Because A-list celebrities have access to the most expensive and exclusive skincare, makeup and fragrances, it's easy to assume that they use these expensive beauty products exclusively. And while they most likely have an impressive collection of eye-wateringly expensive fragrances, you might be surprised to hear that some of their favourite perfumes can be found in your local Boots. Yes, really. It turns out that celebrities such as Kate Moss and Gigi Hadid love an affordable fragrance just as much as we do.
After all, not everyone can drop £200 on a new fragrance, but affordable fragrances on the other hand allow you to build a fragrance wardrobe over time. So you can have an everyday signature scent for the daytime and then opt for something a little more exciting for the evening. And of course, you might want to wear a different scent for the summer months or bring out winter fragrances once the seasons change.

If we hear that something is good enough for Zendaya, then we want in—especially if it means that we can smell like superstars for less than £100. The clean-smelling chypre fragrance has juicy notes of bergamot, pear and pink peppercorn upon the first sprite, before settling into a jasmine absolut and a confident base of white musk, vanilla, patchouli and cedarwood.
5. Ashley Graham: Chloé Eau de Parfum for Her
Model Ashley Graham reportedly loves Chloé Eau de Parfum for Her.
In an interview with Vogue, model Ashley Graham revealed that she wears Chloé's classic fragrance, Eau De Parfum for Her, and she apparently cannot live without it.

6. Hailey Bieber: Ariana Grande Perfume
Hailey Bieber has mentioned that she loves Ariana Grande's perfumes.
"I really like Ariana Grande's perfumes—that's not a joke—I think they smell amazing, plus they're fun and playful," the supermodel told Sheer Luxe last year. "I do like to switch up the perfumes I wear on a regular basis, though, as I get bored of them quite easily." Ariana has launched several fragrances now, but it's likely that Hailey has the latest launch, God Is a Woman. It features top notes of ambrette and pear, before settling into orris, Turkish rose petals and Madagascar vanilla. If you're a fan of Glossier's You, you'll like this.
7. Dua Lipa: YSL Libre
Dua Lipa is the fact of YSL's recently launched Libre fragrance.
Singer Dua Lipa revealed in a British Vogue interview that YSL Libre is one of her "forever fragrances." She says, "I've been so lucky that since doing the Libre campaign, I have been given lots of miniature bottles, and now I know this is just going to be my scent forever. I'm also a little bit biased because I got to choose it, too," she said. Not only is the bottle eye-catching, but the juice inside smells pretty good too. Moroccan orange blossom and French lavender open this scent, before enveloping jasmine sambac and white musk takes centre stage. Expect compliments with this one.
8. Zoë Kravitz: YSL Black Opium Extreme
Zoë Kravitz is the face of YSL's iconic scent, Black Opium, but one of her favourites is the Extreme version.
Black Opium is one of YSL's most iconic scents, but Zoë Kravitz favours the brand's Extreme version. "It's a little bit of a deeper smell," she tells Elle. "These coffee tones are really beautiful and maybe slightly more earthy and masculine, which I think to me is even sexier. … We can all use little sensual perfume for sure." This statement-making scent is not one for wallflowers. With heady base notes of black coffee, vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean, it's the type of fragrance that walks into the room before you do.
