Smell Like GIRL? Pharrell Preps Fragrance For Men and Women, Plus ‘Happy’ Retains Hot 100 No.1

What does GIRL smell like? We'll soon find out as Pharrell Williams is teaming up with Japanese fashion label Comme Des Garcons to create a fragrance.

"As one of my favorite designers once said, 'Comme des Garçons is your favorite designers' favorite designer…the top of the top, the best of the best," Williams told Women's Wear Daily. "I am so honored to be working with Comme des Garçons and cherish the education that I've experienced in this collaboration."

GIRL is expected to arrive in stores this Fall.

In related news, Pharrell's hit single, "Happy," has earned its third week atop the Billboard Hot 100.

According to Billboard, the single got a substantial boost from the Oscars and other promotional jaunts and sold 490,000 copies.

"With sales comprising the majority (55%) of its chart points, as they did last week, "Happy" leads the Digital Songs chart for a fourth week with a 19% gain to 490,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As previously reported, the sum is the biggest since Katy Perry's "Roar" debuted with 557,000 on the Aug. 31, 2013, tally. "Happy" posts the 13th-largest sales week ever for a digital song and the eighth-greatest for a non-debuting title," reports Billboard. "Having sold 413,000 downloads in the previous tracking week and 402,000 in the week before that, "Happy" is also the first song to earn three straight weeks of more than 400,000 in sales since "Blurred Lines" did so in the three consecutive weeks last June. (The SoundScan tracking week for this week's Hot 100 began at midnight on Monday, March 3, after the Oscars telecast, so Williams' and Menzel's songs benefit from a full week of post-Awards buzz.)"

"Happy" is featured on Pharrell's album, "GIRL," which is available now.
