I know I have a million things to be working on (2 episodes of Hen Lab, concert reports, etc...) but I thought I'd share with you my findings from a night where I couldn't sleep and decided to look some very important stuff up.

I haven't really seen talk about it among foreign fans at all but in Japan it's quite common for fans to "investigate" into what colognes/perfumes celebrities use (I've had Japanese friends just casually ask me what perfume [insert Johnnys I like here] wears as if it's just common knowledge). If you've been to Japan you may have seen some stores that sell perfumes putting photos of celebrities next to certain ones (I see this quite often in Harajuku), this means that that people have figured out that that celebrity uses that perfume. ANYWAY, basically lots of Japanese fans like to know what perfume their favourite idols use.

So lately I've been having difficulty sleeping what with my plethora of mental health issues and one night when I was lying awake as usual at 4AM I started googling around for what perfume/cologne NEWS (& other Johnnys) use and since I've never seen foreign fandom discuss it I thought I'd share it in case anyone is interested (I know it's creepy but?????? Somehow fascinating, like THIS IS WHAT THEY SMELL LIKE, THEY ARE REAL HUMAN BEINGS!!!!! Okay yeah, I know, I'm creepy)


Incanto Charms by Salvatore Ferragamo
{ amazon link }
Comments: ... this is a women's perfume... and I kind of really want it (it sounds like it smells really good - "floral-fruity fantasy", there's passionfruit and honeysuckle and roses, gaaah it sounds like everything I love in a fragrance)


Jovan White Musk
{ amazon link }
Comments: Page says it's "floral and citrus crisp and fresh". I was surprised at how extremely cheap this is (1000 yen/10$USD!?)


Jeanne Arthes Sexy Boy
{ amazon link }
Comments: Koyama's said before he doesn't usually wear any fragrances and only uses it during concerts (FYI people usually find out what fragrances they use based on the smell of the towels they throw to fans at concerts) so he wouldn't be wearing this often, but still. ~the smell of concert Koyama~


Insense Ultramarine by Givenchy
{ amazon link }
Comments: Apparently this is a floral scent but ~still manly~. It's the most expensive one out of these 4, as expected of our pretentious Shige-sensei. This cologne is pretty popular among Johnnys, I saw it come up a lot

So yeah, do with that information what you will... I'm currently very tempted to buy the one Tegoshi uses just because it seriously sounds so nice!! and it's cheap!! I'm super into fragrances and floral/fruit ones are my absolute favourite so

※ SOURCE: I looked at various Japanese fansites and they all listed the same stuff, but here's the main source I was looking at, and here is another that lists those of Arashi, Kanjani8, NEWS, Kisumai, and Hey Say Jump and includes a few other ones not listed on other sites (I guess some are inconsistent across time which is understandable)
