Is Coty about to sign one of the biggest celebrity deals ever?WWD reports: "Meanwhile, Madonna—the Great White Whale of celebrities without a major fragrance deal—also is said to be in serious discussions with Coty. While no deal has been signed, a Madonna license would give Coty an alluring trifecta of star power—along with Lady Gaga, whose scent is due next year, and Beyoncé, who has done two pillar scents and a flanker (no word on whether she’s planning another fragrance around her other new arrival, a baby said to be due in late February)." Yes, WWD totally just called Madonna a whale. [WWD]
