The hits keep coming for Mariah Carey. Not the songs, per se; the singer hasn’t released an album since 2009 (although one is reportedly in the works). But the American Idol judge’s fragrance business is booming. Her twelfth scent, Dreams, launches next month.[Billboard]
Remember that meteorite that crashed into Russia’s Ural region last month? Rather than erect plaques or statues, local authorities are memorializing the event with a perfume.

Let it be known Paris Hilton is not a drug user, despite what you may have read recently. How do we know? Her hairstylist—credible source that he is—told us. Hilton’s go-to coif master, Michael Boychuck, says that Paris “wants everyone to know she does not do drugs and does not have time for that.” Satisfied? [Radar Online]
The rumor mill is churnin’, but the family-owned OPI confirms that it is not in fact selling its quirky nail polish brand to a bigger company, like Essie did earlier this year. Phew. We worry that going corporate would mean the end of all those quirky names—”I’m not really a waitress,” anyone? [WWD]
