American Idol season six winner, Jordin Sparks, is launching into a new business venture.Â She will be launching her very own perfume fragrance!Sparks will follow fellow pop singers such as new idol judge, Jennifer Lopez, as well as Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Paris Hilton, and Katy Perry with her scent.Â The perfume will be named “Because of You.”Â Sparks has not commented on whether the title is a homage to original American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, or just a coincidence.Â One of Clarkson’s hits from her smash album, Breakaway , was “Because of You.”
Her perfume has been described as a “fruity oriental perfume,” with hints of orange, orchid, sheer musks and vanilla bean.
Sparks told WWD, “When I was starting this project, I really wanted it to be affordable.Â I looked at some other celebrity fragrances, and they were like $80.Â Even now, I look at a fragrance that’s $80, and I can’t bring myself to spend that much.”Â Fans of Sparks will be happy to know that she holds true to her word and the perfume will be very affordable.Â Sparks’ perfume will hit the shelves this week, exclusively at Dots.Â A 2.5 oz bottle will cost $9.50.Â The perfume will then be sold worldwide for $14.95 on November 1.
Just in time for the holidays, fans can treat themselves and others to a gift personally created by their favorite singer.Â Perhaps this new scent will be one of many future beauty products for Sparks and her fans!
