It was revealed in Get It Beauty (a Korean beauty program) that the actress uses Penhaligon’s, Orange Blossom. The fruity scents of oranges and orchards mix well in this scent revealing a splendid smell of summer scent.
Park Min Young - Creed’s Love in White for Summer

She revealed her beauty secret on her personal Youtube channel. This fragrance bursts with fruity notes followed by a combination of woody and floral notes to top off its romantic scent.
Lee Hyeri - Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia
Reply 1988 Lee Hyeri’s favourite scent is one of the early revelations revealed to her fans. She shared that she uses Jo Malone’s London English Pear & Freesia in one of her vlogs.
