The country music icon is currently gearing up to unveil a perfume called Dolly - Scent from Above, set to hit shelves next month. "I'm going to hopefully create a scent for the men in my life, too," Dolly revealed when asked by WWD what else she has planned for her beauty line.

"Although Dolly - Scent from Above smells so good, I think the boys will want to wear it."

The star has been actively involved in developing the fragrance line in partnership with the team at Scent Beauty and noted that fans have been begging her to release a perfume for years because she always smells good.

After years of developing Scent from Above, Dolly can't wait to get out there and promote the perfume - and she's even been inspired to record a tune to go along with it.

"I actually wrote a song for it, called Sent From Above. I don't think that Liz Taylor ever wrote songs for her perfume. I think I'll have a fun time promoting it and enjoy getting out there and talking about it. I really want to see how people respond to it," she said.

The range also includes a body cream and body mist and will be available to buy from Walmart, Scent Beauty's website, and an Instagram store, with prices ranging from $40 (R570) to $65 (R900).

Dolly is also planning to develop lines of wigs, accessories and make-up in the future.
