Jennifer Aniston, one of last megawatt Hollywood stars not to have her name on a fragrance, is expected to reveal shortly that she has signed a deal with the Falic Group to launch a scent, perhaps later this year.

Lawyers for Combs filed papers in Brooklyn federal court last week asking a judge to compel The Urban Glass Quarterly, based in Fort Greene, to reveal its notes about an article that suggested Comb's fashion label, Sean John, ripped off a renowned glassblowing artist.

Now Sean Combs says the Urban Glass Quarterly came up with the whole idea. Read more at Glass Warfare at the NY Post.
Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds fragrance is the best-selling celebrity perfume of all time, according to a research company.
The fragrance recorded US sales of $67 million in 2008, followed by Unforgivable, a scent endorsed by Sean Diddy Combs, which racked up $48.5 million.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs on HSN, hawking his wares. It's rather long. Skip to the :32 second mark if you don't want to see the I Am King commercial again, and then to the 6:30 mark if you want to hear about his upcoming fragrance for women, tentatively called Empress. I admit I ran out of steam at around 11 minutes; if you watch past that and anything fabulous happens, do comment.
According to Cosmetic News, "The show recorded net sales of $500,000 of Sean John fragrance products in less than an hour" and "HSN cancelled additional slots scheduled for November 30 and December 1 because all the products had sold out".
