Pop star, actress, clothing designer, Justin Bieber's girlfriend and now perfumer — that's right, folks, Selena Gomez is only 19, but she's already a mini mogul. In Touch was there when the lovable star debuted her namesake first fragrance, Selena Gomez, in NYC — a labor of love she dedicates to her fans, who actually participated in creating the scent! So what was it that made the teen starlet want to delve into the celeb fragrance world? "I've always wanted to ever since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had their little body sprays that I was obsessed with," explains Selena. "But my fans were really my inspiration behind it... I just had to wait for the right time because I wanted to create something that could really stand on its own."
The ever-sweet star gushed over the "yummy" bottom note, made up of "coconut, chocolate and vanilla," while the fragrance's first ad campaign — which depicts Selena (and her gorgeous Maria Lucia Hohan gown) drenched in water while her sleek bottle capped with kisses sits alongside the frame — reveals a sexier side. "It's very romantic, very sensual... but it's fun and beautiful at the same time," says Selena, adding, "I wanted it to look like I was swimming in the fragrance."
Selena Gomez, the fragrance, hits Macy's stores and macys.com this month!
