Celebrities and the Perfume They Wear

2016-02-25-Blog

Ever wonder what perfume your favorite celebrity is wearing? Perfume is an accessory that is often forgot, but is vital for completing a look or complimenting a personality. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite stars ‘fumes of choice, including two of this years Oscars nominees! We hope that this list can help you on your journey to finding your own ‘fume of choice!

Jennifer Lawrence - Miss Dior

Miss Dior by Christian Dior

Jennifer Lawrence wows us again by playing the role of Joy Mangano, in the film Joy, and is in the running for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Academy Awards this year. She claims that her signature scent is the aroma of red wine (being the Cabernet lover that she is). Although, we’ve heard many rumors that she often wears Miss Dior, as she is also the face of the fragrance. Miss Dior is a classy and feminine fragrance featuring notes of mandarin, jasmine, rose, patchouli and musk.

Bvlgari Black - Angelina Jolie

Bvlgari Black by Bvlgari

Angeline Jolie’s favorite ‘fume is said to be Blvgari Black. We think that this fragrance fits Jolie perfectly! It is unique, sexy, dark and glamorous, much like many of the roles that Jolie stars in. It has the strangest mix of accords from leather to animalic to green notes, yet it blends into perfection. This fragrance starts off with green tea, rose, and bergamot. The heart is creamy with cedar, sandalwood and jasmine. Then comes the voluptuous, rich base of amber, leather, oakmoss, musk and vanilla. This scent screams Jolie!

Shalimar - Meryl Streep

Shalimar Parfum Initial by Guerlain

Meryl Streep is said to be a fan of fragrances by Shalimar, which isn’t a big surprise to us either. Shalimar fragrances tend to be full of elegance, class, femininity and warmth. Shalimar scents come with an acquired taste and are usually aimed towards a more classic fragrance generation. Shalimar’s Parfum Initial features a composition that is powdery, airy, woody and sweet. It opens fresh and green and develops into a heart of iris, vetiver and patchouli. The dry down is sweet and creamy with vanilla, tonka bean, caramel and soft musk.

Black Orchid

Black Orchid by Tom Ford

Being both a model and an actor, Eddie Redmayne has been popping up in many places and has even been nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in The Danish Girl. When asked about his fragrance by Telegraph, he states, “I spent the night at my parents’ house recently and in my old cupboard was some Hugo Boss aftershave. The moment I sprayed, it it took me straight back to being 15 years old and going on a date. I’m astounded any girl came close to me because I must have stunk. Now I wear Tom Ford Black Orchid.” Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is stylish and bold with its sweet, warm and spicy aroma.

Nicole Kidman - Olene

Olene by Diptyque

Through our research, we’ve found that Nicole Kidman is a lover of niche fragrances. One niche scent that she is fond of, in particular, is Olene by Diptyque. Olene features a crisp and clean bouquet of white florals. We can definitely see Kidman as a floral lover, can’t you? Olene starts with honeysuckle and narcissus, then developing into more florals of wisteria and jasmine. The base features even more white floral notes and also a hint of green for a fresh, dewy touch.

A few other fragrances that you can find celebrities wearing are:

Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche (Bradley Cooper)

Amarige by Givenchy (Diana Ross)

Pure Poison by Dior (Emma Roberts)

Dirt by Demeter (Kate Moss)

Orange Blossom by Jo Malone (Katie Holmes)

Spring Flower by Creed (Lana Del Rey)
