"It's always exciting to be able to reveal another facet of my personality through Luscious Pink," said Mariah. "The development of the scent coupled with the fun and flirtatious interactive design competition gave me an opportunity to interact with my fans, which I always love to do, and at the same time raise money for an extremely important cause that affects all women around the world."
"It's an honor to work with Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R), an organization that has helped save so many lives with continuous funding and research for breast cancer awareness," said Mariah.

The best-selling female and solo artist of all time -- whose eighteen #1 singles rival all but The Beatles -- Mariah Carey has made an indelible impact on the global music industry and audiences everywhere. Blessed with a stunning five-octave range and signature vocal abilities, the singularly talented superstar continues to reach new heights of artistic growth and popularity. As a singer and songwriter, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award and the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium," to name but a few honors.
Apart from her musical achievements, Mariah Carey has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart. They include Save the Music, The National Adoption Center and The Make-A-Wish Foundation, which recently bestowed its 2006 Wish Icon Award upon her, permanently rechristening it the Mariah Carey Wish Icon Award. Her active involvement with the Fresh Air Fund resulted in Camp Mariah, the Fund's first camp named in honor of an individual. Mariah Carey's impact transcends the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large.
