Eva Longoria Parker To Launch Her Own Signature Scent

12/22/2009 at 12:15 PM ET

Sara De Boer/Startraks

Eva Longoria Parker literally couldn’t stand wearing other peoples’ fragrances, so the actress and L’Oréal spokesperson took matters into her own hands, coming up with her just-announced trademark scent, Eva by Eva Longoria: “I have always been somewhat allergic to all perfumes and really wanted to create something that every woman could wear,” she says. “So I decided to create my own fragrance that is light, fresh and unique. I think the scent of a woman is extremely sexy and this scent will prove that.” According to WWD, the Desperate Housewives star was heavily involved in the evolution of her new aroma, rejecting many potential combinations before settling on one that incorporates citrus, violet, freesia and sandalwood notes. “I never knew how complicated it was to create a unique scent that hasn’t already been done,” said Longoria Parker. “But I enjoyed the process.” The perfume, housed in a curvy bottle meant to mimic the contours of a woman’s body, will debut in more than 1,000 stores worldwide in April, retailing for $45-$58. Expect more to follow, as the manufacturer has already announced plans to roll out additional fragrances bearing Eva’s name. For more on her perfume launch, see wwd.com.

Not interested — enough with these celebrities coming out with different scents..give me a break!
I am 100% a Chanel girl.

Jenna on

Wow, how exciting. A celebrity is coming out with their own scent, which they will describe as “fresh” and “new.” Ground breaking.

Maya on

I’m really escited for it to come out! And I’m only 11 years old but still I lov eva longoria on her show so I bet I”ll love her new scent coming out I can’t wait! And I lov her acting! I’m going to try to get it!

mary on

Enough with the celebrity scent’s already..
They all want one.
I love my Estee Lauder !!and won’t change.

DIANA on

latina scent you go girl.

Sarah on

Why do they think the bottle will help sell the perfume? I don’t care about the bottle. And I also don’t care about what Eva Longoria likes to smell like. Give me a break. Keep your over priced perfume. I’m sure it will be at Marshalls a month after it launches anyway.

Vivian on

Me too, only Chanel. All of these scents by the celebrities are too flowery, hate that.

Dawn on

Uncle! Enough, please! Nope, not interested, won’t buy, never have, not a one. I don’t think I’ve even picked one up and smelled it. Please stop already!

Nancy Coleman on

I refuse to give these overpaid “celebrities” a cent for their very decent way and life-changing charity of creating a perfume and clothes line.

What happened to celebrities endorsing the real fragrance companies rather then trying to make a buck on their own scent? I’m really tired of the over exposure of celebrities. How original … what is she? The 10th celebrity this year to announce a new ground breaking original scent? haha I have a fragrance, thank you. Stop trying to sell me a name.

Elda on

I want my own scent too!!! he he!! this is really becoming a joke!!

Sheila on

Enough already!!

[...] Would you buys Eva Longoria's perfume? [...]

fancypants on

it really is becoming a joke that all these celebs are creating fragrances. especially when they say “it’s always been my dream to create my own fragrance”. no it hasn’t. you’re creating a fragrance b/c every other celeb has done so and you want more money.

Kathy on

Not particularly, but thanks for asking.

Jayne on

She should call it ‘Cheapo’ or ‘Stinko’ to match her personality. That girl would endorse garbage as long as it came with a paycheck. Go away.

Rachel on

Give me a scent that smells like tamales and tortillas and I will be satisified.

Reagan on

I think Eva is beautiful and talented. I just have to agree with everyone else, do we REALLY need more fragrance options or clothing lines? Eva, sponsor a charity that we can ALL get behind!

Sophie on

Give me a break with these celebrity fragrances ! There is only one Estee Lauder.

Jennifer on

How is her scent going to be any different from the hundreds of other scents by celebs??? I mean really! The celebrity perfume/cologne market is already oversaturated.

She refuses to wear other celebs scents only because she wants one herself! She was wearing SOMEBODY’s perfume before she concocted her own, hypocritical b****!

Lilly V. on

ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!! We’re all sick and tired of celebrity fragrances. Ladies, just stick with Estee Lauder, Lancome, etc… – you really can’t go wrong with the French classics, and there are some great Italian perfumes as well.

Ricardo on

Odd…she comes out with this fu fu water after she marries a sweaty, running athlete. Is she trying to tell him something?

sweet on

whatever HATERS!!! if you don’t want to buy the perfume, EVA won’t care!! it’s a signature perfume people for pete’s sake!!!!! back off haters!! i think this perfume will sell and yall can’t do about it!

Samantha on

I’m amazed that we’re all on the same page. Celebrity fragrances are so overrated. They need to STOP!! Like other people mentioned, back a charity or make a difference in the world instead of creating a fragrance. There are MILLIONS of fragrances by celebs out there. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

Mary on

Normally, I’m weary of celebrity fragrances, but the one thing that is getting my attention here is that Eva is allergic to many fragrances. I’m in the same boat as her, because most perfumes just give me a headache. There are actually very few perfumes that I can stand–the only perfume I wear on a daily basis is Fresh Sugar Lychee, which is light and sweet. If Eva’s perfume can pass my headache test, I might pick it up!

Jennifer on

I actually smelled this in Glamour magazine yesterday and I think it smells great. I do agree that 99% of celebrity scents stink but I may actually buy this one!

I would NEVER do a celebrity scent and I was flipping through my Vogue and kept saying what smells so good? I tossed the heavy standard perfume cards and found it was “Eva”.I was telling my son that if someone asked I would say I cannot tell what I am wearing (embarrased it was a celebrity scnet) but among celebrity scents and even some traditional, Eva smells amazing. Now if they would just tell where to buy it!

toogie on

i smelled this in a sample from a magazine and LOVED it. Has a honeysuckle type smell, very springy.

steph on

I appreciate her drive. You go girl! These “high paid” celebrities have worked hard to get what they want. The only difference between you and them is that they. Are more successful!

aceball on

Don’t bother. Can’t find it anywhere. Did they do the launch already? I called all of the large department stores NO One has it. If anyone knows where I can buy it please let me know.
