Songstress Mary J. Blige moved a record-breaking 60,000 bottles of her just-launched perfume My Life in six hours on HSN. The online reviews have, so far, been overwhelmingly positive. One reviewer writes: "It's powerful at first, but then it settles with your own body chemistry. It becomes subtle, but yet strong enough to last. I cannot stop smelling my wrist." After 60,000 units sold, you can still get your hands on a bottle online at The scent features top notes of gardenia petals, bartlett pear, and white freesia; mid notes of tuberose, jasmine, golden lily, and apricot blossom; and base notes of cashmere woods, praline, sesame, and incense.
