Blackpink’s Lisa On Being The CELINE Haute Parfumerie Ambassador And Why Scent Is So Emotional

When you’ve taken the K-pop world (actually, the entire world) by storm, garnered over 68 million Instagram followers and landed a make-up collaboration with MAC, what do you do next? For Blackpink’s Lalisa Manobal aka Lisa, she turned her focus to fashion. Having made her debut runway appearance for CELINE just a few days ago, the Thai singer and global megastar just landed her latest role as ambassador for the fashion house’s Haute Parfumerie collection.

Speaking on her newest venture into the world of high fashion fragrance, the rapper and singer said, ‘As each CELINE perfume has a strong character and stands out individually, I also look forward to revealing diverse and confident perspectives of myself as a CELINE perfume global ambassador.’

From wearing perfume simply to hang out at home with her cats, to the emotional effect fragrance can hold in just a single drop, ELLE caught up exclusively with Lisa to chat all things CELINE and scent…

Describe a scent memory: where and when and why it has stayed in your mind?

‘Recalling the scent from a place gives me comfort. While visiting Nice, France for the CELINE perfume campaign. I remember the sparkling light of the beach, the cool breeze, and the scent of the green grass that made me feel like I was in paradise. For me, Nice was already a city of scent and breeze, and this made me fall in love with the city.’

In what ways, for you, are scents associated with emotions and feelings?

‘For me, scent is a single drop that can make emotions and feelings become more vivid or even ambiguous. There are times when I want to be deeply immersed in my emotions – whether this means being depressed or excited. When I layer in scent, emotions and feelings become much stronger. In another way, I feel like I am on a constant journey in my moods and emotions with the scent.’

In what ways, for you, are scents nostalgic, conjuring up the past?

‘I think the best way to remember passing moments is with scent. Even if the experience fades, traces of photos and scent linger for some time. Sometimes, when I want to bring back memories of a day, I will sprinkle the perfume I wore on a photoshoot. And I can feel the happiness in my skin as if I’m reliving it.’

What connection do you have between your style and your scent? Do you wear different perfumes depending on what you are wearing?

‘When choosing perfume, the first consideration is whether the scent goes well with today’s look, and then I think of who I’m meeting with on that day. On a brunch date with friends, dressed in my favourite boxy jacket with denim pants, I would wear a fresh citrus fragrance. I would choose a woody scent for when I have dinner plans. I believe there are separate scents that pair with different occasions, so I was happy to discover that CELINE perfume also proposes scents for day and evening.’

When you wear perfume, is it about what you like to smell on your skin or the effect you think it may have on others?

‘I do think that one’s scent affects the first impression of a person or a space. I choose a perfume with special care when meeting someone for the first time. Sometimes, in order to make a stronger impression, I might avoid too much make-up or accessories, instead focusing on wearing a special perfume.’

Which of the CELINE perfumes will become your signatures?

‘If I have to pick one from the CELINE perfume collection, it would be ‘EAU DE CALIFORNIE’. It is inspired by California nights – the summer nights that I love – and I could spray it for the rest of my life. When I sprinkle a little ‘EAU DE CALIFORNIE’ atop the sofa while spending a leisurely evening with my dogs and cats, it feels like I’m in heaven. How could you not love this perfume?’
