Mary J. Blige proud of perfume success

Mary J. Blige "feels so good" when fans tell her they're wearing her scent.

The American songstress has enjoyed great success with her debut perfume, My Life, and has been gearing up for its follow-up, My Life Blossom, to follow in the same path.

Mary is thrilled when fans tell her they like her signature scent.

"[It happens] all the time," she told People. "They say, 'I'm wearing your fragrance, girl!' It feels so good."

Mary sold My Life on shopping channel HSN last year to great success. The 40-year-old singer hopes My Life Blossom will follow suit.

"It feels so good," she explained. "I never in a million years thought I would be on HSN selling fragrances but it's something that I love and it just feels like a great accomplishment to put your heart and soul into something to give to women."

Mary considers her fans when creating her fragrances. The star likes to combine different notes to represent the strong characteristics women have.

"I think about them the way I think about myself," she revealed. "How I like to smell. Not too strong or overbearing but still smart, sexy, feminine, edgy. I think about what women would like to wear."

Mary is considering a foray into the cosmetics world following the success of her perfumes. The star now has a taste for the beauty industry.

"I'm thinking about it," she revealed. "The fragrance business with HSN is definitely making me think about going further [into the industry]."
