Who’s Fragrance Do You Think Will Be Hotter? Halle Berry or Jennifer Lopez?
Friday, June 4, 2010
According to today’s issue of Women’s Wear Daily, Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez are both set to launch new fragrances soon! Here’s the scoop:
‘Reveal’ by Halle Berry
Her third fragrance, Berry tells WWD that this fragrance will be more like an open book based on her experiences as a mom.
“I’m a mother now, and when you become a parent, you just look at the world differently,” she said in an interview with WWD. “[Motherhood] challenges me and makes me question myself and who I really am all the time. So for this [fragrance and campaign] to come along at this time in life just seemed kind of like it goes together. This is a part of expressing who I really am – for the good and the bad, it’s about being comfortable with myself as a woman, and sharing secret parts of myself.”
Noting that she wanted to this fragrance to be “easy, floral and wearable,” Berry even tells of going to the drug store and purchasing her previous fragrance because she loves it that much.
‘Reveal’ contains top notes of Berry’s fave flower (mimosa), peach, honeydew, melon and red berries; a heart of plumeria flower, iris blossom and neroli petals and a base of vetiver, cashmere woods and skin musk. It comes in three sizes: 0.5 oz ($17); 1 oz ($35) and 1.7 oz ($35).
Even though the fragrance hits stores August 2010, she’s currently working on a fourth fragrance and also revealed that she’s set to travel to South Africa this month and July to film a movie and will start filming the comedy “Shoe Addicts Anonymous” this fall.
‘Love and Glamour’ by Jennifer Lopez
This will be Lopez’s 16th fragrance (she’s already sold more than $1 billion worth of fragrance!) so obviously this woman knows her stuff when it comes to creating a juice that sells.
The singer/actress told WWD that she sometimes drives the fragrance creators at Coty “a little bit crazy” when it comes to creating her fragrance.
“You always want to create something signature – that’s always kind of what I’m pushing for when working with Coty,” she told WWD. “You want it to be a combination that people have never smelled before. It’s always an exciting time, because the sky’s the limit and it can go in any direction. What I always like to do is look at where I am in life at the moment. [Here] it was right after the babies and was when I was getting back to work and getting back to what I do again. It just felt like a time of a lot of love and that seemed very romantic to me – I said it seems like love and glamour. As a name, ‘Love and Glamour’ seemed like a really aspirational, fun and beautiful thing that we could work with in many, many ways.”
‘Love and Glamour’ contains top notes of Italian mandarin, guava and nectarine pulp; a heart of water lily, coconut orchid, orange flower absolute and jasmine petals, and a drydown of sandalwood, sensual musk and amber. It comes in two sizes: 1.7 oz ($49.50); 2.5 oz ($58) and a body lotion for $27.50. The fragrance will launch October 2010 at Macy’s.
Lopez also told WWD that she may finally try her hand at creating a cosmetics or skin care line because it’s “really important” to her. (I’m sure she’ll come up with a smokey eye palette to die for!) Never one to slow down, she’s making major moves with her apparel line, working on a new album and developing tree film projects. (Can we say “Super Mom?!”)
So there you have it, Glamazons. Who do you think will have the better fragrance? (My vote is for Lopez’s ‘Love and Glamour’ lol)
