Barbie's Favorite Perfumes vs. Margot Robbie's Go-To Fragrance

It's no surprise that 'Barbie' will finish 2023 as the year's highest grossing film, edging out the wildly entertaining and popular Super Mario Bros. Movie. These were the two big hits of the year. As fragrance enthusiasts, it got us thinking what perfume Barbie would lean toward.

Margot Robbie, who absolutely dazzled as Barbie, is easier to decipher. Calvin Klein's Deep Euphoria seems to be the closest thing Margot has to a signature scent. This is a very popular seller here at Fragrance Familia. Robbie became the face of this fragrance in 2016 and has called it "bold, feminine, and sophisticated." Its notes of black rose, musk, and patchouli resonate with her personality and style.

Interestingly, Margot reportedly used specific perfumes to get into character for certain roles (see - perfumes can help us get in the zone!). For instance, in the upcoming "Barbie" movie, she wore a Diptyque fragrance that's described as musky, floral, and powdery, fitting the iconic doll's image.

What Do We Think Barbie's Signature Scent Could Be?

It's safe to say that the Familia team thinks that Barbie would reach for an ultra-feminine, perhaps a floral, fragrance. Vanilla might suit her well too. We think modern Barbie would indulge in these perfumes:

1.) Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb: This playful and flirty fragrance bursts with notes of mandarin, pear, bergamot, and jasmine, perfectly capturing Barbie's bubbly personality. The floral heart of rose, peach, and osmanthus adds a touch of sweetness, while the musky base provides lasting elegance.

2.) Ariana Grande Cloud: Light and airy like cotton candy, Cloud by Ariana Grande is a playful gourmand fragrance that Barbie would adore. The top notes of pear, lavender, and bergamot lead to a heart of whipped cream, praline, and coconut, leaving a warm, sugary trail that's as fun and flirty as Barbie herself.

The coffee and vanilla notes add an addictive warmth, while the pear and jasmine top notes provide a touch of sweetness. The patchouli and white musk base exudes confidence and sophistication, making it perfect for a glamorous night out.

4.) Creed Aventus for Her: As a powerful and independent woman, Barbie would appreciate the empowering spirit of Aventus for Her by Creed. The top notes of mandarin, grapefruit, and pink pepper lead to a heart of rose, jasmine, and violet, creating a fresh and floral melody. The base of sandalwood, musk, and ambergris adds depth and longevity, leaving a lasting impression just like Barbie herself. Ken could easily wear the male version: Creed Aventus for Men.

5.) Paris Hilton Gold Rush: Bold and unapologetically glamorous, Gold Rush by Paris Hilton is a fragrance fit for a queen like Barbie. The top notes of peach, pear, and orange blossom lead to a heart of jasmine, vanilla, and honey, creating a sweet and intoxicating aroma. The base of musk, sandalwood, and amber adds warmth and sensuality, making it a perfect evening scent.

6.) Calvin Klein's My Euphoria Eau de Parfum: Just like Robbie, Barbie would probably enjoy at least one perfume from the Calvin Klein line. This iconic fragrance is a timeless classic that embodies Barbie's femininity and grace. The top notes of pomegranate, persimmon, and passion fruit lead to a heart of lotus, orchid, and champaca, creating a soft and romantic aroma. The base of musk, cashmeran, and vanilla adds depth and warmth, making it a perfect everyday scent.

The base of praline, patchouli, and vanilla adds warmth and comfort, making it a perfect fragrance for any occasion.
