Billie Eilish set to launch her debut signature fragrance ‘Eilish’

Billie Eilish announced her debut fragrance scent will be called Eilish. The warm, vanilla-based perfume will arrive in November of this year and will only be sold via the newly launched Billie Eilish Fragrances website. The fragrance is packaged in a gold, statuesque bottle molded to the shape of a bust.

The 19-year-old pop Eilish told Vogue in a recent interview about the venture:  “Perfumes have been one of my greatest joys in life, and I’ve always wanted to make one. And not as Billie Eilish, not as an artist, not as a singer; I wanted to make a perfume to have a perfume. It has nothing to do with me, I’m just branding it so that people see it.” Eilish also said to Vogue that she was attracted to vanilla largely because of childhood memories she has of her mother baking with the ingredient. The result was a fragrance with warm notes of musk and amber that created an edible-like smell.

Eilish said that the perfume be both vegan and cruelty-free as well as created with clean ingredients to reflect her own individual values in product manufacturing and consumption.

The Weeknd delays his 2022 World Tour to next summer

The Weeknd is pushing back the start of his 2022 world tour to next summer and moving the events from arenas to stadiums. In a statement, the Weeknd said, “Due to constraints of arenas and the demand for more shows I want to do something bigger and special for you which requires stadiums. Ticket holders will be refunded automatically, and they’ll also get priority to buy tickets for the new shows when they’re announced. Dates will be announced soon.”

Earlier this month, The Weeknd confirmed that his new album is nearly “complete” and is only missing one key component that will make it totally finished, sharing in an interview: “Only thing missing is a couple characters that are key to the narrative. Some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child, and some that inspire me now. More to come in the following months.”

In August, the singer released his latest single “Take My Breath,” which was co-written and co-produced by Max Martin.
