Multi-talented, Indian-born actress, singer, and entrepreneur Priyanka Chopra has become a modern-day Bollywood to Hollywood icon.
Winning Miss World 2000 began Priyanka’s trajectory to stardom, where she featured in many Bollywood movies and won an array of awards for her acting skills. She quickly became one of the most sought-after actresses in the Indian film industry.
Known for her versatility and range as an actor, 2015 was the seizing of Priyanka’s international recognition for her role as Alex Parrish on the popular ABC drama series Quantico.
Since her move to The United States and marriage to famed teen boy band member Nick Jonas from the Jonas Brothers, as of 2022, Priyanka has been named a Top 100 Global Icon and slotted in BBC’s Top 100 Women of the Year.
We may have a timeline of her career but let’s get to know the Bollywood actress a little better by taking a brief look into the star’s favorite fragrances.
Priyanka noted in a 2017 interview with People Magazine that The One by Dolce & Gabbana was her favorite fragrance. Not long after, during her interview on Live! with Kelly, co-hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, she brought a different scent to share with strikingly similar notes. It was Donna by Trussardi.
Dolce & Gabbana, The One
During a 2017 interview conducted by People Magazine, Priyanka mentioned The One by Dolce & Gabbana was her favorite fragrance, quoting, “I’ve been wearing this scent a long time. I love its hints of Vanilla and Jasmine.”
The One, marketed for women, was launched in 2006 made by award-winning Perfumer Christine Nagel. The nose behind the scent has a resume abundant with some of the most luxurious and cult-loved brands and fragrances. A few on the roster include Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie, Giorgio Armani’s Si line, twenty-two Hermès fragrances, thirty-two Jo Malone perfumes, and last but not at all very least, three Cartier perfumes.
Many women and celebrities have embraced and endorsed the sophisticated yet elegantly feminine floral. Scarlett Johansson was the face of the Eau De Parfum from 2009 to 2011.
The composition opens with softly fresh mandarin, Peach, Bergamot, Litchi, and Mandarine. The Heart is finely blamed, with the notes of White Lily, Lily-of-the-Valley, and Jasmine, which gracefully intermingle with the fruity drop of plum. A powdery-woodsy Base cools to vetiver root, amber, musk, and vanilla.
The One’s timeless, rich complexion is available at most department stores and online retailers for 154 USD at a 100 ml bottle.
Priyanka Chopra’s Signature Scent
Compliments came from several talk show hosts when Priyanka was making her rounds promoting her major role in Quantico and Baywatch, the movie.
On the set of Live! With Kelly, co-hosted by Jimmy Kimmel during the commercial break, Priyanka showcased her famously fragrant perfume to Kelly, who had previously complimented the scent. Then, Kelly sprayed the audience with the fragrance. The crowd went wild.
Once back on live air, the bottle was briefly shown, and Kelly recapped what had just happened on break. The momentary revealing of Priyanka’s perfume made the internet swarm to find it.
It was Trussardi’s Donna, 2011.
Curated by Nathalie Lorson, a master perfumer responsible for creating fragrances by the likes of David Beckham, Coach, Boucheron [Hyperlink], Givenchy, and hundreds more fragrance line collections. His composition was released in conjunction with Trussardi’s 100th-anniversary celebration alongside the fragrance Uomo Trussardi.
The classical Italian-made perfume is abundantly radiant with bright citrus fruits of Italian Amalfi Lemon and Yuzu that passionately meet the Heart Notes of feminine flowers, Jasmine, African Orange Blossom, and Water Lotus. A succulent spiced woody Base cools into warm notes of Sandalwood, Vanilla, Patchouli, and Virginia Cedar.
Sensually alluring Donna is retailed as low as 50 USD for a 100 ml bottle.
We are still waiting to hear any recent updates on the Bollywood Queen’s newest editions to her fragrance collection. But we know from Priyanka’s taste in scents she seeks her home country.
Jasmine, Orange Blossom, and Vanilla are naturally grown in India. They’re stapled fragrances many women wear in the regions from the Himalayas to the furthest tips of South Asia.
Indian-grown Jasmine and Orange Blossom are some of the highest and best quality in the world.
No wonder she’s complimented so often; she wears her country’s pride on her sleeve.
