Mary J. Blige’s Sweet Smell of SuccessAugust 3rd, 2010
Hit that high note, Mary!
Like most performers Mary J. Blige has realized that side hustles are where the money’s at and she’s really got a lot of great stuff going on! She’s launching sunglasses, has helped out with a charity line and now she’s breaking records with her latest collab: a new fragrance from the Carol’s Daughter called “My Life,” a nod to her her 1994 album of the same title. Mary made HSN history over the weekend with the debut of her very first scent when she sold a record-breaking 60,000 units. Diddy previously held the HSN record for most fragrances sold with his “I Am King” scent but your girl outsold him in sales and revenue grossing an estimated $2.7 million (take that!).
The best thing about this new scent which Mary calls “a reflection of her personality” is that $1 from each sale went to benifit the R&B diva’s FAWN (Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now). The singer gushed about the scent’s success on Twitter: “Thank you so much!!!!!!! What an amazing support system!!!! You guys are the best!!!!!!… You saved so many lives and dreams tonight with your purchase!!! So many women will be getting the second chance they deserve!!! FFAWN…Thank You HSN for the love and support you showed me and my fam!!!!!! We really appreciate it!!!!!!”
I’m really feeling Mary for all the giving back she’s doing right now! Extra points because she’s also offering products that’ll keep us fresh!
Will you be trying out her new scent?
