Whitney Houston’s Estate is launching a fragrance inspired by the late singer’s signature style.

Pat Houston, Houston’s executor and sister-in-law, worked with perfumers to develop a scent inspired by the star’s personal fragrance collection.

The Whitney Houston Signature fragrance is fruity and floral, with top notes of pear leaf, pink peppercorn and neroli.

Heart notes are night jasmine, Brazilian gardenia and ylang-ylang, complemented by woody base notes of orris root and creamy musk.

The estate has partnered with bespoke fragrance e-commerce platform Scent Beauty, Houston talent management firm Primary Wave and perfumer Firmenich on fragrance.

Over her decades-long career, Houston became the most awarded entertainer of all time.

Nicknamed “the voice”, she had 11 Billboard number ones, including “It’s Not Right But It’s OK”, “I’m Every Woman” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”.

The star died ten years ago.

“Whitney Houston was a pioneer in entertainment and a true inspiration to women,” said Steve Mormoris, Founder and CEO of Scent Beauty.

“We wanted to continue to bring her legacy to life through a fragrance that encompasses everything she has achieved.”

The perfume is housed in a tall crystal-shaped bottle, which “recalls the stature of the singer”, and the design of the cap is a nod to all the trophies she has received.

Houston’s signature is on the purple tag, which is said to have been the star’s favorite color.

The Whitney Houston Signature fragrance will launch on perfumebeauty.com in November.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Whitney E. Houston Legacy Foundation, which helps young people rebuild their lives and self-esteem through local programs.
