FKA Twigs developing new fragrance

British singer Fka Twigs has become the latest celebrity aiming to taste the sweet smell of success with a new fragrance.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson's fiancee is collaborating with House of Matriarch on a perfume which is due out later this year (16), according to the scent brand's founder Christi Meshell.

Meshell previously developed a custom perfume for the Video Girl singer, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, and the two women became friends.

"Real beauty knocks you a little bit off-kilter, and FKA Twigs knocks you a little bit off-kilter," says Christi, as she talks about the new scent project. "She brings a feminine voice to beauty in a new and raw way. I am really happy to be working with her. She's inspiring to me.

"She's gutsy... She's very anti-establishment like I am."

And the perfumer is convinced the new scent will be an overnight success once it's available, adding, "Her fans are dying for anything she drops."

It is not clear if the new fragrance will be based on FKA Twig's signature scent or a completely new idea.

The provocative British singer/songwriter joins the likes of Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Avril Lavigne, and Lady Gaga among the performers who have left their scent on the fragrance market.

Meanwhile, FKA Twigs turned heads at New York's Met Ball on Monday night (02May16) when she hit the red carpet in a figure-hugging, flesh-coloured Atelier Versace gown and head jewellery attached to her nose piercing, with Pattinson by her side, minutes after his ex, Kristen Stewart, had posed for photographers.
