Usher gushes over his new ‘piece of himself’ perfume

Usher has released his own celebrity fragrance.

The Yeah singer has become the latest star to launch a signature scent – Usher For Women and Usher For Men – and unveiled the fragrances at a party in New York’s Cipriani restaurant on Tuesday night (26.09.07).

Usher told the New York Daily News: “Fragrance is another way of interpreting emotion and that’s what Usher For Men and Usher For Women are – it’s sophisticated for a woman, and confident for a man.

“They represent strength and sexiness, and more than anything, they represent mystery and a journey. I wanted to offer a piece of myself, no different than a beautiful song I may create that takes many instruments, stories, and places I’ve gone to create those songs.”

The fragrances – which were inspired by Usher’s pregnant wife Tameka Foster – have already backed by the R’n’B singer’s celebrity friends.

Beyonce Knowles, who has her own perfume range, said: “It’s beautiful. It’s very feminine and very sexy.”
