Prince always wore women’s perfume. The perfect Christmas gift for men?

Despite all outward appearances, the late pop legend Prince Rogers Nelson was a manly man who preferred to smell like a meadow of flowers.

The beloved musician, who died in 2016, avoided men’s colognes because they can be as subtle as a punch in the mouth.

“He was very big on perfume and so was I,” Prince’s ex-wife Mayte Garcia tells People.com exclusively. “I don’t know if a lot of people know this about him, but he always wore women’s perfumes instead of men’s colognes. He had done that before I even met him.”

Garcia incorporated some of Prince’s favorite scents into her candles, which she began making during the pandemic.

“I started making them out of desperation as a way of raising money for my dog rescue mission,” she says. “And I got really good at it! And then the first candle I made, Eternal Love, did really well, but there was a twist — the smell was a perfume he wore,” she says.

Garcia said Prince’s favorite scent was Dune by Dior.

“He wore Dune all the time, so I got the scent in oil form and added a little smokiness and sweetness to it. He also liked Samsara by Guerlain, and Thierry Mugler’s Angel,” she says. “He loved the florals. He was also into Carolina Herrera, though he couldn’t wear it around me because I’m allergic to jasmine. But he always smelled amazing, even when he was onstage. He never stank!”
