Scents and Senses: L.A.’s Top 8 Picks for Celebrity Perfumes

by | Sep 12, 2023

In the business of entertainment and fashion, looking good is a top priority; but smelling even better has become more than just a trend, but a way of life. Over the years, a multitude of A list stars have ventured into the enchanting realm of perfumery, releasing fragrances that promise to capture their essence in a bottle. But do these celebrity-endorsed scents live up to the hype?

We’ve embarked on a fragrant journey to test and rate some of the most iconic perfumes owned by celebrities by interviewing 300 women in Los Angeles. On a scale of one to five stars, we’ll explore the olfactory delights and distinct personalities behind each fragrance.


Beyoncé – Heat (★★★★☆)

“Feel the heat, keep the fire burning,” declares the sultry queen herself. Beyoncé’s “Heat” sets the stage with a burst of red vanilla-orchid and magnolia, wrapped in a sensual musk. The result? A perfume as fiery and passionate as the pop sensation herself. It’s perfect for a night out, exuding confidence and allure. Four stars for its sizzling appeal.


Rihanna – Rogue (★★★★★)

If Beyoncé’s “Heat” sets things ablaze, Rihanna’s “Rogue” takes you on a dark and captivating journey. Opening with lemon blossom and cyclamen, it evolves into jasmine, rose, and plum, before settling into a warm base of suede and patchouli. It’s the scent of a confident rebel, commanding attention. A perfect five-star score for this bold and charismatic fragrance.


Kim Kardashian – KKW Crystal Gardenia (★★★☆☆)

Kim Kardashian, the queen of contour, ventured into perfumery with her KKW Crystal Gardenia. With top notes of water lily and gardenia, this scent is undoubtedly elegant. However, it tends to fade quickly and lacks the lasting power of some others on our list. It’s a three-star choice, best suited for those who prefer subtlety.


Britney Spears – Fantasy (★★★★☆)

Britney’s “Fantasy” whisks you away to a world of enchantment and daydreams. The opening is a sweet burst of lychee, quince, and kiwi, followed by a heart of jasmine and white chocolate. A base of orris root, musk, and woods adds depth. It’s a playful, flirtatious scent that earns a solid four stars for its youthful charm.


Jennifer Lopez – Glow (★★★☆☆)

Jennifer Lopez’s “Glow” pays homage to her radiant persona. Fresh and clean, it boasts top notes of grapefruit and neroli, a heart of rose and jasmine, and a warm base of amber and vanilla. While it’s easy to wear daily, its simplicity earns it a modest three-star rating.


Ariana Grande – Cloud (★★★★★)

Ariana Grande’s “Cloud” is a breath of fresh air in the celebrity fragrance realm. This delightful perfume features top notes of lavender and pear, a heart of coconut and praline, and a base of vanilla and cashmere wood. It’s like a warm, comforting hug from a cotton candy cloud. Five stars for this heavenly scent!


Lady Gaga – Fame (★★★★☆)

Leave it to Lady Gaga to create a fragrance as unconventional as herself. “Fame” is a black fluid that turns clear when sprayed, accompanied by notes of apricot, orchid, and belladonna. The scent is daring and provocative, much like the artist herself. It’s a solid four stars for its uniqueness and intrigue.


Taylor Swift – Wonderstruck (★★★★☆)

“Wonderstruck” by Taylor Swift is a fragrance that seeks to capture the essence of enchantment and whimsy. It opens with a burst of fruity notes, including raspberry, apple blossom, and freesia, creating a sweet and playful introduction. As it settles, the heart notes of hibiscus and honeysuckle take center stage, adding a floral elegance to the scent. The base notes of vanilla and musk provide a warm and comforting finish. An astounding four stars to its sweetness and charm.

From the fiery allure of Beyoncé’s “Heat” to the daring rebellion of Rihanna’s “Rogue” and the dreamy escapism of Ariana Grande’s “Cloud,” celebrity-owned perfumes offer a wide range of scents to suit various tastes. While some may fall short of expectations, others surprise with their uniqueness and staying power.

Ultimately, the best celebrity fragrance for you depends on your personal style and preferences. So, the next time you’re looking to add a touch of stardom to your fragrance collection, consider these ratings and find the celebrity scent that matches your personality and vibe. Whether it’s a fiery passion or a cloud of sweetness, there’s a celebrity perfume waiting to become your signature scent.
