Celebrity Perfume Faves (Rihanna, Tom Holland & More!)

When it comes to glitz, glamour and smelling fabulous, celebrities often have a particular scent that they swear by. From the heavenly scent of Bad Gal Ri-Ri to the earthy, masculine accords worn by Harry Styles, there is a celebrity-endorsed fragrance for everyone. And, thanks to The Essence Vault, you can get ahold of your celebrity perfume faves at a fraction of the cost. 


Celebrity Perfume: What Perfume Are They Really Wearing?



We have to kick this article off with Rihanna, the undisputed queen of fashion, R&B and, unsurprisingly, smelling good. It’s no secret to the general public that Rihanna is an icon , and amongst her A-list peers, she’s praised for smelling delicious.

In a video interview for Q4 music, rapper and singer-songwriter Lil Nas X was asked what his favourite smell was, and he responded with "Rihanna" because she smells "like heaven". 

A little bit of research tells us that Rihanna's choice of fragrance is, in fact, 'Love, Don't Be Shy'. This particular scent features top notes of neroli, middle notes of orange blossom and base notes of marshmallow.

Olivia Rodrigo

The three-time Grammy Award-Winner told Vogue she likes "perfumes that have a natural musk." She went on to reveal that her choice of fragrance is Baccarat Rouge, which offers a seductive scent encompassing warmth and love. We have own own version of this fragrance that you can shop here.

It features top notes of blood orange and citrus and middle notes of lavender sage and saffron supported by base notes of oak, oak moss and ambergris.

Zendaya reportedly likes a fragrance that smells fresh and light, so her go-to scent is Idole Eau de Parfum. Fuelled by floral, citrus, and creamy vanilla, this fragrance offers a light, heavenly scent that can be worn as your usual day-to-day fragrance or as an occasion scent. 

If a fresh, light and floral fragrance sounds right up your street, this perfume from The Essence Vault's Base Note Collection would be perfect. It’s a feminine, floral fragrance lavished with citrus, petals, honey and rum notes. 


Sydney Sweeney

Sydney Sweeney is everywhere nowadays, solidifying herself as one of Hollywood's most famous IT girls. The breakout star who played love-fool Cassie in Euphoria on HBO, uses a signature floral fragrance with notes of bergamot, orange blossom, jasmine, and cedarwood.

She told Glamour Magazine: "It really represents a lot of who I am and who I wanna be. The vanilla reminds me of cooking with my grandma, making cookies. Or of home because I love vanilla – I have vanilla candles everywhere! So I feel like I'm always home and cosy with it."

Her signature scent of choice is none other than My Way, a unique blend of Orange Blossom and Bergamot with middle notes of jasmine and tuberose combined on a base of vanilla, white musk and cedar.

Harry Styles 

With his style and swagger, fans around the globe have been desperate to know what Mr Styles smells like. So much so that in 2020, Target, a store in America, began selling a candle rumoured to smell just like the Watermelon Sugar singer himself - it sold out in days.

Styles is known to be a fan of Tobacco Vanille, which features the scent of tobacco leaf, blended aromatic spices and warming vanilla. You can shop our affordable dupe of the Tobacco and Vanille fragrance here.

Ryan Gosling

He's just Ken, and he loves a perfume with good charm. The leading man in Barbie opts for a leathery fragrance blended with notes of atlas cedar in the form of DI Homme. This fragrance features top notes of cedar and vetiver, patchouli and woody heart notes; if it's good enough for Ken it's good enough for you!


Tom Holland

Spiderman smells nice. End of story. Research shows that Tom Holland may be one of the best-smelling men in Hollywood, with Jake Gyllenhall describing the actor as the "best smelling" person he has ever met.

Tom likes to wear Guilty for Men, which combines notes of damask rose, agarwood (oud), praline and clove. It is a seductive, classy fragrance, perfect for any wannabe superhero!

007 and the beautiful bachelor in Mamma Mia! Pierce Brosnan is a classy guy who knows how to make hearts swoon. It’s been reported that his choice of fragrance is the scent of Green Irish Tweed.

This fragrance oozes masculinity, with notes of citrus, including Iris and Lemon, supported by middle notes of violet and base notes of sandalwood and ambergris.
