Elizabeth Taylor wasn't the first star to launch her own fragrance, but she was certainly the most successful one. Her debut scent, 1987's Passion, was an instant best seller; White Diamonds, launched in 1991, remains among the most popular today.
After Passion's launch, Taylor was hit with a lawsuit from Annick Goutal, which also had a scent called Passion. A judge ordered the Taylor scent be removed from 55 stores.
In 1991, she starred in a 2:45 commercial for White Diamonds as part of a $20 million advertising campaign. This shorter version appeared on television.
