Celebrities Who Wear Niche Perfume

Dear Scent Diary,

There are lists scattered around the internet of the perfumes celebrities favour, most of which are messy and missing key information (which one from Dior??). Mainly, I find them frustrating and tiring. But I admit to being curious as to which current celebs are partial to niche perfumes (I don’t particularly care who wears DKNY Be Delicious). Since I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I took it upon myself to compile the darn thing. Turns out L’Artisan and Annick Goutal are quite popular, as are Creed and Guerlain. Anyway, here’s the list.

  1. Somehow I knew Diane Sawyer would be a perfumista. I love that woman. I think the biggest surprise on the list was Billy Idol + Diptyque!

  2. Fun!

    There is one Annick Goutal’s bottle on that I think I see the latest Hermes (Jour d’Hermes).

    • You know, I think I might have mistaken an Annick Goutal bottle for Infusion d’Iris. And you’re right, I think that is a bottle of Jour. Good eye. 🙂

  3. 10 mentions of Chanel fragrances by people who (for the most part) have scads of money… and only one of them is a Les Exclusifs.

    What is the world coming to, I ask you.

    • Ha! There was a conspicuously low percentage of Amouage, high-end Guerlain and other spendy niche stuff that I’d have more of if I had their bank accounts.

  4. Great Blog! Very Informative. I have linked to your blog on my website to let my customers know more about Creed Green Irish Tweed. I like to include unique information.

  5. That was so enjoyable. i love reading what the celebs wear. Tickles my fancy no end.
    I love that Tom Cruise wears the Goutals, I knew he wore Gendarme for auditions and interviews..
