Mary J. Blige’s Sweet Smell of Success

August 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?

Love Mary’s new fragrance. This will definitely become my signature fragrance, it smells that good. The little clutch that comes with this perfume is so cute nice touch Mary. Also knowing a portion of my money went to helping someone go to college is a good feeling. I will probably go back and get the shower cream and body lotion just to layer it with the perfume. Even my boyfriend like the smell of it, and he never really comments on the perfumes I wear but this one I caught him spraying in the air so he can smell it. Busted!!!! Congrats Mary and keep up the good work.
