Courteney Cox and Faith Hill Get Fragrance Deals; Tom Ford Makes Soap on a Rope


• Furthering their effort to garner publicity with celebrity-shilled fragrances, Avon signed Courteney Cox as the new face of Spotlight. Compelling choice. (But, you know, not really.) [WWD]

Abbey Lee stars in the new fragrance ads for Gucci's new Flora scent, which includes notes of citrus, peony, rose, and osmanthus. [WWD]

• Faith Hill is developing a fragrance with Coty, which also developed her husband Tim McGraw's scent. Department-store fragrance shelves, prepare for battle. [WWD]

• Tom Ford makes $18 soap on a rope with the scent of Tom Ford for Men. (Insert your own jail-related joke here.) [Haute Concept]

• A study says that more women would rather look ten years younger than lose ten pounds. No, accepting oneself is not an option. [UPI]
