Eau de Winehouse

Amy Winehouse has many qualities that are to be commended. She has a fine voice, a talent for songwriting and has produced one of the best albums of the decade in Back to Black. Hell, before her smack habit turned her into skin and bone she was a damn fine looking woman too.

However, one of things you probably wouldn’t want is her fragrance. Not that she smells bad necessarily, but she’s not exactly got the angelic image a perfume tends to need has she? This hasn’t stopped the Winehouse family touting around the idea of a Amy Winehouse perfume to various companies, and they've apparently already turned down a £500,000 pound offer. Not that Amy can be arsed with promoting it herself.

‘They want it to reflect her style with a classic smoky 1950s look and smell,’ said a source to The Daily Star (so take this with a pinch of salt). ‘Amy is keen to expand her brand and wants to latch on to the celeb perfumes bandwagon while she can. They know her fans love to copy her style, and her trademark fashion and beehive hair-do were last year’s must-have look (were they? - Ed).

‘Frankly, she doesn’t look like she smells that nice,’ the source added, quite bluntly. ‘So doing some positive publicity to prove it doesn’t just smell of stale booze and fags would be vital.’
