OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift’s Next (Fragrance) Chapter

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

It’s almost like Taylor Swift has a new release. Only, it’s not a song. It’s a fragrance. She revealed Friday (June 29) in Women’s Wear Daily that she now has a follow-up to her first Wonderstruck fragrance. “Wonderstruck Enchanted is the next chapter in the story of my Wonderstruck fragrance,” Swift said. “Wonderstruck is about that moment when you instantly feel a connection to someone, but then there’s that feeling of being completely enamored — enchanted — when you know a little more about that someone and still feel that strong connection.” And because the enchanting story is made up of so many scents, it’s remarkable that they all fit in this little crimson bottle (with tiny vintagey gold charms). There are wild berries, passion fruit, pink poppy, peony swirls, sugar-glazed champaca petals, blooming white freesia, white musk, hypnotic vanilla and blond woods. If Swift continues down this fragrance path, will they all have names that come from her song, “Enchanted”? Both Wonderstruck and Enchanted come from that one song. So might her next one be Playful or Sparkling or Forever? (I seriously doubt she’d call any fragrance Insincerity, Vacancy or Vanished.)
