One member of the Beauty Team had an ex-boyfriend with a real penchant for Taylor Swift’s “music,” and used to come out with all sorts of weird facts about her whenever she came on the radio in the car. Who knew that when she was 12, she devoted an entire summer to writing a 350-page novel, which remains unpublished? You might have thought that these musings might have put us off the lovely lady, but in fact we’re still rather partial to the odd Taylor tune. Plus, this morning we’ve learnt that the songstress has just signed a deal with Elizabeth Arden to release her first fragrance in Autumn 2011. Swift claims to be a big fan of perfumes and plans to be thoroughly involved in the creation process. She says, 'I have always loved how fragrance can shape a memory the way certain scents remind you of events and people that are imprinted in your thoughts. Lately I've been having fun experimenting with combining some of my favourite scents, so I'm really excited about working with Elizabeth Arden to develop my own unique fragrance,' said Swift. Here's to hoping her fragrance is as er "Fearless" as her music, oh, and we’ll spritz to a new “Love Story” too. Geddit?
