J.Lo versus Halle.
That’s the battle shaping up at perfume counters worldwide come fall as both megastars launch fragrances under license with Coty.
For Jennifer Lopez — a pioneer in the celebrity scent world — Love and Glamour marks her 16th fragrance and the biggest since she gave birth to twins. Berry, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer — Reveal is her third fragrance, but she’s determined in the long run to make as big a beauty mark as Lopez.
And, as always with celebrity fragrances, the two women contend the perfumes contain dollops of their personalities.
“This is a part of expressing who I really am — for the good and the bad, it’s about being comfortable with myself as a woman, and sharing secret parts of myself,” said Berry of Reveal.
Lopez found regaining her pre-baby schedule and body to be inspiring when concocting Love and Glamour. “It was right after the babies, when I was getting back to work and getting back to what I do again,” said Lopez of her inspiration. “It just felt like a time of a lot of love and that seemed very romantic to me — I said it seems like love and glamour.”
