Perfume Platitudes: When Smellebrities Speak

Crash Davis: It’s time to work on your interviews.

Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh: My interviews? What do I gotta do?

Davis: You’re gonna have to learn your clichés. You’re gonna have to study them, you’re gonna have to know them. They’re your friends. Write this down: “We gotta play it one day at a time.”

LaLoosh: Got to play . . . It’s pretty boring.

Davis: ‘Course it’s boring, that’s the point. Write it down.

LaLoosh: One . . . day . . . at a . . . time.

Davis: “I’m just happy to be here. Hope I can help the ball club.” I know, write it down. “I just wanna give it my best shot, and the good Lord willing, things will work out.

Nicole Richie 2012
“This scent is something that I am truly proud of and something that I myself love to wear. I was very closely involved in the creation of Nicole and took a hands-on approach with its development, helping with everything from the notes that are featured to the packaging and the products’ design,” Nicole revealed.

Peter Andre 2010
“I will be traveling around the country doing perfume signings and meeting my fans. I can’t wait to hear what they think. I hope people enjoy this fragrance as much as I enjoyed developing it for them.”

Heidi Klum 2011
“Working for a long time on developing a signature scent and watching it finally come to life is so exciting,” Klum said in a statement. “I never thought my nose would recover from sniffing so many scent combinations but it is all worth it.”

Jordin Sparks 2010
[Jordin] Sparks, an avid fan of fragrances, was highly involved in the development of her signature scent to ensure that it would be unique and represent her young and vibrant personality and embrace her creative force.

Kate Moss 2010
While some celebrities might simply lend their name to signature fragrances, Kate Moss was involved in every process of the development of her latest scent - Vintage Muse - as these exclusive pics illustrate. 
“Being a part of the creative process inspired me to develop Vintage Muse, a gorgeously chic, refined fragrance that lifts and inspires.”

Taylor Swift 2011
Taylor Swift has released a new video showing her behind the scenes involvement during the creation of her first fragrance, Wonderstruck. 
Swift got her hands (and her nose) dirty by being so intimately involved in the process, as the video shows her sniffing samples and offering her approval, simply by the look on her face. You can tell which notes she likes and dislikes via her facial expressions after she takes a whiff. Swift was clearly engaged by the process of creating her own perfume.

“We just gotta smell it one blotter at a time.”

Sometimes they are much more than that! Taylor Swift has the unique ability to formulate perfume by facial pantomime.
