Mary J. Blige, celebrity ambassador of beauty brand Carol’s Daughter, is set to release a new fragrance in collaboration with the brand this summer. My Life by Mary J. Blige, is named in honor of the Grammy winner’s second album, which represented a major turning point in Blige’s life and career.

freesia; the heart is tuberose, blooming jasmine, gold lily and
apricot flower, and the drydown is cashmere woods, praline, sesame
My Life will retail for $46 for 1.7 oz. The scent will be available exclusively on HSN starting on July 31st, and will arrive in
department stores across the U.S. next year.
