    Cool What are the Best Celebrity Scents?

    Thought this would be a fun topic since there's some real hidden gems out there. My list so far is:

    Michael Jordan Legend (New Haarlem on the cheap)

    David Beckham Homme

    Hillary Duff With Love (A feminine but completely unisex, gives a coconut/tropical feel)

    McGraw Southern Blend (It's the best of the line, but considering how terrible the others are that's not saying much lol)

    Sean John Unforgivable (Overpriced for what it is, but a decent MI clone)

    Mine would be:
    1. David Beckham Homme
    2. Sean John Unforgivable
    3. Sean John I'm King of the night
    4. Antonio Banderas Black Seduction
    5. Santana for Him
    6. Usher Him (black bottle)
    7. Power 50 Cent
    8. Tim McGraw Southern Blend
    9. Daddy Yankee

    I've heard a lot about MJ Legend but never got a chance to test it. Moreover, it is not available anywhere (in India). Its on my test list.

    Power by 50 cents smells like Black XS to me, save for the citrus top note added..
    DB Homme doesn't resemble MJ Bang but rather, TdH(EDC)..
    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    ¿Si o No?

    I suppose if someone gave me a bottle of Unforgivable I could live with it, but anything else is likely to be used as a toilet air-freshener

    Cumming / Santana for Men / Mark Birley for Men are well-constructed and purchaseworthy. The vast majority of the remainder fall somewhere between mediocre and risible IMHO.

    Personally haven't bothered to try many celeb fragrances, and the one or two I have tried I didn't like. However, I love the smell of Avril Lavigne Forbidden Rose on my wife. I like that one a lot.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4.
    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    5. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    6. Puredistance - Black
    7. Brückner - Aoud 1
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Creed - Royal Oud
    10. Chanel - Egoiste

    Many are horrible, but imo, the ones listed below are all worth mentioning. I have tested/owned A LOT of celebrity fragrances.

    Antonio Banderas: Blue Seduction
    Antonio Banderas: Seduction in Black
    Antonio Banderas: Spirit
    Antonio Banderas: Spirit VIP
    Sean John: Unforgivable
    David Beckham Homme
    David Beckham Instinct Intense (harder to find now)
    Intimately Beckham
    Paris Hilton for Men
    Daddy Yankee
    McGraw
    McGraw Southern Blend
    Michael Jordan

    Honorable mention(s):
    Usher

    P.S.
    I am glad to see more love for David Beckham Homme on here. It's a very nice one, reminiscent of TdH, but more wearable really. Wore this for my SOTD yesterday. Perfect for perfect weather!
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    I am not to big on celeb frags, but actually own 2. They are both great and have already been mentioned, so I'll second (or third) Antonio Banderas Seduction in Black and Tim McGraw Southern Blend. Though I enjoy both very much, Seduction in Black gets worn much more often.

    Only own and like 3......

    1. Luciano Pavarotti

    2. David Beckham Instinct

    3. Power 50 cents

    I just recently acquired the Pavarotti which is wonderful.... The other two I wear on a fairly regular basis.....

    Totally underrated and little known: a currently discontinued Julio Iglesias scent from the early 90s.

    LUCIANO PAVAROTTI FOR MEN An incredible violet over woods melange. Really beautiful and really underrated.

    ..........also, CHER UNINHIBITED

    ..........GABRIELA SABATINI, (her first womens release) A rich honeyed tobacco fragrance, very wearable for a man.

    ......... MICHAEL JACKSON, (bottle with hologram on front). Similar to Boss Spirit, a very high quality fragrance.

    I highly recommend all of these.

    +1 for Southern Blend. Easy to find and relatively inexpensive.
