Tory Burch to launch a perfume

Beauty Byte: Fragrances for Tory Burch and Queen Latifah

One of the little secrets of the fashion industry is that any given designer's big money comes from selling perfume, not dresses. It makes sense: Most women can't afford a Dior gown, but they can splurge on a Dior fragrance. Those beauty sales add up to make millions of dollars.

So it's no surprise that Tory Burch is working on her own signature fragrance. The LA Times reports that along with adding to her accessories line, Burch is developing a fragrance. "I like coriander and tuberose and Vetiver by Guerlain," she says. There's not much news beyond that at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if the scent were to launch in a year or two.

She's not the only one, though. Queen Latifah is also getting into the scent business. To find out more about it,


Queen Latifah has inked a deal with Parlux, the same company that produces fragrances for Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson. The yet-to-be-named scent is due next fall. "I see fragrance as just a natural expression of this state of love — scent expresses a woman's confidence and sensuality, it's how she embraces her body, her mind and her strength," Latifah said to WWD. No word on what the perfume will smell like, but this is one celebrity scent I'm actually looking forward to. Something tells me it won't be powdery or fruity; let's hope that Queen does something unusual.

I'm also interested in Queen Latifah's. She's always struck me as just a cool woman and hopefully that will roll over into her scent as well. :)

I'm so over celebrity scents but I get that you'd want to capitalize on your name and make some big bucks off your fans while you still can.
