Celebrity Fragrances

Britney Spears just relaunched two of her perfumes in one bottle and called it Fantasy Twist.

Britney Spears Fantasy Twist

This is her 11th fragrance released in nine years. That's insane.


I kinda hate to admit it, but I own a few and I like them. Midnight Fantasy and In Control are my favorites. I also have a few from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers line. Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Paris Hilton, Hilary Duff, and the Kardashians also have successful lines.

I always thought of celebrity fragrances as a thing for women to do, but realized there are ton created by men as well. Antonio Banderas has seven. Tim McGraw has four. David Beckham, Patrick Dempsey, 50 Cent, Derek Jeter, Keith Urban, Diddy, Alan Cumming (random), Bruce Willis, Usher, and Justin Bieber all have colognes too. Oh no, wait. Bieber’s are perfumes for women girls. Weird.
 
 
I think most people agree that Charlize Theron is the best spokes model there ever was for a perfume (see here), but it seems she now has some competition. Brad Pitt’s commercial for Chanel No. 5 was released last week.



Oh, wait. That wasn't it. But look at the real one, it's not much better.



Boo. That commercial is awful! It feels like it came out of the ‘80s and not at all worthy of Chanel. Why do you think he did it? For the paycheck? He’s rich! He’s not alone though. A lot of our favorite male celebs have posed for cologne ads.

 
Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, Common, Clive Owen, Orlando Bloom, Matthew McConaughey (for two brands),
Alexander Skarsgard, Ewan McGregor, Tom Brady, James Franco, Josh Harnett.
 
What do you think about celebrity or celebrity endorsed fragrances?
Do you have any?

Seems like anyone can create a perfume these days! Just slap a famous person's name on it and it will sell!

Personally not a big fan of perfume and since I work in a hospital I can't wear it (too many patients w/ breathing issues, COPS, etc)

I saw that Brad Pitt commercial last night. I was totally confused until the end. (I was only half paying attn) I'm not a perfume person. I have only ever bought on kind in my life. CK one. And I only use it maybe twice a year. John is a cologne guy. Speaking of which, he is currently out. I need to figure out what to get him next.

I had no idea Britney had 11 fragrance altogether!! I totally have the Justin Bieber perfume and it's beyond amazing!! I always get comments on it when I'm wearing it. haha!

The Brad Pitt commerical is just odd!! I had to watch it 3 times to really understand what he was talking about!!

I totally bought my ex-boyfriend the cologne that JT was a spokesmen for. I thought every time he would wear I would picture Justin!! I'm such a dork... I know! :)

I thought the womens ones were pretty cheesy, but holy hell, the mens ones are hilarious. Patrick Dempsey??
BRUCE WILLIS?! Awesome.

Where is Gerard Butler's fragrance?
I'd buy that one if it ever happened.

I can't stand Paris Hilton, but girl has a great fragrance team. I've got her set and love it.

I have this on my list of things to blog about. It's a long list, so I may never get to it. Ha!

I've only bought 2 celeb fragrances. I have one of Sarah Jessica Parker's and one of Kim Kardashian's. I hate to admit it, but I LOVE the Kim K one.

I didn't hate the Chanel commercial like the rest of the world does. I also have a huge soft spot for Bradley and anything Chanel related...

I don't think I've ever smelled a Britney perfume before...

I think I'm the only person on the planet who doesn't totally hate that commercial. I think it's a little romantic. I know, I know...

I LOVE Britney Spears' Curious, I get SO many compliments on it and a lot of people can't belive it when I tell them what it is. I also have a couple Gwen Stefani perfumes, which smell just as amazing. So I'm definitley a fan of the celebrity perfumes!

I don't own a single bottle of perfume. I know, I'm weird! But I love me some body spray!
