Exclusive: Dolly Parton dishes on her latest fragrance collection and why she’s passionate about ‘Creating things that bring people joy’

It’s no secret that Dolly Parton is a busy lady, and in two weeks — mark your calendars for December 3rd and 4th — she’ll also be on HSN to share a little of herself via a new fragrance collaboration called Smoky Mountain Eau de Parfum Spray ($60).

Comprised of a woody floral with notes of tiger orchid, warm tonka and cashmere woods, the perfume is driven by Parton’s very personal story, which she describes as coming “straight from her front porch in the Smoky Mountains.”

“I’m so happy about the embrace we had when we launched Scent From Above last year,” she says. “This success has allowed me to experiment with new fragrances and bring different, inspiring scents to the world with the Front Porch collection, which includes my Smoky Mountain scent.

And in true Dolly style, there’s a lot of “making people happy” attached to the launch. “Nothing excites me more than creating something that brings joy to people. And with this year’s new releases, I’ve drawn on many memories from my youth to create a collection that I believe is truly special.”
