THE NEWEST CROP OF CELEB SCENTS TAKE CENTER STAGE, WHILE DESIGNERS FIND INSPIRATION IN THE GLITZ AND GLAM OF TINSELTOWN.
Grammy winner Faith Hill’s debut scent is a sparkling bouquet of pink peony, crisp pear, southern magnolia, gardenia, iris and cashmere skin musk, conjuring up the singer’s romantic ballads. All-American, Academy Award–winning actress Reese Witherspoon has partnered with Avon for her first scent, In Bloom. The juice blends Georgia peach tea leaves, magnolia, jasmine and cashmere woods—Witherspoon’s interpretation of a woman’s sensual side. From Parlux comes Queen by Queen Latifah. The rapper/actress/singer’s eau is a combination of aged tequila, sparkling golden accord, baie rose, cognac, Moroccan coriander, Egyptian incense and Indonesian patchouli. The textured, crimson bottle contains a 3-D heart, representing her message of beauty from within. Jennifer Lopez’s newest, My Glow, was inspired by the birth of her twins, Max and Emme, and is a soft blend of freesia, lavender flower, white rose, Casablanca lily and heliotrope. Taking its cue from Hollywood, Moschino imbues classic style with a modern spin in Glamour. The scent’s heart is a play on contrasts—mixing warm hibiscus with sheer water lily and delicate orchid, laced with top notes of wormwood, tangerine flower and sea salt and a base of cedarwood, amber and white musk. Michael Kors’ exuberant new scent, Very Hollywood, offers an olfactive interpretation of the spotlight. Wet jasmine, ylang-ylang and raspberry are laced with gardenia, Italian orris, vetiver and soft white musk, housed in a flacon inspired by flashbulbs.
