It’s a common knowledge that some celebrities are very interested in launching their own perfumes. Some of them tried it once and found out that it wasn’t really their cup of tea, yet others found a new hobby in it.
In recent years, celebrities have signed contracts with perfume houses to associate their name with a signature scent as a self-promotion campaign. The scents are then marketed. Usually, the main selling point are the celebrities’ names associated with the fragrance. Also, the celebrities usually film an advertisement on the perfume, which garners, even more, attention.
We have chosen ten of all celeb fragrances you need to try some time in the future and we made a list of them below!
