Revealing kpop idols’ perfumes is now officially a series here on this site since I get some requests already from my Instagram. I get my perfume information from interviews like Vogue’s What’s in My Bag series and eagle-eyed fans on Twitter and Reddit spotting what their faves use based on their vlogs and other online content. So this time, I will do one of the most requested groups. What perfume do Enhypen members use and where to buy them in the Philippines? And yes, this is updated with the new perfumes they showed in the GQ Korea interview.
Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay – According to Jo Malone’s description, the scent is a burst of deep, tart blackberry juice, blending with the freshness of just-gathered bay and brambly woods. Vibrant and verdant. But in my opinion, it smells like blackberry and herbs. The leaf’s scent is too much. You can buy a bottle in Rustans and a 2ml decant here. Also available on Jo Malone website for $80.
Penhaligon The Blazing Mr. Sam – Heesung showed this in their GQ Korea interview, and said he bought this in the airport. This has a warm spicy scent, woody with notes of tobacco and cinnamon. A lot of people say smells like other perfumes such as Oud Dream by Montale and Halfeti (which is also from the same brand). Unfortunately, Penhaligon is not available in the Philippines, but you can try inquiring in Les Senteurs, a perfume collector and shopper. They are my friends and I go to person to source for niche perfumes. But online, you can buy this in Bergdorf Goodman for $310.
Diptyque Tam Dao – This perfume is for both men and women and it’s a very woody scent. The sandalwood and cedar are quite heavy. That’s all I can say since it’s not my kind of scent. You can buy this in Trunc, Rustans, and a 2ml decant here. Also available in Nordstrom for $175.
Dior Sauvage – Also used by Vernon of Seventeen and Han of Stray Kids, it has an aromatic Fougere fragrance for modern men. Classy, crisp, spicy, clean, warm & uplifting. Top notes of Sichuan pepper & Calabrian bergamot. Heart notes of geranium, lavender, elemi, pink pepper, vetiver & patchouli. Base notes of cedar, labdanum & ambroxan. Recommended for spring or summer wear. This is available in Zalora, and you can buy a 2ml decant here. Also available in Nordstrom for $150.
Kilian Kologne Shield of Protection – He showed this in the GQ Korea interview with a box! This is a straightforward performance for me, woody, and aromatic and the citrus is quite zesty. I actually smelled too many perfumes like this from Korean brands. Kilian is not available in the Philippines but you can inquire again to Les Senteurs. But online this is available in Saks Fifth Avenue for $290.
Floris London No. 007 – Another perfume that Jay showed in the GQ Korea interview. He said this was a gift from a fan that he really liked so he bought a new bottle after finishing it. I think Jay likes zesty woody perfumes because this one has almost the same notes as the Kilian perfume above. But unlike that one, this one has some floral particularly rose notes and the dry down is soapy. The brand is also not available in the Philippines, so again, you may want to inquire about Les Senteurs. But international fans can buy this online in Neiman Marcus for $310.
Coco Noir EDP – This one is a perfume for women but I think it suits men too. It’s a fruity scent that dries down with a floral scent and is a little heavy on the vanilla. It doesn’t last long though. I couldn’t find a store that sells a full bottle of this in the Philippines but I found a shop that sells a 2ml decant here. Available in Walmart for $48.
Daniel’s Truth Bombshell Oil Perfume – Sunghoon showed this perfume in the GQ Korea interview too and Heesung likes it so much he wanted to steal it from him. This is an indie perfume brand born in California (according to their website and Instagram). I’m not yet familiar with it yet. But some fans who already got this Bombshell oil perfume said it’s comparable to Byredo Blanche (so I may buy this too because that’s one of my top favorite perfumes of all time. So stay tuned for my follow-up review.) You can buy this perfume in Shopee for Php2900. In their official online shop, it cost KRW54000 (around PHP2300). Daniel’s Truth also has a US online shop where you buy this oil perfume for $114.
Body Fantasies Pure Fragrance Body Spray His Clean Laundry – I’m sure Sunghoon loves clean and fresh scents because this is the third one on the list now. He showed this in the “What’s In My Bag” video on their official YouTube channel. Body Fantasies is a drugstore brand, affordable and available in Olive Young for $14 (Use my code ALYPICKS12 to get a discount) and also in the Philippines through Watsons and Shopee. But heads up, Clean Laundry is often sold out in the Philippines. But you can buy it from this Shopee reseller.
Jo Loves A Fragrance Paintbrush Pomelo – Also showed in the same What’s In My Bag video on their YouTube Channel. I’m not familiar with this brand yet, and I just know Heesung said the said is so-so. You can buy this on Jo Loves website for £40.
Lush Love Perfume – I honestly haven’t bought any Lush perfumes yet. It’s because I always pass by their store and find their scent too strong for me. But that’s just me. This one I actually tested in their store in Singapore. It says to have floral, citrus, sensual jasmine, and warm cinnamon. But for me the citrus is just too strong it’s the only one I smelled. Lush has several branches in the Philippines. But you can also buy this in their online store here.
Prada Infusion de Cèdre EDP – Also shown in their GQ Korea interview, this is a unisex perfume that has a woody fragrance with a hint of iris, violet, warm spicy, and powdery. The dry down has some faint incense scent. It’s clean, crisp, and elegant. You can buy a bottle in the SM Department store their online store here. You can also buy this in Nordstrom for $180.
Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin – This cologne is citrus and aromatic, very zesty. It’s a unisex scent but it leans towards men due to the woody dry down. You can buy a full bottle of this in Zalora, Rustans, and a 2ml decant here. Also available in Walmart for $195.
Aquaflor Firenze Orphyca – Niki actually showed this twice already. The first was from a live while the second one was in the GQ Korea interview so he probably loves this perfume so much. It has a fruity powdery fragrance while the dry down is kind of creamy. A good perfume for the spring and summer seasons. Unfortunately, this brand is not available in the Philippines. But you can try inquiring in Les Senteurs, a perfume collector and shopper. You can also buy this on Aqua Flor Firenze official website for €165.
Whenever I write a post about kpop group members’ perfumes, I always start with their leader but not this time. Because I couldn’t find any perfume used by the Enhypen leader. Someone joked it must be Jonhson’s Baby Cologne because Jungwon looks like he smells like one but kidding aside, I read that he doesn’t use one and is kind of allergic to perfumes. And he just confirmed in their GQ Korea interview that he doesn’t really use one while the other members are showing off their perfumes. He can’t even believe that a person (i.e. Jay) can finish a whole bottle of perfume, adorable.
So far, these are the perfumes that Enhypen members use based on my research. If I find more I will update this article. If there’s a group you want me to feature just send me a DM on my Instagram.
