New Celebrity Fragrance: Queen Latifah

The News: Queen Latifah is the most recent star to jump on the celebrity perfume bandwagon. She has recently signed a deal with Parlux Fragrances—the same company that distributes perfumes from Jessica Simpson, GUESS?, Maria Sharapova and others—and will release her creation in Fall of 2009.

What We Say: Wherever you look, there’s a celebrity coming out with a new fragrance. Britney Spears, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary Duff, Beyonce—even Antonio Banderas—have all released scents. We’re a big fan of the Queen’s style—she’s not afraid to show off her curves and exude class and elegance even though the media dictates that her dress size isn’t beautiful. We bet that “eau de Latifah” is going to be a warm, strong fall scent for empowered women like her. This will be her first fragrance, and hopefully there will be many to follow.

What do you think of the latest addition to the celebrity perfume trend? Any guesses on what the fragrance will be called?
