A perfume company is claiming that Prince and his music publisher failed to honor a contract to help market a fragrance named for the album “3121.”
The breach-of-contract lawsuit was filed by Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics Inc. in New York. The company says it licensed Prince’s name, likeness and the album title “3121” to market its fragrance.

Revelations says it put $2.5 million into the project and agreed to pay Universal half of net profits from sales of the perfume.
But the lawsuit claims that since the launch of the fragrance in July 2007, Universal and Prince have failed to participate in various promotions for it.
Universal did not immediately return a call for comment. Prince’s music studio in Chanhassen, Minn., did not answer several calls.
