SWEET LIKE CANDY Fragrance by Ariana Grande

Global superstar and recording artist Ariana Grande reveals a new seductively irresistible scent, SWEET LIKE CANDY by Ariana Grande. The newest pillar of her top-selling fragrance collection in creation with LUXE Brands launches exclusively at Ulta Beauty.

As a force to be reckoned with, Grande shows no sign of slowing down. In the past year, the beloved artist has more than doubled her loyal Instagram following to over 79 million globally, making her one of TIME’s Most Influential People of 2016. Her critically-acclaimed third studio album, Dangerous Woman, reached number one on iTunes in over 70 countries and was the number 1 selling album in the world for the week of its release. Grande’s growing list of successes includes a double-platinum album, two Grammy nominations, and following her latest album, she is the first artist in Billboard Hot 100 history to have the lead single of each of her first three albums debut in the top 10.

For her next beauty venture, Grande shares a delightful daydream sure to consume her growing family of fans around the world.  SWEET LIKE CANDY by Ariana Grande captures a new sexy wink of the popstar’s ever-evolving confidence and style. An extension of her personal expression, every element of the decadent scent carries Ariana’s seductively flirtatious character with hints of sugary playfulness throughout the fragrance story. With the launch of SWEET LIKE CANDY by Ariana Grande, the starlet could not be more excited to treat fans to her newest fragrance passion.

“Launching my debut fragrance ARI last year was an absolute dream, so I’m thrilled to announce my new fragrance, SWEET LIKE CANDY, to the world! Just like ARI, I wanted the new fragrance to be something that my fans would love so the vibe is sweet, fun and sexy. I’m also obsessed with the bottle which is the perfect shade of matte pink,” said Grande.


LUXE Brands, a beauty industry global leader, is pleased to welcome the newest pillar to the Ariana Grande fragrance portfolio. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner again with Ariana Grande to launch her second fragrance.  Ariana took the beauty industry by storm last year when she launched ARI and we have no doubt that she will do it again with SWEET LIKE CANDY! More units of ARI were sold last year than all other new launches and that is a true testament to Ariana’s connection with her fans and the beauty of the fragrance she created,” says Joel B. Ronkin, Chief Executive Officer of LUXE Brands.

Within less than a year, ARIANA GRANDE captured #1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut Yours Truly and also with its 2014 follow-up My Everything.

Yours Truly yielded the game-changing pop smash “The Way” featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling My Everything garnered a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and spawned the six times-platinum hit “Problem.” Upon the single’s release, ARIANA became “the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week,” while the song ranked as the 5th “highest digital song debut for a female artist” and 9th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at #1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks. During release week, My Everything was #1 on Spotify as ARIANA personally rose to #1 on Billboard‘s Artists 100 chart. She also became the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs—”Problem,” “Break Free” featuring Zedd, and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. “Bang Bang” went platinum and was Grammy-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” By the end of the year, she landed four songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, the most of any artist in 2014 ARIANA has enjoyed five Hot 100 Top 10 smashes.

In 2013, she was named “Best New Artist” at the American Music Awards. Other accolades followed with ARIANA winning “Favorite Breakout Artist” at the People’s Choice Awards 2014, the “Young Influencer Award” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the “Radio Disney Chart Topper Award,” “Choice Female Artist” and “Choice Single” “Problem” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and more.
