Celebrity talent spans many spectrums. We just can’t get enough of them because they’re accomplished in major films, show up in our most addictive TV shows, and take the lead on songs we belt out in the car. It’s truly a rite of passage into stardom, however, when a celebrity stirs up our senses and creates their own fragrance.
Celeb power now comes in a bottle. The range from perfumes to colognes doesn’t always turn a consumer into smelling exactly like them, though. The scents with a star-centered tagline and sexy bottles encapsulate their personalities, their essence, and their brand. Giving a loved one a signature scent can be a very personal piece of everyday life. A new fragrance makes for the perfect gift, especially when it’s one with a celebrity name on it.
Get a whiff of our favorite new star-powered scents.

Daring, seductive and a thoughtful blend of fruits, red berries, purple plums and ripe peaches, with scents of Hawaiian hibiscus flowers makes this scent stand out from the rest.
