Pop star Lady Gaga is riding high following her big night at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, but now it’s back to business. Gaga has something special in the works for all her little monsters– a new perfume! And while there’s speculation as to what it will smell like (please, let’s rule out meat, people!) one thing is for sure: for Gaga it will smell like money.
According to People, Gaga has signed a deal with Coty to launch her own fragrance, set to be in stores in 2012. But amidst all of the pop icon fragrances out there, what will set Gaga’s apart?
Indeed, when it comes to pop stars and fragrances Lady Gaga has plenty of company. Here are just some of the fragrances launched by pop divas over the years:
Britney Spears- Curious, Believe, Fantasy
Gwen Stefani- L.A.M.B., Harajuku Lover’s
Jennifer Lopez- Glow, Still, Miami Glow by J.Lo, Live Luxe, Sunset Glow
Christina Aguilera- Inspire, Xpose
Avril Lavigne- Black Star, Forbidden Rose
Celine Dion – Sensational
Beyonce- True Star, Heat, Diamonds
Jessica Simpson- Fancy
Mariah Carey, M, Luscious Pink, Forever, Honey
I see Gaga going the funky packaging route- something memorable that will look cool on a vanity or nightstand, like Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lover’s line. I don’t see a predictable girly, feminine pink bottle.
As for the name of Gaga’s new fragrance, there are plenty of contenders. Sure, she could go with Gaga or Lady or even Little Monsters – or something completely off the wall. With the announcement that her upcoming album will be titled “Born This Way”, perhaps even “Born” could be a name for her new fragrance.
Bottom line, this fragrance could smell like anything and Gaga’s fans will likely eat it up. Because everything this Lady touches seems to turn to sold.
