Queen Latifah doesn't consider fragrance an easy choice, saying in the press release, "Beauty really does start on the inside. It's like a state of mind, a state of love if you will. So I see fragrance as just a natural expression of this state of love: scent expresses a woman's confidence and sensuality, it's how she embraces her body, her mind and her strength."
The fragrance, aptly named "Queen," is full and warm (like our the curvaceous red carpet favorite herself!). It's described as "reminiscent of aged Tequila," containing citrus notes of Italian bergamot and Mediterranean mandarin.
Additionally, the rare Baie rose joins jasmine noir, while cognac meets Moroccan coriander. Base notes give the perfume even more power with Indonesian patchouli and sandalwood as well as vanilla and Tonka Absolute. The finish brings you Egyptian incense and musk.
You can't smell like Queen Latifah just yet, though -- Queen by Queen Latifah, which will sell for $49 for 1.7 oz. and $59 for 3.4 oz, won't debut until this fall.
