Expanding beyond pageantry, the Miss Universe Organization has signed a fragrance license with Neil J. Katz and his Omni Scents organization.
Set to launch in August — in time for the back-to-school shopping season — a trio of women’s scents will be available. The scents, inspired by the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA contests, will be the first of an annual series of fragrances.
Focusing on “modern perceptions of beauty,” the global release will be the first license to launch from Omni Scents, Katz said. “Miss Universe fragrance collection will, we believe, resonate with women all over the globe who look to each contestant as a representative of what every girl dreams of becoming — beautiful, talented, a winner in every sense,” said the Omni Scents founder and president. “Truly, this is a fragrance concept that captures aspirational glamour, as it appeals to every girl who wants to feel confidently beautiful.”

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
