Canadian-born country singing sensation, Shania Twain, made a visit to Toronto today to promote her debut fragrance, Shania by Stetson. On a whirlwind visit, Shania dropped by CityLine to spend an hour with host Marilyn Denis and then headed off to a downtown Toronto hotel to introduce the fragrance to the media.

Shania was involved in every aspect of the development of the fragrance from the packaging to the scent and the advertising campaign. The process began over a year ago when she met with the team to develop the scent. Shania wanted the fragrance to reflect her love of natural scents and incorporate some of her favourite scents including grapefruit, roses and "fresh outdoor air".

Shania will appear on the November 24th episode of The Apprentice in which the two teams were entrusted with the task of creating a marketing campaign for the fragrance.

Next on her itinerary, Shania will receive this country's highest honour for lifetime achievement when she is invested as an officer of the Order of Canada during a ceremony in Ottawa on Friday, November 18th.

Marketed and distributed by Coty Canada, Shania by Stetson is available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. 30 ml Eau de Toilette Spray ($27.00 SRP), 50 ml Eau de Toilette Spray ($36.00 SRP), 200 ml Body Lotion ($12.00 SRP).
