The Anti-Perfume-Celeb Trend by Celebs - Scented Quote of the Day, from Emma Watson:

After the surge of shamelessly self-promoting, attention-seeking celebs - the most numerous contingent, apparently - we get to hear from the less egotistical ones, apparently. The other day Justin Timberlake said he couldn't dream of making a celebrity perfume bearing his name, it would feel so fake and navel-gazing an enterprise. Now Emma Thompson reveals she is of the same breed: just the thought of putting her name on a fashion label and perfume bottle for the sake of narcissistic self-celebration makes her want to puke...

"I'm really not interested in doing it for my own ego. I'm not a designer," she says matter-of-factly. "If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I'd consider it, but not just [to be able to say] 'Look at me! I've got my own line!'"

"[It's] gotten so ridiculous," she continues. "The idea of making my own perfume makes me want to vomit."

  1. In your article, you name the actress "Emma Thompson" not Emma Watson as your title implies. :)


    • Yes, thank you! I realized that earlier for the title too and thought I had corrected the contents of the text, but must have had a moment of distraction!
