An expert from Parfumery commented:
“Celebrities with large fanbases, such as Ariana Grande and Beyonce, are incredibly popular for bringing out merchandise and finding the best ways to connect with fans across the globe, and fragrances are one of the most connective and trendy ways to do so. Brits have been extremely supportive of celebrity perfumes which seemed to skyrocket during the mid-noughties. As scent is such an intimate and personal part of our lives, many can be picky about which fragrances to choose from, which is another reason why Brits may be more inclined to purchase one made and worn by one of their favourite celebrities.”
