Beauty Insider: High Note
After a career of number one songs, Mary J. Blige creates her latest record-breaking hit: a fragrance inspired by her personal journey.

She may be best known for her soulful, R&B chart-topping singles or her nine Grammy Awards and 13 albums, but New York native Mary J. Blige is quickly making a name for herself in another art form: fragrance. Her debut perfume, names after he autobiographical 1994 album My Life, broke sales records during its six-hour inaugural run on HSN - no small feat, considering the 60,000 units were snapped up without a single customer getting so much as a whiff of the juice. The fragrance also comes with a special gift with purchase: One dollar from every sale of My Life benefits Blige's charity, Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc. (FFAWN). Blige, who calls Halle Berry a beauty icon ("her skin is flawless"), says she's an unlikely condidate for perfume mogul-dom. "For years, I had trouble finding a fragrance I liked," she says. Here, Blige shares her thoughts on signature scents....

When did you become passionate about fragrance?
"Back in the day, most perfume smelled too strong for me, so I didn't wear any, but I finally found one I loved and stocked up on it. Every time I wore it, women would ask me what it was and I still have never told anyone my secret. I was inspired to create My Life so I could finally share a personaly part of my life beyond my music."

Does My Life smell like your secret scent?
"They both have jasmine. I didn't think I was a floral girl, by Lisa Price, the founder of beauty brand Carol's Daughter, with whom I collaborated on the fragrance, told me it was the jasmine in my favorite scent that was making me go crazy for it. As a result, jasmine is a heart note. My Life is soft, with notes of pear and gardenia, but still bold, with a woody base."

Side bar: "I keep My Life Mary J. Blige Eau de Parfum Rollerball in my purse - it's perfect for all of the travel I do... I layer my lotion [My Life Mary J. Blige Body Lotion] on top of the shower gel - it's crazy how much I love this scent." -Mary J. Blige

Final Look: In the Bag
R & B powerhouse Mary J. Blige nixed the drama long ago. Here, she gives us the 411 on her purse.

My Life perfume:
"Women were my inspiration for this scent. It has a softness to it because sometimes we feel soft, but there's also a fruitiness for when you're feeling edgy and want someone to want to, like, lick your arm. There's a toughness, too, which are the wood notes - it shows people that we're the full package.

Inspiration: Mary J. Blige
[Mary J. Blige] cofounded the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, which supports women's career development, self-esteem, and education through scholarships... "My Life was the name of the album that started my women's-empowerment movement," she says, "so I wanted to make [this fragrance] for women." Known for wearing her heart on her sleeve no matter what she's going through, Blige asked that the perfume come in a heart-shaped bottle. "So many women are all heart", she says. And in her case, also a little grit.

Life in a Bottle
Mary J. Blige partnered with Carol's Daughter to create My Life, a fragrance with notes of gardenia, pear, freesia, and sesame. "It's the epitome of a confident woman," says Blige. The $55 fragrance will be available exclusively through HSN starting July 31. One dollar from each purchase will be donated to the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, a charity cofounded by Blige.
