The members of SB19 are teaching us that a well-stocked fragrance collection is an essential part of every man’s grooming arsenal
There is no denying that the P-Pop boy band is one of the most popular and successful groups of their generation, both locally and internationally. With the many accolades they have been receiving and the musical records they have been setting, the group is continuously giving us a multitude of reasons to celebrate and be proud of our Filipino identity.
In addition to their great performances, these idols are also setting an example for other gentlemen with the care they take in how they present themselves. And today, let’s explore and talk about their interesting selection of perfumes. From Justin’s penchant for a spicy perfume to Pablo’s budget yet fragrant choice, these guys are reminding us of the value of maintaining a pleasant aroma at all times.

Josh, Jo Malone’s Oud and Bergamot Intense
In one of his live videos, Josh mentioned that he wears an Oud and Bergamot Intense perfume from Jo Malone. In an address to his supporters, he revealed that it was the cologne he was wearing when he tossed his shirt to the audience after their group had finished performing. Oud and Bergamot made its grand entrance onto the scene back in 2010. The balance of woodiness and citrus in this fragrance makes for a clean, crisp aroma with plenty of richness and depth—the ideal choice for an idol with such magnetic charm.
Ken, Chanel’s Bleu De Chanel EDP
Clearly, Ken’s discerning taste is not limited to his impeccable fashion sense, but also extends to his selection of fragrances. In response to a fan’s request, the group’s main dancer, lead singer, and lead rapper proudly shared on one of his live streams while his hair is getting fixed that he uses Chanel’s Bleu De Chanel EDP. This fragrance exudes an air of unpredictability and unquestionable boldness. It gives off a fresh, clean, and profoundly sensual appeal and has a woody, aromatic scent that shows the character of a man who chooses his own fate with independence and determination and is not afraid to defy convention—words that perfectly capture the essence of Felip.
Stell, Jo Malone’s English Pear and Freesia Cologne
In one of his videos, the charismatic Stell divulged his choice for the fragrance that accompanies him through each and every day, which is none other than Jo Malone’s English Pear and Freesia Cologne. With notes of amber, patchouli, and woods, this scent evokes the sensual freshness of ripe pears enveloped in a bouquet of white freesias, capturing the spirit of autumn. In the same video, the main vocalist and lead dancer for SB19 also said that he likes to experiment with other fragrances like Gucci and Tom Ford.
Justin, Hermès’ Terre d’Hermès
Although Justin is the group’s youngest member, it is clear from his choice of cologne that he is a contemporary gentleman. During one of his live video streams, he mentioned how much he adores wearing Terre d’Hermès. This is a very intriguing choice considering that not many guys may enjoy the woody, spicy scent of this Hermès perfume. But Justin’s sophisticated choice cannot be disputed because this fragrance took home the 2007 FiFi Award for Fragrance of the Year Men’s Luxe.
Pablo, Ian Darcy
Last but not least, Pablo surprised their followers by answering a fan’s inquiry about his cologne during a live broadcast. SB19’s “Pinuno’s” choice is an Ian Darcy fragrance. For those unfamiliar, this fragrance is a homegrown perfume label. While Pablo was not able to share his current specific scent preference, he did emphasize the significance of consistently adorning himself with a cologne, particularly for men who find themselves perspiring most of the time due to their active pursuits. He definitely showed that investing in one’s own well-being does not have to break the bank and that what really matters is how one portrays an aura of confidence and conviction.
