Eau, those celebrities! The sweet smell of success….

November 15, 2006

You know those times when you just really want to smell like an actress who won an Oscar for playing a female boxer? Well, help is as near as your fine fragrance counter, where you’ll find Hilary Swank’s new perfume. 

Or, if you’d rather smell like Dave Beckham or a desperate housewife, that can easily be arranged.  Celebrity scents are crowding the perfume counters at department stores this holiday season. Dozens of them have spritzed their way onto the market in recent years, and now there are more than ever. Here is our story by Rachelle Younglai:

If she had won an Oscar for playing a male boxer — then I might be interested.
