Sometimes, all it takes for you to feel elegant in your same old T-shirt and jeans is wearing a posh scent. Like putting on nice shoes or jewelry, scents can leave a strong, invisible impact. To quote author and fragrance expert Patrick Süskind, "odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions." 


Fortunately, Heart Evangelista will make it easier for you to snag that classy scent (because we all know how overwhelming perfume shopping can be!). In her YouTube video, she talked about her perfume collection and mentioned some of her favorite fragrances that make her feel expensive. 

Her recommendations include a lot of eau de parfums (EDP). Containing 15% oil, this type of fragrance is the most potent, meaning its scent lasts the longest. "They're a bit pricey but definitely worth it because it will last you the whole day," notes Heart. 

1. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Gentle Fluidity

Heart describes this as a fresh, not-so-strong "floral" scent. Boosting the impact of her crisp, tailored outfits, she added: "It's something that I would wear with a really nice crisp white polo. It's very—how do you say it?—amoy mayaman."

Both the gold and the silver editions of Gentle Fluidity are available at Rustan's.

2. Chanel No. 5 

"It's very strong [and] musky... When you smell it, you'd really [feel] elegant," notes Heart. "This is actually one of the perfumes that were found at Marilyn Monroe's house before she died so this is a classic." 

Towards the end of her vlog, the actress also revealed her go-to colognes that are, of course, easier on the pocket! According to Heart, she likes to spritz her colognes all over her body. "You usually have to spray over and over again because the alcohol content is higher so there's less fragrance concentration." 


1. Jo Malone London Tropical Cherimoya 

"This is my adult version of cologne," says Heart. "It's very playful; it's not too serious."

Here's where you can find the Jo Malone London boutique nearest you.

2. Bath and Body Works Dark Kiss Mist

Meet Heart's "ultimate favorite" cologne. In fact, she constantly hoards bottles of these in Greenhills! "This is something that I use every night and I also love the lotion." Additionally, Heart noted that the matching lotions or creams that come with colognes and perfumes are pretty useful in locking in scents, making them "last the whole day."


You can buy a bottle of fragrance from Lazada.
