We will admit, that celebrity fragrances are not normally high on our shopping lists. Why? Because typically they smells horrendous. They’re aimed at younger audiences, so are pumped with sweetness and are about as sophisticated as a fart. The stars rarely have anything to do with it, just simply put their faces on the boxes. And they rarely make it on to the bestselling women's fragrance list. But occasionally one or two will slip through the net and will catch our attention and end up being a celebrity fragrance that smells good.
Here’s our definitive list of our favourite celebrity fragrances…
Arguably the first successful celebrity fragrance, it broke sales records when it came out in 2002. So successful in fact, that it seems as though Jenny from the Block’s scent inspired the rest of Hollywood and a barrage of others came after. The beauty behind this fragrance is that it isn’t sweet at all; it’s floral, musky and soapy but in a really good way. It’s said to smell like skin.
Right, we will admit that this one falls into the sweeter-than-a-Starbucks-Christmas-Gingerbread-Latte category, it’s got notes of kiwi, lychee, white chocolate and even cupcake. Yep, you read that correctly. But for some reason it works for this one. We’ve heard rumours of women dousing themselves in Fantasy, but hiding the bottle from view, choosing to display more niche fragrance brands in their #shelfies.
SJP’s Lovely is exactly that, lovely. It’s another powdery scent, but it’s laced with black pepper so has a bite to it. The Sex and the City actress was heavily involved in the creation and wanted to create a modern and charming fragrance, which we can happily confirm she did.
If you were tasked with describing a perfume that your grandmother would wear, you would end up describing Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds. Without sounding strange, it smells vintage. It’s a rich heady floral, that really smells of luxury. If you like Chanel No5, this is its not too distant cousin.
The newest fragrance on our list, Katy Perry’s Indi came out early this year. In the past the singer’s other offerings have fallen under the umbrella of scents that we don’t like, sorry KP, but this one left us pleasantly surprised. There are five types of musk in it, making it a really interesting scent. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but we like that she’s done something a little different – hence the name we guess.
She makes jolly nice undies, her pyjamas are incredibly comfortable and her makeup line is brilliant. But have you smelt her perfume? If not, next time you’re in M&S head to the cosmetics department and give it a whiff. The chic combo of pepper, lemon, jasmine, sandalwood and magnolia is a marvellous debut by the British supermodel. And let’s face it; if we can look like her, smelling like her will have to suffice.
