Lots of musical artists are popping up and launching their perfumes this year! The repeat celebrity scents that keep staying at the top of the celebrity scent game are Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears. They are among the hardest working and most popular music artists in 2013 and are working hard to keep their ranking in 2014. With these new scents I had the pleasure of reviewing, I think so far so good!
Nicki Minaj: Pink Friday Deluxe Edition perfume spray - Her unforgettable and hard to miss statuesque silhouette bottle of herself represents the singer perfectly as this limited edition scent will keep you wanting more! Juicy, mysterious and alluring are the first words that come to mind when smelling this perfume. It has a sexy dark richness along with a mouth watering air of temptation. I absolutely loved this perfume and it is perfect for a night out at a club or a casual first date. Described as "The intoxicating scent of the original Pink Friday is re-interpreted as a rich and seductive perfume - the ultra-luxe floral musk is intensified, emphasizing sensuality through its exhilarating bold and sexy notes." Use with caution...a suitable scent to wear if you want male attention, hah. BUY AT: www.macys.com
Justin Bieber: THE KEY - Packaging is getting very creative with perfume now-a-days. Beiber is no exception with his GIRLFRIEND perfume but he toned it down considerably for THE KEY. A simple white, long rectangular shaped bottle that contains a gold key hooked to the side may seem more ordinary than his GIRLFRIEND bottle, but it by no means is any less awesome! Soft, powderly and youthful are the first words that come to mind when smelling this scent. This is my everyday sort of perfume that I can wear at work or at any day function or event I am going to. Described as "energetic with a sexy splash of sparkling freshness, the luminous fruity floral musk fragrance awakens the senses with a burst of juicy fruits, while the heart blooms to unveil a bright bouquet of sheer floralcy. The creamy dry down blends sensual musks and exotic precious woods with decadent notes of vanilla that will leave you dreaming for more." BUY AT:www.macys.com

A fast growing celebrity trend has been to come our with your own scent! Tons of stars have jumped on board to create their own perfume line and I gladly took the challenge to test out 8 of the most popular celebrity scents on the market.
1) Taylor Swift: Wonderstruck Enchanted - A very adorable bottle with charms that dangle on the bottle, easy to remove and make your own necklace (Yes, I am going to be doing that!). The bottle looks cute and it came in a styled box, with the lovely Taylor Swift modeling a beautiful red dress. It draws me in to pick up the box with the gorgeous design and the scent is amazing! This is the type of perfume that is typically my style because it was a deep mysterious scent that is very alluring and whimsical. Almost like deep forestry scents with hints of floral and berry undertones. This one was one of my favorites for sure! This is perfect for wearing when going out at night, but since it's my preferred type of perfume scent I just wear it anytime.
2) Justin Bieber: Girlfriend - This bottle is SO crazy...original...but crazy, hah. Once taken out of the box (which of course has a picture of the teen dream) there is this twisty, artistic outer layer which you pop the top off of and reveals a heart shaped bottle. This is for sure the most unique packaging I have encountered in the perfume world...but that makes it intriguing. The scent is unusual...not is a bad way...it's hard to explain, but I first smelled it and didn't think I would like it, then I sprayed it on and actually loved it! I have already used this word a lot in describing this perfume...but if I had one word to sum up my feelings for this perfume INTRIQUING is the word! It is a scent that can be wore day or night which is always great to have a universal perfume :)
3 & 4) Britney Spears: Fantasy Twist - I counted this as 2 perfumes...well, because it is. It is genius to have a 2-in-1 perfume that is also so well packaged! They connect together in a sphere shape and you simply separate the two by splitting the sphere with the divot found by the charm. The charm, by the way, has a little clasp that you can easily unhook from the bottle to be able to use or hook anywhere...this is also a good move because most bottles that have amazing and cute charms on the bottle are solidly attached and you have to basically rip them off just to reuse or save them. Okay, so now the scent. The pink side, Fantasy, is a great day scent. It is girly and sweet and reminds me of what sugar should smell like. There is a hint of a peppery, spicy after scent, which is the reason why I love this one. I personally do not like the sweet, girly girl, flower scents...but this one puts a twist on it which makes it likable by most types I imagine. I just assumed the lighter (pink) side was for day and the dark (purple) side for night, but I would say you can easily wear both at any time. The purple side has a very smooth, calming scent to it. It's not as dramatic as the pink side, but something very subtle in the way it presents itself. It could almost blending into your skin and be considered "your smell"...it's like a perfume secret weapon...calm and smooth like a sneak attack on your crush :) Maybe use this one with caution, hah....
