Justin Bieber Thinks He Knows What Women Want


justin bieber and jay lenoThat Justin Bieber says some of the darnedest things sometimes. Sure, he may be a cutie (if you're a pre-teen and into that too-long faux hawk look), but when it comes to being a beauty product salesman, not so much. The 17-year-old charmer visited The Tonight Show and spoke to Jay Leno about his fragrance, Someday. And what he said made him sound totally clueless.

"What I was thinking [when I made this perfume] is like, girls are gonna like something that a guy is gonna like. I modeled it off of something that I would like a girl to smell like. They're gonna wanna smell like what guys want them to smell like, right?"

Sorry Justin, no dice. If Bieber truly believes that women want to smell how men WANT them to smell, he's got another thing coming. Doesn't he know we have our own opinions?

Not to state the obvious, but men and women are very different. I can only imagine what guys would ask girls to smell like if they had a say in the matter. I think of a lot of the guys I know and the things they "like," and can't help but laugh uncontrollably. My boyfriend, for instance, once told me he loves the smell of nail polish remover and gasoline. I also happen to know he couldn't resist a large cheese pizza if he tried. So does that mean he wants me to smell like intoxicating fumes and mozzarella cheese? Okay, maybe not.

While we're at it, I'm guessing that Bieber knows as much about women's scents as I do about men's. I couldn't tell you the difference between a sniff of men's Axe deodorant or a spritz of Calvin Klein cologne. To me, it all has the same sort of whiff. I would never tell my guy what to wear. Personally, I'm just glad he's wearing something.

Note to Mr. Bieber: I want to smell like something I like, not something my man likes. I'm the one who has to breathe in the scent 24/7, right? And just because Bieber's face is on the bottle doesn't mean I'd change my tune. Perhaps if I had Bieber fever, however, things would be different.

I never thought I'd say this but I'm with Bieber on this one. Women wear perfume and make up to be attractive and a big part of that for single women is attracting potential mates and even married women try to attract their mate because nobody likes to be ignored. If I were buying a perfume I'd Trey it on and ask my hubby for his opinion before laying out money because there's no point in spending money on perfume that won't attract him.

Totally agree with Rhonda.

I pick a scent depending on my mood for the day, and I have to like it as well. I don't want to wear something I don't like just because my husband does. But on the whole, I agree with RhondaVeggie. Women tend to dress and primp to attract other men (or women, if that's your thing). Just take a look at any woman's magazine articles. "Scents that Drive Him Wild", "Hairstyles to Impress Him", etc. But I think I'll cut Justin Bieber some slack. I don't like his music and obviously his view on women is a little flawed, but he's only what...17? 16? It would be very shocking if he knew what women wanted while in his teens. There are quite a few men in their 40's and 50's who don't know what women want, why should a teenager?

I've been wearing men's cologne and deodorant for months because I got tired of the only perfume I've ever liked. Sorry, but I'd rather smell like a guy than smell like what a guy wants me to smell like. And considering I've gotten more (unexpected) compliments on how I smell from men since the switch than I've ever had before, I'm inclined to say that men don't know how they want us to smell either, but it's probably not flowery or fruity or like a cheese pizza. Granted, I haven't read a fashion mag in four years, one of my boyfriends hasn't seen me in real clothes in three weeks (maybe he should stop running late), and my idea of looking pretty for bed/the morning after is not wearing my Pepto Bismal pink spot treatment to bed, I could be kind of clueless about picking up guys. Except for the polyamory/two boyfriends thing. 


I wear what I like, which always happens to be something my husband likes too.
