CELEBRITY FRAGRANCES

TUESDAY #1

JENNIFER LOPEZ
When I started putting this together, I had no idea how large it would become! So which one is your favorite? What do you think of this trend?

GLOW BY JLO: I started with her, because she was one of the first mainstream celebs to have her own perfume and probably has the largest collection.

This is one of my favorite perfume advertisements, it's risky but she manages to still look angelic. I remember when the perfume was launched, people were going crazy trying to get their hands on it.

GLOW AFTER DARK. Two girls pretend to be into each other while the guy looks on. Typical;)

“The original Glow is angelic and personal but, by contrast, Glow After Dark is mischievous, charismatic and sexy.”

MIAMI GLOW.

LOVE AT FIRST GLOW. Cute idea, I like the name too.

LIVE.

LIVE LUXE.

DESEO. It means "To Desire" in Spanish.


DESEO FOR MEN. Her first men's fragrance.
"top notes of lemon, yuzu, red berries and cedar leaf; a heart of tobacco leaves, guaicwood and orris, and a drydown of sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, amber and vanilla"

JENNIFER LOPEZ STILL.


SARAH JESSICA PARKER
LOVELY. I love the campaign and advertisements for this perfume, they truly are lovely.
THE LOVELY COLLECTION: DAWN, ENDLESS AND TWILIGHT. They are variations on the original Lovely.

COVET. I really love the smell of this, and I would like it for Christmas ;)

COVET PURE BLOOM.

TV COMMERCIAL:




KYLIE MINOGUE
SHOWTIME. The eau de toilette is a fruity-floral and the eau de parfum is a fruity-oriental variation. This is the newest from Kylie, introduced in Feb 2008, after the 'Darling' series.

DARLING. I love this collection from Kylie. The packaging is simple, but it catches your eye at the same time.


SWEET DARLING.

SEXY DARLING.


CHRISTINA AGUILERA
CHRISTINA AGUILERA, CHRISTINA AGUILERA. This is also one of my favorites in terms of packaging. I also think the ad is cool.

INSPIRE. Inspired by Andy Warhol and Tokyo.

TV COMMERCIAL.



KATE MOSS
KATE MOSS.

VELVET HOURS. She must have had far less publicity with this one, I didn't even know about it, till I was doing research. "enigmatic woody floral"


GWEN STEFANI
L.A.M.B.

HARAJUKI LOVERS. I love the idea and concept of it, you can collect each one. So cute!


SEAN JOHN, P-DIDDY,
PUFFY, PUFF DADDY UNFORGIVABLE.

UNFORGIVABLE WOMAN. The Woman's version of a Men's fragrance, super sexy and scandalous.

UNFORGIVABLE WOMAN BLACK & UNFORGIVABLE BLACK.

I AM KING.


HILARY DUFF
WITH LOVE. Made for the younger generation this is a mix of fruity floral with a creamy, buttersccotch-y twist.

WRAPPED WITH LOVE.


JESSICA SIMPSON
FANCY. One of the newest Celebrity fragrances on the market. Unfortunately I think she looks a little manly in that ad.


MARIAH CAREY
M. Air brushing at it's finest! The bottle is very pretty, you know how Mariah feels about butterflies.

M- GOLD DELUXE.


BRITNEY SPEARS
FANTASY.

MIDNIGHT FANTASY. Contains black cherries, plum, orchid and freesia with base notes of musk and amber.

HIDDEN FANTASY. It's suppose to come out in December, the same time as her new album Circus.

BELIEVE. This ad had a lot of controversy when it came out, because it was around the time of the head shaving incident. Her reps claim this was shot then, but I think it's Brit Brit circa 98. It's not like she was in tip top shape at the time of her breakdown. Also the style of the logo "Believe" was stolen from a Charity. Read about it here.

CURIOUS. I belive this was the first one she launched. The TV ads were pretty raunchy from what I remember.


TV COMMERCIAL:

IN CONTROL. A spin on Curious.


MARY-KATE AND
ASHLEY OLSENCOAST TO COAST. Includes Soho Cic (Ashley) and Malibu Style (Mary-Kate). If anyone is a veteran in the celeb perfume game it's them! Though they were targeting a young audience.


LONDON BEAT, TOKYO FUSION (Not pictured)


PARIS HILTON
FAIRY DUST. Her latest fragrance. This ad makes me want to put a finger down my throat and gag. She looks as trashy as she did on The Simple Life. Your suppose to move forward not backward!

CAN CAN. You Can't Can't.

JUST ME. She actually doesn't look as scary as she normally does here.

PARIS HILTON, FOR MEN. Who buys this stuff?


KATIE PRICE
AKA JORDAN
STUNNING. "One spray and you're Stunning!" she promised. Ok...


KELLY BROOK
KELLY BROOK.



CELINE DION

CELINE DION, CELINE DION & CELINE DION MAGIC. I had no idea Celine had so many fragrances! The fragrances have reportedly earned over 500 million dollars, again I must ask...who buys this stuff?

CELINE DION SENSATIONAL. The latest perfume in her franchise. I thought she might be the only Canadian celeb with her own fragrance, but then I remembered Shania Twain has one too. I think my mom bought it at a yard sale a few years ago haha.

ENCHANTING.

PARIS NIGHTS.

SPRING IN PARIS.

BELONG.

NOTES. How much work does it take to make Celine look this good?Hehe


DAVID AND
VICTORIA BECKHAMINTIMATELY BECKHAM. That ad is Ferosh.
"Spicy and citrus notes with a masculine floral heart and a warm base of amber, patchouli, vetiver and tonka bean. The women’s scent meanwhile features top notes of tangerine, bergamot and cinnamon, a white floral heart of lily, tuberose and orange blossom and a base of sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean and myrrh."

INTIMATELY BEKCHAM NIGHT. I don't like this ad at all, David is always looking so secious and Posh looks like she's going to have a big O.

DAVID BECKHAM - INTIMATELY BECKHAM AFTER DARK.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

CELEBRITIES ENDORCING
PERFUMES
BEYONCE FOR EMPORIO ARMANI - DIAMONDS FOR WOMAN. This perfume seems to be targeted at a younger audience. The perfume is also rose based.

TV COMMERCIAL:



JOSH HARTNETT FOR EMPORIO ARMANI - DIAMONDS FOR MEN.

BEYONCE FOR TOMMY HILFIGER - TRUE STAR.

BEYONCE FOR TOMMY HILFIGER - TRUE STAR GOLD.

CHARLIZE THERON FOR J'ADORE DIOR. For a strong and confident woman.

NICOLE KIDMAN FOR CHANEL N5. I have this one at home, it's a must. You know Marylin never went without two drops of her Chanel N5. This is a very strong and bold sent, defintely not one for day to day for me but best reserved for special events.

TV COMMERCIAL: One of the most expensive ever made.


EVA MENDES FOR CALVIN KELIN - SECRET OBSESSION.

ERYKAH BADU FOR TOM FORD - WHITE PATCHOULI . A strong fregrance but not overwhelming.
TOM FORD FOR TOM FORD MEN.

CHLOE SEVIGNY FOR CHLOE. These ads also feature Clemence Poesy and Anja Rubik.
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY FOR COCO MADEMOISELLE. Ah yes, this is the ad where they made her boob bigger.

KATHERINE HEIGL FOR NAUTICA - MY VOYAGE
TOM BRADY FOR STETSON.

every celeb under the sun has a perfume. i am a creature of habit, i just alternate between jo malone and bvlgari.

copperoranges said...

this is one of my favorite posts you've ever done!

1. my personal fragrance collection includes d&g light blue, chanel chance, vera wang princess, and stella by stella mccartney.

i am contemplating asking for Chloe for christmas.

2. my favorite celebrity ads are sarah j parker for lovely and miami glow by jlo.

3. so many girls in my high school class wore curious and paris perfume. GROSS.

enc said...

I don't believe it!

I can't fathom this many celeb fragrances. I only knew about a fraction of them.

Wana said...

veree lengthy post sugar! yah, i absolutely heart unforgivable! my bf got me the 100ml 3ce cos thats all i wore! loved and still love it!

kokostiletto said...

wow! i am shocked at how many performs JLO has!! wow!!!!
i really really like christina aguiler's bottle. I think out of all of them - i love britney's bottles' best... and mariah's. the only one i actually own is the harajuku one!

alis said...

-Some of these have ridiculous names, such as P.Diddy's "IAMKING". Narcissism at tits finest.
-Coco Mademoiselle and Chanel 5. are my favorite ads, though they don't qualify as celebrity scents. I absolutely hate Covet's TV ad.
-My bf got me Britney's midnight fantasy. The box and the bottle are so pretty! Smells good too, but my all-time favorite perfumes are Miss Cherie Dior, Gucci Envy, Lancome Miracle.
-Is it me, or do ppl understand what "tuberose and orange blossom and a base of sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean and myrrh" is supposed to smell like. Listing the contents is so pointless.
-What a fun post, never knew there were so many. I'll end my comment quoting you: "Who buys this stuff??"

Hot Bot said...

Wow, I've never heard of half of these.

But I do have to admit that I like Still by JLo.

E said...

WOAH. That's a lot. I remember how everyone was freaking out about how JLO's butt was showing in her GLOW advertisement. And then they would blur it out in teen magazines. I didn't understand...

And those LOVELY commercials with Sarah Jessica Parker. So wonderful, I still love them.

The Stiletto Effect said...

I have the "Glow by JLo", I won a magazine contest a long time ago and that was the prize (it's ok, but nothing special I think).
When SKP's "Lovely" came out I wanted to buy it, but then I tried it on and quit buying it (it smells good but its more of a summer fragrance and now its almost winter here hehe!
The ones I really want to buy are those two by Kate Moss (being Kate my fashion icon I really need those in my collection)!
The "Harajuki Lovers" look so damn cute (I have no idea if they smell good, although I bet they do), but the dolls are so cute I would probably buy them all lol.
Those two by Sean Combs (I've never smelled it) but the ads look damn sexy!
Fragrances by Jessica Simpson, Britney or Paris etc, I would never buy... (Just thinking about buying it, it seems too tacky, sorry but it's just my opinion).
And who the hell buys fragrances by Celine Dion???? Is that for real?
D&V Beckham? No Comments!
I think Beyonce looks amazing in that ad and the perfume smells great!
The Chanel Ads are so chic and glamorous! Nicole looks so beautiful and gorgeous. Although I think Nº5 has a strong smell I love Coco Mademoiselle and I'm wearing it right now.
I like the old CK ads. I also have this Obsession fragrance but the first one.
I love perfumes and fragrances, and I have plenty. I even collect miniatures lol
Ok, enough, or you'll faint with so much blah, blah, blah... lol
You did a great post :) congrats!
Love
Su
Keep in touch

fashion herald said...

i love the sjp commercial, she's so wacky and fun in it! this reminded me of the fake perfume hawkers i saw on the street yesterday, selling "Ms. Koko" perfume - killing me!

Seraphine said...

wow *deep breath* you have a LOT of stuff in today's post! awesome. and when all is said, i still think kate moss is the best model in the world. if i had only one model to choose, she'd be my choice hands down.
and i agree, love at first glow is a great name for a perfume.

A Black Tie Event said...

Wow this was a great post! I have never, ever understood why every celebrity feels the need to create their own fragrance (besides the making money part)...why perfume? Anyways, I really lov Gwen Stefnai's perfumes, especially the Harajuku Lovers line.

jess said...

I like Glow. I am in love with the Chan 5 commercail. It was so magical

Eyeliah @ stylesymmetry.com said...

Goodness! Took forever but was a great post. Who knew it'd be such a cash cow!

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

wow it seems every celeb has multi fragrances. I didnt realise that they all had so many. I thought j-lo had about two or three and with SJP i thought she only had lovely and covet,wow im shocked at the amount the all have.
muah!
Marian.

Whoa.. I didnt know that there's a whole bunch of celeb fragrances out there-- Im only familiar with Glow by J.Lo as I got it as a pressie last year.. Im interested in Chloe and Kate Moss' scents, tho~

yiqin; said...

I love the kate moss one! It smells so nice.

Paula said...

I just bought myself the Mariah Carey Luscious Pink gift set online from lookfantastic.com and I am really happy with it. I was totally blown away with how many celeb fragrances there are now..insane!

Jennifer Stoddart said...

Super fun post! I remember that first one for Glow so well. I loved that perfume and that ad when it came out.

I'd never seen the Katherine Heigl ad for Nautica- I love her.

miss vintage love said...

Holy blog!!:) Love it.
I am addicted to JLos "Live Luxe", I was kinda embarassed to buy it but it smelled SO good, now I'm proud to wear it, haha.

cletsey said...

The perfume bottle is often meant to be a physical representation of the perfume
I still want Chanel no. 5 that was great for me.
