Do you think this scent will be a lady-killer for guys out there?
"It’s good. With any scent it’s about doing it in moderation. We all have an individual scent that’s like a fingerprint of who we are. I find that very sexy and very attractive. You want to enhance what you got. There’s an interesting marriage between your perfume and your own tone and scent. When you combine those, that’s when you get something very interesting and seductive and sensual. Don’t overkill! Don’t do too much. You don’t want to walk into a cloud of something that’s not you. I think it’s important to do it in a subtle way."
Is Eric from True Blood someone who would wear it?
"If he wore a scent, this would probably be it. It has that depth: that darkness, those earthy tones. This would definitely be something for him. I don’t think he wears scents though — it’s more like a drop of fairy blood behind his ears. That’s more his thing."
We're huge fans of Swedish pop music, from ABBA to Roxette. Any guilty-pleasure favorites you love?
"I listen to a lot of Swedish music actually. There are so many phenomenal bands and artists coming out of Sweden now. I think the readers should check out this artist, Anna von Hausswolf. She’s on iTunes over here in the States. Really, really amazing. In terms of guilty pleasures, I’d go with Europe. You know? The metal band from the 80’s. That’s something I crank up. I grew up listening to that, so I love listening to those songs. It brings me back."
"I’m doing some press now for two films on the festival circuit: What Maisie Knew and Disconnect."
What are you watching on TV these days? Are you into reality TV?
"No, not really. I watch Meet The Press and The Colbert Report. Those are probably the only two shows I watch. I’m a huge fan of Stephen Colbert, I think he’s a genius. And the news, I watch the news."
