Ever since the gorgeous and classy Elizabeth Taylor, actress and social activist, came out with her own perfume, White Diamonds, in 1991, there's been an upward trend in celebrity perfumes. After all, why not branch out from acting or music with your own classic scent? It can certainly be lucrative.
