As the spokesperson for Cover Girl’s Queen Collection of cosmetics for women of color, Queen Latifah is already beauty royalty. And the Grammy-winner has just announced that she’s expanding her empire into the world of fragrance. This fall, the rapper-singer-actress will join the ranks of celeb perfumers including Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Lopez with a new scent by Parlux Fragrances. Queen by Queen Latifah will feature notes of mandarin, jasmine, cognac, Moroccan coriander and Egyptian musk housed in a ruby-red bottle embossed with a heart. She will also star in aptly regal print ads for the eau de parfum sprays, which start at $49 for a 1.7 oz. bottle. As for what inspired her to jump into the fragrance game, the star explains, “Beauty really does start on the inside. It’s like a state of mind, a state of love, if you will. So I see a fragrance as just a natural expression of this state of love: Scent expresses a woman’s confidence and sensuality, it’s how she embraces her body, her mind and her strength.” Tell us: Will you try out Queen Latifah’s scent when it launches in August?
