Jennifer Lopez has been working on a new fragrance.
The perfume, which is now on sale online at Ulta Beauty and set to roll out in stores on September 28, is described as “the essence of a multifaceted and powerful woman.” It features top notes of Italian tangerine, pink berries and nashi pea, a middle of orris, jasmine sambac and dewy honeysuckle and a woody, crystallized amber base.
The superstar, 50, took to Instagram to share the news of the drop with her 101 million followers, posting images from the official announcement alongside the message “Today was SOOOO special!!!” She also offered fans a glimpse of the official campaign imagery, which sees her posing in a slinky, metallic dress.
“Working with the force that is Jennifer Lopez to create something truly unique in the category has been inspiring,” Parag Vidyarthi, managing director of the license holder for Lopez’s fragrances, Designer Parfums, told WWD. “As the ultimate visionary and creative partner, Jennifer was steadfast in her pursuit to ensure Promise delivers the powerful emotional fragrance experience women are seeking.”
Jennifer Lopez is on the promo trail, promoting her upcoming film, Second Act, which hits theaters next week. As part of the promotion schedule, she was on The Tonight Show. She also filmed her interviews for The Daily Show, which will air tomorrow (Dec 12), and Watch What Happens Live, which will air Thursday (Dec 13).

Bad Bunny had said, “I barely said a word to her because I was so nervous. I felt the pressure“, adding: “She’s a total professional, a diva, a mega-star, not just in music but in the entertainment industry. You always learn from the greats, and J.Lo is one.” The Fader called the track reggaeton and a “long-awaited” collaboration. According to Suzette Fernandez of Billboard, the song’s lyrics feature an exchange “when a couple meet for the first time, like each other and are remembering that moment.”

It was supposed to be Jennifer Lopez’s day off. Cue visions of her lounging by her infinity pool in Bel-Air, friends hanging, tunes turned up. Instead, Lopez, the multihyphenate performer, producer and branding maven, held a half-dozen business meetings in her home here, from early morning until sundown, on ambitious ventures ranging from real estate to fitness.
A studio head was there, some developer types, marketing people, her TV and film producing partner, her manager and Alex Rodriguez, her boyfriend. The couple were hoping to have dinner together, but “you see what goes on around here,” she said, unapologetically, as they went over the day’s agenda.
A gracious Bel-Air mansion — complete with mini-waterfalls (yes, plural), fireplaces blazing in even empty rooms, and two bunnies that belong to Lopez’s 10-year-old twins — might seem an unlikely spot to transform into a C-suite. But when Lopez moved in two years ago, she designed an office like a boardroom, complete with big conference table. It just happens to be next to the couture-filled space where she gets her hair and makeup done. And so she whisks in, half-dolled up, to present her opinions and outsize ideas, and she sells them: J. Lo Inc., in action.
Jennifer Lopez is sitting by the pool behind her Bel-Air mansion, waiting for two staffers to move an umbrella closer to her chair and thinking about how her life could have turned out very differently. She sends a quick text to boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, takes a sip of ice water, and sits still for a moment while a stylist applies a piece of double-stick tape to the plunging neckline of her Alexandre Vauthier dress so there will be no cleavage mishaps during a TV appearance later in the afternoon. Then Lopez reflects on how close she came to ending up as a bank teller in the Bronx.
“If I didn’t have certain ambitions, I might have gotten married after high school and had kids and decided to get a job at a bank in Castle Hill, like my aunt did,” says the New York native. “It’s just that I had dreams and ideas that were different.”
Lopez, who turns 50 in July, has been pondering her life path a lot lately. It’s partly because in her new movie, Second Act, she plays a character whom she describes as “soooo me” — an outer-borough girl with no connections and no college degree who suddenly finds herself across the river in Manhattan, navigating a world of glamour and power and Madison Avenue shopping sprees. It’s also because Lopez, after almost three decades of relentlessly public highs and lows, now understands herself better than she used to. A mother of 10-year-old twins (with ex-husband Marc Anthony) who meditates daily while juggling the jobs of actor, singer, Vegas performer, producer, reality-show judge, etc., etc., she has developed the kind of confidence that makes it easier to talk about her insecurities. Shortly after her breakout film, Selena, came out in 1997, Lopez remembers, she was speaking with a cousin whom she has known since she was young. “He said that whenever he saw me on TV or in movies, he thought, ‘She’s scared, but she’s doing it anyway.’ And he was absolutely right — I was terrified. But I really wanted to try. I wanted to do it.”
Jenny is back on the block! Filming new video for her next single, “Amor, Amor, Amor“! This is said to serve as her follow up single for her upcoming spanish album, which is rumored to have an September release date.
The video is being shot by Jessy Terrero, and it features Wisin! Check out the photos in the gallery.
Angela Missoni has always been passionate about supporting other women, whether that’s meant fostering talent at her family’s heritage knitwear brand, taking a stand against the patriarchy with last season’s must-have pink pussy hats, or supporting a variety of women-focused charities. With her latest project, you can get involved just by picking up some new Missoni merch: For the entire month of October (which also happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month), a special $35 T-shirt she designed for Saks Fifth Avenue’s Key to the Cure Charity will be available in all Saks locations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as online, with 100 percent of proceeds going to 12 local cancer charities, among them American Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and TGen Foundation.
“At Missoni, we’ve worked with Saks for so long, so I’ve always known about its Key to the Cure [initiatives],” Missoni tells Vogue. “We’ve supported women’s cancer causes in Italy as a family for many, many years, and we’re sensitive about the subject. Besides the fact that my mother, my daughter, and I are very involved in any kind of women’s [aid], the fashion industry is mainly based on women, too. It had been a long time since we did something in New York, and I’m celebrating 20 years as the creative director at Missoni this year, so supporting this cause was the perfect way to celebrate my anniversary.”
Jennifer Lopez, who set up her own cancer foundation in 2009, is the ambassador for the project and appears in the campaign image here. “Jennifer has a very strong voice,” Missoni adds. “Together with Saks and my family, we think when you have a strong voice, you have to use it for good causes.”
