One Direction now has a signature fragrance called “Our Moment.” Harry Styles has described the scent as smelling like a “summer day.” Contributing to the olfactory experience are jasmine petals, frangipani, pink grapefruit, wild berries and red currants. Their cheesy commercial features the boys interacting with all those things while a super-sweet rendition of “My Favorite Things” sung by Diana Vickers.

Lady Gaga launched her “Fame” fragrance last night, and she put on quite the performance!

The perfume itself is odd: it’s the first ever black fragrance, and it’s got blood, semen, and poison in it.

Here’s what went down:

In addition to spending time assessing talent as one of the new judges on The X Factor, poptrepreneur Britney Spears has also been working on a promotional campaign for her new dual fragrance concept, Fantasy Twist. The 30-year-old Britney was more like Cleopatney as she got in touch with her inner Egyptian princess in an elaborate, retro-styled gold and white gown. She later was flappertastic in a similarly elegant and retro (although less Egyptian) golden look.

Next time you’re in a department store, swing by the perfume section to pick up something for your cat. There’s a certain fragrance that has been proven to attract big cats, and small cats are supposedly intrigued by it too.

Next time your in a department store, swing by the perfume section to pick up something for your cat. There’s a certain fragrance that has been proven to attract big cats, and small cats are supposedly intrigued by it too.

General curator for the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo in New York Pat Thomas did an experiment in 2003 with a variety of popular perfumes to see which ones held the big cat’s attention for the longest. It’s actually an old zoo trick to spray perfume on rocks and trees to keep the animals from getting too bored, but some work much better than others. Your Cat: The Owner’s Manual author Dr. Marty Becker took this information to mean you can also spray this fragrance on say, a scratching post, or maybe a toy, to get your own kitty’s attention focused. I haven’t read the book, but he put this information out there on GMA, so we assume that he’s actually tried this on actual domesticated small kitty cats. He did write the book on cats, after all.

Soooo, what fragrance is it?
