It’s been since the 1980s when fragrances and perfumes endorsed by celebrities have been popular. It’s Sophia Loren who is most commonly credited with being the one who created the very first celebrity fragrance. In 1981, she released her perfume called “Sophia,” which was created with Coty, a legendary fragrance company.
It was this product that sparked several celebrity fragrances to follow, and many have been released to the market with a great reception, endorsed by celebrities like Taylor Swift, Michael Jordan, Elizabeth Taylor, and Britney Spears.
