EXCLUSIVE: Celine Dion on the Power of her 'Brilliant' New Fragrance

09/02/2010 at 01:00 PM ET


Fragrance notoriously has the power to stir up feelings–but for Celine Dion, it’s able to spark as much emotion as any of her platinum-selling songs. “I remember buying my future husband a perfume that he was wearing at the time and I bought myself the same one to spray my pillow with his scent, and I was almost spraying my body with it,” she tells PEOPLE. “It was like I wanted to carry his scent as well.” Since then, the singer has gone pro with her love of fragrance, and will see her eighth U.S. launch this September with Pure Brilliance. And while creating a signature juice is no simple feat, inspiration, at least, is everywhere for Dion. “Probably because I’m carrying babies and I’ve been on vacation and I’m breathing great beach air and I’m with my family, it’s all about vacation and life,” the mom-to-be of twins says of this latest launch, a fruity floral created with Coty that features notes of pear, apple, green leaves, freesia and honeysuckle. As for her other well-known passion, the renown clothes-horse isn’t hard-pressed to name her go-to fashion favorite. “Pregnant or not, one of my favorite things is a tunic. You can wear it with flat shoes, with heels if you want to, even barefoot at the beach. It’s brilliant.” Fashion aside, the newest Brilliant thing in Celine’s life will launch in stores across America on September 6th, with prices starting at $28 for a 1-oz. eau de toilette. –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

Her husband wears perfume? One thing I hate about celebrity perfumes is that they are only the name of the brand. Someone else develops the fragrance, puts a few samples in front of them, and they pick A, B, or C. It’s easier to go to a department store and smell a fragrance without knowing the brand, then you’ll know which one you actually like the best. My current favorite fragrance is from snaub.com. It’s new enough that no one else has it. So I smell better than everyone else, and it’s not like showing up wearing the same prom dress.
