From 'The Voice' to The Scent: Maroon 5's Levine launching men's and women's fragrances

While fans eagerly await debut perfume releases from Lady Gaga and Madonna, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is the latest pop star to announce a fragrance launch.

Levine, who is also a mentor on US reality talent show The Voice, will unveil his debut scent, 222 by Adam Levine, in May 2013, with varieties available for both men and women.

According to a release, the scent will reflect his "personality and style," although details on the juice are yet to be divulged.

Levine is working with ID Perfumes on the scent, a division of Adrenalina Inc., which developed Katy Perry's debut perfume Purr by Katy Perry and also handles Selena Gomez's fragrance license.

The men's and women's scents are expected to be sold in department and specialty stores in the US, with expansion anticipated in destinations including South America, Europe and the Middle East.

Levine's fellow The Voice coach Christina Aguilera already boasts a perfume empire, with scents including Secret Potion and Royal Desire. Could co-mentors Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton be the next musicians to venture into the realm?

Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert has previously expressed her interest in a signature scent, so perhaps a husband and wife team up like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Soul2Soul could happen in the future.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
