What Do Your Favorite Celebrities Smell Like?

Chanel No. and Fleurissimo by Creed

Ever wonder what fragrance your favorite celebrities wear? Not the ones they sell, but the ones they actually choose to wear?

Nicole Kidman promotes Chanel No. 5 but I’ve heard her mention in interviews that she’s worn Tea Rose since she was a teenager.

Although Actress Rachel Weisz appears in ads for Burberry, I read in an interview that she always wears Cristalle by Chanel.

Jacqueline Bisset always wore the classic Arpege by Lanvin. In the movie Day for Night, you can see a bottle of it on her dressing table.

Jacqueline Kennedy, they say, always wore Joy by Jean Patou, known as the costliest perfume in the world.

Princess Rainier of Monaco commissioned Fleurissimo by Creed for Grace Kelly for their wedding day. It’s a lovely fragrance. But did she actually wear it? I wonder.

Many celebrities and historical figures have been known to wear Creed fragrances.

George Clooney is said to wear Green Irish Tweed. Supposedly, Frank Sinatra wore Bois du Portugal. And Julia Roberts wears Spring Flowers. I’ve read that Madonna is partial to Tubereuse Indiana. And Tâbarome was created by Creed for Winston Churchill.

Creed has a private collection of perfumes created for legendary film stars:

Angélique Encens was created for Marlene Dietrich in 1933.

Cuir de Russie was created for Errol Flynn in 1938.

Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare was created for Ava Gardner in 1948.

Sélection Verte was created for Cary Grant in 1955.

Jasmal was created for Natalie Wood in 1959.

If you want to try a fragrance by Creed, I suggest you start with Fleurissimo. It’s magnificent.

I’m partial to Chanel No. 5 myself. I’ve worn it since I was a teenager. I also occasionally wear Ferragamo.

What perfume do you wear?

    I wear Issey Miyake for women, and sometimes Fresh Freesia. For night I’ll wear Chanel No. 5, or Thierry Mugler’s Angel. I’m looking for a new day perfume though, thinking of trying out some Hermes scents or maybe Creed.
