Carrie Underwood: Having People Smell Like Me 'Might Weird Me Out'

Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez and (begrudgingly) Adam Levine may be into the idea of creating their own fragrances, but one star who’s not? Carrie Underwood.

“I really don’t know if I would do the whole fragrance thing,” she tells AOL’s The Boot. “I don’t want to smell like anybody else.”

More importantly, she doesn’t want anyone else smelling like her. “If people walked up to me smelling like me, it might weird me out,” she admits. “So that one’s not quite for me.”

However, the young starlet — the current face of Olay — isn’t totally opposed to putting her name on a product. When asked about creating clothing and shoes someday, the singer has a change of tune. “I would love to do that for other people,” she shares, “and create things that people would like to wear.” Perhaps we have another Jessica Simpson in our midst? Tell us: Have you ever purchased a celebrity perfume?

no one said they wanted to smell like her and no one said that a fragrance she put out had to smell like her. if that were the case, they’d be remaking what ever it is she already wears.

I love Carrie! I hate celebrities that put their name on everything from perfume to greeting cards just to make money. I am sure she could have a perfume and make a ton of money but I take it she is thinking that she would wear a perfume that she endorsed. Like others have said…I think some celebrities never even use the products they endorse. I feel like just with Olay if she endorses it; she uses it and believes in it. So she doesn’t want a perfume…nothing wrong with that and it doesn’t make her a bad person. She is a very sweet and giving person.

Someone needs to explain to Carrie that perfume smells difference on everyone and no two people smell alike due to THEIR own chemistry make up.

Lol… not to be mean to Carrie but um they don’t actually make perfumes smell like “you”. You create them at a lab with scientists and you can make it smell however you want!!!
I especially like the comment about making clothes and how she “would love to do that for people” Yeah it’s not a charity honey, you make money off of it.
Yes People… it truly looks like we have another Jessica Simpson on our hands! #BLONDEMOMENT

Maybe she doesn’t. Know but perfume that is the same smells different on every body. :) She comes off being better than you, treat everyone how you want to be treated.

uhhh, what a snob..and I always liked her, too. UM, let’s see, thousands of people wear the same perfume, whether it’s Chanel or CKONE for goodness sakes…it’s not like when you go to the mall you can smell all the girls that are wearing one given perfume

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like this little princess just needs a high five… in the face… what a chair???

vespagirl on

…* make that WITH a chair…

I am willing to bet that few or no celebrities actually wear the perfumes that are named after them, or even care to have much input in the making of the scents. Methinks it’s probably just another way to make lots of money….
