Paul Mescal wears this cult-favorite unisex fragrance

Paul Mescal's perfume is a cult classic that deserves a spot in your daily, scent rotation...

While no combo will ever beat Paul Mescal and those shorts, (or him and his 'Connell' chain, for that matter) the actor's signature scent comes pretty darn close—especially since Paul Mescal's perfume is actually already high on the list of best perfumes...

The fabled fragrance in question actually resides in the same family as Niall Horan's favorite cologne—Santal 33—and is equally luxe. Yes, you've probably already guessed it, Paul wears Le Labo's Another 13, whose blend of jasmine, moss and musk is a true 'skin scent.'

So, if you want to smell like the Normal People star, we've got you and if you want to, but can't quite swing for its pretty ka-ching price, we've got you there too...

What perfume does Paul Mescal wear?

It's widely acknowledged that Paul Mescal's mullet hair and overall style are just top-notch. We'd even go as far as to say he has the whole 'Quiet Luxury' vibe on lock, so it comes as no surprise that his scent is on par with his chic aesthetic.

The Aftersun actor let slip his everyday cologne during a video with GQ magazine, titled "10 things Paul Mescal can't live without," with it, of course, being among his ten essentials.

Another 13 itself, is a perfume like Glossier You, in the sense that it's an addictive and unique skin scent, with its animalist mix of ambroxyde (a synthetic animal musk), moss and jasmine. It's rich and hypnotic but perfect for everyday wear. 

In fact, Another 13 is a true 'Quiet Luxury' perfume staple, though you could say its price is far from quiet—a 1.7 fl oz bottle, for instance, costs $230.  This is where TikTok comes in! Much like with Olivia Rodrigo's perfume go-to, the app has found a slightly cheaper alternative to the famous scent.

TikTok has named this scent a close match to Another 13, with its combo of coconut, jasmine and salted musks.

Floral Street's Arizona Bloom has been named as a close swap for Another 13, thanks to its warm and spicy mix of coconut, jasmine and salted musks.

One shopper said in their review: "If you love Le Labo Another 13, I highly recommend. I have both fragrances and I cannot tell them apart."

While another wrote: "Another 13 = Arizona bloom, only difference is Arizona cuts a little sweeter with that coconut. The projection and longevity at least on my skin is amazing!" We're sold!
