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.

WATCH Eva Mendes sing in this new Thierry Mugler commercial!


Eva Mendes on WhoSay

Eva Mendes is the face of Thierry Mugler’s Angel fragrance. The beautiful actress sings “The Windmills of Your Mind” in the new commercial. More from Stylist:

After we talked about her beauty routine and long-standing love for the Angel scent, the actress actually revealed that she wasn’t originally slated to sing in the commercial: “They had the original version of the song and they said they wanted to modernize it. I quickly volunteered, I was like, ‘I could modernize it.’ It just happens to be one of my favorite songs. It was a big moment for me.”

The commercial is finally out, and it’s a much more stylized version than the intimate making-of video. Let us know what you think of the final cut. Are you looking forward seeing to Mendes sing in future projects?


Betsey Johnson launching new fragrance called Too Too

Betsey Johnson, 69, just unveiled a new fragrance! The designer recently launched her newest venture, Too Too, and Stylist has the first look!

The perfume is a blend of sweet passion fruit, mandarin, ginger, strawberry leaves, jasmine, patchouli and sandalwood. But there are three aromatic standouts for Johnson.

“The black vanilla is exotic, tasty and strange. The pink musk…it’s heavy duty and super sexy. And the Bulgarian rose, my all time favorite,” she said. “It really nails the guys love its sexiness trail.”

Clearly Johnson’s years as a dancer inspired her latest masterpiece, and the bottle’s pink and black tutu, fishnet and curvaceous corseted top represent special moments on-stage.

“My costume was almost the same as the bottle when I danced the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Can-Can, and Cabaret,” she said.

Too Too ($42-$82) will launch exclusively October 2011 through April 2012 at Sephora before hitting department store and specialty boutique counters in May.
