Snooki Claims Perfume Company Ripped Off Her Special Scent
Has Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi been snookered? The reality TV star says a perfume company has stolen the scent of her own self-titled fragrance, “Snooki.”
The pint-sized Jersey mom is suing Excell Brands for $2.4 million, claiming it marketed a fragrance it calls “Snazzy”—something that she says smells like “Snooki” and reeks of a rip-off.
The former "Jersey Shore" star says “Snazzy” is so shameless about its trademark infringement, it even owns up to it on the box -- calling itself "our version of ‘Snooki ‘by Nicole Polizzi."
Snooks now wants a court to order Excell to stop selling “Snazzy” immediately, and she wants millions in damages. Excell has yet to comment publicly on the allegations.
