Carrie Underwood: Having People Smell Like Me 'Might Weird Me Out'

Carrie Underwood
Lionel Hahn/Abaca

Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez and (begrudgingly) Adam Levine may be into the idea of creating their own fragrances, but one star who’s not? Carrie Underwood.

“I really don’t know if I would do the whole fragrance thing,” she tells AOL’s The Boot. “I don’t want to smell like anybody else.”

More importantly, she doesn’t want anyone else smelling like her. “If people walked up to me smelling like me, it might weird me out,” she admits. “So that one’s not quite for me.”

However, the young starlet — the current face of Olay — isn’t totally opposed to putting her name on a product. When asked about creating clothing and shoes someday, the singer has a change of tune. “I would love to do that for other people,” she shares, “and create things that people would like to wear.” Perhaps we have another Jessica Simpson in our midst? Tell us: Have you ever purchased a celebrity perfume?

What’s wrong with not wanting people to smell like you…?

I like Carrie Underwood but unless she wears a fragrance she had personally commissioned from a perfume house odds are she’s wearing a fragrance someone else wears. Of course body chemistry always plays a factor, which is why a friend can smell amazing in one perfume and you smell bleh in it, even the rarer perfumes have a fan base otherwise they’d have long since gone out of business. So she probably smells like someone else or is wearing the same perfume as at least one other person. I’m kind of glad I’m tired of celebrity fragrances. Not that I’m saying they smell bad, but I feel a lot of sales are due to the name and less the fragrance, and I feel sort of cheesy buying something with a celebrity name attached to it. I won’t buy this one fragrance from Paris Hilton simply because I have others I prefer more and I don’t want to buy something that has her name on it and contribute to her wealth even in some very minute way. Lol. I think Carrie is being silly but I love her so I don’t really care. She doesn’t have to make a perfume, she’s doing well as is. :)

Carrie Underwood, “animal lover”, the face of Olay- a company that still uses the horrific and cruel animal testing practices for tall their products. $$$$$.

Hey you haters, quit dissing on Carrie. She’s a very nice down-to-earth lady so leave her alone. Can you say J-E-A-L-O-U-S? That’s what you are.

I have never bought a perfume, and not everyone has to create one, she has every right to her opinions, and she can do what she wants, good luck to her!

I like that she isnt following the crowd and doing her own thing. making perfume is just dumb and they usually smell really bad anyway. the only one ive bought was britney spear’s curious and i still love it to this day. I really think that she is following her life the way she wants to.

Come on people…THINK! I am sure she knows that perfume smells differently on everyone and that it wouldnt literally smell like her. I am sure what she is thinking if she had a perfume with her name on it then every little teeny bopper that went to see her in concert would be covered in it and when she did meet and greets thats all she would smell and thats what would be weird to her. I am sure if it was one person she would think “oh shes wearing the perfume” but if everyone she met was wearing it that would be weird. And duuuuuuhhhhhhh its a way for them to make money, anyone who thought different is dumb…if the celebrities really cared about the perfume they would just make one for themseleves (which anyone can do, but it costs money) and leave it at that. - Allt om Kändisar, Blogg och Mode Details on Beyoncé’s Latest Project | on
