Why? Well, for one thing it’s genderless. According to Page Six, the 73-year-old songstress said in a press release that it’s “for people who love perfume and want to smell good and for people who feel that it’s part of who they are.”
Working with ScentBeauty to develop the product, the notes will include bergamot, neroli, jasmine, vetiver and vanilla. The last aroma was chosen because it’s one of the Grammy Award-winning artists favorites. “I like vanilla. It’s very touchy-feely. It makes you want to hold yourself.”
This has been a passion project for the legend. “It is a labor of love and I am especially happy to announce this the day after my birthday. This too is a milestone in my career as an artist,” she said in the statement. “It completely expresses who I am, and I wear it every day. I know there are people who don’t want to have anything on them, but I cannot even go to that place.”
There is no official date, but according to ScentBeauty it will be available some time in the late fall on scentbeauty.com and other e-retailers.
