Bieber and Gomez, 18, went completely public with their romance at the Billboard Music Awards show in Las Vegas – sharing kisses and hugs in the audience.

Talking about the fragrance recently, Bieber told WWD: “Let’s be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy!

“I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.”
