We love Miu Miu for its flirty, feminine aesthetic that comes down the runway, along with the bevy of gorgeous beauty looks. So it was only a matter of time before the brand took its first steps into the beauty industry, and what better way to do that than with a fragrance line? Coty International has just announced that it will team up with Prada Group to release Miu Miu's first ever perfume. "Miu Miu is one of the most refined and respected luxury houses in the world and one of the fastest growing brands in the whole fashion industry," said Michele Scannavini, CEO of Coty Inc. "It is an exciting opportunity for Coty to build a worldwide fragrance business for Miu Miu." While no mention has been made as to what the line will look like (or, for that matter, smell like), it does have a 2015 release date. So Miu Miu fans of the world will just have to wait for what is sure to be a must-have scent.
Rihanna just can't seem to shake the beauty business! The singer is geared up to release a new women's fragrance this month.

Burberry Brit is taking a step outside its usual comfort zone with the release of its latest men's fragrance: Brit Rhythm.

Riding on the coattails of his highly anticipated makeup line, Marc Jacobs Beauty, which launches today, Marc Jacobs is taking yet another bold step into the cosmetics industry: the opening of his first store, dedicated entirely to beauty. Located at 385 Bleeker Street in Manhattan, the street where the other stores in Jacobs's mini empire are located, the beauty hub boasts all of the pieces from his makeup collection. Also available in-store will be Jacobs's collection of perfumes.
While this is the first beauty-centric store for Jacobs, Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs International and the designer’s longtime business partner, doesn't rule out the possibility of more. "It depends on how it does," he told WWD. Duffy also hinted at the possibility of Jacobs expanding into other products, like furniture and jewelry. Aside from this new addition to Bleeker Street, Jacobs's beauty line is also available in a bevy of Sephora's brick-and-mortar stores starting today.

Katy Perry is a seasoned pro when it comes to creating fragrances, which is part of the reason why her third foray into the perfume world wasn't too tricky. The other reason? "This is how I view my career: not as a ticking bomb," she told WWD. "A lot of people make choices [based on thinking] they won't have a career in five years . . . I'm not making choices — in any capacity of my life — out of fear."
It's with this no-holds-barred outlook that she will release Killer Queen into the world in August. The perfume, which was named after the song by Queen's Freddie Mercury, represents the kind of woman Katy strives to be in her personal life. "Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be," she said. "She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in."
Notes of wild berry, red velvet flower, natural jasmine sambac, and liquid praline are encapsulated in a jewel-shaped bottle, which was inspired by a queen's scepter, and will be available in four sizes. The scent is the embodiment of where Katy feels she is in her life right now, and she hopes these feelings can inspire other women in the same way. "It's for someone sophisticated, who wants a little edge and can wear it all day, and still wants that sexiness." Which, at the end of the day, is what most women want to be, isn't it?
Summer is the perfect time for a Sicilian getaway, but even if you don't make it overseas, Nest Fragrances' newest scent is the next best thing. The Sicilian Tangerine Classic Candle ($34) is a brand-new fragrance to join the brand's Core Collection.

It's just the right blend to fill the hot Summer air with something fun and refreshing. Whether you're hosting a Summer bash or just want to transport to an island state of mind, strike a match, and you'll be there.
The world of designer fragrance is once again expanding with the announcement that Alexander McQueen will release a men's and women's fragrance, developed by Procter & Gamble. "We believe it's probably the most prominent brand that is not yet playing in the luxury beauty market," P&G Prestige vice president Luigi Feola told WWD. "Alexander McQueen brings a unique perspective to the P&G Prestige portfolio. It is a tremendous privilege to partner with Alexander McQueen and to bring this incredible brand to beauty." The project is currently in development.
While this is the first fragrance deal for Alexander McQueen as a brand, the label's late founder, Lee Alexander McQueen, had already taken the first steps into the perfume world. He released Kingdom through YSL Beauté in 2003, as well as the My Queen scent in 2005. When YSL Beauté was taken over by L'Oréal, however, McQueen's fragrances didn't make the cut and have since been discontinued, leaving a hole in the fragrance market that only this iconic brand can fill.
McQueen passed away in 2010, and Sarah Burton took over as creative director. She is expected to "play a significant role" in the fragrance development, according to Feola. "Creating a fragrance feels like a natural progression as it enhances the world of Alexander McQueen," Burton said in a statement. "I am confident that this will be an exciting and successful collaboration." No release date has been set.
