Coco Chanel made a strong statement about how perfume can impact a woman’s life: “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” There might be some truth to that. If a woman has a signature scent, it’s often imprinted in the memory of those around her. These five legendary women all had a favorite perfume, which might be good to know just in case their choice of aroma really did play a role in their success.

Michelle Obama’s Royal Fragrance

Former First Lady Michelle Obama uses the fragrance Love in White by Creed. This perfume also happens to be the token scent for the British royal family, so in a sense, it represents Michelle’s internal strength, power, and grace. The scent is also very memorable. It is no wonder she has left such an impression on so many people.

Marilyn Monroe’s Sexy Scent

Even though Marilyn Monroe loved Chanel No. 5, her absolute favorite perfume was Floris Rose Geranium. Did this perfume’s floral scent of intoxicating rose, sandalwood, citronella, and geranium have anything to do with the world famous confidence and sex appeal of Marilyn Monroe? I guess you’ll only know if you try it, but you’ll have to make it yourself because it’s no longer in production.

Angelina Jolie Always Goes Niche In Perfume

Angelina Jolie is not just a phenomenal actress. She is also a fashion icon to the masses and has been since the start of her career. The captivating aroma of her number one fragrance, a niche perfume called 1969 by Histoire De Parfum, showcases Jolie’s fearlessness and strong personality.

The Truly Unique Perfume Of Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn was a real perfectionist, and that extended to the scent she wore. She took it so far as to hire Givenchy to develop a perfume especially for her. Initially, it was named L’Interdit, but the fragrance’s name has since been changed to Creed Spring Flower, and it was her favorite. The scent is now produced large scale, as so many women want to smell like Audrey.

Another Way Adele Hypnotizes Us

Adele’s powerful and beautiful voice is a force to be reckoned with. Such a voice should be represented by a scent of equal impact. It’s no wonder, then, that she favors Hypnotic Poison, a Christian Dior special. Just as Adele’s voice hypnotizes the people, so must her scent.
