Ever wondered what Gerard Butler smells like? (C’mon, you know you have!) Well, wonder no more: We’ve got the scent straight from the man himself, and take it from us, it’s pretty amazing.
Jessica Simpson‘s latest fragrance ads are sexy, of course, but there’s a deeper meaning behind her ethereal look. The designer made sure each detail of the new campaign was symbolic of what the scent means to her before shooting the sunlit ads — and now she’s sharing an intimate look at the unfinished photos.
Her large feather earrings echo the feather detail on the bottle, and she carried that theme throughout the ads, selecting a white plume-covered Oscar de la Renta design for the shoot. “Feathers can represent a spiritual evolution,” she tells PEOPLE. “I know I have evolved into the woman who I am today. Fragrance plays a strong role throughout a woman’s life and when we recognize a distinctive smell we can be instantly transported to another time or place.”

Nicki Minaj is having a banner year: She’s got a top ten single in “Pills N Potions,” plus a new album The Pink Print, on the way. She just nabbed another BET award and a landed plum role in The Other Woman opposite Cameron Diaz. And then there’s that third fragrance, Minajesty Exotic Edition, that she’s releasing July 11 during her first appearance on HSN.
With so much going on in her life, we had to ask a couple questions ahead of her HSN stint (which she’s “super excited” for). Find out what keeps her entertained in her spare time, how she cares for her skin behind closed doors and more below.

Joining Spears’s seven other Fantasy fragrances, “Fantasy Stage Edition” is designed to represent the star’s “legendary stage presence,” according to a release. Thus, the snakeskin-clad bottle (a nod to her “Slave 4 U” python-draped performance) and jewel-toned accents (inspired by her bright stage makeup).
Last year, a UK paper reported that a Spears fragrance is sold every 15 seconds — including such memorable Spears scent moments as her 10th anniversary bottle and her dual-hair-color “Naughty” and “Nice” Fantasy perfumes.
So what sets this latest fragrance apart? In the singer’s own words, exclusively to PEOPLE: “‘Fantasy Stage Edition’ represents my daring moments on stage, both past and present. I hope it motivates my fans to be fearless.” There you have it.
Stay tuned for an opportunity to win three bottles of Spears’s latest scent (details coming soon!). Can’t wait? You can pick up your own bottle at Kohl’s starting this month. And in the meantime, tell us: Are you excited to try this new perfume? Which of Brit’s 15 previous fragrances is your fave?
