A thorough research into Bollywood’s favourite scents led us to find a similarity between the two actors’ perfume choices
The search for a signature scent can be a daunting task to say the least—it is hard to find one perfume that’ll serve as a personal olfactory memory to your friends, family and everyone else you meet. It needs to lead conversations, make a statement and leave a lasting impression. We went through our archives to find out which scents our favourite Bollywood celebrities have been spritzing throughout the years, and came across some interesting tidbits—Alia Bhatt likes men’s colognes and Kareena Kapoor Khan keeps a vial of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique perfume stashed everywhere she can. But in the case of Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, the same fragrance won first place in 2014 and 2015. Both stars picked For Her by Narcisco Rodriguez as their signature scent.
In an interview with Vogue back in 2015, Kaif explained the provenance of her choice. “My childhood scent memories are of visits to the beach… the sun, sand and salty breeze, which is probably why my favourite holiday destinations are all tropical. However, I am attracted to floral scents with a hint of musk.”
The feminine yet powerful perfume balances the light scent of rose and gardenia buffed with musk and crystalline amber to create a rich scent that lingers long after it is sprayed. Plus, the 50ml Eau De Toilette is priced at Rs 4,800, making it a great gift for yourself or for a friend. If you are currently looking for a present for a Bollywood fan, it’s safe to say that your search has officially come to an end—just tell them you’re buying them a piece of Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone’s vanities and become the best gift giver in your group.
