We love it when our favourite celebrities share little snippets of their lives – especially their beauty secrets! (Like when we get the lowdown on Blackpink’s skincare tips, Son Ye Jin’s beauty secrets, and a collection of haircare tips of Korean stars!)
It comes as no surprise when one of their holy grail products is revealed and it sells out almost immediately. After all, who doesn’t want in on their idols’ signature lipstick shade?
Makeup and skincare aside, we’ve gathered some K-pop idols and Korean actors’ and actresses’ signature scents that you too, might want to add to your vanity.
Fragrance Son Ye-Jin wears
The Crash Landing On You star’s favourite scent is the cult-favourite Chloé Eau de Parfum, a fresh, floral fragrance.
With top notes of pink peony, freesia and lychee that embody subtle freshness, mid-notes of magnolia flower, lily of the valley and rose that rise to sublimated femininity at the heart on a base of cedarwood, amber and honey, it’s a chic, and sweet scent that’s just oh-so-irresistible.
Available on Sephora for S$155/50ml.
Fragrance Song Hye-Kyo wears
This oriental floral fragrance is the K-drama star’s favourite, and we can totally see why.
Capturing the honeyed floral haze of orange orchards in bloom, wearing Penhaligon’s Orange Blossom is like strolling from a shaded grove into warm sunshine – it’s crisp, sweet, and tempting!
Available at Penhaligon’s boutiques or at Selfridges for S$174/100ml.
Fragrance Park Min-Young wears
What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim‘s Park Min Young is a diehard fan of Creed’s Love in White for Summer – she revealed in a “What’s in my bag” YouTube video that she always has it in her purse for a quick spritz on the go!
Inspired by the scent of a gorgeous bouquet of white flowers combining the first blooms of spring with fresh grass on a base of white iris from Florence, rice husk, and vanilla to add depth and longevity, the resulting fragrance is sensationally fresh, creamy, and floral. Yum!
Available on Selfridges for S$300/75ml.
Fragrance Red Velvet’s Joy wears
Inspired by the beauty of the fresh white blooms in Sicily’s gardens, Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce pairs the best of vintage glamour with a modern edge!
Just look at how beautiful the bottle is – the timeless Eau de Parfum is presented in a beautiful bottle and topped with a ‘marzipan’ flower reminiscent of those seen in the windows of Sicilian confectioners. It’s no wonder this fragrance is one of Joy’s faves.
Available on Sephora for S$157/50ml.
Fragrance TWICE ‘s Na-Yeon wears
TWICE’s NaYeon is all about the feminine, floral scents, so of course her two go-to fragrances are Kenzo’s Flower in the Air and Acqua Di Parma’s Magnolia Nobile Eau De Parfum.
A sensual powdery floral bouquet of rose, violet and hawthorn, Kenzo’s Flower in the Air blends vanilla, white musk, and opoponax with a touch of pink peppercorns and incense for subtle, underlying sweet notes.
On the other hand, the bewitching Acqua Di Parma Magnolia Nobile Eau De Parfum is created with contrasting notes, which combine to evoke the scent of a vibrant flowerbed in the grounds of a stately Italian villa.
Fragrance A Pink’s Na-Eun wears
A Pink’s Naeun loves the sweet and delightfully playful Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey. This is inspired by the early morning market of London’s Covent Garden, featuring the aroma of succulent nectarine, peach and cassis and delicate spring flowers that melt into the note of acacia honey.
The house is also known for their bespoke scents; you can pair the Nectarine Blossom & Honey with fruity scents such as Wild Bluebell or Wood Sage & Sea Salt to add a succulent, juicy sweetness.
Available at all Jo Malone boutiques and Sephora at S$215/100ml.
Fragrance Girls’ Generation’s Yoon-A wears
If, like YoonA, you aren’t a fan of heavy, almost overpowering fragrances, then Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey sounds right up your alley.
This fresh fragrance is composed with delicate, light flowers combined with rose and lotus for a fresh, floral, aquatic fragrance with a woody trail. It’s practically luxury, beauty, and glamour bottled up!
Available on Sephora for S$128/50ml.
Fragrance Park Seo-Joon wears
The signature scent of Park Seo Joon (What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim and Itaewon Class) is this unisex fragrance from luxury fragrance brand Byredo.
Pure and simple in structure but extreme in character, Byredo’s Blanche eau de parfum is built around Ben Gorham’s perception of the colour white. For the first time he has made a fragrance for a specific person, capturing her innocent and untainted side, with a scent almost transparent in nature. Blanche also represents an appreciation for classic beauty.
Available on Selfridges for S$193/50ml.
Fragrance Hyun Bin wears
Crash Landing On You’s male lead Hyun Bin loves Creed’s Millesime Imperial Fragrant Spray.
Sexy and masculine, this cologne blends sea salt, iris, mandarin orange and Sicilian lemon to give off refreshing notes of citrus and a rich musk scent.
Available on CosmeticsNow for S$448.95/100ml.
Fragrance Lee Min-Ho wears
The timeless Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir Eau De Toilette Spray is the South Korean actor’s go-to fragrance.
Bottled in a minimalist yet luxurious bottle, the rich, elegant, and woody scent creates the perfect fragrance for a classy and charming man like Lee Min-Ho.
Available at Tangs for S$155/100ml.
Fragrance Song Joong-Ki wears
Light and comfortable, the Dior Fahrenheit 32 is the Descendants of the Sun and Vincenzo male lead’s favourite fragrance – and all for the right reasons.
With notes of fresh orange blossom, vetiver and vanilla, this is the cologne to add to your already growing fragrance stash if you love to smell clean and refreshing.
This fragrance has already been discontinued but you can still find it on Shopee for S$152/100ml (there’s a discount going on at the time of writing. Click on the link to see latest price.)
