Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN) – Grammy Award-winning artist Shakira has jumped on the bandwagon of celebrities releasing their own perfume. The “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” singer has unveiled her new scent, S by Shakira.
The scent, a collaboration with Puig, has signature notes of bright jasmine and sandalwood, and is bottled in a luminous bottle that “evokes an oriental dancer.”
She was quoted by People as saying, “The type of women who feel a connection with this fragrance would be independent and strong, but also a woman with a great capacity to love and a strong sense of who they are.”
“It’s for a woman who believes in herself.”
She added, “Like one of my songs, I wanted S by Shakira to tell a story, and to be something personal and unique. A perfume has to really reflect something inside you, make you connect with it in an emotional way.”
S by Shakira will be released in stores in September, and will be priced from $17 to $35.
