Scent has the strongest tie to memory because it connects to the part of your brain that processes emotions. It also amps up your personality and helps people form connections with you! Let’s take a look at the coolest celebrity perfumes over the years!
1. Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
Named after a specific word in the lyrics of Taylor’s song, “Enchanted”, where she sings, “I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home,” this perfume captures the magic of first love and innocence, all in one bottle. Created by Olivier Gillotin of Givaudan, the fragrance has floral notes with sparkling fruity tones — and if your sense of smell is immaculate, you might catch a whiff of wood. The top notes are raspberry, green tea, freesia and apple blossom — painting the picture of a fairytale forest in mind, heavily reflecting Taylor’s dreamy personality.
2. Fantasy by Britney Spears
Britney will really whisk you away on a magical fantasy with this fragrance. Launched in 2005, the top notes contained in this luxurious pink bottle (adorned with Swarovski crystals, mind you) are kiwi, red litchi and quince, while the middle notes are white chocolate, cupcake, orchid and jasmine. If you can detect the base notes, there are also musk and orris roots!
3. Killer Queen by Katy Perry
Katy really killed it (pun intended) with this fragrance. She explains the scent:
“Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen. Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics. I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.”
Playful and edgy, you can channel Katy’s rebellious spirit with just one spritz and step into your own power!
