They say that if want to get to know someone without asking too many questions, ask them what their favorite perfume is. It'll tell you more about their personality more than anything, and you'd get a good fragrance recommendation while you're at it. With that in mind, we took things a notch higher and asked Preview girls to reveal their signature scent, and we're letting their answers speak for themselves.
"I like Byredo Bal d'Afrique. I love it 'cos it's a very well-balanced scent. I usually don’t buy overly popular scents but I couldn't resist this one for how pleasant it smells."
BYREDO Bal d'Afrique Eau de Parfum, price unavailable, Byredo
2. Camille Co
"I'm currently loving Jo Malone's Poppy and Barley! It's such a fresh and feminine scent but gentle to the nose. My all-time favorite though is Lanvin's Jeanne. It smells so sophisticated and delicate!"
JO MALONE LONDON Poppy and Barley Cologne, P4100, Rustan's; LANVIN Jeanne Eau de Parfum, price unavailable, Department Stores
3. Ida Anduyan
"It has to be Le Labo Santal 33. I love wearing base-y unisex scents and it's so crazy how every time i wear it, meet with someone, beso or stand close to them, they’re like: 'Santal 33, right?' It’s cool."
LE LABO Santal 33 Eau de Parfum, price unavailable, Le Labo
4. Bea Marin
"Chanel Coco Noir is my fave scent that I wear only on special occasions. It has a more modern and youthful take to the classic Chanel No. 5 and I simply fell in love with it the moment I saw it a perfume store."
CHANEL Coco Noir Eau de Parfum, price unavailable, Rustan's
"I have a lot, but I mostly use Aerin's Linen Rose or Clean Skin as everyday scents, and Elie Saab Le Parfum in White or Tom Ford Lost Cherry for special occasions. I like understated scents that go with my floral print dresses!"
TOM FORD Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum, P17,500, Rustan's Makati; AERIN Linen Rose Eau de Cologne, price unavailable, SM Megamall
"It would be Glossier You because it's such a fresh scent to wear. I also love how light it smells and that it stays on the body!"
GLOSSIER You, P3950, Calyxta
"I have always been obsessed with scents, that’s why I switch every so often. But one that has always been a constant for me is Nirvana White by Elizabeth and James. It’s a tender musky scent that can easily be used from day till night (such a plus for me)."
ELIZABETH AND JAMES Nirvana White Eau de Parfum, price unavailable, Elizabeth and James
8. Mari Jasmine
The scent I'm using now is Thé Noir 29 by Le Labo. I love everything about it—it's beautifully woodsy and earthy without being overbearing. I love the way it reacts with my skin and that it lasts for hours.

9. Janeena Chan
"Here are my faves: Guerlain Pera Granita, a light, summery, fruity and fresh pear scent, and also Burberry Her. [It's] sweet and light, too!"

10. Sarah Lahbati
"My all time favorite is Jo Malone's Peony & Blush Suede as well as their limited edition Tropical Cherimoya. I always go for a floral and fresh scent. I love the tropical one because it's unique and reminds me of being by the ocean."

"Right now it's Le Labo Another 13. The smell is fresh and light and it really lasts the whole day."

12. Kylie Verzosa
"Dior Blooming Bouquet is one of my favourite scents. It's light and floral, sweet, elegant and romantic at the same time! Very feminine, just how I would want to feel. For a special event I love Tom Ford's F***** Fabulous. It's unisex, smoky, deep, yet light and sweet. A complex fragrance, and for me very high fashion."

13. Nicole Andersson
"It's Poppy & Barley from Jo Malone. I like it 'cause it's floral and juicy at the same time."

14. Pia Wurtzbach
"My signature scent is Hypnotic Poison by Dior. This perfume has been around for a while but I love it. It never gets old for me. It's an oriental vanilla scent. I love scents that are spicy rather than sweet. I've been using it since 2015 so I'd like to think this was my winning scent."
