“A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.” – Christian Dior
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stand in the scent sillage of your favourite style icons? We might not get the honour of meeting our idol, but that doesn’t mean that it would stop most of us for being curios. From Princess Diana to Marilyn Monroe, here are the 5 style icons and their favourite scent.
Monroe, like millions of other women, admitted that she was in love with Chanel No.5 and that she even wore it to bed (and nothing else). But the famous eau de toilette was not her only favourite. In 2002 it was revealed that she had the fragrance, Floris Rose Geranium delivered in bulk to her at the Beverly Hills Hotel, under an alias while she was filming Some Like It Hot. In the present day, this scent has unfortunately been discontinued and only available as bath essence.
