Taylor Swift Matches Fragrances to Her Men

Taylor Swift Fragrance
Michael Thompson for Allure

Taylor Swift doesn’t look at old photo albums to reminisce about past romances—she dabs on a bit of perfume. “Different smells bring different relationships to mind for me,” the singer-actress tells Allure in its December issue, where she poses for a spread inspired by a ’70s Cacharel fragrance ad. Swift, who will launch her first scent next fall, says she used to keep a big tray of fragrances at her parents’ house, and when she wanted to conjure up the image of a particular guy, she’d wear the scent that reminded her of that time. “I’d put on Abercrombie 8 to remember when I was in ninth grade and had my first boyfriend, because he gave me that,” Swift explains. Then there was the scent that helped boost her popularity. “The coolest girl in school wore Britney Spears Fantasy, and I had to copy her.” On the downside, fragrances can bring back bad memories, as in the case of a certain unnamed ex who wore a particular cologne. “Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is still a difficult one for me to smell,” reveals Swift. And while she doesn’t reveal her former boyfriends’ signature scents, we can’t help but wonder which colognes some of her famous exes, including Taylor Lautner and John Mayer, wore.

I like The VIDEO and PHOTO!

I am so glad that girls like Taylor Swift are still out there, as I have a tween niece. Taylor seems very sweet and sincere, and I think she is a good role model for girls. Some of these celebrities, nowadays, are quite frankly – scary.

Isn’t it weird that such a young girl talks so much about her relationships and exes? Isn’t it even weirder that she has more than 5 by the age of 22? Or is she even younger?
I think Taylor needs to slow down with the dating or she will build a rep fast. Especially since she’s dated older guys like John Mayer and possibly Jake G.
Plus she needs to quit with this severe Marilyn Monroe make up. Taylor just needs to be a young girl.

Taylor does truly seem like a caring person for her fans, friends, and family. There are a lot of singers and actresses that just put on a show but is really as stuck up as you can get! Thank you Taylor for being real!!!!!

@BB She’ll be 21 next month.

Oh honey, you haven’t been around long enough to judge smelly men. Wait a few years.

trish on

TRUST ME.

This chick needs to TRY to talk about something, anything, else besides her exes, boys, relationships…interested in any higher learning, honey? How about a creative writing class? Your songwriting is so literal it hurts. Not poetry by any means.

Josh on

She seems like a whiny brat.

Niki on

Geez, how many relationship has this young girl been in?! She needs to chill out.

Courtney on

please dating that young is harmless unless it leads to marriage do I have to give the example of Elizabeth Taylor again she married for the first time at 18 to Conrad Nicholas Hilton Jr the heir of the hilton hotel fourtune. I agree with her scent is a wonderful way to remember good memories and it can also trigger bad ones for instance when I smell Givenchy’s Ysatis I think of my mother when I was a little girl and when it’s Elizabeth Taylor’s passion Chanel #5 or Karl Loggerfeld’s Sun Moon And Stars I think of my grandmother hopefully her scent is nice and successful as her albums have been

So sick of hearing about her ex boyfriends. Wait till one of them gets you pregnant. Makes you think they want to be with you and take care of the baby and then up and leave you heart broken. Then cry about it.
