These days, every “celebrity” who ever got a one-line blurb in People Magazine is running to the nearest fragrance manufacturer with a pitch and a pre-printed contract. In general, we don’t necessarily dislike star scents – and are even pleasantly surprised by most of them – but sometimes we feel utterly blitzed with the amount of lotions and potions on the market that bear the names and faces of movie stars, fashion designers and pop singers.
Because it seems like just about everyone and their personal assistant has a perfume, we are shocked it took platinum hit maker and country crooner Taylor Swift this long to roll out her very own sweet-smelling iteration. After all, she erupted onto the scene way back in 2006, and has enjoyed an enduring, decorated career in mainstream music ever since. Most other starlets might be on their fourth or fifth scent by now!
She took her time concocting the perfect perfume and we’re actually interested in taking a whiff when Taylor Swift Wonderstruck hits shelves this October. We already adore the 21-year-old’s romantic, frilly style when it comes to her clothes, hair and makeup, so we imagine we might share a similar vision for a sweet, romantic, bottled blend.
Taylor is famous for her creative, flirty, and borderline-boy crazy lyrics, so we have a feeling the teen set will go equally crazy over her first foray into fragrance as they go over her catchy hit singles. Not surprisingly, the sweet scent is rumored to include gourmand notes like warm sugar, vanilla, musk and sandalwood – alongside effervescent fruity notes like peach and raspberry. But even if Taylor’s scent doesn’t please your personal palate, we have a feeling the jeweled purple and gold bottle will grab your attention.
About her inspiration behind her first fragrance, Ms. Swift says, “I wrote the lyric, ‘I’m wonderstruck,’ for the song ‘Enchanted’ about the first time you meet someone. It’s exciting to think that Wonderstruck will play a role in creating some of those memories.”
