If there was some sort of checklist for achieving female celebrity icon status, Taylor Swift would have most of the boxes checked off. She's had artistic success, a movie cameo, A-List boyfriends, a scandal of massive proportions (that involved another celebrity, to boot), and a newly minted Madame Tussaud's wax figure made in her image. But, until now, she has been missing one element all megastars must have: the fragrance.

Like Britney, Mariah and Beyonce have done before her, Taylor has inked a deal to develop her own scent. The country star will work with Elizabeth Arden on the fragrance, which does not yet have a name.
"I have always loved how fragrance can shape a memory... the way certain scents remind you of events and people that are imprinted in your thoughts," she said in a statement. "Lately I've been having fun experimenting with combining some of my favorite scents."
This is great news for people who love remembering things and also enjoy the smell of expensive wood.
