I have a fair share of celebrity colognes in my cabinet—and may or may not spritz Britney Spears perfume when my sister and I are under the same roof. (Hey! Don’t judge me until you’ve experienced the magic that is Curious. Good stuff.) Most of the celebrity fragrances I think about were released in the past four years, but stars have been in the cologne/perfume-making game for decades. Decades, I tell you!
If you were a ’90s twentysomething, you had the option to smell like Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson and even the Spice Girls back in the day. That’s right: The girl power empresses had a scent. That’s a special brand of fabulous.
