Who buys celebrity peferfumes and colognes?

I thought perfumes and colognes were on their way out of fashion. Who wears them? More importantly, how many fans of celebrities are really going to purchase the celebrity's scent?

Does anyone here like any of these scent? If so, which ones?

NEVER. I buy the scent i like.

I am waiting for Liz Taylor to come out with a Black Diamond douche.

Ten years ago we had a hilarious thread about this where people dreamed up new celebrity fragrances. My two favorites were "Over, by Sharon Stone" and "Still, by Christopher Reeve" (who was still alive then, but completely paralyzed).

The only celeb scent I'd even consider buying is "Cumming," just because it cracks me up.

None of the celebs who hawk their own brand of fragrances interests me, but that's because the products are marketed to young women (even though Derek Jeter and P. Diddy's brands are among the most popular, it's because women are buying the scents for their bf's and husbands).

The fact that "Fancy" by Jessica Simpson was one of the best-selling celeb fragrances in 2011 is just pathetic, but not surprising given that half our country was stupid enough to vote for Shit Romney, y'know? Americans are uneducated and easily wooed by any old fuckery pedaled to them on TV.

My favorite is "Taint" by Elias Koteas.

Some of the celeb perfumes come with an enticing free gift. Or a decorative bottle for the vanity.

I worked the fragrance counter last holiday season. If I ever smell one of those putrid stenches (Beiber, Britney, Kylie, MADGE!)again it will be too soon.

Who buys these? Desperado saddos who lack a sense of smell and taste.

I thought uninspired men bought those celebrity scents as Christmas gifts for their wives.

I loved that thread, r3.

There were some very funny ones in it.

I've smelled those. They are truly disgusting. They are so sweet, fruity and cheap smelling. They are made with the cheapest, unnatural fake ingredients. I bet truck stops sell better fragrances.

r7, don't some of the smarter celebs have a good professional put them together?

I thought that's why some of them were successful; they were good enough that they sold, even if no one admitting buying them.

Should I buy cheap perfume from the drug store? Any harm done?

I bought Twiggy's for the bottle -- very cool on the bathroom counter and the right colors. And she's a cool icon for me. No idea how it smells though.

Sort of related...

Has anyone noticed Fergie as the "face" of that super cheap-ass 99cent "Wet and Wild" cosmetic line they sell in drugstores and dollar stores.

This is a huge fall from Kohls, HP, and Dr. Pepper.

This means she's officially over, right?

by Anonymousreply 1511/14/2012

She's one of the few singers, particularly the white ones, who actually has a real voice, r15.

If she stays off the meth and booze, I think she can have a comeback.

I didn't know they still had Wet and Wild.

J'Adore is about 10 years old.

Bought it way back then. Loved it.

It's funny when I find someone wearing it now. I had it first, bitches.

Halle Berry's is on sale cheap at CVS around the country, ha. No, I don't know anyone who wears this stuff, male or female (I only wear Burbery London), but it's GREAT to spray around the room if there is stubborn cat odor, etc. Not kidding. Lingers in the air and not as fake as pine freshener or whatever. :)

I wear Bulgari Black, but have always wondered who buys the celebrity fragances all which I have never purposely tried to smell.

by Anonymousreply 1911/14/2012

I do buy SJP's Lovely because I think it's a great scent. I've gotten many compliments. It's a fresh, clean fragrance. I tried it at Macy's and loved it but would never have bought it just because it's a "celebrity" perfume.

by Anonymousreply 2011/14/2012

It's better than the fruity pink "body sprays" that were all the rage a few years ago. Although I think they still sell them. The "Raspberry" was very popular, and I used to sit in class and just gag.

Who would admit to wearing Trump's odor?

UNINHIBITED by Cher, bitches!

by Anonymousreply 2311/14/2012

@ R23 I have never smelled Cher's original Uninhibited but I have heard it is fabulous. An unopened bottle of it was purchased for $1 by a message board friend at a garage sale a few years ago and she sold it on Ebay for over $1,000.

There's nothing trashier than celebrity fragrances. My mom used to wear White Diamonds when I was a kid, but even she got a clue.

If I wanted to smell like an egotistical whore, I'd go to

I was surprised when I read that Britney Spears makes a fortune off of her perfume. I think it said that she has more than one.

Her next fragrance should be called Déchets Blancs.

r4, it smells like burnt rubber, leather, tobacco and l'air d'video arcade.


by Anonymousreply 2711/14/2012

I wear SJP's Covet. Her perfumes aren't actually that bad you guys. Didn't know Madonna had a perfume? I've always liked White Diamonds because it brings back memories of me being younger and not knowing what perfumes are ~good~

R26 perfumes are big money even for has beens. B-list Halle Berry apparently still makes a lot of money of hers even!

I don't know anyone under 40 who wears perfume or cologne. It's mostly older people who are stuck in the 80s.

by Anonymousreply 3011/15/2012

r3 I was on DL back then, and the "Celebrity Fragrances" thread was hilarious. The ones I remember were "White Woman" by Michael Jackson and "Jackpot!" by Kate Capshaw.

Can not imagine the scent.

Mariah, I heard you were coming out with your own perfume and calling it Pearl Necklace.

I actually think the Nicki Minaj bottle is cool.

Cher should bring back her fragrance. If she doesn't want any more money, she can donate it to worthy causes.

A female friend of mine wears Glow by J. Lo. She's not desperate or sad. She's actually an intelligent person.

"I don't know anyone under 40 who wears perfume or cologne. It's mostly older people who are stuck in the 80s."

You're wrong. Plenty of young people wear fragrance - the biggest selling perfumes are generally ones aimed at young women. You think elderly ladies are buying the Britney Spears perfumes?

Paul Reubens always says in interviews that he regrets never coming out with his own fragrance which he wanted to call "Eau de Pee-wee".

Sorry to burst your bubble toots but J'Adore has been around since at least 1990.
