It seems like every other celebrity has a scent these days, from Britney to Jessica to Halle. And though marketing agencies spend a lot of money promoting these products, the only really important thing is the scent. Team Bella tested out eight recently released celebrity scents, and we've got the lowdown on how each of them fared. Click through and see if you actually might want to smell like a star.
Kate Moss has been at the center of the modeling world for 20 years, and we've seen her as the face of all sorts of brands, from the prestigious Gucci, Dior, and Louis Vuitton down to drugstore favorite, Rimmel. Recently, the supermodel, who admits she's "not traditionally a beauty" to WWD, has just launched Vintage ($23-$53), a fruity floriental inspired by her love of vintage fashions.
But as you might know, this isn't the first scent we've seen from Kate. Her debut fragrance, Kate, was introduced in 2007. Then came Velvet Hour, followed by the limited-edition Kate Summer Time; and she's not about to stop now. In fact, Kate also has plans to create special makeup collections for Rimmel, and a haircare line with stylist James Brown is in the works. "It’s fun for me," Moss told WWD. "I still model, and I enjoy doing that as well. Working on the creative process is really interesting for me because I do know what I like, so it’s fun for me to realize that it becomes part of you. It’s not just putting your name on something; it’s about being very involved in it." What do you think about more Kate Moss beauty lines? Are you intrigued or apathetic?
On the heels of the announcement that she's the face of YSL's new Parisienne scent, comes news from WWD that Kate Moss is also launching another scent in her own fragrance line, this one called Vintage, next month. I know that the inimitable Miss Moss is probably capable of being the face of every single ad campaign out there, especially since in some years she basically is, but isn't it a bit of a conflict for her to be repping her own perfume and someone else's at the same time? And how will she handle two simultaneous fragrance launches? Perhaps with a bottle in each hand?
Such a busy lady, that Kate Moss. Less than a week ago, she announced her forthcoming hair care line, and now the ad for her signature fragrance is out. It's a little darker than what you might expect, so I'm excited to know what you think. Have a look:

The launch party gave us some insight into Kate the fragrance, but today WWD reports more details and previews the ad campaign. The scent is a floral musk, with top notes of orange blossom absolute, forget-me-not and pink pepper. The scent's heart notes are lily of the valley, heliotrope, magnolia, peony, and rose petal. Base notes include sandalwood, musk, vetiver, ambret seeds and patchouli—something that doesn't surprise me, considering Kate's penchant for slumming it at outdoor rock festivals.
"When I put it on I want to feel fresh and light and as the day goes on I want to feel sexier," Kate told WWD. But if you, too, want to put it on, you'll have to head to Europe or Asia this September; Americans won't get a chance to buy it until a year later.
Rumor also has it that Miss Moss is collaborating on a hair care line with stylist friend James Brown. (That's exciting, but not half as exciting as it would be if Kate had done so with the late, great godfather of soul.) Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing the first reviews of Kate's fragrance. Then again, considering her popularity, it could smell like Pete Doherty and it would still make millions.
