Gwen Stefani signs a deal with Coty

"Breaking News" from WWD Beauty! Everytime I see this kind of alert in my inbox my heart jumps a little in expectation of somethings exciting. Often the news are about some CEO being appointed or resigning. Today, however, it is actually worth mentioning. Gwen Stefani has signed a global licensing deal with Coty to develop and market a line of fragrances for her fashion and accessories brand, L.A.M.B. For complete coverage see tomorrow's issue of WWD. (From I have my hopes moderately high for Stefani's scent. Like her fashion style, it might not be my kind of thing, but it might actually be interesting.

It might be interesting... she's one of the few celebs who it actually makes a bit of sense to have a fragrance out.

I'm secretly hoping for a Rob Zombie fragrance... who wouldn't want to wear something called "5,000 Fingers of Dead" or "Devil's Wing" or something like that? Heh. And I'm only half kidding about that.

I am wondering about the made by Blog project.

You are a sociologist, right?

Do you plan write anything about the project in the light of nettwork of blogs and perhaps the theory of social capital?

When the project is over, I'd be happy to write an acoutn of it...but not any sort of serious sociological analysis :-)

katiedid's comment just made me bust up laughing! It really would be interesting to see a scent from Rob Zombie but I have much less expectations from Gwen.I'm afraid so many celebs have made out like bandits turning out mundane, copy cat perfumes, that she'll feel obliged to follow suit.I always remain hopeful that I'll be surprised though.

I kind of expected something interesting, slightly off-beat from SJP...but it was exactly what she caled it, lovely :-) So maybe there won't be any mindblowing originality in GS's scent either, we'll see.

L.A.M.B. Fragrance is pretty standard and unremarkable.
I think it's a little sweet and heavy and it was pretty overpowering when I sampled it. I don't like it, but I'm sure it will appeal to plenty of people.
I really like the l.a.m.b. line of bags/shoes/clothes, but I wouldn't buy this fragrance.
