Mary J. Blige’s debut fragrance for HSN, My Life, sold a record-breaking 55,000 plus bottles just 21 hours! “I am thrilled with the success of My Life, the experience on HSN…and the overwhelming donations to FFAWN,” said the nine-time Grammy Award winner, who runs the non-profit Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now—to which a portion of the fragrance’s proceeds were donated. “I can’t wait to share another touch of my heart. Thank you to all my fans—new and old—for being there for me.” The scent, which has notes of gardenia, tuberose and cashmere woods, attracted not only her music fans, but also a few famous friends. During the live telecast on HSN this weekend, pals Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell called in to offer their support.
