After losing a good portion of our daily routines because of the pandemic, we won't blame you for holding on to whatever is left for dear life. Achieving a sense of normalcy from even the smallest acts are golden these days, so whether yours is going out for a quick jog, doing your makeup, or dressing up, don't hesitate to stick to it.
In fact, if we were to suggest an addition to that "old normal" simulation process, it would have to be wearing a fragrance you love. A quick spray won't just remind you of life pre-being cooped up at home, you'll get a serotonin boost from smelling good, too—a win-win, if you ask us.
And before you feel awkward about "wasting" some perfume, here's some comforting news: You aren't the only one doing it. Ahead, we round up some celebrities who have shared the scents they love even while in quarantine:
Sarah has been on a Byredo kick lately, sharing photos of two scents from the brand on her feed. The Bal D'Afrique is for anyone who loves the combination of citrus and wood, while fans of a clean-smelling floral would love her new favorite, La Tulipe (€127 (around P6800), byredo.com).
Another Byredo fan we spotted on the 'gram is Rhian Ramos, who posed with a bottle of the Bal D'Afrique (€127 (around P6800), byredo.com).
Gucci's Mémoire d'une Odeur (price unavailable, Department Stores) is one of those scents that you either fall in love with at first spritz or pass on. Bela Padilla leans towards the former, and we're not surprised that she loves its nostalgic blend of flowers and herbs.
Heart Evangelista's penchant for anything classic extends to her scent collection, and she gave the ever-popular Chanel N°5 (P9550, Rustan's Makati) a shoutout recently as her daytime glamour must-have.
In her recent house tour, Bea Alonzo showed a portion of her massive scent collection. She singled out her bottle of the Kashieca Beautiful Body (price unavailable, Kashieca branches) spray among the bunch, who she also happens to be the muse for.
Speaking of loving your own, Nadine Lustre's self-made fragrance Luster (P2100, Lazada) has been making frequent appearances on her feed. If you're wondering what it smells like, Nadine once told Preview that it's a sweet floral—her favorite scent category.
Beauty vlogger Michelle Dy included a bottle of VV And Co.'s Vern (P1299, Lazada) on a spread of her current favorites. In case the name sounds familiar, that's because it's the fragrance line of her fellow content creators, Vern and Vernice Enciso!
