Vera Wang‘s ad for her new fragrance Lovestruck features Leighton Meester in it, looking as lovestruck as they come. We only wish we could have a gorgeous man running across New York to get us a bouquet of the most stunning pink blooms (which promptly get flung aside) while we wait in sweet anticipation on a balcony. Actually, while we’re wishing for things, we’d want that glorious gown too, because she looks flawless in it. Leighton’s signed on for two years and got a $ 3 million deal going with Vera Wang, just for this fragrance alone. Well done, Blair! XOXO, Jealous Girl
We know that the word “fifi” doesn’t really inspire sex appeal, but the Fifi Awards are a pretty big deal, whether or not they sound frou-frou—this annual show is one of the most prestigious events of the fragrance industry. Halle Berry took at up a notch at the 2011 awards, yesterday in NYC, wearing an incredibly sexy asymmetrical cut-out dress by Halston with Christian Louboutin heels! Halle won the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year award for her scent “Reveal”, as well. So she dressed in honor of its name? Because this is pretty “reveal-ing”, no?
Don’t mind if we sound jealous. We aren’t really. We’re actually in awe of that stomach! And the rest of that body, for that matter. Halle was in good company at the show with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Fergie, Kate Walsh and Padma Lakshmi around, and we have to say, everyone was spiffily dressed. Fergie especially, in a flowing canary yellow BCBG Max Azria Atelier gown with a turquoise clutch. She won New Fragrance Celebrity of the Year Award for her perfume “Outspoken”. We don’t know why Paz de la Huerta decided to wear no make-up and scowl throughout, so we’re just going to focus on Mary’s awesome Gucci dress. Take a look at the pictures below and give us your verdict.

Just kiddin’. Orlando Bloom is the face of Boss ORANGE fragrance for men, which is why he gets his cologne in bulk. Doubles as an armrest, which is nice.
Bloom is seen here at a photo call in Madrid on March 16 promoting the new scent.

Katy Perry stepped out fittingly enough in Cologne, Germany to promote her new fragrance “Purr,” and she was quite the vision in purrple (sorry). Perry looked great as she modeled with her now perfume and managed to show off an eyeful of cleavage too. Check out a few more shots of the California Gurl on the purple carpet in our gallery below.

This news just made us facepalm. Not that we have anything against her, but Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have a new fragrance. Correction, they’re pimping out a new unisex fragrance so you can drench yourself in the scent of their not-so-newlywed bliss. And fill their bank account with even more money so they can forge their togetherness by swimming in their collective millions.
Much like an M Night Shyamalan film, but less grizzly, it’s called Unbreakable by Khloe and Lamar, just in case you haven’t been branded by their love already. How can you not be? They’re turning their marriage into a reality show. You can’t run away from it. Khloe got onto her Celebuzz page (where you can see the whole advertisement) to reveal, “…We are absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!!! We’ve both been wearing it every day since its completion and I can’t stop smelling myself LOL. People literally stop me and ask what I’m wearing and the fact that I can say my own fragrance blows my mind!!!…”
Time for another facepalm. They’re launching right before Valentine’s Day. Oh no…here comes the barfing.
They do say that our sense of smell is the strongest sense tied to memory, which explains why we get so nostalgic when we get a whiff or Play-Doh or black markers that smell like licorice – it’s like being 6-year-old again. Unfortunately for Taylor Swift, her sense of smell is only good for one thing: remembering boyfriends past, because it sounds like Taylor only dates dudes who love to pile on the cologne. Or maybe it just has something to do with the fact that Swift is launching a fragrance of her own and this is just another neat way to tie her ex-boyfriends into everything she does. Whatevs!
Swift appears in a spread in Allure magazine where she discusses some special people in her life and what they smelled like. She says “Different smells bring different relationships to mind for me. . .IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d put on Abercrombie 8 to remember when I was in ninth grade and had my first boyfriend, because he gave me that.” Well okay, that’s cute. Then she says “The coolest girl in school wore Britney Spears Fantasy.” Well that’s just a weird thing to remember, but maybe that’s because the coolest girl in our school never came within 20 feet of us. Moving on. Taylor even has a scent that hurts her to talk about. “Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is still a difficult one for me to smell,” she says, hinting that it brings up bad memories of an ex, though she won’t say which ex. (Probably not John Mayer – we picture him as the type to wear Drakkar Noir, albeit ironically.)
This is one of those articles, much like when Cosmo runs features like “What Men Really Love In Bed! In Their Own Words!” and then has quotes from clearly not-real mean talking about “pleasure zones” and “making her scream” and other fictional bullsh*t you can’t believe is true. We don’t doubt that Swift has certain sense memories about these people, but never in our life have we ever known the names of any perfumes ever, it’s fishy that she can rattle off all these scents so clearly. But then again, we’re cold heartless people who aren’t moved or surprised by much in life. Unlike Swift. Taylor Swift is always surprised by something.
For some strange reason, Paris Hilton deems it fit to introduce some more stank, erm, fragrance to the unsuspecting public. She’s already got like, a gazillion scents out there with groundbreaking names like Paris, Heiress, Siren, Fairy Dust and Just Me. Somebody needs to tell Paris what Fairy Dust also means. It’s that white stuff that got her pal Lindsay Lohan into a whole lotta trouble. And after Paris’ pot shenanigans, she needs to walk a careful line (line…heehee).
Back to the point. Paris and her boobs dressed up as Marilyn Monroe to promote her latest scent, Tease. Because she wanted to hit you on the head with throwing in as much tease as possible. Paris is a tease. Marilyn is a tease. Perfume is a tease. You can’t run, you can’t hide.
What we want to know is A. does anybody care and B. does anybody even buy this stuff?
