Mariah's new perfume

Saturday 18 August 2007

Is this the first scent you've ever used?
This is going to be the first fragrance that I've ever worn. I've never been a fragrance wearer and then I get to wear my own fragrance first. It's pretty cool.

What was your inspiration for the scent?
There is marshmallow in the top note. It takes me back to my childhood campfire moments. The tiare flower is the heart of the fragrance. The first time I smelled it I was in Hawaii, so it reminds me of beautiful places. And the bottom note of the fragrance is this incense I got in Morocco. I used to burn it in my house and I just love the smell.

Did it take a while to get the scent right?
Elizabeth Arden's team and I went back and forth a lot. It was very similar to writing and recording a song.

What else do you have going on?
I'm finishing up my record right now. It's my favorite music I've ever done, basically. And I'm in a movie called Tennessee - I play Krystal. The character is very different from me and I think people are going to be surprised - she's very unglamorous, very raw.
