BeyoncePop diva Beyoncé Knowles recently announced that she will have her own fragrance (as I predicted back in April). The debut scent to be made by Coty Inc., was planned to be named Sasha Fierce after her alternative personality that was featured on her most recent album, I Am Sasha Fierce. Beyoncé filed to trademark the name in September, 2008, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. However Abercrombie & Fitch Co. has a men’s cologne called Fierce that they’ve been selling since 2002 and has been trademarked since 2003. They took legal measures to request that Beyoncé not use the name, claiming that it would be confusing for consumers. At this point Coty says that the words Fierce and Sasha Fierce will not be used in the title of the fragrance now. It seems they prefer to avoid any legal matter disputes.

In 2004 Beyoncé launched her own fragrance called Little Star, a Tommy Hilfiger scent. In 2007 she became the face of Emporio Armani Diamonds, but this was not her own fragrance. Thew new fragrance will be her first independent of a designer label. Due to launch in the spring, there is no word yet on the name of the scent. Any guesses what the name may become? I’m going with Single Lady!
