Dolly went on to say that Sent From Above was ‘not one of those perfumes that when you wake up in the middle of the night — it’s too strong, it almost keeps you awake.
‘I like it to smell soft and feminine,’ she added. ‘But I like it to last too. I like it to be where it’s like, “Ooh, what is that?” I love that.
‘I like it to smell just like something you would want to wear. This one … you feel like you’re laying on a cloud. It smells good!’
The Steel Magnolias star revealed that she has never had a signature scent and said that she layers several perfumes.

Parton also discussed her trademark over the top style, saying, ‘I’ve always been gaudy.’
She continued, ‘I have always loved makeup, hair, clothes. I love flashy things. I always joke about it, when they say, “Less is more.” I say, “That’s not true in my case. I can’t get enough of anything.”‘
However, Dolly acknowledged that her style has evolved over the course of her decades-long career.
‘I think my look has kind of softened through the years, only because I’m lucky enough to have wonderful people help me out with my clothes or with my makeup or with hair’ — but I’m still always going to be over the line.’
