Mariah Carey to release new perfume Dreams
Pop star Mariah Carey has unveiled her latest scent, Dreams. 

With eighteen number one hits and over 200 million records sold around the world, Mariah Carey is one of the music world’s most bankable stars. Her latest scent is a floral fragrance that the Mariah Carey team say is “symbolic of Mariah’s lifelong journey.”

The scent opens with salted caramel apple and star anise, bergamot and almonds, followed by a heart composed of honeysuckle, freesia and lily of the valley, while the base is built up from patchouli, tonka bean and vanilla. 

“The process of developing a fragrance is exhilarating and it takes me to another place within my creative self, which is why I enjoyed creating Mariah Carey Dreams. I humbly call myself a ‘perfumer in training’ because I love it so much — almost as much as I love making music. I have the utmost respect for the perfumers because they have the ability to combine a few simple scents into a classic and exciting fragrance,” said Carey.

The curvaceous bottle, designed to bring to mind a champagne flute, is decorated with delicate butterflies on the cap. The eau de parfum is available in two sizes: 50 ml (US$49) and 30 ml (US$39). Mariah Carey Dreams retails exclusively online at Kohl’s and will go on sale from next month in Kohl’s stores. 

Mariah’s last fragrance, 2009’s Forever, was developed with celebrated French perfumier Olivier Gillotin (the nose behind Z Zegna, 10 Corso Como and Beyoncé’s Heat).

Carey isn’t the only “American Idol” judge with a nose for scent. Last week fellow diva Nicki Minaj revealed new packaging designs for her Pink Friday fragrance featuring her unique style. – AFP RELAXNEWS
