It’s no secret that celebrities and influencers wear things, use things, eat things and drink things if they are being paid to do so.

It’s a great way for brands to be advertised and often, celebrities are paid huge sums of money – along with free products! 

The Perfumes That A-Listers Wear (But Aren’t Paid To)

As a result, we’re often skeptical if we see a celebrity claiming they love a product or if we see them wearing a perfume because we’re always wondering if they’ve been paid to do so.

However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, celebrities will wear perfumes simply because they like them – but this can be difficult to find out. 

Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you. We’ve compiled this group of A-listers that wear perfumes without being paid to do so, and we tell you what perfumes they are!

So, read on to find out more! 

Kylie Jenner

Perhaps the epitome of A-listers comes when we start discussing the Kardashian family.

Kylie Jenner is a very outspoken member of the celebrity community and she has said in the past that perfumes often make her head hurt. 

As a result, anything she chooses to wear has to be light and not react too much with her head due to the scent. Therefore, you know if she’s wearing something – she’s chosen it herself! 

She wears Coconut Passion by Victoria Secret. Anybody who uses this will tell you they get thoughts of the beach or sea when they smell the scent and it is quite glittery and light. Effectively, you’ve got a vacation in a bottle!

Victoria Beckham 

The former Spice Girl and wife of Golden Balls Becks himself, Victoria Beckham shines through as one of the A-listers who does not need to be paid to wear things – she has her own brands of course! 

Victoria has been known to wear Room Service by Vilhem Parfumerie which is a very natural smelling scent, reminiscent of nectar, orchids, bamboo and fruits. 

She once claimed the fragrance to be “super chic” when she posted on Instagram, which sounds like a very high review from where we’re sitting! 

Kate Moss

Kate Moss is one of the world’s most famous models and certainly is deserving of a place on our list of A-lister celebrities. But what perfume could someone like her wear?

Well, she’s said to wear Cerf Blanc by La Maison Hedonique and supposedly this is because the smell reminds her of one of her best nights out with a well known rock band (but we’re not sure who!). 

The smell has overtones of whiskey, smoke and leather – almost like a biker bar. However, whilst this may not be for everyone, those that enjoy the smell will certainly fall in love with this fragrance. 

This is especially true for people who are huge fans of niche perfume brands, and this one could be your next daily choice!

Margot Robbie 

The Australian A-list actress is well known for her roles in The Wolf Of Wall Street and as Harley Quinn, but her choices of clothes and fragrances are not quite as well known. 

She’s actually quite “basic” in that her choice of fragrance is quite common – Calvin Klein’s Deep Euphoria! 

Now, even though it is quite easy to get a hold of this perfume, that does not detract from how good the perfume is. It is very high quality!

It has a very musky but also floral fragrance to it which are then quickly followed by fruits like pomegranate, passionfruit and mango – later complemented with wood-smells like mahogany and black orchid. 

So, if you ever get a chance to get your hands on this perfume – you’ll know you’ll enjoy it!


Rihanna is certainly one of the cream of the crop when it comes to discussing A-list celebrities and she can literally choose any fragrance in the world that she wants to wear. 

So, what does she choose?

Well, she has said before that she wants to smell “delicious” and she does that with her selection of Love, Don’t Be Shy by Killian. 

This is a perfume that is very sweet and many people have claimed it to smell like marshmallows and vanilla.

This is later followed by a light smell of roses, jasmine and iris – all of which works well with the sweetness. 

Kendall Jenner 

Another member of the A-list celebrity Kardashian family, Kendall is often noticed for her choice of fashion and other brands. 

You wouldn’t be wrong if you think you saw her before as the face of Estee Lauder, because that used to be the case! 

However, she no longer is but she still chooses to wear Estee Lauder: Modern Muse Le Rouge and says it is one of her favorites. 

It’s easy to understand why though. This perfume has a mix of floral, peppery and fruity scents being joined together with a musky and sweet tone. 

If you’re looking for a scent you can wear everyday and for any season – this Estee Lauder perfume is something you should certainly consider looking at. 

Chrissy Tiegen 

Chrissy Tiegen has gone on record stating that she’s an absolutely huge fan of Dior and specifically Dior’s Hypnotic Poison. 

Not only does it come in a unique appearing bottle, it smells strongly of Jasmine and is ideal for those that want to highlight their sexiness rather than their sweetness! 

Kate Middleton 

You can’t really have an A-list without having members of the British Royal family can you?

Kate Middleton is known for her brilliant fashion sense, and this is no exception when it comes to perfume. 

As a member of the Royal family, she doesn’t really need to endorse products – so when she claims that she wears a perfume, you can hazard a guess that this is genuine!

She wears White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum. A really summer strong scent, it is fresh with a white floral fragrance – ideal for the strong, feminine type.

It is one of the most popular fragrances on the market, so you may have trouble finding one available though. 

Meghan Markle 

Speaking of the Royal family, we’re moving from one Princess to another here with Meghan Markle.

Despite trying to distance herself from the typical Royal duties, she is still married to a Prince – and as such, is still an A-lister!

The actress and princess actually wears Wild Bluebell by Jo Malone London. This particular perfume has been renowned for being extremely sweet but has musky overtones. 

It has hints of wildflowers such as jasmine and lilies, but seems to bring about thoughts of calmness and a soft touch.

The Bottom Line

A-list celebrities lead very different lives from most of us, but when it comes right down to it – they like what they like, just as we do. 

When it comes to perfume, this is no exception and as we can see, these celebrities don’t necessarily need to endorse a product to like it – sometimes, they simply love the smell of it, or it brings back positive memories!
