Selena Gomez Talks New Perfume

Selena Gomez is joining the ranks of celebs that have their own fragrance, and the 19-year-old singer caught up with Access Hollywood and talked about her soon-to-be formulated perfume.

“[Girls] want to smell good for the boy they like at school, or for a crush. That’s what the main thing is!”

“I want it to be really romantic. I want it to be sweet and sophisticated.”

In order to come up with the perfect mixture, Selena has asked her fans to join in by going to selenagomezperfumes.com

“I’m creating the base of the scent and I’m inviting my fans to pick the top notes. Then we’ll pick the top 10 fans and they’ll come into the lab with me and help me pick the final scent.”

This past October, Selena’s pop star boyfriend Justin Bieber visited Jay Leno and talked about his record-breaking fragrance ‘Someday.’

“I thought that girls are going to like something that a guy will like, so I modeled it off of something I would like a girl to smell like,”

Heidi Klum debuts her fragrance, Shine, at Walgreens Times Square in NYC‏

Project Runway host, designer and supermodel Heidi Klum celebrated her new fragrance Shine, developed in collaboration with Coty Beauty, with a personal appearance on Wednesday, November 30th at Walgreens Times Square. Heidi met with hundreds of consumers who were given the chance to take a professional photo and receive a signed autograph from her.

As a top model, style icon, designer, business woman, wife and mother, Heidi embraces all that life has to offer. Heidi’s multi-faceted radiance is captured in her fragrance: Shine. As a sparkling floral scent which includes notes of juicy pear, spicy pink peppercorn and warm vanilla, Shine captures her effervescence and irrepressible love of life.

Here at MHU we’re not huge fans of celebrity fragrances. I don’t know what it is, I just get totally turned off by them. But they OBVIOUSLY sell, because pretty much every celebrity has one.

SPEAK UP: Have you ever bought a celebrity fragrance? What’s your experience?

Dakota Fanning’s controversial Marc Jacobs ads banned from the UK

Remember these ads? I posted them back in June when they were released by Marc Jacobs. The controversial ads are back in the public eye today, after the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK banned them, saying that while Dakota Fanning is over 16, the ads are overly sexual for a child.

Apparently the ad, which promotes Jacob’s fragrance ‘Oh Lola!’, was the subject of consumer complaints,  reports Telegraph.

The British Advertising Standards Authority has cracked down on the ad, which features a 17-year-old Fanning with an oversized bottle of the fragrance between her legs, after receiving complaints that the company was turning Fanning, a minor, into a sex object. Their statement:

“We noted that the model was holding up the perfume bottle which rested in her lap between her legs and we considered that its position was sexually provocative. We understood the model was 17 years old but we considered she looked under the age of 16. We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualise a child.”The Guardian reports that Coty, who makes the fragrance, doesn’t have the same problems with the ads, because most readers of the magazines featuring the ads are 25 or older, and that the picture was “similar to many other edgy images in those magazines.” They also stated that the ad doesn’t show any “private body parts or sexual activity,” and defended the ad as “provoking, but not indecent.”

What do you think of the ad? Is it too much? Does it deserve to be banned?
