Selena Gomez Dishes on Her 'Intoxicating' Fragrance

While visiting New York City this week, Selena Gomez gave 10 of her biggest fans a treat: the chance to help her put the finishing touches on her upcoming perfume.

“I was nervous,” she told PEOPLE Monday. “I relate a lot to my fans. Whenever I do concerts, shows, meet and greets, I see these people. They’re my age, or younger or a little older, and we’re all going through the same thing.”

Luckily, she had nothing to be nervous about; Gomez hit it off with her admirers, and added the final notes to her fragrance (due out this May). “They picked out something I’m really excited about and really proud of,” she revealed.

Gomez said she was very hands-on throughout the process, picking the initial notes, designing the bottle (shaped like a gown with balloons on top) and advising on the campaign (which features her floating in water). “It’s been a long process,” she admitted. “But it’s been really fun.”

The scent features hints of raspberry, chocolate and vanilla, so “it’s really strong and also very feminine,” Gomez said. “I’m in a place right now where I love intoxicating feelings … you just can’t get enough of it, you want more.”

When she needed advice, Gomez did call on two famous friends for help: Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who both released scents last year. “It’s nice to say, ‘I’m so confused, what should I do?'” she said. “They’ve helped me, told me what they did. I did it a little differently than them, but it was good. I can’t wait for people to smell it.”
