Ariana Grande unveils playful perfume

Ariana Grande never dreamed she'd have her own perfume line, having loved fragrances for so long.

Ariana Grande’s latest perfume is a little more young and “playful” than her debut.

The popstar released her first scent, Ari by Ariana Grande, in 2015 and is now back in the fragrance market her second offering, Sweet Like Candy. It’s already become a hit with fans, encased in a round baby pink geometric bottle with a pompom attached, which has a special meaning for the singer.

“This one is a little bit younger and more playful, but, at the same time, it still has the sexy undertones that Ari has,” she told WWD. “I’m a Floridian, so I would go to Disney almost every weekend with my family and going on the ride inside the EPCOT ball was a huge part of my childhood. This (shape) is familiar to me.”

Sweet Like Candy is a fruity fragrance, with top notes of blackberry and pear, middle notes including jasmine and honeysuckle and bottom notes boasting vanilla and marshmallow.

As for the pompom, Ariana liked that it resembled a bunny tail and contrasts against the jagged glass of the perfume bottle, explaining she’s always enjoyed pairing edgy pieces with feminine things.

The Dangerous Woman singer has an array of ventures to her name, including a Viva Glam lipstick with MAC and a clothing line with Lipsy. However, dipping her toes into perfume is still the most exciting of them all for the 23-year-old.

“I’m a musician and this is so foreign to me, but working with Luxe (license partner) has helped me grow so much in a world that I didn’t even know I would want to be a part of necessarily. I have always loved perfume, but I never thought I’d have my own line,” she smiled. “My ambitions are to make my fans happy with the products I put out, and keep reinventing the fragrances and putting new spins on the classic Ari bottle and coming up with yummy smells.”
