Bieber May Be Magazine Poison, But He's Perfume Counter Gold. (And In Other Pop Star News, Taylor Swift Now Has a Fragrance)

While Justin Bieber may not be invited to cover magazines anymore due to poor issue sales, he doesn't need to worry about his popularity with his fan base quite yet. The Biebs' fragrance, Someday, destroyed sales records in its first month and is being called the most successful celebrity fragrance launch in history. Take that J. Lo and Beyonce! WWD reports that Someday brought in $3 million in less than three weeks (compare that to the previous best-selling launch, Beyonce's Heat, which made $3million in a month.)

Speaking of pop stars and fragrance, Taylor Swift is entering the game with her first scent, Wonderstruck. Known for her deeply personal lyrics, the name comes from her song, "Enchanted." It's a gourmand scent, so expect it to be sweet, a nod to her young fan base. Notes include freesia, greet tea, and vanilla. Elizabeth Arden is producing Wonderstruck, which will hit shelves in October.

The Wonderstruck bottle is purple (Swift's favorite color), is adorned with charms (she loves 'em), and had a hidden number 13 within the design (she thinks it's lucky). Let's see how lucky she is once sales numbers are released.
