With Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds perfume line earning one billion dollars over the years—and Liz has been dead for two years, mind you—it’s no wonder a growing number of celebs are getting into the fragrance game.  This summer saw additional scents from David Beckham, Beyonce and Britney Spears, and a new cologne from rocker Adam Levine. Based on the theory that the stars really capture their own essence in their fragrance, we’ve taken a look at seven celebrity scents to figure out what they’re really all about.
