A good perfume is reminiscent of the time you wore it. I feel like fragrances always make it much easier to go back to a certain time in your past, an olfactory archival if you will. But if I use this logic to create a hypothetical situation fused with delusion, it means I can vicariously live my favourite Bollywood scenes if I just know what perfume the actors are wearing.
So here are five scents that our favourite male celebs wear on a daily basis. A little slice of their lives you can replicate from the comfort of your own home.
Ranbir’s 2 Scent Regimen
Let’s start with Bollywood’s most consistent heartthrob, Ranbir Kapoor. While he may have some jaded ideas about how a married relationships (or any relationship) works, we’ve got to give it to him when it comes to staying in style. Allegedly, his perfume combination is super versatile and he switches between the Z Zegna EDT and Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Eau De Toilette.
Ranveer’s Rani Fragrance
Next on the list is the eponymous star of Rocky and Rani, Ranveer Singh. His fragrance, Oud Save The Queen By Atkinsons 1799 is as electrifying as his performances. The scent opens with the alluring richness of oud, delicately wrapped in the gentle embrace of jasmine and orange blossom. Add to that the unexpected zing of earl grey bergamot and a hint of clove, and you’ve got a fragrance that’s as eclectic as the star!
You know, even if you just look at the bottle, it’s so Ranveer-esque, if you know what I mean.
SRK’s Viral Combination
The third person on this list is obviously SRK. It would be a shame if we left out on his viral perfume combination of Diptyque L’Eau Eau de Toilette (which is only sold in London) and the Dunhill Icon Alfred Eau De Parfum. The combination instantly evokes the allure and charisma the Jawan star is known for.
Aditya Roy Kapoor’s Fragrance Aura
Next up, we have the suave actor from Aashiqui 2, Aditya Roy Kapoor. One whiff of his signature Tom Ford Ombre Leather is all it takes. A depiction of his lifestyle and representative of his enigmatic aura, the fragrance has hints of patchouli, vetiver, and jasmine, which are as multifaceted and deep as Aditya’s on-screen performances.
Shahid’s Sandalwood Scent
Lastly, I’d like to close this with a uniquely elegant fragrance supported by Shahid Kapoor. The Green Irish Tweed by Creed Boutique is a best-seller that seamlessly blends the invigorating scent of peppermint with calming lavender. The fragrance also sports grounding notes of sandalwood and oakwood, creating a balanced, masculine aroma. It’s a fragrance that lingers, much like Shahid’s impactful performances that stay with audiences long after the credits roll.
If you’re looking for a gift for your man, take your pick. It’ll make him smell irresistable and make all your Bollywood dreams come true!
