Inspire was Christina Aguilera's fourth Women's fragrance to be released worldwide, however only the first perfume to be released from the singer-songwriter in the United States. The perfume was created with Procter & Gamble and endorsed with Aguilera. The tagline for the fragrance was "Follow Your Inspiration". The perfume was released in early September 2008 throughout the world.

Information[edit]

Aguilera mentioned in an interview that this fragrance was supposed to give off "a modern take on the Pop Art era" as well as a reflection of “the energy and excitement” of Tokyo, Japan.[2]

The press release of the perfume stated:

Christina Aguilera Inspire brings a little of her self-assured confidence and sexiness to every woman's life. The fragrance encapsulates everything that Christina Aguilera is with a scent that shows a lady who wants to stand out from the crowd and inspire others to strive for their dreams. The femininity of the fragrance celebrates the female form and helps women feel sexier and proud of who they are. This beautiful, sexy and distinctive young fragrance perfectly captures the elements that make Christina a superstar today, which means that her fans will not be disappointed with the fragrance.

The fragrance became Aguilera's second number one selling perfume in both the United Kingdom and Germany over the 2008 Christmas period.

The advertisements created for the fragrance were directed by David LaChapelle and feature Aguilera walking through a pop-art inspired Tokyo at night time using the element of a bubble that takes Aguilera out from the dark and into a colourful art-inspired future.
