Elizabeth Arden, a household name and cosmetics empire, has somehow been kicked to the beauty market’s proverbial curb because of — wait for it — Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.

The brand, which is also known for its fragrances, apparently can’t sell Biebs and Swift’s scents; sadly, few want to smell like either of them.

The company’s quarterly sales had the steepest drop in a decade, 28.4 percent, and claimed that their poor performance would continue for the next six months, which then rippled to the value of their trading shares, reports the Chicago Tribune.
