Justin Bieber’s Girl Selena Gomez Debuts Her First Fragrance
You can’t land a guy like Justin Bieber without sending out some serious pheromones. And, Selena Gomez is hoping her savvy sense of smell will bode her well as she prepares to launch her first perfume.
Just like Biebs (Someday launched in Summer 2011), the 19-year-old pop star is the latest in a long line of celebrities (Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Elizabeth Taylor, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, etc.) to add a fragrance to her budding empire.
But, oddly, Justin isn’t the one who inspired the tween queen to create her own scent. “I’ve always wanted [to create my own perfume] since Mary Kate and Ashley [Olsen] had their little body sprays,” says the diva, who asked her fans to vote on the ingredients of her new fragrance recently on a special website. “They’re the ones wearing it, so I trust them—their opinions and everything that they’ve done for me.”
Described on Twitter as encompassing “top notes of orange, pineapple, peach, and raspberry; a heart of purple freesia, Cosmone musk, and dewberry, and a dry down of amber, vanilla, chocolate, and coconut,” Selena decided not to get too deep when naming her fragrance and settled on naming it after herself. “It’s called my name because I didn’t want to get all philosophical with my first one,” says the actress, who is currently filming Spring Breakers with Vanessa Hudgens. “I wanted it to be representing me, so it’s really fun, very sophisticated, and also fruity. The only way I can describe it is yummy!”
