Fragrance Park Min-Young wears
What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim‘s female lead Park Min Young loves Creed’s Love in White for Summer. She revealed this in a “What’s in my bag” YouTube video and said that she always has it in her purse for a touch-up while on the go.
Mimicking the scent of a beautiful bouquet of white flowers combining the first blooms of spring with fresh grass on a base of white iris from Florence, rice husk, and vanilla to add depth and longevity, the fragrance is sensationally fresh, creamy, and floral.

Fragrance Red Velvet’s Joy wears

Plus, you’re going to love how beautiful the bottle is. The timeless EDP is presented in a beautiful bottle and topped with a ‘marzipan’ flower that reminds you of those seen in the windows of Sicilian confectioners.

The former is reminiscent of a sensual powdery floral bouquet of rose, violet and hawthorn, while Acqua Di Parma Magnolia Nobile Eau De Parfum bewitches with contrasting notes that remind you of the scent of a vibrant flowerbed in the grounds of a stately Italian villa.
Fragrance A Pink’s Na-Eun wears
