    Rihanna’s favourite perfume

    We don’t have to look very far to search for Rihanna’s favourite perfume or latest performance.

    Google anything to do with the superstar and of late, the first video that pops up is her incredible performance on the Super Bowl on 12th February 2023.

    Looking absolutely stunning in a pillar box red jumpsuit and heavily pregnant with her second child, we watch the hugely successful performance by the Barbadian singer.

    Every social platform you visit will show the performer strutting her stuff to a mash up selection of her most successful tunes to date.

    Watch Rihanna at the Super Bowl

     

     

     

    There won’t be many artists who can get away with such a performance on the Super Bowl as Rihanna has pulled off.

    Being away from the limelight for the past four years, she certainly made an amazing return to the stage during the halftime show.

    As she began her performance, suspended on a high platform, Rihanna started the show with a medley of hits such as We Found Love and Rude Boy.

    With more than 100 back up dancers, wearing white hooded jumpsuits and sunglasses, the dancers themselves were superb.

    Every dancer was in unison, every move showcasing every line of the song that she was singing, and it was near impossible to not watch over and over again, just to revisit such a unique performance.

    Even the deaf sign language interpreter, Justina Miles, got recognition as she danced and signed her way through the chart topping tunes and went viral on social media with her own enthusiastic performance.

    Rihanna would be forgiven for not jumping about the stage as she would normally do and still managed to look elegant, sexy and sophisticated with her subtle dance moves and powerful vocals.

    Her back up dancers left no room for anyone to notice that the singing sensation’s moves were more subtle.

    A 13 minute fast paced dancing and top 10 hits, gave the performance a world record for the most watched Super Bowl performance in history as it reached 118.7 million views.

    That’ll take some beating!

    The Queen of pop’s performance actually had more viewers than the game itself.

    Her performance has been recreated in many forms by young and old on platforms such as TikTok and Instagram reels and are just as entertaining to watch and admire the skill of copying such fast moves and sultry vibes from the pop legend.

    The unique dance moves, created by choreographer, Parris Goebel, A New Zealand singer, director and actress was seen being rehearsed by over 14 million people on TikTok with Rihanna’s backup dancers the Royal family Dance Crew.

    A brief insight into the singers history

    Rihanna, born Robin Rihanna Fenty on February 20th 1988, is a singer, songwriter, fashion designer, and actress.

    The pop singer is one of the bestselling female artist of all time, selling over 215 million records around the world.

    Rihanna has also launched the cosmetics brand Fenty beauty, has appeared in several major acting roles and the fashion world, that saw her design clothing from lingerie, to sports wear and leather goods.

    Rihanna-Reb’l Fleur

    In August 2011, the superstar released her first fragrance called Reb’l Fleur to the United Kingdom.

    With the very fitting tagline of ‘Bad Feels So Good‘, Rihanna creates a beautiful scent in a uniquely designed bottle.

    According to online sources, her grandmother used to call her ‘Rebel Flower‘ and so she began layering fragrance notes to create a scent that spoke a thousand words and said “Rihanna was here”.

    With a beautiful selection of fragrance notes, the bottle design alone reminds me of the Eiffel Tower as it tapers inwards to form a vertical shaped bottle.

    More and more celebrities are creating their own fragrances, as well as endorsing other brands.

    It may come as a surprise though but there are many celebrities who don’t actually wear the perfume they endorse.

    Some will go for a reasonably priced scent whilst others have more of an expensive taste.

    Kilian-Love, Don’t Be Shy

    Besides endorsing her own fragrance, Rihanna has another favourite scent that she loves to wear and get heads turning.

    Love by Kilian with a tagline ‘Don’t Be Shy‘ seems to fit perfectly for such a carefree, creative and talented star.

    If you ever wanted to smell as good as a pop star, then this is the fragrance for you.

    Purchase Kilian-Love on Ebay

    Launched in 2007, it may not be a fragrance that you have heard of before, but it certainly packs a punch when other celebrities comment on how good Rihanna smells when wearing it.

    It possibly goes without saying that it is not the most affordable perfume on the market, but do you expect anything less from Rihanna’s taste in designer perfume ?

    Fragrance notes 

    Top notes: pink pepper, bergamot, neroli and coriander

    Middle notes: jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, Iris, rose.

    Base notes: vanilla, sugar, musk, caramel, civet, and labdanum

    The French perfume is very sweet for those that love this type of fragrance and has a feminine but simplistic bottle with a gold top and is also refillable.

    Something that Kilian wanted to introduce and sustain with his belief that “True luxury should last forever”.

     

    Kilian Hennessy wanted to launch a brand that lifted the perfume industry back to how it first began in the late 19th and early 20th century.

    He added his own twist and bought his own memories to life in each bottle.

    Other Kilian perfumes available on eBay

    The master of such scents believes that perfume isn’t only for those who wear it to be noticed or seduced, but also as a protective layer that we can wear to shield us from the outside world.

    Over the years, he has created a simplistic line of fragrances that are strong, long-lasting, noticeable and speak power on their first spray.

    Conclusion: if you want to smell like a superstar and have heads turning like Rihanna, try a sample of the perfume before you purchase a bottle.

    Julia Roberts’ favourite perfume

    Whenever we hear someone mention Julia Roberts, we perhaps think of some of her most iconic films that she has played the leading role.

    I personally always think of Pretty Woman. The iconic film that had us all believing that fairy tales do come true.

    The American actress has been the face of Lancôme since 2012 and is a wearer of the famous La Vie Est Belle alongside another favourite perfume, Spring Flower by Creed.

     

    A brief insight into the actors’ history

    Born in 1967, to parents who had both worked in showbiz and were talented actors, with Julia Roberts’ mother being an acting coach and the couple met during their performance in the play George Washington Slept Here back in 1955.

    Although the Hollywood actor started her career in the late 80s, she became a household name when she headlined alongside her co-star Richard Gere in the worldwide box office hit Pretty Woman. 

    Since then, she has starred in many successful box office hits such as My Best Friend’s Wedding and Notting Hill. Another two fantastic films that have us laughing and crying.

    The list is endless for her lucrative appearances in many films and has seen her play a variety of characters within her role of comedy and drama films.

    Julia Roberts signed a deal with Lancôme in 2010 which began with her being the face of their cosmetics line.
    The fresh-faced beauty has caught the eye of both men and women over the years as her gorgeous looks never seem to age.

    She has been Lancôme’s global ambassador ever since.

    Julia Roberts’ favourite perfume

    Launched in 2012, La Vie Est Belle eau de parfum, translated from French meaning “life is beautiful ” is one of those fragrances that not only lasts a long time on the skin but has a lasting impression.

    Although it was created for women to wear to the office or a lunch meeting and is most suitable for the daytime, it certainly makes heads turn with its gorgeous selection of fragrance notes.

    Top notes : pear, black current

    Middle notes : orange blossom, jasmine

    Base notes : praline, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean

    It’s easy to see why this perfume is so popular.

    Having such beautiful fresh fragrance notes, this bottle captures the femininity and grace that every women strives for.

    Its elegance and charm in a simplistic bottle continues a natural beauty and happy journey for every purchaser.

    With silver leaves around the neck of the bottle, it almost reminds me of a delicate silk scarf that women used to wear in the 1950’s.

    The delicate material offering elegance, poise and charm as many were worn as a glamour accessory.

    Such iconic actresses, such as Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor were known for the delicate material draped around their neck.

    Roberts is the perfect match for such an iconic fragrance that omits femininity, elegance and perfection.

    The video, which is set in Paris, shows the radiant star having a wonderful time surrounded by female friends as she boards a boat and sails along the river.

    With soft music playing, lots of smiles and a glistening Eiffel Tower in the distance, the perfect mood is created for a wonderful atmosphere to match this popular scent.

    On eBay, they have a lovely body set that includes a 50ml body lotion, a bottle of perfume and a mascara.

    Zendaya’s favourite perfume

    With so many celebrities endorsing perfumes, it’s one of the reasons why such products sell so well. The fragrance world is growing each year and another celebrity that we’re keen to learn about is Zendaya.

    Zendaya’s favourite fragrance is Lancôme Idole and it’s easy to see why, so who is she?

     

    A brief insight into the actress/singers’ history

    The world is full of beautiful women, and this American actress, dancer and singer is no exception.

    At the age of 27,( born in 1996) she has the world at her feet. She has received Golden Globe awards and two Primetime Emmy awards. Zendaya Marée Stoermer Coleman began her career as a back – up dancer and a child model for Macy’s Melvyn’s and Old Navy.

    She went on and made her television debut in 2010, starring in the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up and has featured in several films since then.

    Zendaya’s favourite perfume

     

    Her feature film debut came in 2017 playing alongside her current partner, Tom Holland in the film Spider-Man : homecoming.

     

    Just one of the fantastic Marvel films that both myself and my two sons have enjoyed watching. She also starred in the films’ sequels.

    Marvel film-Spiderman

    Another popular film, based on a true story,The Greatest Showman sees Zendaya portraying a trapeze artist who falls in love.

    The film was a massive hit when it was released in 2017 and is still very much watched today.

    Zendaya’s talent doesn’t stop there though. She has also taken the journey into the music world with her delicate vocals on the hit record Rewrite The Stars from the same film/musical.

    Her biggest success as a musician, collaborating with Zac Efron. A song that reached the top 20 charts.

    Lancôme Idole

    This is a popular scent from the Lancôme range of fragrances. Being a fairly strong eau de parfum that lasts for around eight hours, a light spray is recommended so as not to overwhelm.

    Any fragrance should be subtle on the skin.

    Lancôme Idole was created in 2019 with a bottle that shows femininity, class and simplicity.

    This female scent doesn’t necessarily need lots of sparkle and glamour to be popular.

    After all, we don’t wear the bottle. It’s the scent that matters.

    On its first spray, this fragrance gives an instant hit of rose, musk and fruit notes.

    It is a very womanly fragrance and has a strong kick to it. As the fragrance settles, there’s a definite scent of Pink Pepper and Bergamont.

    The White Mask and Cedar are very noticeable as the base notes come through later on.


    It has a very clean scent with such popular fragrance notes.

    I’m sure it will be a hit for many women who like to make a statement yet still have that touch of class and summer vibe.

    As the name suggests ‘Idole‘ brings the fresh fragrance to life for any women who dares to be outspoken, strong and empowered.

    I personally would say that it is a more suitable scent for an evening out as opposed to daytime perfume.

    It might be a little too heavy for perhaps an office or retail shop working environment.

    Lancôme know how to create a variety of scents. When we compare this one with La Vie Est Belle, there is a noticeable difference as the latter is a much sweeter and more versatile fragrance.

    related article: The best perfume for a wedding day

    That said, there are plenty of women who love strong scents and can carry them off well without being overpowering.

    There are lots of positive reviews online from customers who have bought this classic scent.

    Beautiful, long-lasting and elegant ” says one. “Perfect for the confident women”

    Lasts all day and smells so fresh and sexy” said another.

    This fragrance also comes in a refillable bottle that can be taken to selected refill points of sale so you will never have to throw your bottle away.

    Zendaya is Lancôme’s youngest endorser for the company and is not only a wearer of their fragrance but also the face of Lancôme Lash Idole mascara.

     

    Fragrance notes in Lancôme Idole

    Top notes: pear, bergamot, pink pepper.

    Middle notes: rose, Jasmine.

    Bass notes: white musk, vanilla, patchouli, cedar

     

    With such a wonderful selection of fragrance notes, Lancôme has captured the perfect scent and combined the perfect ingredients that gives this perfume its uniqueness.

    Online places such as eBay have a great selection of different sized bottles and strengths to match the individual.

    Johnny Depp fragrance

    Whenever we see an advert for Sauvage by Christian Dior, we instantly know without even looking up at the TV screen, that it’s a Johnny Depp fragrance.

    Dior and Depp teamed up back in 2015, when Sauvage was first launched. It was a huge fragrance back then and still is to this day.

    Watch the advert on You tube

    With a heavy-metal theme, as soon as the advert for this fragrance starts and Johnny Depp playing the guitar, the music sets the scene for a dusty and solitary drive to the dry heat and barren surroundings of the desert.

    Depp’s husky voice can be heard over the scene as he tells the story of looking for something that he cannot see but can feel.

    Johnny Depp fragrance

    He removes a spade from the boot of his car and approaches a deserted area, under the watchful eye of a wolf standing proud on the roof of the Dodge Challenger.

    He then starts to dig a hole in the sand and proceeds to remove his necklace and bracelets and drops them into the hole.

    Depp has always come across as a mysterious and intriguing actor that tends to play certain parts in films where he can almost hide behind his own persona.

    Being the face and a wearer of one of the most iconic Dior colognes to date, Depp reflects the fragrance perfectly when we learn of the perfume notes behind this classic men’s scent.

    Fragrance notes :

    Top notes: pepper, Calabrian bergamot

    Middle notes : Sichuan Pepper, lavender, pink pepper, vetiver, geranium, patchouli, elemi

    Base notes : Ambroxan, labdanum, cedar

     

    Johnny Depp fragrance
    Dior

     

     

    A brief insight into the actors’ history

    Born John Christopher Depp II, Depp first appeared on our screens in the film A Nightmare on Elm street in 1984.

    One that I have to admit I have never watched as I don’t like horror films! In fact, I don’t like anything scary on screen!

    The first I really knew of this unique actor was Johnny’s incredible role in the romantic fantasy film Edward Scissorhands in 1990. A film that is much more suitable for my eyes and mind.

    Johnny Depp fragrance
    Edward Scissorhands

    He almost seems to be one of those actors that you never really get to see what he truly looks like.

    He has played a few unusual characters that make his appearance look contrasting from his actual features.

    Especially for films such as Edward Scissorhands and Alice In Wonderland.

    Johnny Depp fragrance
    Alice In Wonderland

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    In Edward Scissorhands, a young Depp’s face was mysteriously hidden behind pale and scarred skin and dark circles around his eyes.

    The character who wanted to touch but couldn’t and despite looking scary and weird, was indeed a gentle man who fell in love.

    15 years later I am then watching his performance in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory in 2005.

     

    Another film that captures Depp in a different light once again as he portrays a candy maker who guides children around a sweet factory.

    In a bid to find a child who avoids all the temptations that a sweet factory brings, he indeed finds a good person who passes the test to become an heir to the factory business and ‘winning’ the golden ticket.

    Having many a Golden Globe Award, academy and BAFA awards, Depp is also a keen musician.

    His mother bought him a guitar at the age of 12 and he started playing in a few bands.

     

     

    He clearly had talent as when he attempted to return to school two weeks after he had dropped out, the principal saw potential and told him to continue to follow his dream of becoming a musician.

    Sauvage by Dior is a gorgeous and very masculine Fougere scent that instantly smells of your classic scented aftershave.

    The type that you recognise as soon as you walk past a male that’s wearing it. The strong and bold notes reveal instant sex appeal and it’s definitely a head turner.

    Even after its first spray, the initial pepper and Calabrian bergamot scent lingers and we’re left with a crisp, clean and welcoming cedar and lavender sillage.

    It’s a very appealing, a touch fruity and definitely wearable scent.

    Why do we love Sauvage so much?

    Dior has created a sophisticated scent in a clean, and simple styled bottle.

    There’s no fancy design or cap to grab our attention to purchase on first sight.

    It only takes a sniff of this wonderful scent to have men and women falling in love with the iconic fragrance.

    Dior wanted a scent that matched the scene of nature, earth and have a distinctive yet popular scent.

    Sauvage ‘ is a French word that means ‘wild’ or ‘unspoiled’ and refers to nature and animals.

    If we use the word to describe a person, the meaning is totally different and refers to someone being ‘unsociable’ or ‘fierce’.

    There’s definitely nothing fierce or unsociable about this fragrance. Quite the opposite.

    Not a bad price either for a designer fragrance. It’s one that won’t break the bank.

    There are samples available on eBay which is great to have the option of trying before a purchase.

    Harry Styles’ favourite fragrances

    Aah… Harry Styles. Who hasn’t fallen in love with the 29-year old charismatic pop star? He has certainly become the man of the moment of 2022/2023.

    With three Grammys and six BRIT Awards to be proud of during his career as a solo artist, we’re curious to find out what Harry Styles’ favourite fragrances are.

     

    A brief insight to the pop singers’ history

    Harry styles first showed up on our screens as a curly haired 16-year-old contestant on The X Factor back in 2010.

    He was formed as part of the hugely successful pop group One Direction, with Liam, Niall, Louis and Zayn, after the judges decided that he lacked experience to become a solo artist.

    After the huge success of one of the biggest boy bands in the world, Styles embarked on his own successful career as a solo artist in 2016 and has seen the past 13 years grow into the huge success that he is today.

    With sell out concerts, film debuts and an endless stream of pop/soft rock to be proud of, Harry has become an endearing, humorous and stylish icon that young and old alike follow.

    There seems to be no stopping the charming and entertaining lad from Worcestershire, England, who first began his music career as the lead singer of a band called White Eskimo during his school years, alongside working part-time at a bakery in Holmes Chapel.

    After winning seven Brit awards, releasing countless numbers of top charting music, the One Direction group went on hiatus in 2016.

    Harry Styles favourite fragrances

    Harry has turned into a style icon that sees him wearing the likes of Gucci, and Louis Vuitton clothing.

    Wearing nail polish, flowery/glitter blouses and shirts has always been a talking point for many journalists and interviewers.

    Styles says the reason he wears unique clothing is that he feels it “looks cool “ and we have to agree.

    There aren’t many males celebrities that can carry off such flamboyant outfits that somehow look better on him than on women!

    Fans around the globe love him no matter what and he enjoys the freedom of being able to wear what he likes.

    After all, it shouldn’t be about what other people think, right ?

    When it comes to style, Harry certainly stands out in a field of his own.

    From the designer clothing, the most talked about trademark floppy hairstyle, cheeky charm and a great choice of designer fragrances to wear, it’s no wonder why people have fallen in love with him.

    Many celebrities have a signature fragrance and Harry is no exception.

    The face of the Gucci campaign, sees Styles signature scent Memoire D’une Odeur by Gucci released in 2019.

    A gender neutral fragrance with its simplistic designed bottle, it balances well to match a scent that is suitable for both men and women.

    Harry already had this one as a favourite scent before becoming the face behind the fragrance campaign.

    GUCCI MEMOIRE D’UNE ODEUR 100ML EDP SPRAY on eBay 

     

    Its clean, almost Ancient Greek style pillar and mint green glass bottle shows that Gucci wanted to keep this fragrance neutral yet have enough of an impact for both gender.

    Something that has become very popular in the fragrance world over the past few years.

    Anything goes nowadays.

    The more catchy and flamboyant an artist is, the more they seem to create positive attention and a sense of freedom for others to do the same.

     

    Harry Styles was chosen to be the face of Memoire D’une Odeur due to his way of seizing the day and having a strong family support that give him freedom of expression and a carefree approach.

    Whilst this fragrance may not scream out like many others in the perfume world, it certainly makes an impression.

    The perfect scent to wear during any season and wears well in the heat.

    A suitable daytime fragrance, Memoire D’une Odeur brings us closer to the summer weather yet also fits well as a night time scent for its energetic and fun appeal on a night out.

    The celebrity loves this fragrance so much that he admits that he goes to bed wearing it. “I like a fragrance with some emotion behind it “-Harry styles.

    That’s love!

    Memoire D’une Odeur available in different sizes and strengths on eBay.

    Fragrance notes:

    Top notes: chamomile and bitter almond

    Middle notes: musk, jasmine and Indian jasmine

    Base notes: sandalwood, vanilla and cedar.

     

    Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille

    Another favourite fragrance of Harry’s is Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford.

    Harry Styles favourite fragrances

    A perfume that was created to leave a powerful impression, this scent is also unisex and is the most popular of the Tom Ford collection.

    The tobacco and wood infused scent launched in 2007, is also part of the “As It Was” singers’ collection.

    It’s of little surprise that a world superstar would opt for one of the best-selling luxury fragrances to date.

    It has elegance, seduction, and sophistication all in one bottle and the notes blend seamlessly into one another.

    Tobacco Vanille is a strong, creamy and warm scent and definitely one to spray sparingly so that it doesn’t overpower.

    Its all about making an impression first and then catching the gorgeous scent midway for maximum effect.

     

    This fragrance sits in the oriental family and has notes of spices and vanilla. Although it is a gender neutral perfume, some would say that it is a little too masculine so it’s worth trying a sample before you buy.

    Fragrance notes:

    Top notes: tobacco leaf, spices

    Middle notes: tonka bean, tobacco blossom, vanilla, cacao

    Base notes : dried fruits and woody notes.

     

    Tobacco Vanille is more suitable for wearing during the cold, winter months as it loses its appeal with the heat and sun and is an acquired taste if you love woody and strong fragrances.

    Did you know ?

    FM World sell designer inspired fragrances for men and women.

     

    If you love to smell as good as Harry but can’t stretch to the high price tag of one of his favourites, FM has an inspired version of Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille so why not try our FM906 and see for yourself.

    Celebrities who have their own fragrance

    We already know that many celebrities endorse the designer perfumes but what about the celebrities who have their own fragrance?

    Celebrities earn a percentage of the designer perfumes they endorse and the range is getting bigger each year.

    There will always be the classics such as Chanel no.5 and the La Vie Est Belle perfume advert that appears on our screens every Christmas.

    Many celebrities wear their signature designer perfumes as previously discussed in ‘what perfumes do celebrities wear’.

    Others prefer to wear their own creations.

    Celebrities who have their own perfume

     

    One may see it as a very clever marketing strategy.

    Top celebs who wear their own unique scent are already one step ahead as potential customers shop for the scent that their pop idol or favourite film star is wearing.

    They play a huge part in the perfume industry, no matter who is big at the time and it keeps those who don’t have a current album or film out, in the limelight and earning money.

    We will always be influenced by celebrities. They seem to have that awe about them.

    Even though we don’t know any of them personally ( unless you’re very fortunate to ) their presence on and off social media and TV, keeps us adoring them.

    Perfume is a very personal product and many of us have in the past, or still do, own a designer bottle.

    Celebrities who have their own perfume

    Celebrity influencers

    We see our favourite star on platforms such as Instagram, which has become more popular over the past few years and has overtaken Facebook in popularity.

     

    The more we see what they are doing in their day to day lives, the more we feel some kind of connection to them.

    Jennifer Lopez Perfume

    Wearing a bottle of fragrance that a celebrity has either endorsed or created themselves, make us feel closer to them.

    A spritz of their fragrance from the bottle (that’s hopefully stored correctly), or seeing their face on the packaging of the scent that they have created, takes us one step further into the lives of a celebrity.

    Once celebrities saw the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Jennifer Lopez creating their own scent, others started to jump on board and saw a new profit market to add to their millions.

    As long as the public continue to ‘support’ their favourite artists and TV/ film stars, there will always be a need and a space in the market for new and existing celebrities to create and wear their own beautiful scents.

     

    Let’s take a look at those who wear fragrances that they have played a big part in creating.

     

    Ariana Grande

     

    When you have a name as big as Ariana Grande, it’s no surprise that some of her (7) perfume collection carry the same title as her records.

    With perfumes such as Thank U, Next and God Is A Woman, these scents will be memorable in more ways than one.

    Ariana has created a collection of scents that carry a sweet, girly and playful vibe.

    She clearly has a sweet sense of smell as many of her perfumes contain marshmallow as one of its fragrance notes.

     

    Ariande has a huge following of youngsters so she has cleverly created perfumes that are suitable to a particular young age group.

    Not only that, but her scents are affordable too and make a great gift for a daughter or niece without breaking the bank.

    Every bottle has a very feminine, soft, innocent and young theme to them.

     

    Cloud by Ariana Grande

    Who wouldn’t be on cloud nine with this beautifully designed bottle ‘Cloud’ ?
    Shaped like a cloud that transports to you a higher place, you soon come back down to earth with its sweet and floral notes.
    Vanilla, coconut and praline are the first to reach the nose and with a wonderful combination of bergamot, musk, lavender and pear, this balances out the sweetness to perfection.
    Being such a very sweet scent, it is important not to over spray as it would likely linger for hours on your skin and linger in the air for those around you.

     

    Celebrities who have their own perfume Celebrities who have their own perfume

        Buy Cloud on ebay

    Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande

    Another bottle to grace us with femininity and love is Thank U, Next.
    A clever designed bottle shaped as a heart that’s broken, automatically speaks a thousand lyrics of her popular song.
    As the bottle breaks out of the broken heart, it gives a positive and strong message to the younger generation, that even through heartache, we can still get back to being strong and independent.
    Suitable to wear all year round, we have a wonderful concoction of raspberry, pear, rose petals, musk and macaroon sugar.

    A beautiful combination of sweet scents to re instate the message of love being bittersweet.

                           Buy Thank You, Next on ebay

    God Is A Woman

     

    We already know this, right ?
    Ariana Grande has created a style bottle that is at the other end of the scale with this fragrance.
    A very bold and strong bottle shape to enhance the title and with strong fragrance notes of cedarwood, vanilla and pear, it powerfully hits and is straight to the point.
    Being designed as an eau de parfum, this scent will feel and smell much stronger, so a great choice of bottle and name.

    Britney Spears

    Britney Spears is no stranger to the limelight and has been around since her early days of appearing on The Mickey Mouse Club with the likes of Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
    There is definitely a theme to Britney’s ‘Fantasy‘ perfume range.
    In this collection we have bottles that are shaped like a sphere. Soft edges, colourful and an elegance with a selection of small crystals edged into the bottle.
    There are fragrances in the collection that are suitable for both day and night time wear and all the seasons.

    Island Fantasy by Britney Spears

    Island Fantasy is suitable for daytime and summer with its sweet, citrus and aquatic notes.
    We already get a sense of summer with this perfume, not only for its fragrance notes but also with its green/blue colour bottle.
    Tropical seas with crystal clear water.
    Celebrities who have their own perfume
    The top fragrance notes bring this fragrance to life with watermelon, mandarin, citrus, clementine and red berries.
    Flowers that make up the heart notes include jasmine, violet and freesia and a base of musk to keep the light and delicate feel of summer lingering.
    Although it’s not the most long-lasting or fragrances, this would be ideal for the summer where we don’t want to wear a heavier scent and have the option to re apply during the day.
    This gives just enough scent to keep us smelling fresh during the warmer months or summer holidays.

     

    Sunset Fantasy by Britney Spears

     

    Another bottle of fragrance from the Fantasy range sees this colour bottle almost feeling oriental.

    With its gold, orange and pink vibrancy tones running through it, we get a real feel for places abroad.

    Celebrities who have their own perfume

     

    Very much a summer fragrance with sweet, citrus, vanilla and fruity notes.

    With a fragrance scent that is almost in keeping to the same theme as the bottle design itself, we have sweet and fruity scents as the top notes of Italian Mandarin, apple, grapefruit break through.

    Another fragrance that you wouldn’t particularly buy for its longevity but it certainly has a mixture of fruits from plants.

    Raspberry leaf and orange blossom balance out the peach fruit nicely.

    An unusual choice of base note being milk mousse. We don’t often experience this in perfumes but it works well with the vanilla, sandalwood, amber and Australian sandalwood.

     

    Mariah Carey

     

    Mariah Carey is hugely known for her amazing vocals, big personality and diva status.
    A once shy looking young lady who first adorned our screens, Mariah has shown the world that she is here to make a huge impact.
    Her aim? To give joy to others with her incredible song lyrics, shatter a few glasses with her vocal range, I’m sure, and create a beautiful scent for equally independent women.

     

     

    M by Mariah Carey

    M by Mariah Carey shows a very elegant purple based bottle, with the lid in the shape of a butterfly- one can assume to fit in nicely with her album Butterfly, which was released in 1997.
    This fragrance is an amber floral scent and was launched in 2007.
    Sitting in the oriental family of notes, M by Mariah Carey captures the romance and elegance with its sweet top notes of marshmallow and sea water.
    It has unusual heart notes of gardenia and tiare flower and more familiar base notes of patchouli, amber and incense.
    Celebrities who have their own fragrance
    Some would think that the marshmallow would be a little too overpowering but although it stays with you, it is blended and balanced well with the heart and base notes to leave a gorgeous scented perfume.

    Halle Berry

    Halle Berry began her career as a model. It’s easy to see why with her natural beauty.

    Since then, the American Oscar winning actress has gone on to play parts in many Hollywood films and her latest venture sees her following in the footsteps of so many other celebrities embracing the perfume world.

     

     

    Halle by Halle Berry

    The 2009 bottle is as simplistic as its name-Halle by Halle Berry.
    Stylish, gold and elegantly shaped, Halle has created a sensual fragrance with a delightful cocktail of beautiful perfume notes.
    Based in the floral family, Halle has top notes of pear blossom, fig leaf and Sicilian bergamot.
    An unusual mix of heart notes- mimosa, freesia and hibiscus, finished off nicely with amber, cashmeran, olibanum, white musk and driftwood.
    Celebrities who have their own perfume

     

    Buy Halle on ebay

     

     

    This perfume sees Halle releasing her first fragrance and a last chance to grab a rare and discontinued fragrance.

    Many more have been added to her collection since.

     

    David Beckham

    Instinct by David Beckham

     

    David has a wonderful selection of male scents and has since collaborated with his wife Victoria to bring us a ‘his & hers’ range from their fragrance line the House of Beckham.
    He does enjoy wearing other designer scents as his signature scent but he also wears one of his own from his fragrance line House of David Beckham , called Instinct.
    Falling in the Fougere family and created in 2005, this bottle consists of a great blend of wood, earthy, spicy, floral and citrus notes.
    Celebrities who have their own perfume

    Buy Instinct on ebay

     

     

    There’s a fresh, citrus opening to this fragrance as we get a whiff of mandarin orange, followed by a woody aroma.

     

    The bottle itself is very simplistic, distinguished and clean. No fuss, no thrills and what you see is what you get kind of vibe.

     

    Tom Ford

    Tom Ford is no stranger to the fashion industry and the fragrance world so it would be slightly strange if he didn’t in fact wear one of his own creations as his signature scent.
    Alongside fragrances, Tom has created his own brand in menswear, accessories, eye wear and beauty products.

     

     

    Beau De Jour by Tom Ford

    This scent was launched in 2020, so a fairly new addition into the fragrance world.
    Just like David Beckham, Tom Ford has kept the scent of his own fragrance as an aromatic base within the Fougere family.
    Celebrities who have their own perfume
    The Fougere scent
    Celebrities who have their own perfume
    There are a great selection of spices as we smell woody and earth notes.
    This scent has lavender extracts and touches of Rosemary, mint, basil, oakmoss and then the base of patchouli and amber.
    Another scent to come in an eau de parfum, a light spritz of this strong fragrance will go a long way so less is definitely more.

    There are so many celebrities who have created and shared their love of creating wonderful scents and sharing them with us.

    What perfume do celebrities wear

    You would be led to believe celebrities wear the perfumes and aftershaves that they endorse. Whilst there are plenty that do, many have their own favourite.

    What perfume do celebrities wear?

    What perfume do celebrities wear

    It’s well-known many of today’s celebrities endorse a scent during their career but many do wear different scents to the ones they’ve helped create and promote.

    From film stars to pop stars, we’ve seen a staggering amount of fragrances sold off the shelves in store as well as online.

    What perfume do celebrities wear

     

    With up and coming stars hitting our screens and the celebrity circuit, we’re a little curious as to what scents these stars wear themselves.

    Interestingly they are scents that they don’t get paid for wearing either.

    Many of us will reach for a perfume or aftershave bottle before a night out or a weekend away so what do the celebrities wear when they go out in public?

     

    Signature  scents

    Celebrities often have a signature scent that they wear. A fragrance that reminds them of an occasion or indeed a scent to remind others of their presence. We’ve all been there.

     

    Related article: Signature fragrances

     

    Many of us or our friends have a signature scent that gets worn to every occasion and the more we get to sniff such fragrance, the more it reminds us of the person who is wearing it.

    Scents have a wonderful way of bringing back memories and special times, similar to when we listen to music.

    Let’s delve into the celebrity world of fragrances and take a look at some of the brands that our celebs are reaching for.

    Adele

    There won’t be many who haven’t heard of Adele or heard her records and know her unique style of music.

    Famous for writing powerful lyrics and unforgettable melodies with her beautiful ballads that almost everyone can relate to, Adele has been wearing her favourite scent since her teens.

    Hypnotic poison by Dior is one of those perfumes that can be very difficult to wear due to its powerful scent and it has certainly made a statement since its release in 1998.

    Just like Adele’s power ballads having the impact to hit home and are easily remembered, this fragrance has the same effect.

     

    Top notes : Plum, coconut, apricot

    Heart notes : Jasmine, caraway, Brazilian rosewood, tuberose

    Base notes : Vanilla, milk almond, sandalwood

    What perfume do celebrities wear

     

    A mixture of sweet yet powerful fragrance notes that will instantly give an impact on its first spray and a scent that will definitely get heads turning.

    It would seem the perfect scent for such a powerhouse. Both celebrity and perfume make an unforgettable entrance.

    Harry styles

    Harry Styles burst onto our screens as a 16 year old, back in 2010 when he auditioned for the X Factor.

    Since then, he became one fifth of the boy band One Direction and has continued his success as a solo artist to this day.

    Harry has been wearing the scent Memoire D’une Odeur by Gucci since staring in several campaigns for the fragrance.

    This gender neutral scent is perhaps contrary to what we may expect Harry to wear going by his unique fashion wardrobe.

     

     

    A man that possibly has every man, and women in fact, envious that he can wear absolutely anything and still look good!

    We visualize a strong masculine scent that turns heads so his choice of fragrance is a much more delicate approach.

     

    What perfume do celebrities wear

     

    With light herbal notes, it’s not an overpowering scent and sits nicely as an all day, every day kind of fragrance.

    Top notes: Bitter Almond, chamomile

    Heart notes : Musk, jasmine, Indian jasmine

    Base notes : Sandalwood, vanilla, cedar

    Since 2017, another of Harry’s favourite fragrances is Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille.

    This intense and hugely popular fragrance for both men and women was launched back in 2007. With its dark and sultry notes, this scent fits the sophistication and sex appeal that Harry Styles shows with such ease.

    Top notes : Tobacco leaf

    Middle notes: Vanilla, tonka bean, tobacco blossom, cacao

    Base notes: dried fruits and woody notes.

    Camilla Cabello

    Since its release in 2012, La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme has been a huge hit with Julia Roberts behind the TV advert.

    Not only does she endorse the product, she is also a wearer of the famous fragrance.

    We have another popular singer that likes its sweet and floral scent as Camilla Cabello enjoys this design too and I have to say, it’s one of my all time favourites.

    A first whiff of this fragrance automatically gives us a sense of youth and summer vibes and it’s no surprise why this scent is so popular.

    Top notes : Blackcurrant, pear

    Heart notes : Jasmine, Iris,orange blossom

    Base notes : Vanilla, praline, tonka bean, patchouli.

     

    Gordon Ramsay

    When you hear that Gordon Ramsay is a wearer of Aventus by Creed, it’s of little surprise.

    This scent has a masculine, rebellious and woody structure. A scent that is straight to the point, direct and there’s no confusion that it’s part of the Creed family.

    A touch of fruit gives Aventus its softer edge and a side that we occasionally see in this high profile, straight talking celebrity.

     

    What perfume do celebrities wear

    Top notes : Italian bergamot, pineapple, french apples, blackcurrant

    Heart notes : Patchouli, dry birch, rose, Moroccan jasmine

    Base notes : Oakmoss, musk, ambergris, vanilla.

     

    Johnny Depp

    Launched in 2015, Savage by Dior has become hugely popular. With a high dose of pepper, this fragrance still shows masculinity alongside hints of lavender and cedar.
    As part of the Fougere family and one of the top selling fragrances for men, looking closely at the fragrance notes, it shows an unusual selection.
    A selection that makes up this scent and is quite fitting for a quirky celebrity as Johnny Depp to wear.
    What perfume do celebrities wear
    Top notes : Pepper, Calabrian bergamont
    Heart notes: Lavender, pink pepper, patchouli, sichaun pepper, geranium
    Base notes: Cedar, laudanum, ambroxan

    Cameron Diaz

    Pure faced Cameron Diaz is a wearer of the fragrance Happy by Clinique, founded in 1968.
    Possibly a very typical choice of perfume with its floral blend of happy, feminine and vibrant blend of fragrance notes.
    We often think of pure, fresh skin and a delicate scent whenever Cameron Diaz adorns our screens.
    With a smile and a twinkle in her eye, this scent really does fit her personality perfectly.
    What perfume do celebrities wear
    Top notes: Blood orange, apple, grapefruit, orange, bergamot, Indian mandarin
    Heart notes: Lily-of-the- valley, rose, freesia, orchid
    Base notes: Amber, musk, lily, magnolia and mimosa.

    Lady Gaga

    Wearing such a fragrance as Womanity by Thierry Mugler certainly suits the unique creativity of Lady Gaga.
    A blend of sweet and spicy fragrance notes that fall in line with the classic and iconic scent of Thierry Muglar perfumes, fits this pop star down to a tee, alongside a creative bottle design.

    With its distinctive notes, it makes this perfume very versatile and suitable for any independent women and was launched in 2011.

     

    What perfume do celebrities wear

    Top notes: Citrus, green notes, chutney

    Heart notes: Sea water, caviar, black fig

    Base notes: Virginia cedar, immortelle, vetiver and opoponax ( violet scented flowers)

     

    Katy Perry

    Another celebrity who has a keen smell for unique scents by a classic designer is Katy Perry.
    Katy wears Angel by Thierry Mugler which was first launched in 1992.
    A scent with an acquired taste I feel, as it has very sweet notes and it’s almost like wearing the scent of a bar of chocolate!
    One of those fragrances that you either love or hate.

    Too many sprays could leave you and others with a headache as this perfume has a very strong base of vanilla that does tend to linger for a while.

    Not the best design of bottle to fit on your bedside cabinet as it doesn’t stand up on its own so one to keep in the box in between sprays.

    What perfume do celebrities wear
    Top notes: Strawberry, dewberry, honey, jasmine, orchid, rose, bergamot, helonial
    Middle notes: Chocolate, coumarin, caramel
    Base notes: Sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, musk.

     

    Brad Pitt

    Brad Pitt is a wearer of Musk by Lorenzo Villoresi.

    A masculine scent that is seductive, sensual and mysterious and was released in 1995.

    Once Brad started wearing this scent, it understandably became more popular. We are often influenced by high profile celebrities and what they wear when it comes to fragrances and clothes.

    With a touch of floral, wood and vanilla, this fragrance still maintains its balance as a unisex scent.

    What perfume do celebrities wear

     

    Top notes: Bay leaf, eucalyptus, mint, coriander, cypress, green notes, cardamom

    Heart notes : Cloves, nutmeg, pepper, cinnamon, fir, juniper, oregano, Thyme, caraway

    Base notes : Sage, rosemary, tomato leaf, heliotrope, oakmoss.

     

    Sandra Bullock

     

    Another celebrity that always has that youthful appearance year by year and wears Dune by Christian Dior is Sandra Bullock.

    Sandra is no stranger to our TV screens and has appeared in many box office films.

    A classic scent designed in 1991 and still popular today with its floral musk scent and is suitable for daytime or night, especially through the summer months.

     

    What perfume do celebrities wear

    Top notes: Mandarin, bergamot, aldehyde, palisander, peony, broom

    Heart notes: Rose, ylang-ylang, wallflower, lily, lichen, jasmine

    Base notes: patchouli. Sandalwood, amber, musk, oakmoss, benzoin, vanilla.

    The best summer fragrances for women

    Summer is finally here so if you’re looking for a fragrance, what are the best summer fragrances for women?

    The hot season, whether its’s here in the UK or abroad, requires a more subtle fragrance on the skin.

     

    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    Any scent that is too strong or heavy in fragrance notes won’t sit nicely on the skin and will most certainly be off-putting for you as well as those around you.

    Popular fragrance notes for summer

    Orange blossom
    Mandarin
    Grapefruit
    Jasmine
    Peony
    Tuberose
    Coconut
    Apple
    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    All the above fragrance notes speak ‘summer’ and ‘delicate scents’.

    During the heat, we wear lighter clothing so it makes sense to wear a lighter fragrance.

    There are lots of options to wearing a lighter scent when it comes to perfumes and fragrances.

     

    Body sprays for a lighter option

    Body sprays as we have previously discussed work very well when it’s hot. They instantly cool the skin down as well with their delicate mist.

    I have reached for my FM no.20 body mist over the past few weeks when we have seen temperatures read as high as 32 degrees.

    It felt far too hot to be wearing a perfume, especially as our own brand contain 20% pure perfume oil for a longer lasting fragrance.

    EDT is a great option too as these will give off just as good a fragrance but without so much longevity.

    Some women don’t feel fully dressed without a spritz of their favourite scent so having other options is of great benefit.

    If you’re a lover of fragrances, then you will already know just how many there are to choose from.

    It can be very overwhelming, especially if you usually purchase your favourite bottle from the perfume department stores.

    An overlay of scent whilst you try on several brands can give headaches and put you off from buying any.

    We like to have the option to try before we buy, especially if we’re looking for something new and different to our usual smell.

     

    Samples are available to try

    You can try samples before you make a purchase at FM World. Check out our shop here.

    The perfect scents to choose are those that have base notes of the summer scents.

    You don’t want to choose one that smells like summer with its first spray and then has heavy notes as the day goes on.

    By choosing perfumes and scents that have delicate base notes allows for that scent to stay subtle and soft throughout the day without feeling overpowering for you or anyone who walks past.

     

    Let’s take a look at some of the popular fragrance scents that are suitable for the hotter weather.

    3. Daisy-Marc Jacobs

     

    Another popular scent that I feel it suitable for all year round and has the most delightful design of bottle is Daisy.

    This perfume was launched in 2007 and has been popular ever since.

    You really do get a feel of fruit and summer with its combination of strawberry, jasmine, vanilla, musk and ruby red grapefruit notes.

    Pop those notes into a bowl and they would make the perfect fruit salad I’m sure!

    It is a perfume that instantly gives a feminine and romantic vibe that can be worn with confidence all year round.

    The wonderful bottle design fits in perfectly with a summer holiday and is a real head turner.

    There won’t be many women that haven’t hard of this beautiful scent. With the ever so beautiful Julia Roberts fore fronting such a fragrance since its release in 2012.

    The TV advert reaches our screens every Christmas and certainly makes this scent and bottle memorable.

    A wonderful combination of fragrance notes that no one can resist.

    Black current, pear, orange blossom, vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean notes give this delightful perfume its huge popularity.

    Based on the concept of natural beauty and charm, with another bottle showing off a classy and elegant design bottle.

    6. Good Girl Gone Bad- Killian

    With an instant smell of rose and amber, this popular fragrance is the perfect fit for a summer holiday. It boosts fruits and a touch of spice to give a real sense of the summer holiday season.

    Another scent to be launched in 2012, Killian has created a fruity and floral gem and as the top notes leave you, there is a wonderful scent of freshness and beach wave memories.

    7. Cool Water Woman-Davidoff

    If you love the smell of fresh air, a summer breeze and the saltiness of the waves crashing over your toes then Davidoff has created the perfect scent to transport you to your next destination abroad.

    This bottle oozes a freshness of lemons, citrus vibes and fruit to give a wonderful scent of nature and beauty.

    Created in 2018, it’s perhaps one of those perfumes that has gone unnoticed in the past and there may be many women who have yet to try it.

    Once the initial top notes have settled down, you are left with a familiar scent of the male version Cool Water. I was very much a fan of the male scent as it wasn’t heavy and had a masculine approach, whilst keeping its scent delicate and clean.

    8. Orange Blossom-Jo Malone

     

     

    This 2003 scent is suitable for both men and women even though it sits in the floral family.

    Being a light fragrance, it is suitable for any occasion with its great balance of fragrance to suit as a gender neutral scent.

    Fragrances notes of mandarin, jasmine, rose, lily and neroli see this perfume gives an instant burst of freshly squeezed clementine oranges.

    A real sense of summer pops through and after the orange has subsided, there is a hint of lemon mixed with flowers to keep the summer feel going.

    It smells of romance and dusky nights sitting by the water watching the sun set.

    Launched in 1999, J’adore boosts fragrance notes of melon, pear, peach, mandarin, orange, bergamot, vanilla, blackberry, plum and violet.

    Perhaps too sweet for some with such a combination of fruits in one bottle but definitely worth a try.

    Celebrity endorsed perfumes

    We see celebrity endorsed perfumes everywhere. Online and on the high street. So when did it all start?

    Back in 1987, Elizabeth Taylor first started the trend when she herself launched her perfume called Passion.

    The first celebrity to begin the endorsement trend

    Elizabeth Taylor’s signature fragrance White Diamonds

     

    This wasn’t her first fragrance either. She created her signature fragrance called White Diamonds in 1991 but the success came with the release of Passion 3 years earlier and became one of the best -selling fragrances of all time.

     

    Surprisingly, Passion isn’t expensive to purchase as you may think.

    Take a look on ebay for Passion by Elizabeth Taylor 

     

    With such an iconic celebrity at the forefront of this trend, it wasn’t long before the likes of Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston and Beyoncé became just some celebrities who saw a market and a platform for following in her footsteps.

     

     

    It’s a well-known fact that having a celebrity behind their own perfume is going to help massively with perfume sales.

     

     

    Do men and women simply purchase a designer fragrance because of the name behind it?

     

     

    Perhaps they did a few years ago but these days it’s not just the name behind the brand that matters. After all, there’s little point in purchasing a Beyoncé fragrance just because such a music icon is behind its creation.

     

    We purchase perfumes for their fragrances notes and longevity too.

    Women and men need to like the scent in order to wear it. It’s a waste of money if the bottle is going to sit in the wardrobe and never be worn.

    It’s not just perfume either that celebrities have endorsements on.

    Anything from clothing, jewellery and hand bags all have a touch of celebrity attached.

    Items that are endorsed by famous people will sell much quicker too. It’s a very clever marketing strategy and one that has been around for many years.

    Celebrity endorsed products

    When a celebrity endorses a product, this gives scope for the product to reach a larger audience and therefore making more sales.
    When we see a perfume that has been endorsed by Beyoncé for example, it immediately gives the buyer confidence in their purchase as the person behind the brand is well-known.
    Having such an iconic celebrity also makes the product more appealing.
    Have you noticed how attractive the celebrities are who endorse products ? It makes it more enchanting.

    Buying a well-known perfume

    Purchasing a perfume from a celebrity has a positive impact on the buyer and when they wear the fragrance created by their favourite singer/celebrity, it instantly gives confidence.
    The consumer also feels more important because they are wearing such a fragrance.
    Whenever we see a perfume being advertised on the TV, it will always have a famous face in the commercial.
