You already know how much we love Selena Gomez around here. So far, she’s managed to escape the child star curse, and has blossomed into a poised and pretty young woman. In addition to her adorable puppy love romance with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, she’s even becoming a bona fide style star, always dressing to impress, but staying within the boundaries of age appropriateness. We don’t have any daughters yet, but if we did, Selena would be one starlet we wouldn’t mind letting them emulate. On top of running a Disney empire with her smash hit show, Wizards of Waverly Place, she recently released a new album, featuring plenty of confidence-boosting, girl-power-themed songs geared towards young girls. And now, she’s announced that she’s releasing her very own fragrance, to hit department store shelves by Spring 2012.
When we first heard this bit of breaking news in the world of celebrity collaborations, we automatically assumed Selena was following in the footsteps of her internationally famous beau, who’s enjoyed mega success with his first female perfume, the sweet-smelling Someday. After some digging though, it’s clear Selena is taking a completely different route with her bottled blend. Instead of teaming up with a girly-whirly beauty brand or perfume powerhouse like Claire’s or Coty, the brunette beauty has partnered with Adrenalina, a lesser-known company focused on extreme sports and an adventurous lifestyle.
We can’t say we’re surprised, since Selena’s making quite a name for herself encouraging young women everywhere to accomplish their goals, weather they be in the classroom, or at the top of a ski slope. Selena spoke with E! Online about her newest venture and said, “I’ve been working on my fragrance for almost a year now. I’m excited [because] it’s something I’m interested in… I’m already doing the whole process of smelling things and designing it and the campaign and everything, so it’ll be fun.”
Selena Gomez’s debut fragrance comes in purple bottle that looks like a flowing skirt with gold and purple lips exploding out of the top. The scent has notes of raspberry, peach, pineapple, purple freesia, musk, dewberry, chocolate, vanilla and amber.
