Ciara and Russell Wilson are getting into the beauty business.
The multi-platinum singer and Seattle Seahawks quarterback have teamed up to launch two new fragrances. Created in partnership with Hampton Beauty, the R&C fragrance duo will be released Nov. 17.
“We wanted our scents to be able to be very strong individually but also be stronger together,” Wilson told WWD.
The perfume bottles wrap around each other and connect via magnet to create a unified structure. The process, which started “in the thick of quarantine,” was a labor of love for the power couple.
“This was something, I can say, made us smile. It gave us something to laugh about,” said Ciara, while Wilson added, “We had several date nights all around fragrance.”
We put a lot of love into the process. Can’t wait for you guys to have it ❤️@DangeRussWilson https://t.co/63qxS4TArR

Ciara’s perfume features pink peppercorn, peony, and sandalwood, while Wilson’s scent combines black tea, lavender, and musk. “I like scents to be distinctive,” Ciara said. “I want it to be memorable. I always think about the feeling that I get when I smell someone that smells so fresh….You remember that scent. It leaves a mark on you.”
“For me, I really wanted to put out something sexy,” Wilson shared. “When you walk in the room, I think you want the man to bring a presence without overdoing it. That’s kind of something I’ve always wanted to feel.”
The R&C fragrance duo will be available exclusively at RandCFragrance.com for $90. A portion of sales will benefit the couple’s Why Not You Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to education, children’s health, and fighting poverty, while empowering today’s youth.
