Thank You For The Music – and the fragrance!

At the time of writing Beyoncé has no less than 9 fragrances to her name but Heat is her first and most iconic. It’s a sweet and musky scent, with top notes of peach and neroli. In spite of its name it’s actually a well loved winter scent so don’t be afraid to gift it at any time of year.
(As an added bonus watch her behind the scenes video below of the official Heat commercial)
This may surprise you: Jessica has FIFTEEN perfumes under her belt! One of our favourites and a bestseller is Jessica Simpson Fancy. Top notes of pear apricot and red berries combine with warm, caramel undertones. Great if you also like Viva La Juicy Noir or Diesel Loverdose Tattoo.
Katy’s fragrances now include the iconic Purr, Meow and Royal Revolution, but we love Killer Queen. Inspired by the Queen song and in a bottle shaped like a ruby, it’s fruity with strong scents of patchouli.
See the extended commercial here (yes it does feature The Song):
A no brainer for us, Rihanna’s scents are all amazing and best of all (in our opinion) is Reb’l Fleur. Think coconut with florals, it’s the scent of the summer and utterly delicious. Very affordable and matters not one jot if you aren’t even a Rihanna fan – we say buy it!!
Lady G’s first perfume was launched in 2012 on an unusual premise – instead of the usual pyramid structure, all ingredients were created equal to make an overall push-pull effect. The result is a mix of belladonna, orchid and honey and remains a runaway bestseller to this day.
It would be a travesty if a pop icon like Madonna didn’t her her own fragrance, happily she has 2 signature lines – Truth or Dare and Truth or Dare Naked, both massive favourites with allbeauty.com fans. Truth or Dare is aimed at women aged 35 – 45 and has top notes of neroli, gardenia and tuberose, a white floral bouquet.
We’re completely serious when we describe Britney Spears as a Perfume Powerhouse. Britney’s scent catalogue is now vast, with many fans collecting them for their fabulous bottles as much as for their fragrance. It was very hard to choose just one but Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy is such a favourite with allbeauty.com customers it had to be this. Top notes of plum and black cherry and with a strapline of “what happens to you when the clock strikes twelve” make the combination irresistible!
She may be young but Taylor Swift is regularly top of the charts when it comes to fragrance. Her latest and fourth offering, Incredible Things, is currently out of stock due to massive demand (don’t worry, it’s due back soon!). It’s not hard to see why: pink pepper and grapefruit with orchid and vanilla make this a fun, flirty combination that’s clean and floral. See Taylor talking about Incredible Things in her behind the scenes video. If you’d like an alert as soon as it comes back into stock, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
Still fairly new to the perfume world, Cheryl currently has Storm Flower and Storm Flower Noir to her name. Storm Flower is a beautiful mix of mandarin, nectarine, freesia and peach blossom making it oh-so-feminine. We’ll confess: this one’s on our desk right now, it’s ideal for work and gets the thumbs up every time we spray!
Another powerhouse of the perfume world, J-Lo continues to outsell her younger pretenders year on year. Glow is probably her signature scent and although it’s nearly 14 years old (!) it’s our top pick: fresh, sexy and clean with top notes of orange, grapefruit and citrus. It’s subtle and sophisticated and makes a fabulous gift or surprise stocking filler.
The first fragrance by the pop icon was Someday and is a very creditable fruity scent that wouldn’t be out of place on Mum’s dressing table. A stunning bottle with a cute heart-and-key clip which can be taken off and re-used, this is a very worthy scent in a collection by the Canadian star.
He’s relatively new to fragrance but with a design like this, you just have to love Pharrell’s fragrance ‘GIRL’. Actually for men and women (despite the name) it’s a fresh woody scent with neroli and lavender.
Undoubtedly a name you wouldn’t associate with fragrance, Sean ‘Diddy’ John Combs actually has a range of scents for men and women, that continue to delight new and old fans. Well worth a look, they may very well surprise you…
