Because I’m still having a PCD (post-concert depression) from the Stray Kids concert in Manila last weekend and I have been obsessing with perfumes too, I decided to research what perfumes Stray Kids use and where to buy them in the Philippines. We may not get close with the Stray Kids men=mbers (unless you’re lucky enough to attend their fan meet and greet) but we can at least know what they smell like by trying their favorite perfumes.
Perfumes Worn by Stray Kids Members
Versace Eros – This one is mentioned a lot by Stray Kids’ stan Twitter accounts. According to Jeremy Fragrance, a perfume influencer, “[Versace Eros] fragrance is a clubbing fragrance this is fun this is sexy this is not for the office or school.” And its top notes are mint, green apple, and lemon. You can buy a full bottle of this in Zalora and Rustans. But if you don’t want to commit to a full bottle yet, you can buy a decant here. Also available in Nordstrom for $130.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille – This one has several sources from Tiktok to Twitter and some said they saw this from “Chan’s Room” his weekly live stream. I remember trying this perfume when I was in Sephora in Orchard, Singapore. It didn’t really have an impact on me (just like the rest of Tom Ford’s perfumes). For me, it smells like tobacco so much but the dry down has some hints of cocoa and vanilla. I don’t remember smelling fruity or powdery. You can buy this from Lazada Tom Ford Beauty, Rustans, and the 2ml decant here. Also available in Macy’s for $295.
The Body Shop Black Musk Eau de Toilette – In an interview with W Korea in August 2021, Bang Chan said that he is using this. According to The Body Shop, Black Must have a deep, dark, sensual scent. It has notes of spicy pink pepper and creamy ylang-ylang, combine with fierce musk and a sensuous vanilla base to leave you feeling empowered to express yourself. I couldn’t find any EDT version of this online, but you can buy its fragrance mist version on The Body Shop Lazada page.
Diptyque Eau Duelle Eau de Toilette – I smelled this once in the store, if I remember correctly this is a vanilla scent but not sweet vanilla, it’s herbal vanilla and quite woodsy too. You can buy a full bottle in Zalora and Rustans. You can buy decant here. Also available in Saks Fifth Avenue for $175.
Chanel Bleu de Chanel – This is a popular perfume. Joshua of Seventeen is also using this. It has a citrus-woody fragrance for men. Deep, fresh, intense, vibrant, sensual & seductive. Top notes of the citrus accord, vetiver & pink pepper. Heart notes of grapefruit, dry cedar tones & labdanum. You can buy this in Zalora and a decant is available here. Also available in Harrods for UKD119.
Gucci Guilty Pour Femme– I created a TikTok version of this post and some Changbin stans commented that he used Han’s Gucci Guilty perfume and bought one for himself in an airport. I couldn’t find a store that sells a full bottle of this one but you can buy a decant from this Shopee store. Also available in Ultra for $155.
Gucci A Chant for The Nymph – Hyunjin revealed that he is using this perfume that he bought from Dubai airport during a VLive broadcast. Unfortunately, I couldn’t any store that sells this in the Philippines, even decants. But this is available in Saks Fifth Avenue for $380.
Byredo Blanche – This is one of my favorite perfumes to the point I already got 2 bottles of it. A lot of Korean celebrities actually love this too like Park Seo Joon and I didn’t know Hyunjin is also on this list. It has a musky, soapy, powdery scent with a little hint of floral but smells very fresh. You can buy those two Byredo perfumes in the stores I listed here. Also available in Nordstrom for $205 and in Cult Beauty for UKD188.
Byredo Rose of No Man’s Land – I remember trying this in Byredo’s flagship store in Ngee Ann City Mall in Singapore to see if this will suit my mom. I ended up not buying it because I remember it to have a very rose flower scent, and that’s not my mom’s style. But I can why Hyunjin is using this, if you notice his perfume list, he likes floral scents. You can buy those two Byredo perfumes in the stores I listed here. Also available in Nordstrom for $205 and Cult Beauty for UKD140.
YSL Libre – Not sure if Hyunjin is really using this perfume or if he and Felix just attended the launch event in Paris. Nevertheless, they were photographed with this and Stays are buying it. The top notes are Lavender, Mandarin Orange, Black Currant, and Petitgrain. You can buy their 30ml bottle in Zalora and a decant in Shopee. Also available in Harrods for UKD82.
Dior Sauvage – This is also Vernon of Seventeen’s perfume. It has an aromatic “Fougere fragrance” for modern men. Classy, crisp, spicy, clean, warm & uplifting. Top notes of Sichuan pepper & Calabrian bergamot. Heart notes of geranium, lavender, elemi, pink pepper, vetiver & patchouli. Base notes of cedar, labdanum & ambroxan. Recommended for spring or summer wear. This is available in Zalora, and you can buy a 2ml decant here. Also available in Nordstrom for $150.
Gucci Guilty Pour Femme– Another Gucci perfume. It has scents of Mandora smoothed out by Bergamot and Pink Pepper (top notes), Lilac contrasted with Geranium oil (middle notes), and Patchouli with Ambery scents (base notes). I couldn’t find a store that sells a full bottle of this one but you can buy a decant from this Shopee store. Also available in Nordstrom for $120.
YSL Libre – Just like I mentioned above, I’m not sure if Felix is really using this perfume or if he and Hyunjin just attended the global launch event in Paris. You can buy their 30ml bottle in Zalora and a decant in Shopee. Also available in Harrods for UKD82.
Flower By Kenzo – I think Skz has a thing for floral feminine scents. This one has notes of violet, rose, and powdery. You can buy 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml bottles in Rustans. Also available in Macy’s for $129.
L’EAU KENZO Pour Homme – This one is also a floral scent but it also has citrus notes and aromatic. You can buy 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml bottles in Rustans. This is also available in Sephora for UKD53.
Kenzo Homme Eau de Parfum – This is a woody marine scent. It’s a fresh scent with the green and woody scent of pine and sandalwood, evocative of a walk by the sea along a tree-lined path. You can buy this Kenzo Global Store for $95. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a local store that sells this, but try Les Senteurs PH, they’re a reliable perfume shopper in the Philippines.
Kenzo Homme Marine – This perfume for men has the scents of a sunny and salty summer day. Inspired by the sensuality of skin emerging from the ocean, fresh and full of salt. I think this one is new because I couldn’t find a store that sells this yet. I spotted this from Felix’s new cover in W Korea.
I couldn’t find any perfume that Seungmin actually uses. But according to Reddit and Twitter stans (take note I’m not sure if this is legit) he uses these two:
Yankee Candle Soft Blanket – It is said that Seungmin uses this candle. I haven’t tried this scent yet because it’s often sold out. But I can assure you that Yankee have good-quality candles and they don’t tunnel when you properly trim the wick. You can buy a jar from Lazada and Shopee. And it is also available in Walmart for $56.
These aren’t exactly perfumes, they are perfumed shampoo that Han keeps saying smells so good in Skz Code episodes here and here. Jeongin later revealed in BBL app that these are the shampoos and treatments he uses:
KUNDAL SHAMPOO & TREATMENT (BABY POWDER) – I am familiar with this brand because this is the same brand as BTS Jungkook’s favorite candle. When it comes to their shampoo and hair treatment, the scent really last long. I.N later confirmed that he uses the Baby Powder scent (though the best seller from the brand is Cherry Blossom, just in case you’re curious). You can buy them on Kundal’s official Shopee page, they ship directly from Korea. This is also available in Walmart for $22.
MILK BAOBAB SHAMPOO (BABY POWDER) – Another brand that I use because of Jungkook, but he uses the body wash not the shampoo. Just like Kundal, Milk Baobab’s scent last long on the body too. The scent is very lovely too. You can buy their shampoo, body wash, and lotion in Shopee.
CURLY SHYLL – I’m not familiar with this one yet. But it is said to be a calming and moisturizing shampoo. It contains a damask rose, rosemary, and tea tree. It is available in Shopee.

Upon researching what perfumes Stray Kids use, I learned that they partnered with the perfume brand “Clean” last year. they even had a spring-themed pictorial in 1st Look Magazine. Below are the scents of Stray Kids members in the Clean perfume line:
