Sometimes you’ll look at a celebrity and know immediately what it’s like to hang out with them. Brad Pitt, for example, is clearly smug and pretentious, especially when he’s stoned. I imagine Al Pacino to be kind of jumpy and paranoid, Guy Fieri to be steeped in a rendered glaze of self-loathing, and Jessica Simpson to be a terrible driver and constantly snacking.
These are things we can glean merely from watching their movies or shows, and taking cursory glances at the tabloids. Some celebrities, however, have such outsize personas with clearly tangible animas, that it actually stimulates the olfactory senses.
So what do the famous folks of today smell like? Let’s see!
Taylor Momsen: Marlboro Lights, Cheapo Bodywash, Hair Extension Glue
Katy Perry: Stale Pez, rubbing alcohol
Ben Stiller: Aftershave, toothpaste, self-doubt
Courtney Love: Melting plastic, Marlboro Reds, Lady Speed Stick
Keira Knightley: Unicorn tears, Splenda
Tyra Banks: “Angel” by Thierry Mugler, Ice Cream, Baby Powder, Weave Glue
Angelina Jolie: Leather, baby formula, the faint odor of an electrical fire
Jennifer Aniston: Green tea body wash, Zoloft, despair
Matthew McCounaghey: Hemp soap, Bengay, resin
Gwyenth Paltrow: The most expensive yoga studio ever built
