Karan Johar, the maestro behind the glossy sets of our favourite films and the ever-popular Koffee With Karan, has always been a trendsetter. From his newest line of Pout lipsticks to everything else he wears, talks about, or features in his films – the trendsetter in him has always had the attention of the world for a reason.
In a recent interview with GQ India, the director revealed his go-to perfume – a coveted scent that is, as usual, out of budget for the general public. So, here’s a cheeky dive into affordable dupes that bring you a whiff of Karan’s choice without draining your wallet.
What Does Creed Viking Smell Like?
Creed Viking “celebrates the essence of a fearless and fiery spirit.” Launched in 2017, this award-winning fragrance combines “Fresh citrus notes of Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian lemon with pink peppercorn, Bulgarian rose and peppermint.” It also has a woody base with notes of Indian Sandalwood and Haitian vetiver.
