It used to sell better, but it still sells. It is respected by perfume critics - some of it smells legit good. It's priced reasonably low, on par with Britney Spears (also respected by critics), but not bargain basement - Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera - is a step down in price and respect. Though Perry has a one or two that really are OK. I would guess as the star fades, the lines don't sell. I don't think J Lo still moves a lot, but she used to!!!

Honorine Blanc at Firmenich did Siren in the 2009, one of Paris Hilton best sellers. So that's not a joke.

Fragrance does NOT have to be expensive to be well done. Jennifer Lopez's Glow was created by two very respected noses and was considered excellent. It has been reformulated and ruined.

There can be good fragrances in a drug store. Depends on the drug store, of course.

Adam Levine for Women is very well respected and smells great. It's unisex, too. It cost under 10 bucks.

Shawn Mendes fragrances are terrible. Terrible smell, terrible quality, and not even dirt cheap.

IF she's worth hundreds of millions of dollars, why the fuck would that nitwit Meghqn keep pigeonholing her as a bimbo on her podcast? I don't think Paris is Rhodes scholar material but she knows how to create an identity and hire the right people to build a brand around it.

Billy Eilish had her big release and it kind of flopped. Ariana Grande fragrances are HIGHLY respected, they smell great, they are not cheap, and she is making untold millions. Cloud has been a huge success.

Honorine Blanc is also the house nose for Avon, just sayin...

Madonna's Truth or Dare is considered an excellent gardenia. Discontinued, it is highly prized and fetches 200+ a bottle. It is good. But you can get a new bottle of Fracas for half the price.

I don't know why Madonna gave up doing perfume because her launches were so well done.

Billie Eilish looks like she smells… like shit. Who thought a fragrance from her was a good idea?

by Anonymousreply 21November 20, 2022 12:04 AM

Avon partnered with Deneuve in 1986 for her luxury fragrance, Deneuve. It flopped because it was priced to high to be associated with Avon and was complicated to buy. It's excellent French perfumery, and I have a bottle. That was a mistake by Deneuve.

Well Billy was a huge corporate push so they threw whatever they could of her at the wall to see what might stick. Not much.

She should have done partnerships with Zara or H&M, clothes, sneakers, shitty jewelry.

What are the great fragrance bargains?

by Anonymousreply 26November 20, 2022 12:23 AM

you smell it. People who are faithful to their favorite perfumes can tell when they change. And they will report that publicly as well.

All réformations are not bad. Most are.

in the past 3 years, there is continued progress on the synthetics, so the shitty replacements molecules of 8-15 years ago can be swapped out for better synthetics. musks, civet, oakmoss - the list is loooong. so some perfumes have recently improved, IF THE HOUSE cares to do it.

Guerlain recently improved their classics, from the versions of 10 years ago. Of course they can't go back to the glories of the 20th century.

She didn't.

Two years ago she released Madame X--but it was a flop, just like the tour.

What a boring looking bottle R28. Surprised she approved that

by Anonymousreply 29November 20, 2022 12:30 AM

Bargains? what is a bargain for you? A 150 dollar perfume for 50? A 80 dollar perfume for 30? Or do you mean fragrances that are good and always very inexpensive? Is 10 dollars your limit? or 20? Or 30?

I was online in European shops and Guerlain is dumping 150ml bottles of classic Vetiver and Habit Rouge for 60-70 bucks, far cheaper than High Street prices for 100 ml. That's a bargain.

Denim Original for men, Gloria Vanderbilt for women, are routinely under 10 bucks for 100ml. They smell great. They are not contemporary, however.

If you haunt online fragrance discounters you'll see bargains every month. Each of the three Encre Noir for 15 bucks. Dunhill Icon was 20 bucks a bottle for a month, then went back up to 60, which is discounted. I think it has been discontinued. A big success right now is Missoni Wave, kind of a clone of Channel Allure Sport and some "blue" designers. Bottles were inexplicably 20 bucks for a month. This summer Acqua di Parma Colonia, one of the classics and it still smells great, 100 ml bottles were inexplicably 40 bucks.

Eau de Gaga Lady Gaga came and went. They were dumping remaining bottles for 10 bucks. Smell great, but doesn't last. Is that an issue? Because Chanel has destroyed longevity on some of its classics. Several luxury designers have destroyed longevity. You might as well by less expensive perfumes if you have limited budget.

There are people who pay money for perfume that a skank like Paris Hilton puts out?

by Anonymousreply 32November 20, 2022 2:25 AM

One thing I like about Paris aesthetically is that she's stuck to her brand and her look. She hasn't gone in with heavy browed instawhore makeup, fat injections and boob jobs, streetwear and all that. She's a skinny bleach-blond scene-queen, and that's where she'll always be. She just stays in her lane, and what works for her and her audience.

A lot of Asians clearly have no self-respect. They're the ones buying this racist cunt's garbage because they're obsessed with western standards of beauty.

At least she owns her own line and controls the output.

Most other A-listers have to shill for an existing house or brand, like puppets.

Paris realized awhile back that her audience in the US is now non-existent. She began focusing exclusively on Asia, the Middle East (including Dubai, of course). All the fragrance promotions feature her long, blonde hair...a feature someone above mentioned as a huge selling point to her foreign customers. She promotes the hell out of them and does personal appearances for each launch. It's all smoke and mirrors, but it works.

Many celebs have tried their hand at fragrance lines, and most fail. You have to promote them. Dame Liz was a pro at this as well, even stooping to appear on a whole night of CBS sitcoms to promote her Black Pearls fragrance.
