If an American Idol winner were to release a celebrity fragrance called Because of You, it would be logical to conclude that the singer in question was Kelly Clarkson. Not so, though, because next week Jordin Sparks will be launching a scent with that very moniker.
Jordin says the scent isn't named for her fellow Idol's hit song, but instead came about because "my fans are the reason that I get to do any of this . . . [they] deserve a high-quality, reasonably priced scent." She chose the name, she says, to show how much she appreciates them. Because of You is certainly reasonably priced (it'll launch at $9.50 a bottle) and sounds like a young scent appropriate for Jordin's fans — it's described as a "fruity floriental" with notes of orange, currant, nectarine, orchid, peony, musk, vanilla, and an amber/woodsy base. Given how low its price point is, will you be interested in giving it a sniff?
