AceShowbiz - Michelle Pfeiffer has finally realised her dream of releasing a fragrance collection at the age of 60.
The actress is taking on an exciting new venture outside of the film world after unveiling a collection of five scents, called Henry Rose, and she couldn't be more thrilled to finally share the perfume line with the world.
During a new interview with InStyle magazine, Michelle reveals she had been considering the idea for decades, after she began raising children.
"When the kids were young, I began to look at the world in a different way," she tells the publication. "I started reading labels and looking at ingredients lists in a way I hadn't done before. That opened my eyes. I found myself looking for a fragrance I could feel good about putting on my body and that smelled amazing."

After a self-imposed hiatus from the screen, @MichellePfeifferOfficial is decidedly back in the spotlight — and on the cover of our next March subscriber issue. And not only is she back, but she’s even joined social media. “It’s been terrifying for me, honestly. I’ve spent my entire life avoiding, doing as little as possible, in terms of exposure — literally the least that I could get away with as an actress,” she tells @robertjhaskell. “So I’m dipping my toe in....But in a weird way, I’m kind of excited about it.” More about the beloved actress and her upcoming projects at the link in bio. | Photographed by @benhassett; Styled by @juliavonboehm
"Those two things were difficult to find, so I decided I was going to see if I could develop a fragrance that would raise the bar on both quality and safety. I didn't realise what a challenge I had set out for myself, which is typical of me."
The exciting new release doesn't mean she has lost her passion for acting - the star returned to film and TV last year (2017) after taking a five year hiatus, appearing in "mother!", "Murder on the Orient Express" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp". She also appeared on the small screen in "The Wizard of Lies", a role which earned her an Emmy nomination. And she admits running a perfume brand while taking on a series of roles has not been easy.
"Starting a business at the same time as I started working again... I'm not complaining," she says. "It's a high-class problem. It's better to feel as if there's not enough time in a day than to wake up wondering how you're going to fill it."
