    Wink Best Celebrity Fragrance?

    I normally try to stay away from this part of the market as I have found almost all are carbon-copies of other designer fragrances but inferior in every way, i.e. sillage, projection, less expensive ingredients. I have only tried a few but I find maybe the best exception to this is Sean John's Unforgivable

    It has comparisons to MI by Creed which I also find which makes this a steal at a fraction of the cost of the niche scent it is knocking off :P Britney Spears' Curious is also a nice feminine scent I find

    Anybody else have an attraction to a celebrity-endorsed fragrance?

    It's celebrity but it's definitely a good one. Encre Noire which is reminiscent (kinda,sorta) of Sycomore.

    The only celebrity fragrance I currently have is Mariah Carey's LUSCIOUS PINK
    It reminds me of Bond 9 Scent of Peace

    I've only got one of these. 'Luciano' by Pavarotti. Admittedly I haven't explored the field much. 'Cumming' is good (the original, not tried the watery reformulation).

    Michael Jordan Legend smells 95% identical to Bond no.9 New Harleem, except it isn't as cloying.

    Another one for Michael Jordan Legend. Nice vanilla gormand.

    Didn't try many. Only ever owned Seduction in Black by Antonio Banderas. It's not great though.

    The old "Luciano Pavarotti" of the Nineties, really a good scent, made with first-quality ingredients.

    Havent tried too many celeb fragrances but I agree Unforgivable is probably the best one ive smelled. I really want to try MJ Legend because I love New Haarlem but cant afford it right now.

    While it is not great, a rather good (and inexpensive) scent is David Beckham Instinct (2005)...normally, I stay far away from celebrity scents.

    I truly enjoyed at least two celebrity scents, both discontinued now, one endorsed by Julio Igleasias, the other by Luciano Pavarotti.

    I think some are mistaking celebrity scents like Tim McGraw's Southern Blend with traditional fragrance houses who hire a celebrity to be the face of a scent in an ad campaign, like Givenchy did by hiring Justin Timberlake for a marketing campaign for Play and Play Intense.

    There's a big difference between Givenchy and Tim McGraw. Play isn't a celebrity scent. Southern Blend is.

    I haven't smelled Southern Blend, but I've seen people mention it here as a good cheapie. Something by Carlos Santana comes up a lot too.

    I really do enjoy Carlos Santana for Men. It is also (very possibly) the most complimented fragrance I own.

    I like Paris Hilton's Just Me for men (very similar to ADG & even closer to Perry Ellis 360 Red). I also enjoy Usher UR for men in the silver bottle as well.

    I like Unforgivable, MJ Legend - and Success by Trump even though
    many dont care for 'The Donald' or his fragrance line.

    That's correct. Many Basenoters don't seem to care for The Donald and his anal hair transplant, though admittedly some of us haven't actually tried "Success" or anything else from his fragrance line.

    Sarah Jessica Parker - Lovely

    It is quite unisex and I haven't smelled a better celebrity fragrance. I rank it highly even amongst designer frags.

    Is ELdO Like This a celebrity scent? It was fronted by Tilda Swinton.
