The charismatic and curvaceous award-winning hip-hop artist, actress, and singer,  Queen Latifah is launching her second fragrance, Queen of Hearts this fall.  The parfum is a warm floriential.  The fragrance dances through many stages before it settles into a sophisticated sensual scent.

Queen Latifah’s work in music, film and television has earned her a Golden Globe award , Grammy award, five additional Grammy nominations, two Screen Actors Guild Awards an Emmy Award nomination and an Academy Award nomination (for Chicago).

Named one of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People in May 2008, she strives to empower women and instill knowledge and confidence with every opportunity.  Transcending the “urban” label, Latifah has a passionate following that crosses race, age and gender boundaries. The top Renaissance woman in the entertainment industry, she has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a first for a hip-hop artist that is now an award-winning actress and singer.

“The heart has a song all its own,” says Queen Latifah, “And this new fragrance sings out the message that beauty comes from the heart of a woman. Indeed, this fragrance too conveys my belief that beauty is a state of love, an expression of a woman’s confidence and sensuality. Queen of Hearts captures the allure of a woman’s body, her mind and her inner strength.”

Queen of Hearts by Queen Latifah

Queen of Hearts Eau de Parfum, 3.4 fl. 0z, $59.00, Available at fine department stores.

Queen of Hearts opens with an attractive harmony, balancing warm and cool, rich fruit notes and exotic spices, a combination that exudes the balance of strength and femininity embodied by Queen Latifah.  Mediteranean Citrus, warm notes of Bergamot harmonize with cool, Dewy Greens; then bold, spicy accents of Cinnamon add a counterpoint to the sensual fruity notes of Dark Purple Plum. At the heart of the fragrance, the contrasting theme of delicate femininity countered by the inner strength of a woman continues: Romantic, elegant and intriguing notes of Egyptian Jasmine are enhanced by crisp Red Fruits and together blend into a stunning White Floral Bouquet. Sensuality rules as the fragrance lingers on the skin: Warm Amber, Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla Bean, Oilbanum and Smoky Incense weave together to form a memorable chorus.

The Bottle

Delicately faceted and edged with gold borders, the sheer, sexy square bottle for Queen of Hearts is as dynamic as Queen Latifah herself. A dimensional heart emerges on the façade, reinforcing Queen’s message of beauty from within.
