Chaka Khan Finally Releases Her Own Perfume

Chaka Khan has been busy captivating audiences with her soulful voice for so long that she made little time for entrepreneurial endeavors. But all that’s changing as the self-described “fragrance freak” releases her first perfume, Essence reports.

“I’ve always been a fragrance freak, too,” she tells Essence. “I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner. I’ve been making body sprays and fragrances for people for years.”

Made using a combination of oils Chaka has been wearing for years, the new fragrance includes hints of patchouli and lemongrass, among other earthy tones. It’s also a “life scent” she feels reflects her own lifestyle.

“I’m a fan of men’s colognes, so I was most inspired by those fragrances and earthy tones. I’m not a fan of floral scents,” she shared. “Now, whenever I wear it, people always stop and ask me what I have on. They tell me they have to have some. It’s definitely reflective of me – it’s my life’s scent.”

The “Ain’t Nobody” singer also designed the perfume’s sleek microphone-inspired packaging that she says “came naturally” to the creative. With one fragrance under her belt, Chaka is ready to release new scents for different demographics.

She has plans for “something for young girls,” and “I also want to make something really healthy for getting good sleep.”
