Want to smell like a guidette?

I didn’t think so…

But IF by chance you DO want to smell like a guidette, you’re about to get your chance!

Jersey Shore‘s fourth season may be over, but Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is keeping busy—and not just with her GTL routine. This month, the pint-sized princess is launching Snooki, a perfume inspired by her favorite sweet treats like cupcakes, kiwi, and lychee ($45 at perfumania.com on November 25th). “It’s the kind of fragrance that makes you hungry for more,” she said. Catch Snooki when she launches the fragrance Thursday, November 10th on HSN.

FIRST LOOK! Scarlett Johansson’s new Dolce & Gabbana short film!



Dolce & Gabbana
just launched the latest iteration of their signature fragrance, The One Lace Edition.

Inspired by delicate lace, the scent is sultry and sophisticated: Sparkling bergamot and jasmine meld with notes of plum and mossy vetiver. The drydown is warm, intriguing and ultra-feminine.

The short film which was shot by Jean Baptiste Mondino (and inspired by Italian filmmakers like Federico Fellini), and shows behind-the-scenes footage of the designers working on set with lace, as well as the fashion house’s muse, Scarlett Johansson. The actress, decked out in ’60s era hair, cat-eye liner and a form-fitting lace dress, portrays a starlet being interviewed between takes.

I’m not a fan of the short film, to be honest. It looks like more of an SNL commercial (you know I’m right).

Louis Vuitton releasing a fragrance!!

Believe it or not, in a time when everyone and their dog has their own fragrance, Louis Vuitton has yet to jump onto the bandwagon. But that’s all about to change!

More from Elle!

The storied French house has allegedly hired Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, a perfumer whose family has worked in fragrance for almost as long as Vuitton has worked in luggage. Belletrud’s the nose behind a handful of well known scents including Stella McCartney’s eponymous fragrance, Dior’s Addict and Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classic and has, according to WWD, been busy sourcing “rare, almost-extinct flowers” for the Vuitton perfume.

Though a creative director of a brand as massive as Vuitton may not have much to do with whatever signature scent blooms from the label, they are associated with the look of the perfume and given the two very different people who may or may not be at the head of the house within six months—Marc Jacobs or, as rumored, Phoebe Philo if Marc goes to Dior—we can’t help but picture two opposing bottles, boxes and celebratory launches.

Can’t wait to smell it!


Katy Perry launching a new fragrance!!

Katy Perry is launching a second fragrance, in honor of her fans, the “Katycats”. The new fragrance will be called “Meow”. Her debut fragrance was called “Purr”.

Perry announced the new scent Wednesday (October 12) on Twitter, calling it the “bestie” to Purr and promising that Meow will be “very sweet & inspired by that magical place, CANDYFORNIA!”

So, will it smell like cotton candy and sun-tan lotion? On Tuesday, Perry asked her ‘Cats to predict the name of the fragrance, with 10 winners receiving the perfume and one lucky fan receiving an invite to the Meow launch event, set for December. As it turns out, a whole lot of folks seemed to guess correctly — though we did like some of the incorrect guesses, like “Catnip,” “Furrytail” and, uh, “Pussy Power.”

“Some of you guessed my sister perfume right!” she wrote. “I can’t wait to reveal her, she is so sweet!”

Meow follows on the heels of Perry’s successful Purr fragrance, which she debuted in July, wearing cat ears to the launch party in Toronto. Earlier, she had pulses pounding when she slipped into a body-hugging catsuit and posed provocatively with a giant pink ball of yarn in promotional ads for the perfume.

Perhaps Perry will use her upcoming video, for new single “The One That Got Away,” as a platform to give fans a sneak peek at the packaging for the fragrance.
