ANGELINA JOLIE: GUERLAIN MON GUERLAIN
It’s as if Guerlain Mon Guerlain was made for Angelina Jolie. As the face of the scent, she embodies what it’s about – feeling free, sensual and strong. We reckon it’s perfect for all red-carpet dos, a creamy, fresh mix of lavender, jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood that will leave a lingering trail wherever you go. Whichever Mon Guerlain perfume you sport, you'll definitely smell as classy as Angelina.
IZZY BIZU: CACHAREL YES I AM
When we caught up with singer-songwriter Izzy Bizu, she told us she wears Cacharel Yes I Am day and night. ‘I wear it all the time,’ Izzy says. ‘I like the cardamom because I drink it with my tea and use it a lot in cooking. I’m also obsessed with the ginger. The bottle and smell remind me of a good night out – red lipstick and party outfit.’ So whether you’ve got a red-carpet event or just a want a creamy, spicy scent for the daytime, we think you’ll be hooked. The combination of cardamom, ginger, milk and sandalwood makes for a bold, standout scent.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH: HUGO BOSS BOSS BOTTLED INFINITE
Our favourite Australian actor, Chris Hemsworth, is fronting up the new Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Infinite scent, and we couldn’t be happier. Sure, the campaign shows him on a surfboard on the beach, but we reckon he sprays the scent before red-carpet events, too. And we don’t blame him – the cinnamon, sage, rosemary and lavender make the sexiest combo we know.
RYAN REYNOLDS: ARMANI CODE ABSOLU
Armani Code Absolu, the latest addition to the Armani Code range, is a potent, seductive blend of rum, vanilla and tonka bean. How incredible does that sound? Its celebrity face is American actor Ryan Reynolds, whose suave elegance is a perfect match with this fragrance. Got a black-tie event coming up? Team with a smart suit and bow tie and you’ll smell just like Ryan on the red carpet.
