Whether you’d like to admit it or not, there’s always a certain fascination when a well-known celeb releases a fragrance. Especially when it’s a celeb you love. It’s almost as though you’ve gotten a backstage pass to what their favourite fragrance notes are – and now you can spritz them onto your pulse points everyday. We’ve rounded up a list of our favourite EDPs and EDTs brought to you by some of the world’s biggest names in pop culture. Some of them are new, others are already best-sellers. There are also some great gift ideas on this list too. Ready for our favourite celebrity fragrances? Let’s go…
Ariana Grande Ari By Ariana Grande Eau de Parfum
We know you should never judge a perfume by its bottle, but we can’t help it when it comes to Ari by Ariana Grande EDP. Isn’t it gorgeous? The bottle matches the juice in terms of perfection with top notes of pink grapefruit, crispy pear and juicy raspberry. The heart of this fruity floral gourmand has notes of rose, vanilla orchid and lily-of-the-valley before eventually settling into a dreamy, musky base of marshmallow and woody notes. If you’re looking for something easy to wear with a subtle hint of sweetness, then give this a whirl. It’s fun, feminine and sparkly. Much like Ari herself.
Antonio Banderas The Icon Eau de Toilette
If amber woody, masculine scents are your thing, this fragrance will undoubtedly win you over. Antonio Banderas has a few fragrances under his belt, but there’s something special about this one. The ombre blue bottle sets the mood for this cool, fresh scent – boasting notes of grapefruit, black pepper, sage and lavender. The base note combination has sandalwood and oakmoss, a superb woody blend that is wearable (remember, this is an EDT), but still makes a bold statement. If you’re looking for a last-minute Father’s Day gift for your number one guy, spoil him with a bottle.
Britney Spears Curious Eau de Parfum Gift Set
This is the OG Britney scent that was released in 2004 and has been a worldwide fave ever since. The predominantly floral fragrance contains notes that pay homage to Britney’s home state – Louisiana in the US. Without further ado, let’s get stuck into the notes, shall we? Top notes include fresh lotus, anjou pear and *drumroll* Louisiana magnolia. The florally heart consists of jasmine, tuberose and pink cyclamen. Woody, vanilla, musky accords make up the playful base once it develops. And this gift set comes with a full sized EDP (100ml) and travel size (30ml). If you’re a Britney fan, this is a must. If you’re drawn to fragrances with white floral notes, it’ll drive you crazy. In a good way, of course.
David Beckham Bold Instinct EDT
We feel that out of all of Becks’ fragrances (and there are quite a few available), this one epitomises him most of all. The bottle is tall, dark and handsome, much like our favourite (retired) English football star and boasts an elegant-type style, with its combination of copper and black tones. It even has a magnetic lid. Now – onto the juice. Upon first spritz, we’re greeted by juicy pineapple mixed with fresh, herbaceous laurel leaves, followed by warm, spicy (VB’s influence?) heart notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. Amber, musk and intense patchouli notes make up the ultra-masculine base-note composition. Another reason to pop this scent into your cart? It was created by David Beckham to encourage people to be bold and follow their intuition. We reckon it’s another great Father’s Day pressie too.
Fenty Beauty Fenty Eau De Parfum 75ml
Rihanna said: “I made a fragrance for myself and am now sharing it with you. You never forget it.” This one-of-a-kind EDP is the first and only scent in the Fenty Beauty range and we can’t get enough. The sexy bottle is curved and fits perfectly in your hand, with rich gold-brown tones that are enhanced in the sunlight. The notes of this warm, unisex floral are the perfect combo of sweet and spice; top notes include tangerine and blueberry, followed by a dreamy, middle composition of geranium, Bulgarian rose and magnolia. The dry down is powerfully enriched in base notes of patchouli and musk. Take a bow, RiRi!
