Heidi Klum is launching her debut fragrance Shine, a floriental developed with Coty. "I didn't want something that was super-sweet. I wanted sensual...," she said of the perfume. "I didn't want clean. I want to smell like a woman. I wanted something that is long-lasting but not hovering."
Another star to release her first scent is country singer Taylor Swift, who introduces Wonderstruck, inspired by her "Enchanted" lyrics. The fragrance opens with notes of freesia and apple blossom and feature a heart of vanilla, honeysuckle, and white hibiscus, with a dry-down of amber, sandalwood, and peach.
Staying in the country sphere, Keith Urban is also readying his first signature scent: Phoenix for men is composed of blackberries, cognac, plum suede accord, dates, dark chocolate, fir balsam, musk, cashmere woods, tonka and "amber gourmand, which imparts a hint of leather." "The ‘what doesn't kill you makes you stronger' story of the phoenix is something that I think fits really well with a man's cologne," the singer has said of the fragrance.
