I saw an article yesterday (more like a slideshow) of celebrities who have come out with their own perfumes. Other than simply to make money, I've never understood why these people think their fragrances are so great. Some are downright awful. The only celebrity fragrances I like are by Priscilla Presley. I don't think they're manufactured anymore, but she had four of them -- Moments, Indian Summer, Roses & More, and Experiences. I loved all of them, though the only one I have now is Experiences. In her case, her name sold the product for me because of her relation to Elvis. However, had they smelled gross, I wouldn't have gotten them. Other than those, I usually don't buy perfumes from celebrities.
I was really surprised to see just how many there were though! Check out this list to see some of them. I expected to see the usual -- actresses, singers, socialites, and a few sports figures. However, I was kind of surprised to see some others. Did you know the author Danielle Steel has her own fragrance? How about Miss Piggy? Barbie? Kiss? Yep, they do. Even the the characters from Desperate Housewives have their own perfume, as do Dora the Explorer and Austin Powers. I suppose if you have a big enough name and someone willing to invest in you, anyone can have their own fragrance line. Strawberry Shortcake has hers -- so does Carlos Santana! So, here are a few questions for you ...
- Which celebrity fragrances do you like?
- Which celebrity fragrances do you not like?
- If you were a celebrity, what would you name your fragrance?
