Eau de … eat crow? Adam Levine is likely feeling a little sheepish today after pal Christina Aguilera caught him contradicting himself on Twitter.

On Wednesday, the Maroon 5 singer announced plans for his first fragrances for men and women, both called 222. According to a release, the scents will “reflect [his] personality and style” and retail for $36-$65.

However, Aguilera must have a fabulous memory or a Twitter-savvy friend: Friday she Tweeted a link back to a March 2011 Tweet of Levine’s, which read, “I also would like to put an official ban on celebrity fragrances. Punishable by death from this point forward.”

“Haha @AdamLevine,” Aguilera wrote in reply. “What a difference a year makes …”

However, her detective work wasn’t totally mean-spirited; Levine’s fellow Voice mentor, who has several scents of her own, sent him her best wishes, too, writing, “Welcome to the celebrity fragrance family!” Tell us: Would you still consider buying Levine’s fragrances?

Absolutely I would! He’s one of those rare celebrities who’s also a nice guy and good person, and I will support anything he does. We’ve all said things we regret and we’ve all changed our minds about things – why can’t he?
