Want to smell like a shoe? What if it's an $800 Jimmy Choo stiletto? Word comes today that the Chooster is about to launch a fragrance. Not exactly a surprise, says BlackBook: "Three years ago, J.C. penned a 12-year deal with Paris’ Inter Pafrums SA, which has licensed fragrances with Burberry, Lanvin, and Paul Smith... The contract went into effect in January of 2010, and the fragrance was said to be launching in Spring of 2010. After keeping ladies waiting for years, Mellon has finally been able to schedule a release date for her dream fragrance, or at the very least a press preview for this November." [BlackBook]
