My Gay Toronto - Bellini's 8 1/2

The sweet scent of success

by Paul Bellini

It seems that all the hot new stars on the gay horizon are being launched from Ru Paul’s Drag Race. Most release dance music or clothing lines but, finally, one brave drag queen has decided to launch her very own fragrance.


Flazeda is the signature fragrance of Pearl, who clawed her way to the Top 3 spot last season. The word ‘flazeda’ was coined by Pearl on the show to describe anything positive. (I suppose I should also mention that Pearl has indeed released a CD of dance music called Pleasure. The clothing line must be just around the corner.)

Pearl became a star on the seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, standing out with wildly creative looks. A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, Pearl got her start in Chicago’s drag scene, where she established herself with an act that was a more conceptual and out-of-the-box style of old school drag, a combination that celebrated both wealthy Hollywood stars and club kids.

Pearl’s Flaz├ęda is available now for pre-order at Xyrena.com/Pearl.  Pearl can be found online at Instagram.com/pearliaison, Twitter.com/pearliaison and Facebook.com/pearldragqueen.
