Taylor Swift is best known as a singer and songwriter, specifically with country and pop music. Her 2012 album (called Red) was Taylor’s first attempt at pop music, and it resulted in her exploding into the mainstream, but she was already a star at that point – well known for her country music. She got her start with Big Machine Records at 14 years old, debuting in 2004.
With Taylor Swift becoming more and more of an icon as the years went by, she dabbled in the fashion industry and started a fragrance brand. With her name already being well-known by the masses, the Taylor Swift fragrance brand was released in 2011.
The fragrances of the Taylor Swift brand are all an expression of her song lyrics in one way or another, adding another layer of depth to her perfumes. While there hasn’t been any recent releases, it doesn’t change the fact that the Taylor Swift fragrance brand is sophisticated and sublime.
Made of Starlight
For Those with Music in Their Soul
As part of the Taylor Swift collection, Made of Starlight is deeply connected to her music, and so the packaging comes in a music box. Upon removal of the perfume, the music box can also act as a jewelry box, making it a particularly special release in 2014.
The top notes are apricot, passion fruit, and mandarin leaf, and it’s accentuated by orange blossom, honeysuckle, and peach. Made of Starlight is one of the more interesting fragrances in the lineup.
If you’re looking for something different (and you love music boxes), Made of Starlight was made for you.
Fruity & Enchanting
Taylor Swift makes it a point that all of her fragrances have something to do with her songs in one way or another. As such, Wonderstruck was launched in 2011, and was inspired by the lyrics of her song, Enchanted.
The idea of Wonderstruck comes from the lyrics: “I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home,” which speaks of the feeling you get when you meet your first love. Floral, sweet, and fruity notes abound with this fragrance.
It’s a specific fragrance that elicits feelings of one’s first love. It’s a curious fragrance and one of the best in the lineup.
The Next Chapter of Wonderstruck
With the popularity of Wonderstruck, it was only a matter of time until a follow-up was released, with Wonderstruck Enchanted being launched in 2012. While Wonderstruck is all about that first feeling of love, Wonderstruck Enchanted takes it further into enchanting amore.
The combination of notes is exciting, with wild berries, passionfruit, sugar, vanilla, and woody notes accentuating the scent. It’s a scent that focuses on sweetness while also retaining floral and woody tones.
Wonderstruck Enchanted is touted as the next chapter of Wonderstruck, and those that loved the initial release will be mesmerized by Enchanted.
Velvety Petals & Creamy Woods
Incredible Things was the culmination of all the previous releases in the Taylor Swift lineup, developing a fragrance that is simultaneously complex and imaginative. It was released in the fall of 2014, and has served as one of the premier scents in the Taylor Swift lineup.
The scent has pink pepper, suede, passion flower, vanilla orchid, and Madagascar vanilla as its primary notes. It’s meant to elicit the feeling of velvety petals and creamy woods.
As one of the more complex fragrances developed by the Taylor Swift brand, it showcases the brilliance of the entire Taylor Swift fragrance lineup.
Taylor By Taylor Swift
The Premier Head-Turner
You’ll find that most fragrances that take the name of the creator typically are the fragrances that get the most attention. At the very least, it is the fragrance associated with the creator, which is why Taylor by Taylor Swift made waves when it launched in 2013.
Known as the premier head-turner in the lineup, Taylor by Taylor Swift has litchi, vanilla orchid, and apricot as its primary notes. It’s floral, fruity, and undoubtedly a scent developed with Taylor Swift in mind.
For those who want to feel closer to the American singer/songwriter, this fragrance is the top pick.
