Selena Gomez, much like her pop sensation boyfriend, Justin Bieber, is a veritable brand with lots of projects in the works. She definitely has come a long way in a relatively short time from Wizards of Waverly Place! From her singing career to international concerts to acting (she just wrapped the filming of Spring Breakers) to a clothing line and beyond, Gomez has it going on. One of her latest new endeavors is her eponymous fragrance, which she surely hopes makes as scent-sational of an impact as Bieber’s Someday spritz.
The “Baby” singer’s dreamy scent took the retail world by storm with its impressive sales numbers. But, despite its success, Selena Gomez, 19, was apparently inspired by something and someone (make that two people!) besides her main guy for her new perfume, out this month. And the duo who influenced her may be a bit unexpected!
“I’ve always wanted to [enter the fragrance business] ever since Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen had their little body sprays that I was obsessed with,” Gomez admitted, as Just Jared reports. Who would have thought that those cutesy little, syrupy sweet-smelling mist dispensers from the Olsen twins would be a muse?!
Still, the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer’s scent will no doubt be a bit more sophisticated and refined, while still retaining a playful edge, especially if the ad and the bottle are any indication. For the ad, Selena Gomez strikes a pretty pose in purple that’s both sweet and sultry, given she’s soaking wet. Likewise the bottle is both glam and girly with a cluster of lips emerging from the top of it.
Gomez also revealed of her perfume, as Just Jared Jr. confirms, “I am excited to make my own fragrance that is romantic, rich and sweet. I wanted to make a fragrance that is able to make my fans feel special. I’ve been working on it for awhile, so I can make it something different. I can’t wait for eveyone to smell it.” Let the scent showdown between Gomez and Justin Bieber begin!
