Marisa Tomei Fragrance Awards

Are you sensitive to smell?

Marisa Tomei: Yes! One night, one of my co-stars wore fragrance on stage [in “The Realistic Joneses”], when she doesn’t normally, and it really threw me. Luckily it was a very pleasant scent and it added another dimension to her character. When I create my roles, I always pick something for my particular character.

Gwendoline Christie Fragrance Awards

What fragrances do you love?

Gwendoline Christie: I have several favorites; I like to mix things up a little bit. I love Serge Lutens. I’m so entranced by his store in Paris! I love classics like Creed, and I also love Ralph Lauren and Clinique Happy. If Brienne of Tarth [her character on Game of Thrones] had a fragrance, it would smell like fresh grass. Let’s launch it tonight!

Coco Rocha Fragrance Awards

What fragrance did your mother wear?

Coco Rocha: My mom wore a mix of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and Michael Kors. The other day I was there and I sprayed his fragrance on, and it brought back so many memories! [The connection] is so powerful!

Michael C Hall Fragrance Awards

If Dexter had a fragrance, what would it smell like?

Michael C. Hall: It would be a very sharp, decisive smell. There would be blood, steel and plastic notes in it. It would be appropriate for a man or a woman, if that man or woman deserved to wear it.

And I imagine the tagline would be, “To Kill For?”

Hall: Oh yeah. Or “To Die For.”

Angie Harmon in Giambattista Valli

Who are you wearing?

Angie Harmon: Giambattista Valli

And what are you wearing?

Harmon: Diptyque 34—It’s heaven. I love a scent that comes in a room mist, in a diffuser, in a solid. I get so many compliments on it. Normally, during the spring and summer, I’ll go lighter and florally. This one is woodsy and it’s got a little bit of musk to it, but it’s still sexy for the summer.

Dana Carvey Fragrance Awards

Shouldn’t there be an Eau de Church Lady?

Dana Carvey: There IS one. It’s called Satan’s Scent, and it’s in Nordstroms, Macy’s nationwide. I’m kidding; she doesn’t have one. Maybe Hans & Franz should have a fragrance. It definitely wouldn’t be a girly man scent.

Chrissy Teigen Fragrance Awards

Since you’re a foodie, are you into gourmet scents?

Chrissy Teigen: Well, I was just laughing with my husband about this. I’ve never personally minded garlic breath, coffee breath, or anything that smells like food [on someone]. It’s the weird scents that I hate. I switch between Tom Ford Jasmine Rouge and Dior Hypnotic Poison. I remember smelling it on Stacy Keibler and was like, “Well, my goodness! What is that?” Five years later, I’m still loving it.

Carine Roitfeld Fragrance Awards

Do you wear one fragrance, or do you own many?

Carine Roitfeld: I’m very faithful with my fragrance. For 20 years, I wore Opium [by YSL] and now I’m working on my own fragrance. It’s out in one year. I have it on right now.
