I Love the Scent but Hate the Person

I Love the Scent but Hate the Person 10 years ago
Do you ever get into one of those Dilemmas into thinking
Ooooh I love This Perfume it's one of my Favorites but it
ends up Endorsed and named after by a celebrity that you
Can not Stand Oh I have a Lot of Them

Here's my List
Heat by Beyoncé
Radiance by Britney Spears
Fairy Dust by Paris Hilton
Inspire by Christina Aguilera
Tease by Paris Hilton
Baby Phat Dare Me by Kimora Lee Simmons
Believe by Britney Spears
Nicole by Nicole Richie
Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian

People might think when they read this If you like don't like
that person just don't buy it just simple as that but that is
not just that easy It's the Scent and the notes that i'm looking
for
not the Endorsement

Ever Gotten this Dilemma?

Gwyneth Paltrow. For some reason I find her very annoying.

However, I also dislike "Pleasures", so I guess that this is not a good example.

Same story for Jennifer Aniston--the person and the perfume...

Never had that problem or let's say I wouldn't call it a dilemma in my case.

By now I exactly know what I like and what I don't and since I decided to venture in the celebrity market, I try almost everything.

In the beginning I - of course - looked at the celebrities I like, but there I found scents I don't like as well, so I widened the range and found some I liked from/with persons I don't like.

Now I rather look on the bottles, I would for example be more turned off by a shitty bottle - e.g. "Snooki" than the person - although this person is quite hardcore and I guess I wouldn't test for her ugly face alone although there's similarity to Britney's Fantasy.

Nevertheless I found tolerable scents by Paris Hilton (Tease) and Celine Dion (Signature) and I hate their guts for sure!
Even ordered Kim Kardashian's signature and Glam to see if this tuberose (and watermelon + fruits) can win me, although I find Kim quite stupid. Laughing

Oh wait Madonna is the best example. Those scents are lovely and I don't like the woman. Yeah, I guess there's something for everybody to like or hate, but you can widen it to advertising faces for "neutral" designer scents as well (Brad Pitt, Jude Law and son on...)

I must confess to trying but a few celebrity scents, but I have this very dilemma with Chanel. The woman is abominable (to me), but the style is impeccable, and many of the perfumes are pure genius.
I prefer to think of perfumes as works of perfumers though, it kind of alleviates the pain of wearing something endorsed by a questionable personality.

THIS + 1000

That's exactly how I feel about Chanel frags.

I do enjoy some Vera Wang fragrances, but the designer herself irks me. I don't know what it is--she comes off as a snob to me for whatever reason. Plus I fail to understand why she used Zoe Kravitz or Leighton Meester for models; so random.

I used to be OK with Taylor Swift, but lately she has been annoying me with her "boy problems" and music playing on almost every station here. But I don't really like her perfumes either.

There are some Victoria's Secret fragrances I enjoy, but the whole, "So who's turn is it to pose with the perfume bottle this week?" thing is getting old.
