Dolly Parton, Tennessee’s ray of sunshine, has found even more fame as of lately. The singer created a signature perfume, and her fans are obsessed.
“Dolly – Scent From Above” was first introduced in July on the Home Shopping Network. Upon its release, it sold out faster than any HSN fragrance has sold over the past decade. And by fast, we mean it was completely gone in less than a week.
Luckily, as of yesterday, the perfume is fully re-stocked. But, it may not last long, so grab a bottle while it’s available.
The fragrance is a mix of mandarin, vanilla, patchouli, and sandalwood and has notes of peony blossoms and jasmine. Dolly Parton describes her blend as “cloud-like and soft.” She further adds that “it smells heavenly,” which is how it earned its name.
It took Dolly two years to create her now-famous scent. “I’ve always liked pretty things and pretty smells,” Parton said. Her favorite bath oils, bath powders, flavors, and perfumes lent inspiration to the feminine fragrance.
Scent From Above comes in a beautiful blush-colored glass bottle, and Dolly topped it with a sparkling butterfly.
Her perfume launch is one of many successful business ventures. In fact, Forbes recently named her on their “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” list. Parton is proof that kindness and positivity will take you anywhere in this world.
Dolly Parton Teams Up With Hank Williams’ Grandson
Sam Williams, the grandson of Hank Williams, recorded a duet with Dolly Parton. And Williams admitted that it was a dream come true to sing with the iconic songstress.
“It’s just so awesome for country music, for the queen of everything, a legend like that to embrace someone so new, a little bit left of center, it’s just amazing, and I still can’t believe it. I can’t believe I’m sitting here talking to you right now,” Williams told New Music Daily.
The song entitled “Happy All the Time” debuted on August 16th on Apple Music to promote his album, “Glasshouse Children.” The album also features Keith Urban.
Williams wrote the song a few years ago, but he was waiting for someone like Dolly Parton to lend her voice.
“I’d always envisioned Dolly singing on it, so I wrote her this sincere two-page letter, and when it finally got to her, she loved the track and said she’d be honored to sing on it,” he said. “She has one of my favorite voices of all time, and she can do so much with it, and it’s just as strong now as it’s ever been. I had the song done about two years ago, so I was only 21 years old, and to have someone of her stature to forehead stamp me like that, I just couldn’t believe it.”
The full album dropped on August 20th and is available on Apple Music.
