Celebrities associate their names with signature scents mainly as a self-promotion campaign. Contracts are signed with perfume houses, who manufacture these scents and market them with the name of the celebrity being the selling point of the marketing strategy. It has been witnessed that celebrity-endorsed perfumes are famous for a short time and they do not enjoy the longevity of classic aromas, scents, and perfumes.
