be as simple and classy and Jennifer Aniston’s choice, but it certainly comes in an eye-catchy bottle that vaguely recalls Magie Noire by Lancome, a fragrance that is nearly impossible to find nowadays. The scent embodies Kardashian’s bigger than life personality with notes of bergamot, grapefruit, pink pepper, jasmine, tender rose, dewy violet, patchouli, sandalwood, amber and creamy benzoin, wrapped together with a hint of musk.
