This is what it smells like when doves cry

Y'all should know by now I can't let a Prince-related news item go unmentioned. NME reports:
Prince is set to launch his own perfume.

The name of the fragrance, 3121, is also the name of his last studio album, which was released in 2006.

According to official site, it's described as "a kaleidoscope of rich florals...Xquisite (sic), Mysterious, Xotic (sic)".

The perfume is set to go on sale on July 7...

As previously reported Prince will perform in London this summer for 21 nights, kicking off with seven shows at the 02 Arena on August 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11 and 14 as part of the Earth Tour.

Only true fanatics like me will know this is not Prince's first foray into the world of fragrance. In 1995 he released Get Wild, a perfume named after his New Power Generation single. (You can hear it here.) Apparently the perfume stunk to high heaven but it's becoming a collector's item.
