    Ballot is available.

    Your choice of middle notes are crappy jasmine or even crappier freesia.

    Seriously.

    It is funny how the ad campaign is already shoot even though they don´t even have the perfume, which is weird considering that they don´t know "yet" the perfume notes. Anyway, I bet it will be a crappy atomic sugar bomb with as many artificial fruits as possible in it.

To top it all off, the "campaign imagery" (which looks idiotic) has already been shot, so who cares if it jibes with the actual end product (the perfume) right? Are you kidding me? This is the most overt (and lazy) example of celebrity commercialization involving perfume that I have ever encountered. What an insult, and how very pathetic. Ultimately, I predict that the perfume will largely be composed as follows: Orange, peach, pear, berries, rose, gardenia, jasmine, vanilla, caramel, musk, and amber (with a strong chance of trendy tropical notes like lychee, guava, and coconut).

    Totally AGREE!!

    I'm not sure we need to get so worked up. This is Selena Gomez. She is making this for tweens. Is anyone expecting anything better?

    There's still plenty of room or good perfume, isn't there? I don't see how bad art should prevent good stuff from being made.

    Absolutely true. I'm from Iceland and have been fragrance shopping here in Reykjavik for the holidays and perfumeries don't even carry this garbage. No Usher, no Justin Bieber, and no other celebrity-aggrandized corporate and unimaginative garbage. I doubt Selena Gomez's fragrance will even see the shelves here; none of this other crap does. It's called taste: something America is in desperate need of. I'm 19 years old, and my 15 year old cousins here laugh in the face of the desperation of American kids' willingness to pray to the altar of these generally unartistic and sensationalist "tween regimes." From a sane outsiders perspective, it's downright hilarious, and somewhat sad. These franchises have done enough to ruin music and television… there's really no need for them to ruin perfumery. Leave it to the professionals and artists.

    Thanks for the passioned reply mnaonbn. You have good points. I suppose it's like that in every art, however.

    In an ideal world, good work would be rewarded and the bad stuff not, but we all know, sadly, marketing plays a big role.

    All the same, wouldn't it be hilarious if a fragrance by the likes of Selena Gomez or Paris Hilton was some unintentional gem?

    I have some notes suggestions, I think a large dose of "cheese," "cocaine" and "used condom" notes would be a propos especially given her invariable Lindsey Lohan/Britney future...

    I don't see why you guys are so uptight! Who knows, maybe it will be good. It seems a little unfair to judge her! And I actually kind of like this girl. She just seems different than most child stars.:vrolijk_26:

    I cringe to think this is how most of the world views Americans when it comes to fragrance. :embarassed:
