If your boyfriend or girlfriend is using a celebrity-branded fragrance and it surprisingly doesn't smell awful, well, there's actually a good reason for that:
Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift's signature scents, among others, are the licensed products of Elizabeth Arden, the global cosmetics giant.
Elizabeth Arden claims in a federal lawsuit, however, that a company called Preferred Fragrance has been trying to ape their products with knockoff versions.
Two Bieber perfumes (Someday and Justin Bieber's Girlfriend) have raked in $87 million, while Taylor's Wonderstruck perfumes and lotions hauled in $60 million.
The company says Preferred's Bieber products, called Today and Be My Girl, use packaging that almost exactly copies that of the official JB perfumes.
The lawsuit points out other similar infractions related to Nicki Minaj and Swift products and says Preferred repeatedly infringes on Arden trademarks.
Bottom line: If you're going to waste money on celebrity fragrances that may or may not smell terrible just because you like them ... buy the real McCoy.
