One things for certain; Jordan doesn't wear Tim McGraw.
That was Prince, and he was ordered to pay the manufacturer 4. mill. in damages.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
"Prince was sued by Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics in 2008 for failing to promote the perfume, which was supposedly inspired by his 2006 album 3121. The company said it spent millions of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses in reliance upon Prince's commitment to promote, and when the matter went before a special referee, the estimation of actual damage was accepted. Now, a New York Supreme Court judge has confirmed the award."

Michael Jordan Cologne I've always thought of as a very classy scent. I think it probably would have done better if it hadn't been one of the early celebrity scents.
As for celebrities, I recall reading how Eva Longoria was wearing and handing out as farewell presents bottles of her scent to her colleagues on the last day of shooting Desperate Housewives. (Pretty good scent too - my wife and niece really like it)
Quite frankly, were I a celebrity, I'd find it unimaginable to not take pride in wearing my own scent or scents. I recollect that Bijan spent quite some time with Michael Jordan when coming up with his first scent.
I, too, have heard Sarah Jessica Parker was pretty involved in the actual development of her scents. I believe she mentioned trying to understand scent development when the creative process was occurring on her first two scents so she could have her own personal input and direction. She seemed to sound somewhat involved in the creative choices of her third scent, but also expressed that it was not typical her and was rather thought out with team input making it surprising and something new that she wasn't used to.
I'm pretty sure she's mentioned wearing at least one of them in interviews before
i'm sure they've tried them a couple times, but really don't ever use them. why wear cheap cologne when you're rich
I think all these celebs are one and done, just to smell how it cane out..then it goes straight into the circular file.

I'm not sure but I do like Michael Jordan, Legend. A very nice gourmand fragrance.

My guess is that very few celebrities actually wear the fragrances they endorse.
Michael jordan wears his own brand I forgot wear the thread s showing all the celebs and what they wear but I distinctly remember jordan wearing his own, that and a bunch of presidents wore gendarme
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
I hope Jordan smells better than he dresses.
It is unlikely most bother to wear them and in the case Of the NY Yankees fragrance, the endorser-player showing up to represent it admitted he never tried it and spent most of his time signing autographs and answering questions from sports reporters, and not about the scent!
The negative responses here amaze me.
Basically, you are saying that celebrities don't have any vanity! Hilarious.
Or that they go away and wear expensive stuff - you know, the niche stuff that no one knows about, that most everyone posts here that they've never had a positive comment about, the "wear for one's self stuff" that no one else notices. Doubly hilarious.

I can't see half these celebrities wearing their own fragrances. Nor do I see them purchasing niche. Heck, fragrances are probably the last thing on their minds.
I would hope that they wear it, at least, for the photo shoot.
Of course they do. And Jennifer Lopez drives a Fiat. I saw the commercial to prove it!

It is a business deal with celebrities and they most likely won't wear or would wear it much less than fashion designers their own clothes.
Well in most cases a famous person would be be embarrassed to wear the crap put out under most celebrity brands. That said, the I agree Michael Jordan would be well served wearing Legend although he can probably just afford New Haarlem as Legend is just a straight copy.
On an episode of "The Simple Life: Road Trip", Paris Hilton can be seen using her own debut perfume (pink magenta bottle with squiggly lines) as an air freshener.
She even used it to "cover" the scent of dog poo when it pooed in the travel trailer they were towing.
I know for a fact, I wouldn't be using any frag I enjoy as an "air freshener". That's me, though.
Never leave the house without six sprays.
My Top 5:
1. Xeryus Rouge (vintage)
3. Perry Ellis "m"
4. Truth or Dare by Madonna
5. Alien Absolue
I saw a late-night show interview where David Beckham was talking about his fragrances and the host (male) was commenting on how good he smelled. I would hope based on the context of the conversation that he was wearing one of his own. He seemed quite proud of it. I don't remember him mentioning which one he was wearing.
All of these celeb fragrances (and probably most of the ones you suspect have a "nose" behind them) are straight out of the Krusty Skool Of Ekonomiks:
I just bought Phoenix by Keith Urban. I won't be able to get my nose on it until Friday. But I am sure there are celebrities who do wear the fragrances and some who don't. It would be ridiculous to own every product that has your name on it.
There isn't anything better than smelling good and being complimented on how good you smell!

However - probably only at public functions (and, again I stress, only if it's in the contract the celebrity signed).
I realize that's probably not the answer you're looking for, but it's the truth. Celebrity fragrances are business deals. We all know Michael Jordan isn't a perfumer. But his name and his likeness are used to sell all kinds of products, including perfume. A perfumery leases the rights to use his name and likeness for fragrances in exchange for money. As part of celebrity contracts, there is often a clause that says the product must be worn during specific functions and/or that competing products can't be worn in public. Basically, it all comes down to the terms of the contract.

I just read an article from an Allure interview with Keith Urban. He discusses Phoenix of course, but it was interesting to read him pointing out that some of his favorite scents were Opus 1870 & Oud Wood. He even talked about a couple scents he likes on Nicole... Chanel No.5 and Pretty Woman. Neat little read. FWIW

I'm sure yes at some point, but not exclusively. When Jordan is wearing a suit he doesn't wear Air Jordans either.
I read somewhere where contrary to popular belief on Basenotes, Johnny Depp actually does wear Sauvage as his signature. And he gets a lot of compliments on it from others.
"The stench / The stench / Of summer sex / And CK Eternity, oh hell yes"
-Fall Out Boy, "Uma Thurman"
No, but they probably do wear Sarah Jessica Parker and Paris Hilton.
I thought it is well known that Diddy designed Unforgivable. More specifically, he picked out Millesime Imperial and told them to make a scent that smells just like it.
I wear fragrance to smell good to everyone, not just myself
