Pregnancy inspired Dion's scent

Celine Dion's new perfume was inspired by her pregnancy.

The 'Think Twice' singer - who already has a nine-year-old son Rene-Charles and will give birth to twin boys later this year - admitted she bases her fragrances on what is going on in her personal life as it gives her the inspiration she needs.

Celine - who will release her eight fragrance Pure Brilliance this month - said of the scent: "Probably because I'm carrying babies and I've been on vacation and I'm breathing great beach air and I'm with my family, it's all about vacation and life."

The star says she loves perfume because it reminds her of when she was first dating her now-husband Rene Angelil.

She told People magazine: "I remember buying my future husband a perfume that he was wearing at the time and I bought myself the same one to spray my pillow with his scent, and I was almost spraying my body with it. It was like I wanted to carry his scent as well."

While pregnancy may affect her choice of perfume, Celine says it hasn't changed her sense of fashion as she still wears the same things.

She said: "Pregnant or not, one of my favourite things is a tunic. You can wear it with flat shoes, with heels if you want to, even barefoot at the beach. It's brilliant."
