Celebs and their signature scents, From Hayek to Depp – 9 Stars and Their Signature Scents

"As an actor, you have many tools - your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don't say is more important than what you say. That's not so much the case for stage."

The sense of smell can be more powerful than you realize, which is why it can make or break the first impression you have of a person. Celebrities are no different and so they choose unique, powerful fragrances that help them make a lasting impression wherever they go. Their signature scents could be their own creations or specific fragrances they love—either way, most celebs have a favorite that could very well be their trademark scent. 

Angela Bassett

Academy Award and Emmy nominee, Angela Bassett is known for her diverse roles in film and TV. For years now, Bassett has stuck with the irresistible Miss Dior fragrance. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the American Horror Story star said: “I like Miss Dior fragrance, and I always put on coconut oil—skin is the biggest organ!” Also, a healthy lifestyle helps the actress keep issues like inflammation, breakouts, and rashes at bay.

Tom Cruise

Few Hollywood actors have been consistently fit and successful like Tom Cruise has, even as he enters his 60s. His recent box office successes Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning are testament to his enduring stardom. When it comes to skincare and beauty, he swears by certain fragrances, with Eau d’Hadrien being one of his favorites. This perfume has a fresh citrus scent and grapefruit, lemon, and Tuscan cypress undertones. These elements give the fragrance a classic yet adventurous vibe.

Given his recent Oscar win, Robert Downey Jr.’s stardom is at an all-time high. The Iron Man actor is known for his inimitable and sophisticated fashion sense, and he has a favorite fragrance to go with the style—the Gendarme V. This perfume is known for its lingering fragrance as it blends several earthy and citrusy notes that, together, make it a calming and uplifting scent. Like the Sherlock Holmes actor’s sense of style, the Gendarme V stands out for its easy and uncluttered nature.

Salma Hayek

One of the most influential Latino actors in Hollywood, Salma Hayek’s unique flair and grace deserve a fragrance just as special. This is why Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium is the go-to choice for the Desperado star. Hayek is such a big fan of the fragrance that even her daughter, Valentina Pinault, uses it all the time. The YSL Opium Eau de Parfum for women has an incredible aroma that combines spices, refreshing citrus notes, flowers, and oriental base notes. In other words, the scent captivates the senses like no other, which is probably why Hayek likes it!

Diana Ross

Singer Diana Ross’s signature fragrance, Diamond Diana, is just as elegant, sensual, and iconic as the star herself. Diamond Diana strikes the perfect balance between femininity, confidence, and beauty. During the signature scent’s launch, Ross told HSN, “This personal fragrance is inspired by the powerful connection between music and sensual memories.” Ross added: “Sensual scent vibrations are carried from heart to heart like music. Everyone should have a diamond.” In another interview with Vogue, she called her signature scent, Diamond Diana, “a fresh breeze.” She also said, “It’s light enough, yet exquisite enough. I wanted the fragrance to have a little bit of a mystery. I wanted it to sing.”

Sofia Vergara

The Columbian-American actress Sofia Vergara is known for her performances in Modern Family and Griselda. Her love for all things exotic led her to create her own signature scent, which she wanted to be seen as an empowering statement for women. Vergara’s fragrance called Lost In Paradise is just as its name suggests—a blend of heavenly fruity, white floral, warm spicy, musky, sweet, fresh, vanilla, woody, and patchouli notes. Its top notes are soursop, red apple, and nashi pear; the middle notes are lily-of-the-valley, orange blossom, and gardenia; and the base notes are vanilla, teak wood, musk, and patchouli. This unique scent profile makes the fragrance fun and vibrant, ideal for most occasions.

The two-time Academy Award-winning actor is not only famous for her acting chops but for her style as well. So, it comes as no surprise that her go-to fragrance is Si Passione Intense, a fiery one-of-a-kind perfume designed and created by Giorgio Armani. This perfume has a floral and fruity fragrance that is meant to represent strength, passion, and resilience as much as playfulness. It comes with notes of rose, pear, and woody vanilla.

Hugh Jackman

The Wolverine star is a huge admirer of Guy Vetiver, a perfume that offers top notes of citrus and spice, a heart of herbs and florals, and a base note of musk and woods. All these elements offer a sense of confidence, style, and strength. This fragrance, created by none other than Tom Ford, offers a versatile and sophisticated scent that works for any occasion.

Johnny Depp

Few stars can combine eccentricity and style as well as Johnny Depp does. The Pirates Of The Caribbean and Edward Scissorhands star frequently reaches for a scent that leaves as much of an impression as he does. The fragrance is called Sauvage by Dior. It is a premium cologne that offers a sharp, spicy burst of mint, pepper, and bergamot, elements that make the fragrance last longer. It is best worn in summer and spring, as it also comes with notes of lavender, geranium, and patchouli that add some freshness to the steady base notes of cedarwood and ambergris.
