She's designed t-shirts and watches so it only makes sense that Mary J Blige has moved on to coming out with her own fragrance.
The songstress' named her new fragrance My Life after her 1994 album, which Blige says was a major turning point in her life. She explains:
"I was crying out for help, because I was going through so much. And four million women said, ‘Mary, we’re going through it, too, but you’re helping us by calling on us.’ From that day on, I began speaking truths about my life, and about their lives, and everything around us. So it’s a special tribute to us as women. My fans and I are smart now. We know we’re smart now, but we didn’t know it then. We know we’re beautiful now, we didn’t know it then. We’re educated now, we didn’t know it then. We’re soft, we’re edgy — we’re all those things. And I wanted this perfume to represent every female’s everyday life."
The gardenia petals, Bartlett pear and white freesia scent that Mary created in partnership with beauty brand Carol's Daughter will begin selling My Life on July 31st exclusively on HSN for $46. As a bonus all purchases come with a gold clutch.
Also, for every bottle of My Life purchased, $1 will benefit the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now or FFAWN, which Blige founded.
What a great idea!
We hope the fragrance does well!
