It's official—we want to be part of Halle Bailey's [perfume] world (get it?!), as Ariel herself has let slip her go-to scent and it's one of the best floral perfumes around!

When it comes to selecting your new go-to spring perfume or date-night scent, there are a lot of options out there, which is why sometimes it helps to turn to your fave celeb to help narrow down your hunt for the best perfume for you. Take Rihanna's favorite perfume for instance, or Niall Horan's cult-favorite cologne—and now we have Halle Bailey's signature scent to add to the equation.

The Little Mermaid star has revealed that she's a fan of a certain designer scent that ticks more than a few boxes, as it features bursts of fresh florals, laced with a tantalizing sweet kick. Here's the DL on Halle's signature fragrance—plus the cute story of how it came to be her go-to...

Halle Bailey perfume: what scent does the actress wear?

It's a good day to be a lover of both floral perfume notes and vanilla perfumes as Halle's is a blend of both!

In an interview with Glamour in 2022, the actress and singer actually revealed that her perfume was not only her favorite but also a former staple in her sister, Chlöe Bailey's beauty arsenal—well until her sis pinched it, that is! 

Halle said: "I stole this one from Chlöe, but I didn’t steal the exact one because I got the upgraded one," before adding, "It’s this Valentino that I smelled on Chlöe first, and I was like, What is that? It smells so good, because it smells so sweet and has vanilla tones."


Valentino Donna Born In Roma Eau de Parfum 50ml

RRP: $130

This warm and floral fragrance has key notes of blackcurrant, jasmine grandiflorum, bourbon vanilla, and woody hints.

According to Glamour, the Valentino scent Halle was referring to was 'Born in Roma' which boasts notes of jasmine grandiflorum, with bursts of blackcurrant and warm bourbon vanilla. It's designed to be a little edgy and is the perfect day-to-night scent.

If you're looking to expand your collection of celebrity-approved scents, Halle isn't the only star we know who is partial to a hint of vanilla and jasmine! Dua Lipa's favorite perfume also features this combo, along with lavender, neroli and white musks.
