Mariah Carey: 'I Call Myself a Perfumer-in-Training'

Mariah Carey Dreams may be the superstar‘s twelfth fragrance, but she still considers herself a novice at her second-favorite profession. “I humbly call myself a ‘perfumer-in-training’ because I love it so much,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “Almost as much as I love making music!”

“The process of creating a fragrance is exhilarating and it takes me to another place within my creative self,” Carey says of her latest perfume, which is housed in a bottle shaped like a champagne flute as “a tribute to Carey’s festive nature,” according to a press release.

Dreams’ signature scents include notes of Madagascar vanilla, honeysuckle and salted caramel apple that are meant to reflect different stages of Carey’s life. “Mariah Carey Dreams helps tell my story,” Carey shares. “The different scents derive … from childhood to performing on the world’s stage, to being in love, to feeling loved.”

Want to get your hands on what Carey calls a “classic and exciting fragrance?” You can pick it up exclusively at Kohl’s stores starting in April, with prices starting at $39. And keep an eye out for Carey’s next big project: a new album, which she’s working on now.

Style Rx: Mariah's Midriff Mistake

Jan/31/2013 at 04:15 PM ET

Who: Mariah Carey

Where: Enjoying the unseasonably warm weather in N.Y.C. Wednesday

Diagnosis: All symptoms indicate that Carey has taken Throwback Thursday too literally and believes it’s 1997. Her outfit suffers from time warp hallucinations, unnecessarily bare midriff and mermaid-skirt-itis. This is a particularly serious case, believed to be more toxic than Glitter.

Prescription: Keep the awesome leather jacket and diva shades, then incinerate everything else and start from scratch. A relaxed, flattering pink A-line dress will allow her to still show a little skin in an elegant way. We’ll prescribe a healthy dose of on-trend single-sole heels to combat the diva’s longterm platform pump addiction, but unfortunately, it may be too late to save her.

Tell us: How would you cure Mariah Carey’s outfit?

Wow! Mariah Carey Stuns in Sexy Red Bikini

Touch her body? Some might want to after seeing this shot!

Mariah Carey took a break from a recent beach vacation in Australia to pose for a photo in her teeny red bikini. The American Idol judge — overseas for a series of performances Down Under — showed off her 70-lb. weight loss (check out that toned tummy!) in her swimsuit and denim miniskirt, reminding us of her oh-so-sexy “Honey” days.

After welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan in 2011, Carey joined Jenny as a spokeswoman, modifying her diet to lose her baby weight.

“The first week, I lost 40 lbs. … of just water,” Carey told Rosie O’Donnell when revealing her slimmer figure in 2011. “It was just water, initially. When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 lbs. of weight that needed to be lost.”

And though she did talk about her weight loss a fair amount at the time, Carey always said it wasn’t to flaunt her fitness — but to help motivate others. “The whole point of this is not just like: ‘Oh, hey, look at me and my weight loss, I’m fantastic,'” she said. “It’s really health.”

Carey joins a whole slew of famous women who gave us bikini envy with their beach vacations last week. See more of them — including Jennifer Aniston, Julianne Hough and Naomi Wattshere!
