Perfumes & Fragrances

Forever Krystle - Fragrance inspired by the prime time soap DYNASTY/ABC/1981-89. John Forsythe and Linda Evans plugged the perfume named Forever Krystle based on their Blake Carrington and Krystle Carrington characters.

Selling for $9.75 a bottle, this tantalizing TV fragrance created by Yves St. Laurent (he also made a men's cologne called Carrington) sold more than 6.5 million dollars in 1985. As Linda Evans said in the commercials "A woman's scent is her identity."

Joan Collins who played the wicked bitch Alexis Carrington hawked her own fragrance appropriately enough called Scoundrel.

Other celebrities hopped onto the merchandising bandwagon with their own fragrances.

  • Elizabeth Taylor pushed Passion at $160.00 a bottle and later White Diamonds

  • Cher unveiled Uninhibited

  • Mikhail Baryshnikov manufactured Misha for women

  • Julio Iglesia introduced Only in May of 1989.

 Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) the vampish horror show hostess hawked a perfume called Evil Her perfume was developed without animal testing and contained no animal ingredients. The profits were donated to People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

In 1991, Victoria Principal (of DALLAS fame) followed suit with an animal free line of cosmetics called Principal Secret.

A tongue-in-cheek article in TV Guide (2/10-16/1996) reviewed such fragrances as MP (Melrose Place), Mariel by H20 Plus (Central Park West), Amphibia, Pour Homme, Femme, et Frog (Kermit the Muppet).

In the fall of 1998, Miss Piggy introduced her own fragrance called Moi. No animals were used in the testing of this perfume, just lawyers.
