Video: Five of the Best – New Celebrity Scents

Fri, 14 September 2012 8:44AM

Little Monsters, I have news…

Lady Gaga’s FAME fragrance is going on sale this Sunday the 16th of September. *Squeal*

So, in the spirit of that ever-growing giant known as the celebrity scent, this week’s theme is FRAGRANCE. Celebrity fragrance, that is. Yes, Primpers, this month (and next month too) sees the launch of new fragrances from Halle Berry, Beyonce, JLo and Nicole Richie, each one offering something a little quirky, sexy and oh-so-fun.

Here’s the rundown…


And here are the notes…

1. Lady Gaga Fame, $110

This hotly anticipated scent is a fragrance first with its black liquid, and smells as sexy and mysterious as you imagine it to be. On sale exclusively to MYER from the 16th of September (and then wider distribution from 8th of October) this one is sure to fly off the shelves.

2. Halle Berry Closer, $49

The latest scent from Halle is an interesting one, Primpers. It takes notes traditionally used in male scents and mixes them with female-oriented notes and blends the two together – creating a lovely smell that is perfect for women, and has the men swooning in your wake. Oh Halle, you genius you!

Buy it from Priceline, Target and selected pharmacies now.

3. Beyonce Midnight Heat, $49

The follow on from Heat, this fragrance is slightly sexier and more, well, suited to the PM than the original. It’s a fruity floral packed with starfruit, dragon fruit, sandalwood and peony and is available at Target and selected pharmacies.

4. Glowing by Jennifer Lopez, $85

The novelty factor of this bottle is right up with there whoopee cushions and stick-on moustaches, only far classier. Yep, when you push the squirter down, the entire bottle lights up. Oh, the fun one has with things like this. On the fragrance itself, it holds notes of vanilla, patchouli, Cyprus musk and other delicious additions, but they had me at the bottle. You can get your light-up-delight from the 21st of October.

5. Nicole by Nicole Richie, $79

This gorgeous feminine yet bohemian scent draws on Nicole’s childhood memories of her mother’s ability to layer fragrance. It is complex, yummy and so good I’m wearing it right now. If you like notes of blackberry, Moroccan rose, sandalwood and patchouli, you’re going to love this. BUT, you’ll have to wait until the 14th of October when it goes on sale at MYER, David Jones and selected independents.

Tell me Primpers…

Any of these celebrity scents take your eye?

    I think we all would love to see what Gaga has come up with, but I would also love to try Jennifer Lopez scent (I have never been a huge fan) but the notes in this one intrigue me.

    Omg J Lo’s perfume sounds amazing! PS: Has anyone else noticed that the bottle for Nicole Richies new perfume is exactly the same as Mariah Carey’s?

  • Posted by: jennybean Enthusiast // Thu, 20 September 2012 03:44pm

    I heard that gaga’s scent was actually more on the fruity side? I’m interested in the Nicole perfume. She has good taste! Not so sure about the bottle though.

  • Posted by: Morning Star Devotee // Fri, 21 September 2012 10:16pm

    I’m interested to see what Nicole Ritchie’s perfume is like. I like the bottle anyway.

    I have to admit that I have a couple of Beyonce’s perfumes (I never really like admitting that I own celebrity perfume), so I’ll have to check out Midnight Heat!

  • Posted by: nita01 Master Fan // Mon, 1 October 2012 07:20pm
