What’s That Smell? New Fragrances Make Their Debut

Jul 22, 2011 By Amy

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally over the whole celebrity fragrance craze. First Khole & Lamar, then Rihanna, and now David Beckham and Celine Dion are joining the club.

David Beckham will be releasing “Homme” come September. The scent is described as being masculine will include notes of ginger, cashmere wood, leather, and mahogany wood. I guess this is what a sweaty rugged soccer (that’s football for countries outside of the US) smells like.  I wonder why the emphasis on ‘manly’ and ‘masculine’? I’d much rather have clean and sexy, then again I’m thinking Posh probably wears the pants in that family. If the scent isn’t enough for you, there’s also going to be a body wash, deodorant body spray, and deodorant stick…so you can be Beckham masculine at all times.

Now apparently smelling good is a big business for Celine Dion, I didn’t even know she had a fragrance line, but she’s sold $850 million globally since 2003. Who is buying this stuff? Was it on major clearance? Whatever the case, now Dion is releasing a new scent named “Signature” which will also debut in September. Although, this isn’t actually a scent, it’s referred to as a “juice”. That doesn’t sound appealing at all! The ‘juice’ contains hints of mimosa, pink lady apple and wood to name a few of its many ingredients.

Sorry but Celine Dion doesn’t scream sexy and romantic to me and I’d much rather have a man wearing Tom Ford’s scents over David Beckham’s cologne. Now when it comes to fragrances, perhaps choosing a scent from a brand is a safer, less embarrassing, call then a celebrity product? So then when people ask what you’re wearing you don’t have to sheepishly respond with Celine Dion. Therefore, designer labels Givenchy and BCBG Max Azria aren’t letting celebrities have all the fun are also making news with the release of their scents.

Givenchy and creative director Riccardo Tisci are releasing their first fragrance together, “Dahlia Noir” which will be available come August.  ”It was about a woman that represents my style,” Tisci said of the fragrance. The scent will be positioned in the high end category with an accompanying ad campaign shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott featuring model and muse Mariacarla Boscono.

Lastly, BCBG Max Azria is entering the game with their inaugural scent “Reenters” set to be released August 1. With this being their first fragrance, there’s definitely some pressure on that pretty pink bottle to do well. The only problem? It looks a little too much like the already sucessful Oh Lola! scent from Marc Jacobs, so that’s a pretty big fail in my book.

What do you think? Are these scents stinky or delightful?
