I kind of agree. The constant dipping their feet into other avenues of fame is annoying. I actually have not smelled any celebrity fragrance that I like. I’ve yet to smell Taylor Swift’s new scent though. And I really like her so who knows. :)posted over 2 years ago
I feel the same way. It seems like the only way celebrities can stand out in a world where gossip is so big and changes so fast is to either be crazy or to attempt something different from what they usually do and suck/rock at it. Having a fragrance just kind of adds to their resume. Really, it’s like a bastardized version of the renaissance man.posted over 2 years ago
The only fragance that I love is the 360 by Perry Ellis..I don’t use anything else, except for a splash once in a while..But noo celebrities fragance for me.posted over 2 years ago
I agree that there has been an overload of celebrity fragrances as of late. it’s like everyone wants their own perfume and/or their own fashion line. BUT, I have to admit that the one fragrance that is an exception for me is Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker. it’s kind of been a go-to ever since I could remember.posted over 2 years ago
I wouldn’t call it lazy so much as a marketing strategy. They get money, the product is sold better than it would sans name, and both gain more recognition—win/win. Their involvement is likely limited to some paperwork and a few photoshoots with the perfume, so I don’t think it deters much from what makes them famous to begin with.
As great as some artists may truly be, most fame is more a result of contracts than anything else—you need to fight to stay relevant, and having your “own” perfume or clothing line solidifies that your name isn’t outdated.
I have a few random celebrity perfume samples, and none of them impress me—I received a sample of the Jennifer Aniston a day ago w/my Sephora purchase, and it smells like a**. I equate celebrity perfumes with drugstore brands—not saying that cheaper products can’t be better, but you know.posted over 2 years ago
I think they are just trying to make money in yet another way. I have been lusting after the pink Britney Spears one though….posted over 2 years ago
Hey, if they can make a whole lot of money out of a fragrance, why not? I mean, for them it’s a clean deal.. :D Wouldn’t you do it if you had the chance?posted over 2 years ago
It’s under their contract, one way of making money so why not for them right? It benefits them, and it benefits the buyer in a way that it adds “value” to the product because it’s named under her favorite celeb. Lolposted over 2 years ago
I can’t say that I’m too fond of any out there. I was gifted one of Jessica Simpson’s but I found the scent didn’t last as long and was really really faint…but when I did catch a whiff it was nice. I guess if I wanted to make a few extra million dollars a year I’d churn out some scents too..lolposted over 2 years ago
I like Beyonce heat and SJP, among others. But i know what you mean, it is Kind of annoying how they try to leave a mark everywhere. Having said that, my sister worked in Fragrance. She came home with every scent known to man, so there are some fragrances that rubbed off on me.posted over 2 years ago
it’s annoying if the perfume doesn’t even smell good but i have to say kate moss’s perfume is beautifulposted over 2 years ago
i dont use any celebrity fragrances. But I have to say I have shoes, purse of some celebrity mark.
They only give their name, but when the product is good and has quality, I dont see any problem to buy it.
Some smell good, but most don’t. Dk know if many would consider Kim k and Paris Hilton “celebrities” but, I love most of Paris’ perfumes, but hate Kim’s. Beyondes smell good and so do some of the Britney ones.posted over 2 years ago
